Dallas Cowboys vs. San Francisco 49ers Underdog fantasy player over/under picks
Dallas Cowboys vs. San Francisco 49ers will wrap up the NFL’s divisional playoff round on Sunday evening in Santa Clara.
The 49ers got to this round by beating Seattle in the wildcard round. Dallas took care of business against Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last week.
The game is set to kick off at 6:30 p.m. Eastern time and can be seen on FOX.

My picks for Cowboys vs. 49ers
Let’s start with the 49ers, who many (including me) think will win this game and advance to the NFC Championship Game. That would be an incredible story considering the 49ers are starting Brock Purdy, the 2022 NFL Draft’s “Mr. Irrelevant.” Purdy has yet to lose as a starter and will be favored against the Cowboys.
His over/under is set at 239.5 passing yards. Considering he threw for 330 yards against the Seahawks last week, I think that total is too low. I don’t think he’ll get to 300 passing yards on Sunday against Dallas, but I do like the “higher” option on Purdy’s 239.5 passing yards total.
Why do I like the over there? Well, it has a lot to do with San Francisco TE George Kittle. He wasn’t used much against Seattle, recording only 2 catches on 2 targets. But to end the regular season, he was playing some of his best football of the year.
His over/under is set at 4.0 receptions. In the final 5 games of the regular season, Kittle recorded 22 catches, snagging at least 4 passes in all 5 games. He also had 7 touchdown catches in that time frame. I like the “higher” option on Kittle’s catches against the Cowboys.
Moving on to the Cowboys, let’s discuss QB Dak Prescott. The Dallas QB is coming off of one of his best outings ever, throwing for 305 yards and 4 touchdowns, while rushing for another score, in a win over the Buccaneers.
This week, he goes against an elite San Francisco defense, so I’m not particularly comfortable betting on any of his yardage or TD totals. But I think the Cowboys will be playing from behind for much of the game, which means they’ll have to throw early and often. I like Prescott’s “higher” option for 34.5 pass attempts. I think he’ll approach, if not exceed, 40 passes by the time all is said and done on Sunday evening.
How many picks should you make?
The more picks you string together, the higher the “multiplier” or payout. Of course, the more you string together, the less likely you are to win because all of the picks have to hit in order for you to win.
A 3-way parlay of the picks I listed above would pay out $60 on a $10 bet:
No matter who wins, this should be a great matchup between 2 legendary NFL franchises. Get your bets in before kickoff on Sunday evening!
