Ezekiel Elliott Wild Card Props | Prop Bets For Cowboys vs. 49ers

It’s win-or-go-home season for football teams, which means it’s the most wonderful time of the year for sports bettors.

The NFL playoffs are where the best teams and players come out to shine, and when the action heats up. It’s also when the games are more fun as a bettor.

But there’s more than just moneyline and against-the-spread picks. There are a variety of props for bettors to choose. Today, we’re looking at prop bets involving Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott.


Ezekiel Elliott Wild Card Prop Bets

Best Bet: Under 47.5 rushing yards (-115) at BetRivers

Wager: 1 unit

The Cowboys always talk about establishing the running game with Ezekiel Elliott, but that always seems like just that: talk. Elliott has rushed for fewer than 48 yards in seven of Dallas’ past nine games. He’s coming off an 87-yard performance against the Eagles in Week 18, but that was against Philly’s backups.

In fact, 1A running back Tony Pollard has outgained Zeke in five of Dallas’ past nine games, and the Cowboys have been feckless running the ball in games against playoff teams.

Dallas was 3-4 in the regular season against teams that made the tournament — with two wins over the Eagles and an OT victory over the New England Patriots before they turned the corner — and averaged about 100 rushing yards per game.

The 49ers defense is also stout against the run. They’re giving up the NFL’s seventh-fewest yards per game (103.5) on the ground, and have surrendered an average of 77.6 yards per game while winning four of their past five. That should force Dallas into a pass-heavy game script, which coach Mike McCarthy tends to prefer anyway, and will likely leave Zeke falling short of the Over.

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.
