Betting on Dallas Cowboys (0-0)
There’s trouble brewing in Cowboys nation, Whether they admit it or not, the continuing holdout by running back Ezekiel Elliot is something that’s becoming a distraction for them. That being said, they can’t let that to be the case, as they make their final preparations for the 2019 season. Part of that is finalizing their contingency plan for the possible absence of Elliott at the start of the season. Against San Francisco, the Cowboys will take note of what Darius Jackson, Tony Pollard, and Mike Weber will do in the backfield. The Cowboys signed old friend Alfred Morris in the offseason to provide depth and experience under center, though, the veteran is unlikely to play this coming Saturday.

The under is 3-0 in Dallas’ last three preseason games.

The Niners got tripped up early in the 2018 season, as they saw quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo suffer a devastating ACL injury before going on a 17-week stumble that ended in them missing the playoffs despite all the preseason hype. The good news for San Francisco is that they were able to get Nick Bosa No.2 overall in this year’s NFL Draft. The 49ers are expecting big things from the former Ohio State Buckeyes defensive end. Apart from Bosa, San Francisco will be rolling out a pair of wide receiver rookies in Samuel Deebo and Halen Hurd, who were drafted in the second and third round, respectively. Last season, with Garoppolo out in most weeks, the 49ers ranked 15th in passing offense with 241.7 passing yards per game and 21st in total offense with an average of 21.4 points per contest.
The over is 6-4 in San Francisco’s last 10 preseason games.
The 49ers win, 28-24.
