Tua Tagovailoa Total Passing TDs O/U 1½
Tagovailoa has been feast or famine when it comes to touchdown passes this season, with four games with three or more touchdowns and five with one or none. That said, the Dolphins will have a tough time running the ball against the 49ers top-ranked rushing defense, so look for the third-year quarterback out of Alabama to throw often in this game.
No team has given up fewer touchdown passes than the 49ers, but they haven’t faced many offenses at the level of the Dolphins. San Francisco gave up three touchdown passes to Patrick Mahomes of the Kansas City Chiefs and a pair to Marcus Mariota of the Atlanta Falcons.
