  • Brock Purdy has -115 odds to go over 222.5 passing yards against the Eagles.

PHILADELPHIA - Brock Purdy of the San Francisco 49ers has never lost a game in the NFL, and now he’ll be the center of attention in the NFC Championship Game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Total Passing Yards - Brock Purdy

  • Over 222.5 -115
  • Under 222.5 -115

Purdy’s 222.5 projected passing yards are about bang-on for him – he’s gone over that number three times and under it five times.

Even the vaunted Dallas Cowboys defense gave up 200+ to Purdy, although his 214 yards were not enough to hit this O/U.

Total Passing Attempts In The Game - Brock Purdy (SF)

  • Over 31.5 -115
  • Under 31.5 -115

The Super Bowl sportsbooks expect Purdy to throw a lot more than he usually does. He only has two games with more than 31.5 passes.

The first one was his first start of the year, in which he threw 37 times against the Miami Dolphins, and the second was in Week 17 against the Las Vegas Raiders.

Perhaps this high expectation for amount of throws suggests that overs on his Passing Yards might not be as unlikely as an NFL betting fan might think.

If Purdy throws more than usual, it stands to reason that he might get more yards. After all, his 214 against Dallas came on only 29 attempts.

Total Passing Touchdowns - Brock Purdy

  • Over 1.5 +135
  • Under 1.5 -180

Purdy has a plethora of weapons at his disposal, and both Deebo Samuel and Christian McCaffrey are players who can turn any routine pass into a touchdown credited to Purdy.

Purdy was riding a streak of games with 2 or more passing touchdowns when he entered the Divisional Round against the Cowboys, but that streak was broken by the Cowboys defense.

The 49ers kicked four field goals en route to a 19-12 victory, while Purdy passed for zero touchdowns.

Still, that makes him 7-1 on the season as far as this prop goes.

Brock Purdy and the San Francisco 49ers will take on the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship Game at 3:00 p.m. EST on Sunday.
