49ers to Cowboys split picks

Latest odds:

Dallas Cowboys -3

“SLIME TIME, BABY! Nick’s playoff game is back and CBS has landed a big game with two longtime NFC rivals going head-to-head in this Sunday afternoon meatball game that should draw tons of eyeballs, especially when parents get kids to watch via the fun and goofy nature of the Nick show. And the game will be awesome too; it’s the tightest split all weekend, with the Cowboys favored by just one field goal. More than a few people believe the Niners can pull off the upset outright, including myself. Dallas will probably be able to score, but I think the issue here is that the Cowboys are unable to slow down the 49ers running game Kyle Shanahan has been cooking through the second half of the season and Deebo Samuel is fully healthy and ready to roll. I love the Over there, but I think the Niners are the best game here.” – Will Brinson, CBS Sports’ senior NFL writer and host of the Pick Six podcast, is on the 49ers!

“The 49ers are the team no one wanted to see in the playoffs. They’re built to run. They’re tough and can run the ball, which the Denver Broncos have shown this season could be a problem for the Cowboys. Dallas’ offense got back on track against the Eagles’ JV team last week, but it’s a much tougher challenge with the 49ers defensive line putting in a dominating performance last week against the Rams I think it will impact the passing game of Dallas and Dak Prescott I think it’s the surprise of the week The 49ers will use their running game and passing rush while making some explosive shots to move on to the next round.- CBS Sports senior NFL columnist Pete Prisco likes the 49ers to pull off the upset.

“Are the Cowboys a legitimate contender or not? They went 6-0 against their terrible division and 6-5 against everyone else! Dak Prescott and this offense are capable of lighting the scoreboard, but the 49ers know both controlling possession time, and being creative on offense.The 49ers are known for their ground game.Whether it’s Elijah Mitchell, Deebo Samuel or JaMycal Hasty carrying the rock, the running offense 7 in the league knows how to assert his dominance.Yet something really stood out to me when they won against the Rams last week.Jimmy Garoppolo had a solid outing, and it was because of the talent of his wide. Samuel had 140 total yards and a touchdown. He also threw a touchdown to Jauan Jennings, who caught six passes for 94 yards and two scores. Brandon Aiyuk also had several big plays, as he caught six passes for 107 yards.

“I’m leaning towards upset here. This 49ers team can compete with anyone, and if they have a legit passing offense, watch out.” – Jordan Dajani of CBS Sports also likes the 49ers. To read his picks, click here.

“The problem for Quinn’s defense is that they’ve struggled to stop the run for the past few months. While everyone’s focus has been on the offensive crisis the Cowboys have been in, their defense has also struggled at times. Since Week 9, he’s given up 130 yards per game rushing, which is one of the worst numbers in the NFL over that span.The Cowboys are 2-4 this year when giving up more 125 rushing yards and they face a 49ers team that likes to run the ball.

“Also, I still don’t know how good the Cowboys are. Although they went 12-5, half of their wins came down to their division: Dallas went 6-0 against the NFC East, but just 6-5 On the other hand, the 49ers seemed to thrive in non-split games: San Francisco went 2-4 in NFC West play, but 8-3 against everyone else.

“If the Cowboys are truly Team USA, then I feel sorry for the 49ers because America is going to hate them after this game.” – CBS Sports’ John Breech also likes that the 49ers upset “Team America.” To read his full column, click here.

49ers overall Cowboys picks

Latest odds:

Over 51

“The 49ers are 8-8-1 against the Over while the Cowboys are 8-9. However, Dallas is 5-3 against the Over at home. The Over/Under are currently listed to 51 points and the Cowboys have scored 51-under on their own twice in their last three games. They’re the league’s No. 1 offense for a reason, but the 49ers have also shown their ability to follow the scoreboard. If there’s a game in Super Wild Card Weekend I have to choose to go over, it’s the one.” -Jordan Dajani of CBS Sports

Player Accessories

CeeDee Lamb receiving yards: over 63.5 (-130). Lamb hasn’t crossed that number in the last two outings, but doesn’t that just feel like this could be a big CeeDee game? He has reached that mark in nine of 16 games played this season.

Jauan Jennings: Over 29.5 (-105). Jennings came out last week against the Rams when he caught six passes for 94 yards and two touchdowns. I think the 49ers will try to get him going again. I don’t expect him to catch two touchdowns or anything, but I think he can get 30 receiving yards.

Jimmy Garoppolo interceptions: Over 0.5 (-135). Garoppolo has thrown two interceptions in each of the last two games and seven interceptions in the last six games.

Touchdowns by Dak Prescott pass: over 1.5 (-210). Too juicy to play alone, but throw it in an even game bet.
