49ers vs Cowboys NFL Playoff Prop Bets | Props For Total TDs, Cowboys Total & More

The Wild Card round is set to begin in the NFL this weekend, with plenty of intriguing matchups taking place. After an exciting double-header on Saturday, the San Francisco 49ers will travel to take on the Dallas Cowboys as one of the three games being played on Sunday.

The 49ers come into this game having won eight of their last 11 games to sneak in as the No. 6 seed in the NFC. Meanwhile, the Cowboys won five of their last six games to conclude the year as the No. 3 seed in the NFC.

It should be a hard-fought game between San Francisco and Dallas on Sunday, with Vegas expecting it to be a close contest. Ahead of Sunday’s matchup between the 49ers and the Cowboys, keep reading below to get my favorite game props to bet in the game.

Please note that all NFL gameday odds and lines are current as of 11 AM EST on Thursday, January 13.

49ers vs Cowboys Prop Bets: NFL Playoff Prop Betting Picks

Team Total Points: Cowboys OVER 27.5 Points (+100) at Twinspires

Wager: 1 Unit

There were times during the regular season that the offense of the Cowboys looked out of sorts. Even two weeks ago in their game against the Arizona Cardinals, Dallas was inconsistent on the offensive side of the ball.

That being said, the Cowboys have scored 51 or more points in two out of their last three games. And while Dallas boasts the highest-scoring offense in the NFL at 31.2 points per game, they’re even more dangerous at home, which is where Sunday’s game will be taking place.

Throughout the regular season, the Cowboys averaged a whopping 36.4 points per game at home. Dallas scored 28+ in six of their eight home matchups, and their team total is set at 27.5 points right now on TwinSpires.

Dak Prescott and the offense of the Cowboys should be able to move the ball fairly easily through the air against a defense of the 49ers that owns the No. 16 ranked pass DVOA defense, compared to the second-ranked run DVOA defense.

I’m confident that Dallas can get four touchdowns, or three touchdowns with a few field goals, to get us over 27.5 points for the home team.

Total Touchdowns: OVER 5.5 (-148) at Twinspires

Wager: 1 Unit

It’s already known that I see the Cowboys being able to score three or more touchdowns by themselves. And while I see Dallas winning the game, San Francisco can score a few touchdowns as well.

The Cowboys have an offense that is loaded with talented players like CeeDee Lamb, Amari Cooper, Ezekiel Elliott, Tony Pollard, and Dalton Schultz. Even with Michael Gallup sidelined, Cedrick Wilson has done a remarkable job filling as the No. 3 wide receiver this season.

On the other side of the field, the 49ers have versatile weapons in Deebo Samuel and George Kittle. Brandon Aiyuk and Elijah Mitchell should also be heavily involved in Sunday’s contest if San Francisco hopes to keep the game close with Dallas.

All we need is for both teams to score six touchdowns total to achieve the over. With the Cowboys and the 49ers scoring a combined 56.3 points per game during the regular season, six touchdowns are certainly obtainable on Sunday for our NFL bet of the day.

First Scoring Play: Cowboys TD (+148) at TwinSpires

Wager: 0.5 Units

For the final game prop, let’s take a chance on something with plus-odds. The first scoring play is always a way to have fun when watching the game as you anxiously wait to see which team scores first and whether it’s a touchdown or a field goal.

In the 17 games they played in during the regular season, the Cowboys scored first in nine of them. Also, in five of those nine games where Dallas was the first team to score, they scored a touchdown to begin the game.

As for the 49ers, they scored first in only seven of their 17 games this season. So, with that in mind, we’re going with the Cowboys to put points on the scoreboard first and in the form of a touchdown.

Dallas is going to want to set the tone early and jump out to an early lead over San Francisco. Whether it’s on the first drive or one of their first drives of the game, I’ll be placing half a unit on the Cowboys to find the end zone first to get the scoring started.

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.
