Sunday Night Football is going to be an absolute doozy this week. There has been a lot of hype heading into this matchup between the Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco 49ers, and we’re as excited as anyone.
This is said to be a litmus test for the Cowboys, an opportunity for them to show that they can hang with a team of the 49ers’ caliber. The 49ers have one of the NFL’s top defenses, primed to match up with even the strongest offense.
Dak Prescott and the team will have their work cut out for them in this one. Currently, the 49ers are 3.5-point favorites, but many analysts believe this could be a blowout in favor of the 49ers.
Ahead of this matchup, we have studied the board, identifying the best player props on Underdog. Let’s take a look at our favorite picks!
After a slow start to the year with a 143-yard performance against the New York Giants, Dak Prescott has looked like a man on a mission.
He has put up at least 249 passing yards in each of his last three games, one reason we are taking his over. Prescott has needed to put the Cowboys' offense on his back as of late, and we’re predicting the same against the 49ers.
Despite the 49ers having a strong defense, they have allowed opposing quarterbacks to put up some big numbers. If the Cowboys fall behind quickly in this contest, Prescott will need to dial in his passing game and try to will his team to victory.
Despite us being confident in Prescott’s abilities to throw for significant yardage, the 49ers defense is particularly good in the red zone.
The Cowboys might have success in getting down the field, but they could get stopped short of the goal line.
This will likely lead to Brandon Aubrey getting plenty of opportunities to kick field goals, resulting in more than six kicking points.
Christian McCaffrey isn’t just an elite player for the 49ers. He has found himself in the MVP conversation due to his efforts on the ground and through the air and should be a major factor in this SNF matchup.
He has been targeted significantly by Brock Purdy in the past two games due to his ability to make plays with the ball in his hands.
We believe he’ll have success against the Cowboys, resulting in at least four catches in this one.
