5DimesQB Colin Kaepernick for the San Francisco 49ers is one of the most dynamic players in the entire league. Check out some of the Colin Kaepernick prop bets that are on the board right now to bet a 5Dimes Sportsbook

Passing Yards Over/Under 218.5: For all of the great things that Kaepernick has done over the course of the last three months or so, one of the things that he hasn’t always done well is throw the football. Sure, he threw for 233 yards against the Falcons and 263 against the Packers in his first two starts, but a lot of what he was doing was throwing the ball down the field to WR Michael Crabtree and TE Vernon Davis. In the end, he has only been asked to throw the ball a total of 52 times here in the second season. In spite of the fact that Kaepernick has been beyond this number in his last five games, we aren’t all that sure that this isn’t a 50/50 proposition. You can get the ‘under’ 218.5 at +135.

Will Kaepernick Throw an Interception?: Yes is a -120 proposition, while No chimes in at +100, essentially making this a 50/50 call. And that’s about right. Kaepernick has had four games in his last eight in which he has tossed at least one interception. It seems fitting to us that the ferocious Baltimore secondary is going to get at least one off of the youngster, and -120 is about the right price to make us want to bet on him to get picked off.

Kaepernick Throws a TD Pass or an INT first?: It’s not all that often that Kaepernick gets picked off, but if you’re a believer that he will in this game, you have to think that there is at least a one in three chance that he will get intercepted before he throws a touchdown pass. If this is what you believe, you have to take the INT first at +235.

Pass Attempts Over/Under 27.5: There really hasn’t been a heck of a lot that Kaepernick has been asked to do, and the fact that we can bet on him to average fewer than eight passes per quarter over the course of this game at +105 seems to be a great bet to us.

Longest Completion Over/Under 40.5 Yards: Kaepernick has taken plenty of shots down the field, and he makes a lot of that happen with his legs. We’ve seen this Baltimore secondary get nailed for some big ones over the course of the last several weeks, and we have to think that there will be at least a few passes, probably right at the beginning of the game, where Kaepernick goes for broke. At least one should cover at least 41 yards, and +105 says that that will happen at least half the time.

TD Passes Over/Under 1.5: With the way that Kaepernick runs the ball and the way that RB Frank Gore runs it near the goal line, it’s tough to think that there are going to be oodles of touchdowns to go around for the 49ers’ passing game. We definitely think that one is a good possibility, but a second touchdown pass seems to be asking for a lot from a man that is only going to throw it 20-25 times in our eyes in the game. ‘Under’ 1.5 at -125 feels like an awesome price.

Rushing Attempts Over/Under 6.5: It seems like a slam dunk to think that Kaepernick is going to run the ball at least seven times in this game, but remember that Atlanta forced him to only run it twice. The Ravens will be watching that tape over and over again over the course of the last two weeks to try to figure out keep him in the pocket.

Rushing Yards Over/Under 43.5: Don’t do it! It’s a trap! We said that last week when Kaepernick’s over/under was 63.5 yards, and we’re saying it again, especially since we can get +140 on him to not go beyond this number. Kaepernick hasn’t gotten beyond 31 yards rushing in four of his last five games.

Scores a Rushing Touchdown?: Here’s where the price is really right for us. Kaepernick had a rushing touchdown just twice as a starter prior to the playoffs, and he didn’t have a single rushing score in any of his final three games of the regular season. We know that he is capable of doing damage, but even at -160, we have to think that Kaepernick isn’t going to score.
