What are the best prop bets when the Carolina Panthers take on the San Francisco 49ers in Week 5?

The Carolina Panthers end a long home stretch to begin the campaign with a difficult-looking clash against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 5. Matt Rhule’s men have enjoyed home comforts over four of the first five contests, but they have little to show for their efforts as yet and pressure is now mounting across the organization as a result.

San Francisco’s imposing defensive unit won’t make things any easier this weekend. The Panthers are heavy underdogs at Bank of America Stadium to the tune of 6.5 points according to FanDuel Sportsbook, which is a strong indicator of how things are currently developing in the third year of Rhule’s tenure.

This needs to be a complete performance in all phases of play. And with a trip to the defending Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams next Sunday, emerging victorious is absolutely crucial.

With that being said, we picked out three solid prop bets for anyone looking to make a wager on Carolina’s latest regular-season contest.

  • Over 50 receiving yards at +198 (FanDuel Sportsbook)

With the attention seemingly focused on Christian McCaffrey and D.J. Moore, there should once again be opportunities for Robbie Anderson to make his presence felt. Something the wide receiver hasn’t done consistently since going over 100 receiving yards in Week 1 against the Cleveland Browns.

It’s no secret that the Carolina Panthers aren’t currently clicking on offense. Ben McAdoo’s scheme is not bringing the best out of their primary playmakers and the San Francisco 49ers boast a defense capable of wreaking havoc on any given down.

Things have to start trending upward at some stage. Considering that, taking Anderson to go over 50 receiving yards at +198 (bet $100 to win $198) with FanDuel Sportsbook has a lively chance.
