The Philadelphia Eagles and San Francisco 49ers will square off tomorrow afternoon at the Linc for a shot at representing the NFC in the Super Bowl. The game is between the top two seeds in the NFC and both are playing extremely well right now. The game is going to be close, and here are three plays that could potentially win you a little bit of money. All odds are presented by FanDuel. As always, bet responsibly.
#1 A.J. Brown anytime touchdown (+150)
In the divisional round against the New York Giants Brown had an extremely subpar performance. He only had three catches for 22 yards in the game and was a little nicked up toward the end of the game. Brown will be playing this week and after not being completely utilized last week, expect Nick Sirianni to get Brown the ball early and often. The value at +150 is the most intriguing part. You know Brown is going to get his red zone targets and he should be able to cash in on one. Expect a big bounce-back game from one of the best wide receivers in the NFL.
Sirianni says AJ Brown was visibly upset on the sideline about an injury that was nagging him, but says he feels he’ll be ready to go this week. When asked if it was about usage, “Every good WR wants the ball. I can assure you he was thrilled w/ the win”.pic.twitter.com/qBn6lQPpqD

#2 Brock Purdy to throw an interception (-162)
Purdy has been the talk of football over the last month. Mr. Irrelevant has led the 49ers on this dominating run and he has yet to lose a game. Purdy has looked good, but he’s walking into a whole different beast on Sunday. Purdy has yet to turn the ball over this postseason, but he hasn’t played a defense like the Eagles. It will be his first road playoff game in his career and the hostile 70,000+ at the Linc are going to make him feel it. We saw James Bradberry pick off Daniel Jones last week and expect Purdy to fall victim to another Eagles pick this week.
Eagles money line (-152)
The Eagles stand as favorites in this contest, holding a marginal -2.5 line heading into the game. The 49ers have the best defense in the NFL and their weapons on offense are versatile and explosive. A lot is being talked about how good this Niners team is, but don’t forget about how good this Eagles team is. The biggest takeaway in the playoffs is quarterback play. Purdy has looked great thus far, but can you trust him in a game of this magnitude? Jalen Hurts has been in games like this before. The pressure is nothing new to him. The game will be close, it will be physical, and it will be loud, but I’m taking the Eagles in a tight one.
