Dak Prescott Wild Card Props 2022 | Prop Bets For Cowboys vs 49ers

The NFL playoffs are the most wonderful time of the year for sports gamblers.

But there’s more to betting the postseason than just moneyline and against-the-spread picks. It’s also the time to cash in on player props, since so many of the NFL’s best players will be showcasing their stuff for the world to see.

Today we’ll examine Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott, who will make his first playoff start in more than three years when Dallas hosts the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.

Dak Prescott Wild Card Prop Bets

Dak Prescott Under 275.5 Passing Yards (-113) at BetRivers

Wager: 2 Units

The Dallas offense loves to throw the ball. Prescott attempted 30+ passes in 12 of the 16 games he played during the regular season.

The problem is that volume doesn’t necessarily lead to huge yardage, as Dak topped 300 yards just five times this season and only twice in the Cowboys’ past 10 games.

Prescott did surpass 276 passing yards in two of Dallas’ last three games, but those performances came against the Philadelphia Eagles’ second-team defense and the porous Washington Football Team.

The 49ers pass defense is stout. San Francisco allowed the sixth-fewest yards through the air in the NFL during the regular season and tied for fifth in the league in sacks (48) — meaning they’ll likely force Prescott into hurried throws and checkdowns.

Plus, Prescott will be without No. 3 receiver Michael Gallup, who tore his ACL during Dallas’ loss to the Arizona Cardinals in Week 17.

Dak is always capable of going off, but we won’t see it on Sunday.

Dak Prescott Over 1.5 Passing Touchdowns (-195) at BetRivers

Wager: 1 Unit

Dak may not throw for over 275 yards, but he should be able to get the Cowboys into the end zone at least twice through the air.

The Cowboys had just 15 rushing touchdowns this season and Prescott threw for 37 scores, an average of more than two per game.

Dak Prescott Over 0.5 Interceptions (+135) at BetRivers

Wager: 0.5 Units

The 49ers don’t typically pick off passes — they had just nine interceptions during the regular season, tied for fifth-fewest in the NFL — and Prescott generally takes good care of the ball, throwing just 10 interceptions this season.

However, San Francisco has improved with takeaways as the season has gone along.

The 49ers picked off Matthew Stafford twice in their win-or-go-home Week 18 victory over the Los Angeles Rams and have five interceptions in their past seven games.

Plus if Prescott and the Cowboys get behind, he’ll have to make some desperation throws — like Stafford had to in overtime — and San Francisco should be able to cash in.

Over 38.5 Pass Attempts (+120) at BetRivers

Wager: 0.5 Units

As I mentioned above, the Cowboys throw the ball a lot.

Plus, with running back Tony Pollard banged up and the 49ers run defense likely neutralizing Ezekiel Elliott, the game will probably come down to whether Prescott can make enough plays in the passing game.

Prescott has surpassed 38 attempts in seven of his past 11 games, though only one of the past four.

Still, the odds are good value given the fact he should be around 40 pass attempts on Sunday.

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.
