49ers vs. Cowboys Week 15 Prediction
The Cowboys still have an outside shot at the playoffs but desperately need a win on Sunday versus the visiting 49ers at 1:00 p.m. ET. Is Dallas the play as a 3-point home dog or will San Francisco cover as a road favorite?

1:00 p.m. ET, Sunday, December 20, 2020
Venue: AT&T Stadium, Arlington, TX
San Francisco 49ers DFS Spin
Nick Mullens completed 25-of-45 passes for 260 yards, a touchdown, and an interception in the 49ers' 23-15 Week 14 loss to the Football Team. Mullens yardage looks fine, but it was his crushing fumble for a touchdown and interception for a score that decided the game. Mullens missed wide open pass catchers throughout the first half, including Jordan Reed and Brandon Aiyuk. Inaccurate and unsure of himself, Mullens has struggled in a miserable season for the injury-ravaged Niners. Mullens should be a superflex option next week against an exploitable Dallas secondary.
Dallas Cowboys DFS Spin
Andy Dalton completed 16-of-23 passes for 185 yards and two touchdowns in the Cowboys' 30-7, Week 14 win over the Bengals. This was Dalton's return to Cincinnati after spending the first nine years of his career there as the Bengals' starter. The Dallas defense stole the show early in this one, forcing a trio of fumbles on the Bengals' opening three possessions, returning one of them for a touchdown. The Cowboys were able to cakewalk their way through the rest of the afternoon, as Dalton tossed red-zone touchdowns to Amari Cooper (11 yards) and Tony Pollard (seven yards). It was just Dalton's second win in six starts under center for Dallas. He'll be a bottom-barrel QB3 next week against San Francisco.
