The Los Angeles Rams and San Francisco 49ers are set to clash on Monday Night Football tonight in what should be a competitive contest. Los Angeles enters as a 3.5-point favorite, but the prop betting markets are where the real value lies in this game.

These player props, in particular, are worth taking a look at, as there are several opportunities to make smart plays ahead of tonight’s showdown in Santa Clara.

Matthew Stafford Under 286.5 Yards (-115)

Matthew Stafford is dealing with an ankle injury, though that shouldn’t keep him on the sidelines for this game. What it will do, however, is keep him from playing his best football like it did down the stretch against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday Night Football last week. For that reason, the under on Stafford’s passing yardage prop is worth taking a look at coming into this contest.

Making things worse for Stafford is that he is going to be without one of his top targets in Robert Woods, as Woods suffered a knee injury during practice this week. That will allow the Niners to give more attention to Cooper Kupp and the other weapons in the Rams’ receiving corps. While the Rams could still win this game, Stafford will have a harder time than usual completing passes down the field.

Matthew Stafford Under 2.5 Rushing Yards (-110)

Stafford is also going to go under the 2.5 rushing yards mark when the Rams square off with the 49ers tonight. Stafford isn’t known for running the football by any stretch of the imagination, but his ankle situation is only going to further slow him down. Stafford has only gone over this number in three of the Rams’ first nine games this season, and he is going to fail to reach that mark again in this matchup.

When dealing with quarterback rushing yardage props, it is always worth looking at the number of rushing attempts that the quarterback amasses in their games. Stafford has eclipsed two rushing attempts in just two games this season. With the ankle injury, he isn’t likely to try and run often tonight, and the potential for late-game kneel downs could keep him under three yards with relative ease.

Deebo Samuel Anytime Touchdown Scorer (+150)

On the Niners side, it is worth taking a look at Deebo Samuel to get into the end zone in this game. From a mathematical perspective, Samuel is a decent value to score, as he has scored in four of the Niners’ eight games so far this season. Getting better than even money on what has been a 50/50 proposition so far this year is certainly a bet worth making, especially at +150.

Samuel is a player that the Niners use in a number of ways offensively. They give him the ball regularly both as a receiver and a rusher, which makes him dangerous around the goal line. In a division game where the Niners are an underdog, it is likely that Kyle Shanahan will try and get Samuel involved in some sort of misdirection that will lead to a score.
