Why Bet The Dallas Cowboys To Beat The 49ers
Dallas improved to 2-1 SU and 2-0-1 ATS after beating the Chicago Bears 31-17 last week. The Cowboys average 25.7 points per game (11th) and allow 20.0 points per game (10th).
The Cowboys average 251.0 passing yards (16th) per game. Rookie QB Dak Prescott (767 yards, 1 TD & 0 INTs) has opened the door to the QB hot seat after tossing his first TD of the season after starting 3 games. Can Tony Romo get his job back after returning from injury?
Helping Prescott’s cause was the receiver of the TD, non-other than WR Dez Bryant (11 rec, 150 yards, 1 TD). And everyone knows keeping Dez happy is every Dallas QB’s top task. The main concern going forward was a fracture that was found in Bryant’s knee this past week, leaving him week-to-week as we near game day.
Slot receiver Cole Beasley (20 rec, 213 yards, 0 TDs) has been Dallas most top pass catcher this season.
Dallas averages 134.0 rushing yards per game (6th). Rookie RB Ezekiel Elliot (71 car, 274 yards, 2 TDs) is the top tailback in a crowded backfield that includes Alfred Morris and Darren McFadden. Elliot failed to find the end zone against the Bears after recording 140 rushing yards.
Dallas has the 22nd-ranked total defense in the NFL. They give up 290.0 passing yards per game (23th) and 89.3 rushing yards per game (10th). They have sacked opposite quarterbacks four times this season (21st).
Why Bet The San Francisco 49ers To Beat The Cowboys Odds
The 49ers notched their second loss of the season after getting hammered by the Seattle Seahawks with 37-18 score last week. San Francisco dropped to 1-2 SU and 1-2 ATS. They average 24.3 points per game (14th) and allow 27.7 points per game (23rd).
The Niners average 175.3 passing yards (30th) per game. QB Blaine Gabbert (532 yards, 3 TDs & 3 INTs) completed 14 of his 25 pass attempts for a mere 119 yards and an interception with zero TDs. He continues to look flat everything he takes the field.
WR Jeremy Kerley (12 rec, 114 yards, 0 TDs) leads an unimpressive receiving corps that includes Torrey Smith who led the 49ers with 3 receptions for 35 yards last week. That should tell everything.
San Francisco averages 116.7 rushing yards per game (11th). RB Carlos Hyde (58 att, 225 yards, 4 TDs) nearly equaled his output from the first two weeks in week 3, racking up 103 yards on 21 carries including a pair of touchdowns on the ground.
San Francisco has the 30th-ranked total defense in the NFL. They allow 255.0 passing yards per game (14th) and 122.7 rushing yards (23rd). They have recorded five sacks in three weeks (17th).
