DeVonta Smith prop bets for NFC Championship Game
Longest reception: Over 24.5 yards
Smith has the speed to break away for huge gains with a reception that went for at least 28 yards in five of his last seven games. With plenty of attention on AJ Brown, there’s a good chance Smith can pull off at least one chunk play in this matchup despite going up against a strong 49ers defense.
Under 5.5 receptions (-155)
Smith’s two highest target totals came with Gardner Minshew throwing the ball, and it feels like this is a game where Brown will be utilized more in the offense after not doing a whole lot in the divisional round. With a healthy Jalen Hurts, Smith failed to catch six passes in four games in a row before reaching that total in consecutive contests against the New York Giants.
Under 65.5 receiving yards (-115)
The Eagles' passing attack will not have the success it usually does going up against this 49ers' defense. Additionally, both teams like to keep the ball on the ground more than most NFL teams, which will make for fewer plays in the game and fewer chances for Smith to exceed this yardage total.
