Cowboys vs. 49ers Total Pick

Total too high for Cowboys vs. 49ers? NFL Week 7 Predictions 10/20/17

Can the Dallas Cowboys go on the road and have another strong offensive showing when they take on the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday at 4:05PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at, Dallas is favored on the road in this game, as the Cowboys are getting odds of -6 points against the 49ers. The over/under total has been set at 47 points. Dallas has won four of the last five in this series and these two have hit the under in their last two meetings. The public betting in this one has Dallas getting 70 percent of the wagers. Sunday’s games takes place from Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California.

San Francisco fell to 0-6 last week with a 26-24 loss at Washington. The 49ers are 3-3 with the over/under total on the season and 1-1 at home. San Francisco has struggled on defense, allowing 24.3 points and 389.8 yards per contest. The 49ers are giving up 277 passing yards per game. On offense, San Fran is posting just 18.8 points and 343.2 yards per game. The team has made a change at QB. C.J. Beathard will make his first start, replacing Brian Hoyer. Hoyer had 1,245 yards with four TDs and four INTs this year. Beathard has thrown for 245 yards with one touchdown and one INT in limited action. Carlos Hyde is the leading rusher with 360 yards and four touchdowns while Pierre Garcon has 434 receiving yards on 33 catches.

Dallas is coming off a 35-31 loss at home to Green Bay two weeks ago to fall to 2-3 on the season. The Cowboys are 3-2 with the over, hitting it in all three losses this year. The Cowboys got some good news this week as Ezekiel Elliott will be allowed to play for the time being despite his suspension being cleared by the courts. A block has been placed on the suspension temporarily. Elliott is part of an offense that is averaging 25 points and 362.4 yards per game this season. He has 393 rushing yards and two touchdowns this year. Dak Prescott has thrown for 1,192 yards and 11 touchdowns to go with four interceptions. Defensively, Dallas is allowing 26.4 points and 368.4 yards per game. DeMarcus Lawrence is leading the defense with 24 tackles and 8.5 sacks.

Bet on Cowboys vs. 49ers

These two tend to play high-scoring games, but I like the under for this one. The Cowboys have hit the under in their two wins because their defense tends to step up. I think Dallas will have a good defensive performance against Beathard, who is making his first start. San Francisco has hit the under in 18 of its last 25 home games as well while Dallas has hit the under in 12 of its last 15 on the road.
