Cardinals vs Cowboys Week 17 Prop Bets | Kyler Murray, Dak Prescott, & More

This weekend’s matchup features two NFC heavyweights moving in different directions.

The Arizona Cardinals (10-5) are backsliding into the playoffs on a current three-game losing streak after having led the conference for much of the year, while the Dallas Cowboys (11-4) are red-hot having won their last four games.

Kyler Murray hasn’t looked the same since losing DeAndre Hopkins for the rest of the regular season, and the Cardinals may also be without James Conner for this matchup.

On the other side of the field, Dak Prescott seems to have overcome his recent struggles, and the Cowboys defense is also firing on all cylinders.

Let’s dig in to find the best Cowboys vs Cardinals prop bets for this weekend’s NFC heavyweight battle.

Please note that all NFL gameday odds and lines are current as of 12:00 p.m. ET on Friday, December 31.

Cowboys vs Cardinals Prop Bets: NFL Week 17 Prop Betting Picks

Dak Prescott: Over 276.5 Total Passing Yards (-115) at Caesars

Wager: 1 Unit

It took him a few weeks, but Dak Prescott has finally gotten his groove back. Coming off a 330-yard performance (most of it in the first half) against Washington, Prescott will get a chance to take on a tough Cardinals secondary this weekend.

Though the matchup isn’t ideal, the Cardinals can be thrown upon. And Prescott has the weapons and recent form to take advantage of an Arizona squad that hasn’t been playing its best as of late.

Kyler Murray: Over 31.5 Total Rushing Yards (-120) at Caesars

Wager: 1 Unit

Kyler Murray has been struggling without DeAndre Hopkins and has had to take things into his own hands as of late. Murray has rushed for over 50 yards in three of his last four games since returning from injury and will likely need to use his legs again this week with James Conner‘s status up-in-the-air.

Christian Kirk: Over 55.5 Total Receiving Yards (-115) at Caesars

Wager: 1 Unit

Christian Kirk has been the main beneficiary of Hopkins’ absence and has seen an uptick in his targets over his last three games. He’s seen an average of nine targets in those three games and has turned those targets into an average of 76 receiving yards per game during that span.

The Cowboys pass defense is opportunistic, but they’re also in the bottom 10 in the NFL in terms of receiving yards allowed per game to opposing receivers. Kirk should be able to take advantage of his matchup this week.

Ezekiel Elliott: Under 73.5 Total Rushing + Receiving Yards (-110) at Caesars

Wager: 1 Unit

Ezekiel Elliott is still a solid player, but he’s not quite the weapon he used to be — especially with Tony Pollard getting more of an opportunity in the Cowboys offense.

Elliott hasn’t hit this total since Week 9 and has only carried the ball more than 15 times once since Week 9. While this total isn’t exorbitantly high, Elliott just isn’t seeing enough touches for us to feel good about the over here.

NFL Betting News

  • Early money slightly leaning towards the over in the 49ers-Rams matchup

    DraftKings Sportsbook is reporting good two-way action on the over/under for the NFC Championship Game matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and Los Angeles Rams.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, the over of 46 points has attracted 55% of the bets and 60% of the money thus far. Much moreso than the AFC Championship Game, the betting splits on the point spread and total in this game are much more evenly split, so the sportsbook does not have too much liability on either at the moment. From a moneyline perspective, Los Angeles's -170 moneyline odds have attracted 60% of the bets and 70% of the money.

  • Early bettors give slight lean to the Rams over the 49ers

    Based on the betting splits at DraftKings Sportsbook, the favored Los Angeles Rams are getting slightly more betting attention in their matchup with the San Francisco 49ers.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, Los Angeles's -3.5 point spread has received 65% of the bets and 61% of the handle thus far. Bettors are clearly torn in this matchup considering the Rams have arguably been playing better football through the first two playoff games, while the 49ers have won six consecutive games against the Rams, including a thrilling Week 18 overtime victory in Los Angeles.

  • Early money more than 4/1 on the over in the Bengals-Chiefs matchup

    DraftKings Sportsbook is reporting one-sided betting action for Sunday's over/under in the matchup between the Cincinnati Bengals and Kansas City Chiefs.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, the over of 54.5 points has attracted 75% of the bets and 85% of the money thus far. At this point, the sportsbook has big liability to the Chiefs point spread and the over in this matchup, as their most ideal scenario would be a Bengals cover in a low-scoring game at the moment. From a moneyline perspective, Kansas City's -335 moneyline odds have attracted 58% of the bets and 61% of the money.

    CIN vs. KC Game Page

  • Early money 3/1 on the Chiefs over the Bengals

    DraftKings Sportsbook is reporting one-sided betting action for Sunday's matchup between the Cincinnati Bengals and Kansas City Chiefs, as the majority of the action is backing the favored Chiefs.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, Kansas City's -7 point spread has received 61% of the bets and 76% of the handle thus far. Cincinnati is shaping up to be the biggest need of any side or any total this weekend, as the public seems to be enamored with the Chiefs after their thrilling Divisional Round win over Buffalo.

  • 49ers-Rams over/under reaches lowest number of the week

    After another line movement, the over/under for the NFC Championship matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and Los Angeles Rams has reached its lowest total of the week.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, the 49ers-Rams over/under on Sunday night was posted at 47.5 points. It was quickly bet down to 46.5 in less than 24 hours. However, it has once again moved toward the under, and now currently sits at 46 points. Given that there has not yet been buyback on the over, it is extremely unlikely we see the total get back to anywhere close to the 47.5 points it opened at.
