The interesting part about the betting offensive NFC West player props in Week 13 is that each team faces a good or great defense. The Los Angeles Rams take on the fearsome Cleveland Browns defense, the San Francisco 49ers meet the Philadelphia Eagles, and the Arizona Cardinals square off against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
These matchups make choosing NFL picks on player props harder, but we do get more profitable odds to work with. Let’s get into it.
Here’s a look at some NFL odds to consider.
49ers: Christian McCaffrey
The first of our NFL player props for Week 13 features a familiar face in 49ers running back Christian McCaffrey. It’s been a few weeks since I’ve listed CMC on my player props list after he failed to score a TD in Week 10 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. It was the first time McCaffrey failed to score all year, and I decided to lay him off for a few weeks.
Christian McCaffrey’s stats this season…
• 939 rushing yards
• 4.9 yards per carry
• 389 receiving yards
• 120.7 scrimmage YPG
• 16 TDs pic.twitter.com/WOIuGX94cc

Well, after scoring three touchdowns in the two games following the Jags game, it’s time I stopped giving money away and jumped back on the McCaffrey money train. Honestly, with 16 touchdowns in 11 games, I don’t feel like I have to dive deep into CMC’s stats. It would be unusual for him not to score, so he is the lead bet online for me this week.
Regarding the Eagles’ defense, as fearsome as they are on paper, they have not been consistently putting their skill to work. They rank 20th in scoring and 13th in yards per rush. Despite the fact that they are the third-best team at limiting opponents’ rushing touchdowns, McCaffrey is matchup proof and worth an addition to all Week 13 parlays.

Rams: Puka Nacua Under 53.5 Receiving Yards
Rams’ rookie wideout Puka Nacua has shown his team and the league that LA did well in drafting him to their roster. Nacua averaged 9.8 catches and 125 yards per game in his first five games of the season, making him a quality NFL betting value on player props.
However, though no fault of his own, since Week 5, Nacua is averaging around half his early-season stats with less than five catches and around 60 yards per matchup. I say his dropoff is not entirely his fault because the dip in production coincides with the return of star WR Cooper Kupp.
Not only has Nucua been losing reps, but he’s also up against the Browns, who have one of the most sturdy defenses in the NFL. He’s already gone Under this total in four of his last seven, I don’t see him breaking out against such a talented secondary in Week 13.
