SAN FRANCISCO – NFL sportsbooks are leaning towards the 49ers as a 3.5-point favorite in Sunday night’s matchup against the Cowboys.
The total in the 49ers last four games has gone over. They have scored 37 or more in each of those games.
The 49ers (-185) have been impossible to contain since Brock Purdy took over. They have scored four or more touchdowns in five of six games that Brock Purdy has started.
The Cowboys rank fourth in the NFL this season in points scored, averaging 27.5 points per game. Dak Prescott just torched a Tampa Bay defense that ranks ninth in the NFL in passing defense for 297 yards and four touchdowns.
These dominant offenses give appeal to the over which is set at 46.0 on NFL gambling sites.
Two of the League’s Best Defenses
In addition to their explosive offenses, these two teams each boast top 5 defenses.
The Niners defense leads the league in points scored with 16.3 and the Cowboys are the fifth best with 20.1. The Cowboys defense leads the league in takeaways with 33, five more than the second-place 49ers unit.
Luckily for those taking the over (46.0) at gambling sites, these teams have been giving up more points as of recently.
In their last five games, the Niners defense is averaging 20.6 ppg. Although this is still an incredible number, it’s 4.1 more points than their season average.
The Cowboys have given up an average of 25.4 ppg across their last five games. That’s 5.1 more than their season average.
Despite their top-notch rush defense, the Niners rank 20 in the NFL in opponent passing yards per game at 223.3. This features an average of 262.3 in their last 3 games.
The projected point total is set at 46.0 which might be too low despite the remarkable defenses. San Francisco has crushed this number over their last four games. Kickoff is set for 6:30 p.m. EST on Sunday night.
