The Cincinnati Bengals host their third straight game on Sunday and it’ll be against the San Francisco 49ers. Both teams are in the No. 7 spot of the playoff seedings so a win here is a must for both sides, but that can’t happen, unfortunately.

Let’s take a look at three of the best prop bets to make for Bengals-49ers. All odds are courtesy of WynnBET.

Cincinnati Bengals Prop Bets

1. Joe Burrow Passing Touchdowns (1.5) 

As good as Joe Burrow has been this season, he hasn’t been throwing many touchdown passes here recently. In his past four games, he’s thrown one or zero scores.

While Burrow is a very talented quarterback, he’s starting to lean more on the run game and not relying on big plays. He’s also coming off of an injury to his pinky finger on his throwing hand, which could limit the amount of times he throws the ball.

This is why his touchdown numbers have decreased in recent weeks and it’s why I’d go with the under here.

Prediction: Under (+125)

2. Tee Higgins Receptions (5.5)

The hottest player on the Bengals’ offense lately is 2020 second-round pick, Tee Higgins. The dude has been absolutely on fire the past two games, going for over 100 yards receiving in both of those games. He’s also had no fewer than six receptions during that time.

As long as teams are double-covering Ja’Marr Chase, Higgins will continue to be open and as such, his monster games should continue. Higgins had nine receptions last week and while I don’t foresee him passing that number, getting to six catches shouldn’t be a problem.

Prediction: Over (+100)

3. Ja’Marr Chase Receiving Yards (66.5) 

After an explosive start to his NFL career through the first seven games of the season, Ja’Marr Chase has cooled off significantly. He’s cooled off so much that he’s no longer the favorite for Offensive Rookie of the Year and at this point, probably isn’t going to win the award.

This week, Chase’s receiving yard total is set at 66.5, which he hasn’t amassed since that crazy Week 7 game against the Ravens where he went for over 200 yards. This is why it’d make sense to bet the under here, as Chase just hasn’t been the same guy lately and while that’s not his fault, it makes betting the over difficult.

Prediction: Under (-115)
