The San Francisco 49ers and Philadelphia Eagles possess two of the NFL's finest defences, but a select few players will likely find the end zone on Sunday.

The pregame narrative: Jalen Hurts has been the key to Philadelphia's red zone offence since taking over behind centre, George Kittle is Brock Purdy's favourite target and Christian McCaffrey is scoring at an incredible clip for the 49ers.

49ers vs. Eagles TD picks

Best Bet: Hurts anytime touchdown (+123)

San Francisco's defence is a tough nut to crack as it conceded the fifth-fewest passing touchdowns and eighth-fewest rushing touchdowns during the regular season — and the unit has conceded just four trips to the end zone in the playoffs.

That has us targeting an unconventional weapon San Francisco may be ill-equipped to handle.

49ers/Eagles Super Boost: Eagles moneyline & McCaffrey 100+ rushing/receiving yards (+495, was +330). Click to bet

The 49ers allowed just two rushing touchdowns to quarterbacks this season, but they only faced two signal callers notable for their wheels: Justin Fields and Marcus Mariota.

Although they shut down Fields, Week 1's monsoon conditions played a role there. Mariota managed 50 rushing yards and a touchdown.

That small sample doesn't make us confident in the 49ers' ability to handle quarterback rushers one way or another, but we'll embrace the ambiguity when the other roads to the end zone seem perilous.

Hurts has been nothing short of a monster in the red zone this season with 14 touchdowns in 16 starts, and six scores in his last four outings.

The quarterback is Philadelphia's best weapon, and there will be no hesitance to use him aggressively with a Super Bowl berth on the line.

Key stat: Hurts has scored a touchdown in 10 of his 16 starts this season.

Quick picks

Kittle anytime touchdown (+165): Although the star tight end hasn't found the end zone yet this postseason, we see a reversal of fortune coming his way.

Purdy has found him for seven touchdowns in his first seven career starts, helped by the fact that Kittle is capable of making things happen after the catch.

One of the strengths of Philadelphia's league-best passing defence is its corner duo of James Bradberry and Darius Slay. Purdy could be looking for Kittle over the middle of the field all afternoon.

McCaffrey anytime touchdown (-132): There's a solid heaping of juice here, but it's worth paying for a guy who has found the end zone in eight consecutive games.

We like the star running back's ability to score through the air or on the ground, and he's taken a bigger role since Purdy became San Francisco's starter. In the five games McCaffrey played with the 49ers before the rookie took the reigns, he averaged 16.6 touches an outing.

Since then, he has averaged 20.1.
