The San Francisco 49ers proved they were the class of the NFC by beating the Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions en route to Super Bowl LVIII.
The 49ers were the hottest team after the annual NFL trade deadline and they carried that momentum into the playoffs.
San Francisco may have had to come from behind to beat Green Bay and Detroit, but they got the job done and now must face off against a motivated Kansas City team.
Head coach Kyle Shanahan has all the talent and pieces he needs to finally win his first Super Bowl ring, and Christian McCaffrey should be a large part of the gameplan.
McCaffrey transformed the offense during the regular season and has been the most reliable running back in the league.
Because of McCaffrey’s nose for the end zone, one individual placed a hefty bet on him to score a touchdown in the Super Bowl, via Action Network.
“One bettor @CircaSports has $100K on Christian McCaffrey to score a TD (-235) today.”

Betting $100,000 on McCaffrey is quite the gutsy call, though the odds all favor the running back to put up points against the Chiefs.
McCaffrey is a dual-threat player that can do just about anything on the field and his versatility presents numerous problems for defenses.
He is hard to bring down because of his great balance, but is also shifty and can make tacklers miss in the open field.
Shanahan isn’t afraid to give McCaffrey all the work he can handle and it’ll be interesting to see if he pays off that person’s bet.NEXT: Eli Manning Makes His Thoughts Clear About Brock Purdy
