5 Sunday Night Football prop bets to make in Week 4
Odds via BetMGM; access USA TODAY Sports’ betting odds for a full list. Lines last updated 9:35 a.m. ET.
Eagles QB Carson Wentz OVER 229.5 passing yards (-112)
If the Eagles want to upset the 49ers Sunday night, they are going to need Wentz to play much better than he did over the first three weeks of the season. He will also need to do so without the likes of WRs DeSean Jackson and Alshon Jeffrey, and TE Dallas Goedert.
His passing yardage total is set at just 229.5, which should be fairly easy for him to accomplish given the state of the 49ers’ secondary. Look for Wentz to throw around 35-36 passes and hit a few big ones down the field.
49ers RB Jerick McKinnon OVER 57.5 rushing yards (-112)
With both Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman out for this contest, it will be the McKinnon show once again in San Fransico. While he struggled as a full-time back last week, averaging only 2.7 yards per carry, he did receive 14 carries against the New York Giants. Given the workload he should see in this contest, 58 or more yards seems likely.

Eagles WR Greg Ward’s longest reception OVER 18.5 yards (-118)
With all of the top receivers out for the Eagles this week, they will again rely on former college QB Ward to shoulder the load on offense. Last week, Ward caught eight passes for 72 yards and a touchdown and has proven to be a weapon down the field.
Given he is Philadelphia’s only deep threat, look for the Eagles to take multiple shots down the field to him in this contest. Don’t be surprised if he ends up with multiple 20-plus-yard receptions.
49ers QB Nick Mullens UNDER 266.5 passing yards (-112)
Ideally, the 49ers would love to take the ball out of Mullen’s hands in this game. They want to rely on their run game and defense to win them their third-straight contest. It’s not hard to believe he will throw only 28-30 passes in this game, just enough to keep the chains moving.
Take the Under with confidence as it’s unlikely the 49ers are going to open up their passing attack too much against the Eagles.
Carson Wentz to score (rushing/receiving) and the Eagles win (+1200)
If you are searching for a fun long-shot bet on the Eagles, consider betting on Wentz to score a rushing touchdown and for Philadelphia to win. Wentz may have to use his legs more in this contest and it wouldn’t be a surprise if the Eagles used his size and athleticism more near the end zone given all of their injuries at wide receiver.
The Eagles are +295 money line underdogs, so you are getting quite a good value on them in this parlay.
