Best Player Prop Bets for Giants at 49ers
After a wild and whacky NFL Week 2, Thursday Night Football on Amazon Prime gets Week 3 kick-started with an interesting NFC matchup. The New York Giants will fly west to take on the San Francisco 49ers.
The Niners are 2-0 and have looked like one of the teams to beat in the NFC once again this season. The Giants are 1-1, but they’ve looked anything but good so far. They needed a miracle comeback just to get by a depleted Cardinals team last week.
At the time of this writing, San Fran is listed as a 10-point favorite and the total is sitting at 44.5. While we love betting sides and totals, it’s usually more valuable to attack the player prop market. Here are 2 of the best player prop bets for Giants at 49ers. Good luck!

Brock Purdy UNDER 230.5 Passing Yards (DraftKings)
This one’s a little tough to hit submit on, especially since the G-Men’s pass defense has been atrocious to start the season. That being said, the game script should favor an Under from Mr. Purdy. Let’s talk about it a little more in-depth.
San Fran is a double-digit favorite and they have the edge on both sides of the ball. The Niners should be able to build a big lead in the second half. If that happens, we all know that Kyle Shanahan will simply pound the rock the rest of the game.
That should limit Purdy’s passing opportunities. Aside from the game script, Purdy’s median passing yardage through 10 full career games is just 215.5. Look for San Fran to pound Christian McCaffrey and Elijah Mitchell early and often. Let’s ride the Under!
Darius Slayton OVER 32.5 Receiving Yards (Unibet)
Boy, this line sure does look too low! Slayton’s season has gotten off to a slow start, so I think we’re getting a bargain with this low number. In 2022, Slayton’s median receiving yardage was 63! That’s almost double this line!
Yes, I know that the Niners have a good secondary and that the overall matchup for Slayton will be tough. However, the Giants should be trailing for most of this game. That should mean more passing plays for Danny Dimes and this offense.
As far as trends go, we found another solid one in our favor. Slayton has gone over this receiving yardage total in 10 of his last 15 games. This over looks mighty good, so that’s the way we’ll play this one.
