San Francisco 49ers vs Dallas Cowboys – game predictions

The 49ers are hosting the Cowboys as a -3.5 point favorites at the Levi’s Stadium. Check out our daily NFL player props page.

Prediction 1: Over 45 points @ -110 (1.90)

The last two season, the Niners cut the Cowboys Playoff dreams short reviving their rivalries from the 1990s when these two met three times in the Playoffs and the winner went on to win the Super Bowl. Both teams have not won the ultimate prize ever since and looking at the start of this season, they both seem ready to end the drought. Both teams are among the top three teams in the league in points allowed, and in top four in points scored, averaging around 31 per game. The total given margin is set at 45 and with all that hype and intensity that this game will bring, these two will combine for way more than that.

Prediction 2: Brock Purdy over 245.5 passing yards @ -110 (1.90)

The Niners QB has an impressive start of the season. Purdy leads the league with 115.1 rating and averages 254.8 passing yards per game. He has won the last 9 games as a starter and the last 12 when he played at least three quarters. Purdy has no turnover this season and will be ready for the task that comes with the Cowboys visit. The passing yards line is set on 245.5 for him which is something he will surpass in a hyped up contest like this.

49ers vs Cowboys preview – Emotional night for the Cowboys running back

In last year’s clash at the Levi’s Stadium, Tony Pollard broke his leg. He was a replacement for Ezekiel Elliott in that game and now he is the main RB for Dallas after they released Elliott. Pollard had at least 70 rushing yards in three of his four appearances this season and hopes for another big night against the Niners.
