Best NFL Bets & Wild Card Betting Picks | 49ers vs. Cowboys

On its surface, this game will be visually appealing to viewers with such a historic matchup between two teams with very distinct uniforms. The three seed Cowboys will play host to the six seed 49ers in a game which features the highest over/under of the week. With the highest total and a 3-point spread, Sunday’s matchup has all the makings to be the best game of the weekend. The 49ers offense is very dynamic while the Cowboys have been a surprise on the defensive side of the football with the emergence of rookie duo Trevon Diggs and Micah Parsons. Although the Cowboys have improved on defense, they do rank in the bottom half of the league against the run while the 49ers are seventh in rushing yards per game.

The 49ers are coming into this matchup winners of seven of their last nine games down the stretch. This team has hit its stride and gotten healthy at the perfect time and now find themselves with a game they matchup quite well in. The 49ers rushing offense is so incredibly unique and allows every offensive weapon to get involved which should be the unit that controls the pace of this game. Deebo Samuel had 1,405 yards receiving, 365 yards rushing and fifteen total touchdowns which included eight on the ground in the regular season. Looking at his numbers alone, it proves just how creative Kyle Shanahan, and his offense is and although they have shown a lot of looks, they have almost assuredly saved a few tricks for the playoffs.

Although Jimmy Garoppolo is battling injury, he was able to lead his team to a comeback victory in week 18 against the division rival Rams. After seeing his competent performance last week, there should be no concern about his health status and that is why the play of the weekend is San Francisco 49ers +3. As the odds continue to move, be sure to continue to monitor the market and if a +3.5 becomes available jump all over it. The 49ers have emerged as a team that has a solid defense and explosive offense with a great running game. The style and approach the 49ers pride themselves on just happens to be the same style that wins playoff football games. Put your trust in Kyle Shanahan outcoaching Mike McCarthy in what should be an entertaining game Sunday afternoon.
