This is an absolute classic NFC matchup and maybe the best uniform matchup that you can get in the NFL. The Dallas Cowboys and the San Francisco 49ers meeting in the playoffs is classic, it feels like a throwback, but it happened just last season.
The 49ers took out Mike McCarthy’s Cowboys 23-17 on a questionable QB draw by Dak Prescott that ticked the final seconds off the clock.
Now we’re in San Fran with a few fresh faces particularly on the Niners sideline for this one, and we might just be backing Brock Purdy and Christian McCaffrey for a same game parlay. Before we get into that, let’s get into the odds for Cowboys vs. Niners this weekend.
Earlier this week, I took San Fran to win and cover, but now I’m ready to really win big. I’ve used FanDuel Sportsbook’s same game parlay odds to construct this four-leg SGP that pays out +534. That means a $25 bet pays out $133.61.
Best same game parlay picks for Cowboys vs. 49ers
- 49ers moneyline (-200)
- Ezekiel Elliot under 35.5 Rushing Yards (-114)
- Christian McCaffrey 50+ Rushing Yards (-280)
- Deebo Samuel 60+ Receiving Yards (+110)
49ers moneyline (-200)
The Cowboys maybe looked the best of any team in the wild card round and you should always be wary of trusting that team to be great again next week.
Dallas got to play by far the worst team in the playoffs. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were absolutely awful and Dak Prescott diced them up.
Well, congratulations now you get to face the No. 1 defense in football. Brock Purdy got his jitters out in the first half against Seattle, but you know how’s going to have more jitters than anyone this weekend, Brett Maher who apparently has the yips, but is still going to be kicking for Dallas.
I’m sure that won’t cost them their season at all.
Ezekiel Elliot under 35.5 Rushing Yards (-114)
Elliot has become purely a short yardage back with little to no burst. There is always fear that Tony Pollard will break a long run, even against San Fran’s No. 2 run defense, but Elliot doesn’t have that ability anymore.
He got 13 carries last week and finished with 27 yards, I can’t imagine him getting more touches after that performance.
Christian McCaffrey 50+ Rushing Yards (-280)
On the other hand, McCaffrey is getting more touches. The Niners wanted to preserve his health throughout the season, and even last week he had 15 carries and two catches. He was excellent with those touches, but I expect him to get even more against Dallas. If he gets 20 carries, he’ll easily end with over 100 yards, so betting 50+ feels like a layup.
Deebo Samuel 60+ Receiving Yards (+110)
Kyle Shanahan has built this offense around playmakers and his plan is working perfectly so far.
Brock Purdy has been excellent and at this point I think I could win 10 games as the 49ers quarterback. Samuel was the focal point of the passing attack last week with six catches for 133 yards and a touchdown.
Getting 60+ at plus odds juices this SGP, and doesn’t scare me at all.
