The San Francisco 49ers and the Dallas Cowboys will meet at the Levi's Stadium to play the NFC Divisional playoff game on Sunday. These teams faced each other last season and the 49ers won and covered the spread as +3.5 points underdogs.


Dallas Cowboys

The Cowboys get here with an 13-5 record and are 5-4 on the road so far this season ranking 2nd in the NFC East. With 219.8 yards per game, their passing offense ranks 14th in the league. Dallas ranks ninth this season in running offense with 135.2 yards per game and  average 27.5 points per game placing them fourth in scoring offense. Dak Prescott has completed 261 of 394 passes for 2,860 yards, 23 touchdowns, and 15 interceptions. In the wild card game against the Bucs, the Cowboys gained 425 yards total, 297 yards through the air and 128 yards on the ground. In a dominant performance, Dak Prescott threw for 305 yards and four touchdowns.

The Cowboys defense has been solid and are allowing 19.5 points per game and 351 yards. This is the 6th least amount of points given up per game and the 6th least amount of yards. Dallas has been great against the pass allowing 224 passing yards but they have struggled against the run allowing 127 yds.


San Francisco 49ers

The 49ers have won 11 games in a row and get here with a 14-4 record and lost only 1 game at home this season ranking 1st in the NFC West. Brock Purdy played the last 6 games of the regular season with outstanding numbers. Since he took over for an injured Jimmy Garoppolo in Week 13, the 49ers have scored at least 33 points in five of their six games. During that time, Purdy has completed 110 of his 161 throw attempts for 1,308 yards and 13 touchdowns. Purdy threw three touchdown passes and ran for a fourth score in his playoff debut, leading the 49ers to a 41-23 victory over the Seattle Seahawks in a wild-card game on Saturday.

The Defense has been pretty tough allowing only 16 points per game, 222 pass yards and 72 rushing yards. San Francisco linebacker Dre Greenlaw is garnering attention for routinely making big plays. After recording 15 tackles and an interception last week against Tampa Bay



Dallas are 7-2 SU in their last 9 games.

Dallas are 6-2 SU in their last 8 games against San Francisco.

The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Dallas' last 5 games on the road.

Dallas are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games when playing on the road against San Francisco.

San Francisco are 8-1 ATS in their last 9 games.

The total has gone OVER in 6 of San Francisco's last 7 games.

San Francisco are 10-0 SU in their last 10 games.

The total has gone OVER in 8 of San Francisco's last 11 games against Dallas.



San Francisco is still the hottest club in the NFL. They have defeated opponents by double digits in 5 of their last 6 contests, including last week's 41-23 victory over the Seahawks. The Cowboys were surprising in the wild card game against the Bucs after and awful performance in the last game of the regular season against the Commanders. This is going to be a great defensive battle so expect a close game. The 49ers have been so dominant at home where they have an 8-2 ATS record so I'm going with the 49ers.

PICK: 49ers -4 (-110)
