cowboys vs. 49ers props

With the NFL player prop market gaining more popularity, especially during the playoffs, let’s dive into three potential 49ers vs. Cowboys props that jive with NFL Divisional playoff odds, ahead of Sunday’s 6:30 p.m. kickoff in the Bay Area.

Each of these props are ones I’ve personally bet earlier this week. Some lines may have shifted slightly, but the best available odds are provided, showing the best price across sportsbooks in your state.

Tony Pollard UNDER 48.5 Rushing Yards

Best available odds: Over/Under /

Pollard ran extremely pure last week vs the Buccaneers totaling 77 rushing yards. This week he gets a different matchup against a 49ers defense that allowed the fewest rushing yards to opposing running backs in the regular season. I expect the Cowboys to be playing from behind in this spot, hurting Pollard’s chances of rushing success. Let’s not forget that the Cowboys still have Ezekiel Elliot heavily involved. Pollard did not surpass this rushing yard total in three of his last four games of the regular season.

Christian McCaffrey OVER 64.5 Rushing Yards

Best available odds: Over/Under /

Averaging 93 rushing yards over his last six games, the 49ers star running back will crush this over bet. The Cowboys are not a threatening matchup for McCaffrey, as PFF ranked Dallas as the No. 21 run defense during the regular season. The spread for this game is between three and four points setting up a favorable script for the 49ers to do what they do best in running the football.

Brandon Aiyuk Anytime TD Scorer

Best available odds:

This is more of a long-shot bet, but at +230 odds, it’s too sweet to pass up. Aiyuk led the 49ers wideouts with eight receiving TDs during the regular season. Now he faces a Cowboys secondary that allowed the most touchdowns to opposing wideouts this year. We know the 49ers will put up multiple touchdowns in this game, and I will take my chances with Aiyuk to be the one crossing the goal line.

To optimize your chances of long-term profitability, you must seek out the best available odds across sportsbooks for props. We have a way that makes it simple – our Prop Finder Tool. Search the player name and compare odds across sportsbooks in your state.

There’s an edge in betting the Unders on weekly player props close to kickoff. The edge is so great that you would have posted a positive ROI last year if you bet every single Under with no other information. At the same time, that doesn’t mean you should never bet Overs. You must be selective with picking your spots based on new information, and it’s always best to handicap each situation independently.

For some, betting the Under may be challenging to watch a game. No one wants to cheer for a player to fail, but the increased ROI you get from focusing on Unders should outweigh that for those wanting to be profitable long term.

Best of luck betting on 49ers vs. Cowboys props!
