Including last season’s playoffs, Cooper Kupp has scored a touchdown in nine straight games, two of which were against the 49ers. Kupp has also scored in 12 of his last 13 games.
Last week against the Cardinals, he found pay dirt on a 20-yard rush.
So, how on earth is Cooper Kupp -110 to score a touchdown tonight against the 49ers? DraftKings went one step further, boosting Kupp's Anytime Touchdown Scorer odds to +150.
According to our Anytime Touchdown Scorer expert, Gilles Gallant, Kupp was -175 in the Rams’ Week 10 matchup last season on the road against the 49ers, and he was -150 in Week 18. For the NFC Championship Game, Kupp was -170.
Kupp didn’t score in Week 10 (he only had 11 catches for 122 yards), but he did in Week 18 and the one that mattered in the playoffs.
Kupp is not coming off his most convincing receiving performance. He only had four catches on six targets for 44 yards against the Cardinals. He didn’t waste time in finding the end zone, though, with his 20-yard rush coming in the first quarter.
The Rams’ star receiver was -150 at FanDuel to score a touchdown last week. So, why the sudden change?
The Action Labs Player Props tool is slightly down on Kupp this week, projecting him for 7.6 receptions and 88.6 receiving yards, below his betting lines of 8.5 receptions and 93.5 receiving yards.
The 49ers defense is also very, very good. That unit enters tonight’s game ranked No. 1 in Football Outsiders’ Defense DVOA, ranking fourth against the pass and first against the run.
