49ers vs Raiders Prediction & the Prop of the Game: Will it be Purdy in Las Vegas on New Years Day?

By | January 1, 2023

The San Fransisco 49ers travel to Las Vegas to take on the Raiders in a New Years Day showdown in the Sin City.

The 49ers get an opportunity to further their playoff position, as they are currently sitting 3rd in the NFC, but have the chance to move up if they can win out and they get some help.

On the other end, the Raiders still have a small chance to sneak into the playoffs but need a bunch of help and need to win their last 2 games for any kind of hope.

In this battle of two teams fighting for different aspirations, who will come out on top?

Here is my analysis, a game prediction and the player prop of the game!


It’s Been Very Purdy in the Bay

When Jimmy Garoppolo broke his foot on December 4th against the Dolphins, everyone assumed the 49ers season as toast.

Not so fast, my friend. Rookie QB Brock Purdy, the 7th round rookie stepped in and has been simply sensational.

The Niners have won 3 in a row with Purdy at the controls and it has even been without star wideout Deebo Samuel for the past 2 weeks.

The entire team has stepped up around Purdy.

George Kittle is playing like an All-Pro (more on him later), Christian McCaffrey has been the perfect fit since his midseason move from the Panthers and the Defense is without a doubt, the best unit in football.

If the Niners can win out and no other team can get up to 14 wins, then the NFC would run through San Fransisco.

But as it sits right now, the Niners are the 3 seed and firmly in position for a deep playoff run.

In this one against the Raiders, I have a feeling they put their foot on the gas and bury the silver and black from the get go.


Dude, Where’s my Carr?

As I mentioned, the Raiders are still in the playoff hunt statistically but it feels like they have already given up on their season.

It was announced earlier this week that Franchise QB Derek Carr would be benched the last 2 weeks of the season.

This was a big shock for many people around the league and for Carr himself.

It looks like Derek Carr has played his last snap as a Raider and will be looking for a new home headed into next season.

After this decision was made, players came out and supported Carr, such as college teammate and friend Davante Adams.

I would imagine a lot of guys in the Raiders locker room feel the same way about this decision and that doesn’t bode well for this game on Sunday and the future of this team.

With pretty much nothing to play for and the turmoil around this situation, the Raiders have a tall task, even at home, against one of the best and hottest teams in the entire league.

Can the Raiders find a way to keep this one close or will the Niners impose their will on the Silver and Black and notch another W on their belt?

Prediction

This feels like an easy bet.

I know there are no guarantees but at this point in the season, looking at both of these rosters and their position, there is only one play here.

The Niners are cruising and need to continue to pick up wins as they climb in the NFC and set themselves up for a playoff run.

The Niners should go into Las Vegas and handle their business, against Jarrett Stidham and the down and out Raiders.

Best Bet
