NFL Prop Shop: Championship Sunday
And then there were four.
Championship Sunday has arrived, and Sean has narrowed it down to his best prop bet from each matchup.
Most pass receptions
Michael Crabtree vs. Roddy White: Take Crabtree
This play ultimately boils down to which secondary I have more faith in, as both receivers will receive plenty of attention on Sunday afternoon. While the 49ers pass defense has been exposed at times, I do expect them to hold their own against White. Their physicality will be enough to throw the veteran receiver off of his game.
Julio Jones and Tony Gonzalez will prove to be Matt Ryan's favorite targets on Sunday. Meanwhile, Colin Kaepernick will turn in another stellar peformance, and that translates into a big day for Michael Crabtree, who has emerged as his go-to guy (nine catches for 119 yards and two touchdowns last week).
Most rushing yards
Ray Rice vs. Stevan Ridley: Take Ridley
Ray Rice will have a heavier workload, but won't be able to outduel Stevan Ridley in terms of rushing yardage.
There's no question, the Patriots defense will be ready for Rice after he enjoyed a monster game in Denver last Saturday. The Pats have been burned by Rice before, and will undoubtedly spend plenty of practice time coming up with a gameplan to slow him down.
Ridley quietly ran for 82 yards against the Texans last Sunday, and has now gained at least 74 rushing yards in three consecutive games. With the Ravens defense focused on rattling Tom Brady, look for Ridley to enjoy another productive night.

Matt is coming off a disappointing night on the bases but vows revenge Wednesday! He went a FANTASTIC +$17,233 last year and is off to a TERRIFIC +$7,627 start TY! Playing Underdogs is the name of the game and the results going back have been OUTSTANDING! He is out for a CLEAN SWEEP on Wednesday with a trio of underdog winners! Guaranteed!
The Miami offense came to life last night in limited capacity but it was enough for the Marlins to defeat the Giants in the opener of this series. The Marlins were on a 1-6 stretch heading into last night as the offensive woes continued as Tuesday was the first time during this homestand and during the skid that they have scored more than three runs. San Francisco had its two-game winning streak snapped and was held to fewer than six runs for the first time in six games. The Giants have been solid on the road this season and while Chris Heston is 5-1 on the road, he has been fortunate to receive a ton of run support. The Giants have scored eight or more runs in four of his last five road outings and are averaging 7.1 rpg in his seven road games. That changes tonight. Dan Haren is likely going to be traded to a contender and his stock has risen considerably despite allowing four runs last time out. He has a 3.38 ERA and 1.01 WHIP on the season with 10 of his 15 starts being quality outings. The Marlins have dropped his last four starts because of low run production but they are 4-0 in Haren's last four starts after scoring five runs or more in their previous game. Play (904) Miami Marlins
