NFL Betting – Dallas Cowboys at San Francisco 49ers Preseason Week 1

Written by:

More than anything the San Francisco 49ers are hoping for better health this season. Last year took a detour in camp when Jerrick McKinnon sustained a knee injury. Jimmy Garoppolo was done not even three games into 2018 and the team floundered. Both players are expected to give the offense a boost this year, but we won’t see them on Saturday when the Niners host the Dallas Cowboys in the preseason opener for both clubs.

Odds Analysis

Could all the distractions surrounding the Cowboys be a reason for the line spike in this game? The Niners hit the board as a 3-point favorite and that number is currently at 4.5-points. Player holdouts, more suspensions and the constant talk of Jason Garrett’s future have overshadowed everything. They just wouldn’t be the Cowboys without turmoil.


Don’t tell Tony Pollard the preseason is meaningless. With Ezekiel Elliott holding out for a new deal, the Boys have turned to fourth-round pick Pollard as the guy in the backfield. He was selected with the idea of giving the team a more explosive option behind Zeke. Now, Pollard has taken over as the possible starter if Elliott remains absent when the regular season starts.

Pollard has impressed the right people. “One of the most exciting player to me of this training camp,” Dak Prescott said. Dak will likely get a series with a majority of the first-teamers and he’ll get a first-hand view of what Pollard can do in a live action scenario. Those are always much different for a rookie, but Pollard doesn’t look like an average first-year player.

Dallas needs to find a capable backup quarterback just in case. You could say the Boys were lucky last season with Prescott starting all 16 games while being the only QB to throw a pass. Cooper Rush has been around for a few years and Mike White is back for another go and they’ll get their chances on Saturday. Rush had a nice outing last year against the Niners throwing for 145 yards and a touchdown on 15 of 23 passing.


The Niners are not going to take any unnecessary risks with their regulars. Garoppolo was cleared from his knee injury prior to camp, but he won’t play. A number of other players will sit, including top pick Nick Bosa, who sustained a “significant” ankle injury in practice. The team shelled out a bunch of dough to McKinnon last offseason and has yet to get anything in return. McKinnon had a setback in his recovery and will not play, putting him further behind a now solid group of running backs.

Matt Breida took advantage of the opportunity to lead the team in rushing and Tevin Coleman is an explosive back who has a history with his new coach. Look for the Niners to run the ball more than they probably would in a real game setting as they try to work out a pecking order.

The biggest advantage for the Niners is under center. With C.J. Beathard and Nick Mullens splitting reps, they essentially have two players who started a number of games last year. Granted they weren’t that good, but they have the experience of competing in regular season games, and that goes a long way. The two inspired the Niners to a comeback preseason win against the Boys last season combining for 322 yards on 21 of 33 passing. They should have success against Dallas’ backup defenders.

Dallas is waiting until the regular season for a number of defensive regulars to join the mix so there could be some anxious moments in the exhibition opener. Garrett is more concerned with plugging some holes right now and he’s not concerned with the outcome. The Boys were winless last preseason, proving that the exhibition games don’t mean a thing. They went on to win 10 games and the NFC East title. Kyle Shanahan and GM John Lynch will be getting some heat if they don’t win, and that includes preseason games. With an overall deeper roster, San Francisco’s backups are better and they should prevail.

NFL Score Prediction: 49ers 26, Cowboys 18
