Cowboys vs. 49ers Pick

NFL Week 7 Predictions: Dallas Cowboys vs. San Francisco 49ers 10/22/17

Can the Dallas Cowboys cover a touchdown spread on the road when they take on the San Francisco 49ers today at 4:05PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, 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 48.5 points. Dallas has won four of the last five in this series, but both are 2-2-2 against the spread in their last six encounters. The public betting in this one has Dallas getting 66 percent of the wagers. Sunday’s games takes place from Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California.

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 2-3 against the spread, covering in their two wins. 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 a Dallas 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.

San Francisco fell to 0-6 last week with a 26-24 loss at Washington. The 49ers are 4-2 against the spread this season and 1-1 ATS 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.

Bet on Cowboys vs. 49ers

On paper this seems like an easy call for the Cowboys to cover, but the 49ers have been a competitive team this year and Dallas has been very inconsistent. Still, the talent is on the side of Dallas and San Francisco is giving a new quarterback his first start. That usually leads to some turnovers and offensive struggles. The 49ers are just 2-7 ATS in their last nine at home. I am going to give the Cowboys the edge to cover.
