The Arizona Cardinals reportedly will have a key piece of their offense active on Sunday, as Marquise Brown is expected to play against the San Francisco 49ers despite a thumb injury. 

This is a great sign for Arizona, who would love to pull off another upset this week after beating the Dallas Cowboys in Week 3.

Hollywood Brown is listed as questionable, but he’s expected to play barring a setback in pre-game warm ups.

Best Marquise Brown prop bet for Week 4 vs. San Francisco 49ers

Marquise Brown OVER 45.5 receiving yards

The 49ers have one of the best defenses in the NFL, but I think Brown is a little undervalued in this prop, especially since the Cardinals are likely going to be playing from behind. 

Brown has cleared this number in back-to-back games, and he’s caught a touchdown in each as well. 

A deep-ball threat, Brown could end up clearing this with just one catch. I love him to hit the OVER on Sunday.
