Brock Purdy Player Props: Super Bowl INT Prop Pick

Sunday, Feb 11
6:30 p.m. ET
Pick: Brock Purdy Over 0.5 Interceptions (-120)

The San Francisco 49ers absolutely dominated two-thirds of their regular-season contests. They locked up the top seed in the NFC a week early with a record of 12-4 through 16 games – 11 of those 12 victories were by margins of 10-plus points.

In the playoffs, however, San Francisco has played eight quarters of football, and four of them have been quite bad. In the Divisional Round, the Niners went to the fourth quarter trailing the Green Bay Packers by a score of 21-14, yet they were saved down the stretch by a 52-yard field goal and a late TD drive.

Believe it or not though, they played even worse in the first half of the NFC Championship and still managed to escape with a victory.

The Niners went to halftime of their latest affair trailing the Detroit Lions by a score of 24-7, but thanks to a series of unfortunate events for the Lions, and a handful of questionable decisions by head coach Dan Campbell, San Francisco has stumbled all the way to a Super Bowl appearance and a date with the defending champs this Sunday despite appearing incredibly vulnerable since mid-December.

Betting Picks & Predictions

It seems like the moment has been too big for Brock Purdy the last three times the 49ers have stepped into the spotlight in high-pressure situations.

He threw four interceptions in a regular-season loss to the Baltimore Ravens and then clearly felt the heat early in both of his playoff starts. He spent the first half of both contests sailing the ball over the heads of open receivers and missing short-range targets before eventually settling down and leading the Niners to a pair of comeback wins.

Purdy has thrown 12 interceptions in his last 13 starts – quite frankly, he’s fortunate that number isn’t higher after sneaking by with just one interception in the Niners’ two playoff games. The Kansas City Chiefs defense will be the best defense Purdy has faced in over a month considering San Francisco has drawn matchups against the Washington Commanders, Lions and Packers in his last three outings dating back to New Year’s Eve.

This is Purdy's shot to prove all the naysayers wrong – myself included. Maybe Purdy finally extinguished the last of his playoff jitters in the Conference Round against Detroit. But if his performances in the Niners’ last three “big games” are any indication of what’s to come, I think we’re destined to see Purdy throw an interception in the Super Bowl.
