Jimmy Garoppolo Over 236.5 Passing Yards (-115)
While many expected Trey Lance to take the starting job from Garoppolo by now, the veteran quarterback has played well lately. He has averaged 244 passing yards per game this season, throwing for at least 295 yards in two of the past three games. Furthermore, Garoppolo has averaged 258.3 passing yards per game over the past eight weeks. Meanwhile, the Titans have given up an average of 261.2 passing yards per game this season to quarterbacks. They have given up over 270 passing yards to quarterbacks in 64.3 percent of the games this season, including seven of the past 11 games. With a healthy George Kittle on the field, Garoppolo could finish with over 270 passing yards in this contest.
D’Onta Foreman Over 45.5 Rushing Yards (-115)
With Derrick Henry on the sidelines because of a foot injury, Foreman has taken over as the lead back in Tennessee. Over the past three games, he has averaged 18 rushing attempts and 88 rushing yards per game. Furthermore, Foreman had at least 47 rushing yards in every game, totaling over 100 rushing yards in two of those three contests. Meanwhile, the 49ers have given up an average of 79.3 rushing yards per game this season to running backs. They have given up at least 67 rushing yards to running backs in three of the past four games. The focal point of the Tennessee offense in the running game. As the lead back, Foreman is more likely to finish with over 100 rushing yards tonight than under 46 rushing yards.
George Kittle Over 5.5 Receptions (-135)
Since returning from a calf injury, Kittle has been unstoppable. Over the past seven weeks, Kittle has averaged 6.3 receptions on 7.7 targets per game to go along with six receiving touchdowns. Furthermore, he has averaged 6.3 receptions per game since returning from the injury, totaling six or more in over half the games. More importantly, Kittle has averaged 5.7 receptions per game this season. Meanwhile, the Titans have given up an average of 5.2 receptions per game to tight ends over their past 10 games, giving up five receptions or more in six of those contests. While the Titans have played well against tight end this season, they haven’t faced a superstar like Kittle. Expect him to hit the over on this prop bet early in the fourth quarter.
Ryan Tannehill Under 217.5 Passing Yards (-115)
Reports are the Titans will have Julio Jones for tonight’s game and might have A.J. Brown. However, even if both play, expect Tannehill to have a quiet performance. After averaging 238.7 passing yards per game last year, Tannehill has averaged only 222.7 passing yards per game this season. More importantly, he has averaged only 206.4 passing yards per game over the past 10 games, totaling under 200 passing yards in half of those games. Furthermore, Tannehill has thrown for over 215 passing yards only once in the last six contests. Meanwhile, the 49ers have held quarterbacks to only 228.9 passing yards per game this season, the seventh-fewest in the NFL. Expect the Titans to lean on the running game in this contest, limiting Tannehill’s passing upside tonight.
Brandon Aiyuk Over 50.5 Receiving Yards (-115)
Despite having only one reception on two targets last week, Aiyuk finished with 36 receiving yards. However, he averaged 68 receiving yards per game over the previous six games, totaling 55 or more receiving yards in five of those games. Furthermore, Aiyuk has averaged 61.1 receiving yards per game over the past eight weeks. Meanwhile, the Titans have given up an average of 189.6 receiving yards per game to wide receivers this season, the second-most in the NFL. They have given up at least 165 receiving yards to wide receivers in 71.4 percent of games this season. After a poor performance last week, expect the 49ers to get Aiyuk involved in the passing game early tonight. He could hit the over on this prop bet by halftime.
