The San Francisco 49ers will visit the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday in a critical NFC Wild Card Matchup. 

The 49ers secured their spot in the playoffs with a comeback win over the Rams in their last game as they picked up a 27-24 win in overtime. Jimmy Garraopolo completed 23 of 32 passes for 316 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions against the Rams last week.

This season, Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo completed 68.3% of his passes for 3,810 yards and 20 touchdowns. Running back Elijah Mitchell is probable for Sunday’s game.

The 49ers offense averages 375.7 yards a game which is 7th in the league. They are scoring 25.1 points per game as they give up 310 yards and 21.5 points per game to their opponents. 

The Cowboys are coming off of a 51-26 win over Philadelphia. The Cowboys have won 5 of their last 6 games. Last Week, Dak Prescott was 21 for 27 through the air for 295 yards and 5 touchdowns to zero interceptions. He had a QBR of 98.6.

This season, Dak Prescott has completed 68.8% of his passes for 4,449 yards and 37 touchdowns to 10 interceptions.

The Cowboys offense averages 407 yards a game which is 1st in the league. They are scoring 31.2 points per game as they give up 351 yards and 21.1 points per game to their opponents. 

The Cowboys are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 playoff home games and are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 playoff games. The Cowboys are also 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games in January. The 49ers are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games after accumulating more than 350 total yards in their previous game. The 49ers are 7-0 ATS in their last 7 games in January and are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games as an underdog. I like for the 49ers to keep this close as they can possibly win this outright. Yes, the Cowboys have been impressive this year, but they still are the Cowboys, and can easily let a playoff win slip away. I’ll take the points with the 49ers.
