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.
