The Dallas Cowboys will host the San Francisco 49ers in an NFC Wildcard Round game Sunday at AT&T Stadium. Dallas opened as a 3-point favorite, and the line has remained there across the sports-betting landscape.

DraftKings was dealing the Cowboys -3 (-115) and PointsBet had Dallas -3 (-105) as of Thursday afternoon.

San Francisco 49ers (10-7, 9-8 ATS) at Dallas Cowboys (12-5, 13-4 ATS)

Time: 4:30 p.m. EST

Line: Cowboys -3 (51)

The skinny: This will be the eighth playoff meeting between these teams, tied for second most all-time, with the Cowboys having won five and the 49ers three.

Facts: Of the six wild-card games this weekend, this is the only one in which the teams didn’t meet previously this season.

Both teams are coming off uplifting victories in the season’s final week, more so for San Francisco, which rallied from a 17-0 hole to win at L.A. against the Rams, 27-24 in OT. San Fran earned the NFC’s No. 6 seed. It was the second biggest comeback victory for a team this season, and San Francisco’s only recovery from a double-digit deficit.

For Dallas, Dak Prescott puffed his stats with five TD passes in a 51-26 win at Philadelphia, but the Eagles’ lineup consisted of virtually all backup players. The Cowboys, though, also were missing key components who are to return this week: RB Tony Pollard (foot), OLT Tyron Smith and all-purpose defensive phenom Micah Parsons (COVID), as well as cornerback Trevon Diggs (non-COVID illness).

For the 49ers, standout OLT Trent Williams is dealing with an elbow injury that kept him out of last week’s crucial showdown with L.A. He has been reported as saying he vows to play and may even resort to wearing a harness.

Analysis: The Cowboys are said to be as healthy as they’ve been all season and upbeat after moving up to the No. 3 seed in the NFC playoff bracket last week.

Yet even though Dallas finished the season going 5-1, all five victories came against QBs who were on the bench to start the season. The lone loss was to Arizona and star QB Kyler Murray. And before that winning stretch, Las Vegas’ Derek Carr led the Raiders to a 36-33 road win.

The 49ers, meanwhile, who have one of the most physical offensive lines in the league, have been able to rely on the run game while QB Jimmy Garoppolo and rookie backup Trey Lance have sparked the passing game. Either QB will do here.
