3 Best Prop Bets for Cowboys vs 49ers NFC Divisional Game (McCaffrey Exploits Holes in Dallas' Run Defense)


The Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs continues on Sunday with a thrilling NFC matchup between the Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco 49ers. FanDuel Sportsbook lists the 49ers as slight 3.5-point home favorites in a game where the under is being favored on the 46.5-point total at -112 odds.

Here are three of the best prop bets for the Cowboys vs 49ers matchup, courtesy of NFL odds on FanDuel Sportsbook.

Cowboys vs 49ers Prop Bets

1. Christian McCaffrey — Rushing Yards: Over 64.5 (-114)

Christian McCaffrey destroyed the Seattle Seahawks to the tune of 119 rushing yards on 15 carries last week. While the Cowboys own a solid defense, I'm still confident that McCaffrey can hit the over on this prop. For starters, Dallas has surrendered the 11th-most rushing yards per game this season and allows an average of 123.7 on the road. On top of that, McCaffrey has hit the over on this prop in five of his last seven games, cracking the century mark in four of those outings. As long as the 49ers keep feeding him the ball, McCaffrey will continue to produce.

2. Dak Prescott — Passing Touchdowns: Over 1.5 (-102)

Dak Prescott put on a show last week, throwing 4 touchdown passes against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Though the under is favored on this week's passing TD total, I'm still siding with the over. Including the Wild Card Round, Prescott has thrown multiple TDs in nine of his 13 starts this year, including nine of his last 11. The 49ers' defense is among the NFL's best, but they've also allowed an average of two passing TDs in their last three games. Considering how Prescott also has 6 TDs in three career starts against San Francisco, he shouldn't have any issues hitting the over on this prop.

3. Dalton Schultz — Receiving Yards: Over 41.5 (-114)

Prescott looked in Dalton Schultz's direction early and often against the Bucs and it paid off. The former Stanford Cardinal finished with one of his better performances of the year, turning 7 catches into 95 receiving yards and a pair of TDs. He's now hit the over on this prop in four of his last six games. With that level of success, I see the Cowboys feeding Schultz the ball again from the get-go. He's one of Prescott's favorite weapons and that'll become even more evident with another impressive showing.
