Jalen Hurts Player Props Vs. San Francisco 49ers
Total Rushing Yards
- Over 46.5 -114
- Under 46.5 -114
NFL online sportsbooks have Hurts’s rushing yard total set a bit low considering how he’s done in his last eight games. Over that eight-game span, he is averaging 58.5 rushing yards per game. On the season as a whole, he’s putting up 49.6 rushing yards per game. He has gone over in seven of his 17 games played this season and in this matchup with the San Francisco 49ers, there is reason to believe he’ll go over once more.
The Philadelphia Eagles gameplan consists of a more run-heavy attack as they are running the ball on 49.29% of their plays which is the fifth most in the league. The Eagles are also averaging the fifth most rushing yards per attempt this season at 4.7 which has jumped to 5.1 in their last three games. On the defensive side of things, the Niners do have a stingy run defense, however, with Hurts as QB, he has plenty more opportunities to extend plays as he has done all season.
The San Francisco 49ers has been decent this season in securing sacks with 2.5 per game meaning the pressure does get to the QB often which would force Hurts to roll out more and find positive yards on the ground.
Total Rushing Attempts
- Over 9.5 -136
- Under 9.5 +104
Helping Hurts’ case to go over 9.5 rushing attempts is the fact that they are a run heavier team.

Over those last eight games, he has seen some run-heavy game scripts that saw him go for a 16-attempt game and two 17-attempt games.
One QB that plays a similar running role to Hurts this season has been Justin Fields who played the 49ers in Week 1 of the season and had 11 rushing attempts.
