Here is a look at the top three prop bets for the NFC Championship game. All the prop bets in this article can be found at Bovada sportsbook.

 (NYG vs SF) Total TD Passes – Alex Smith (SF) 

Over/Under 1.5

Alex Smith had a coming out party against the New Orleans Saints, yet he still has his doubters. After all it was just one game against a team with a suspect defense. The Giants have a much better defense, but not in the secondary. If the 49ers can give Smith protection than he should be able to get two touchdown passes in this game.

Alex Smith Over 1.5 TD passes +120

(NYG vs SF) Total Rushing Yards – Frank Gore (SF) 

Over/Under 75.5

Frank Gore is the heart beat of the 49ers offense and they lean on him to establish the run and open up the passing game. Although that is true, Gore has not had a big day rushing in the ball in quite some time. He rushed for over 75.5 yards seven times on the season and has only done it once in the last six games. The Giants strong front will keep Gore in check for this game.

Frank Gore Under 75/5 rushing yards +100

(NYG vs SF) - How many times will the name "Peyton Manning" be mentioned during the live broadcast of the game? 

Over/Under 2.5

These type of props are always fun and this one has some value. With his brother Eli Manning in the game, Peyton Manning may even be at the game. Even if he is not there, his name will be brought up on several occasions with the speculation of where he may play next season, since the Indianapolis Colts are drafting Andrew Luck. Eli has fielded questions about his brother all week long and he will ocme up at least three times in this game.

Over 2.5
