Jimmy Garoppolo Over 20.5 Competitions (-120, Caesars)

Projected ROI – 38%, Projected Win – 75%
DraftKings: -120; o20.5

Dallas has allowed 21.4 completions on 36.0 opponent pass attempts per game over the regular season. While this average drops slightly over their last three games to 20.7, Garoppolo has been on a nice streak since December. In his last four games he’s recorded an average of 23.5 completions while hitting the over on this prop in three of the four games. The 49ers enter this matchup as 3.0-point underdogs which could produce more pass attempts and with Garoppolo’s completion percentage for the season sitting at 68.3%, he projects to only need 31 pass attempts to beat this over. In spite of being one of the run-heavy offenses in the NFL, San Francisco’s quarterback has gone over 31 pass attempts in five games this season with three occurrences coming in the last four games. He’s trending in the right direction and projected for 24.0 completions suggesting game script could push this to an easy win.

Ezekiel Elliott Over 47.5 Yards Rushing (-114, FanDuel)

Projected ROI – 32%, Projected Win – 70%
SugarHouse: -114; o47.5

Despite only surpassing this total in three of his last ten games, Elliott enters this matchup coming off 87 rushing yards a week ago against a stout Philadelphia rush defense. Concurrently, Awesemo has him projected for 67.1 rush yards in this contest and he’s coming off his highest rushing attempts (18) since Week 5. Nonetheless, San Francisco presents a solid run defense, having not allowed a running back to amass 48 rushing yards in four straight appearances. Joe Mixon was the last to beat this prop against the 49ers with 18 rushes for 58 scoreless yards back in Week 14. As a road team, San Francisco has seen 26.2 opponent rush attempts this season and with Elliott handling the seventh most carries in football expect a healthy dose to come his way on Sunday. 

George Kittle Over 50.5 Yards Receiving  (-110, FanDuel)

Projected ROI – 36%, Projected Win – 71%
Caesars: -115; o50.5

Stacking Kittle’s receiving yards prop with Garoppolo’s could yield a lucrative Sunday. Throw in his receptions prop of 4.5 if you’re really feeling the Niners in this affair to further maximize your winnings. Each prop ranks in the top-10 of expected ROI and top-15 of expected win regardless of Kittle’s uninspiring three-game stretch. Since Week 16, (arguably) the league’s best tight end has posted eight receptions for 60 scoreless yards. Kittle began December exposing defenses, he averaged 9.3 receptions for 141.7 yards and a touchdown from Week 13-15. Dallas has allowed 78 receptions for 887 yards on the season. The former Iowa Hawkeye has played two less games than Deebo Samuel but trails in total receptions by only six while commanding the second-highest target share (24.9) at the tight end position.
