After sneaking into the playoffs, the 49ers present a tough matchup for any opponent. For Sunday’s Wild Card Game in Dallas, the point spread has remained Cowboys -3 during early betting, with some sportsbooks tacking additional juice on the favorite. While the 49ers can be had for +140 on the moneyline, and the total is between 50.5 and 51, we check out player props and touchdown scorer bets, as we have throughout the season with great success.
Deebo Samuel, who could have a huge game this weekend, is on our radar. More on that later!
Between the player props and anytime touchdown scorer props, we are fully covered for this weekend’s heavily anticipated NFC matchup.
Lastly, follow the advice of Furio from The Sopranos …. “Bet with your head, not over it”
49ers vs. Cowboys Player Prop Bets: Deebo Everywhere!
Deebo Samuel Over 28.5 Rushing Yards -115 | Over 4.5 Receptions (+105) | Over 63.5 Receiving Yards -115 (BetMGM)
Deebo Samuel is the best offensive player on either team and likely the third runner-up for Offensive Player of the Year. Samuel has at least five carries in his last eight games and has surpassed this rushing number in seven of his last eight. This is one of the better bets of the weekend.
His receiving props are a bit tougher to reach, but he’s so dynamic, he can easily burn Trevon Diggs (league worst in receiving yards allowed by a corner) for a long TD. We’ll talk about Samuel’s touchdown prowess later, but his production could be massive Sunday.
Jimmy Garoppolo Over 2.5 Rushing Yards +100 (DraftKings)
Once having taken this team to a Super Bowl, Garoppolo rarely runs the football for San Fran. While there are not many designed quarterback runs in the 49ers offense, we have seen QBs run more often than expected in the playoffs. At even-money, ‘over’ 2.5 rushing yards for Jimmy G is a fine bet this weekend. One short scramble for a first down wins this wager. He’s surpassed this number in three of his last four games and is worth the bet at +100 or better.
Elijah Mitchell Under 19.5 Rush Attempts -114 (FanDuel)
A huge workload is projected here for Elijah Mitchell. We saw JaMycal Hasty eat into Mitchell’s workload last week, and as we said before, Deebo Samuel is good for about five or more carries per week. Take the ‘under’ here, as Mitchell will have a tough time topping 19 carries against a powerful Cowboys defense.
49ers vs. Cowboys Anytime Touchdown Scorer Props
Deebo Samuel Anytime TD Scorer +108 | 2+ Touchdowns +750 (BetRivers)
A shoutout to BetRivers, who consistently gives us solid odds on anytime touchdown scorer props. Other sportsbooks have this at yes -140/no +350, so we are getting phenomenal value here. It does not matter if these touchdowns come by running or receiving, and Samuel is one of the top dual threats in the league. He is easily one of the best bets of the weekend for TDs and player props.
Amari Cooper Anytime TD Scorer +150 (PointsBet)
I am starting to lose faith in Ceedee Lamb, who has been significantly less involved in the offense of late. Prior to Week 18, Cooper expressed he was not being targeted enough in the offense. The results of those complaints were clear: Cooper was heavily involved and Lamb was not. Cooper is trusted by Dak Prescott, and Lamb has been nowhere to be found.
