49ers vs Cowboys Odds - Cowboys to light up scoreboard

Posted by Stan Simmons on 4/18/2012 11:10:20 AM
NFL linesThe 49ers vs Cowboys odds are a throwback matchup to the days when these teams dominated the NFC. Unfortunately these days, only one of the two teams holds up their end of the bargain. With the 49ers struggling at quarterback, online betting cappers should expect the Cowboys to control this game.

49ers vs Cowboys odds: Cowboys -7

  • WHAT: NFL betting
  • WHEN: Saturday, August 29th – 8:00 PM ET
  • WHERE: Cowboy Stadium – Dallas, TX
  • PICK: Cowboys -7

49ers vs Cowboys odds maker breakdown: Offense

The 49ers offense is in quite the rut right now. Not only is first-round pick Michael Crabtree still holding out, but the 49ers’ quarterback situation is still a mess. Starter Shaun Hill has a bad back while former first overall pick Alex Smith has been horrible. Aside from Frank Gore in the backfield, the 49ers don’t have any reliable weapons to match points with the Cowboys.

NFL betting fans know the Cowboys should be one of the highest-scoring offenses in the NFL and they’ve flashed their potential in the preseason. The good news about the Cowboys – especially for preseason betting – is that they have ample depth at quarterback with Jon Kitna and plenty of depth at running back.

49ers vs Cowboys odds maker breakdown: Defense

The 49ers defense doesn’t have the type of talent the Cowboys have, but it does bring a lot of effort. Playing for Mike Singletary, the 49ers defense won’t be slacking. The problem for the 49ers these days is that they are several bricks short of a load defensively. Their defensive line is weak and they lack talent at virtually every level of their defense.

Meanwhile, the Cowboys are loaded. They have several defenders with Pro Bowl potential and players like DeMarcus Ware should have a field day against the crummy 49ers offensive line. At home in their new stadium, expect this defense to put on a show.

49ers vs Cowboys odds maker breakdown: Special Teams

The special teams matchup is about even, as both teams have good kicking games and weak return units. It will be interesting to see if either punter hits the hanging scoreboard, which has surfaced as an issue in the Cowboys’ new stadium.

Betting Edge: Even

49ers vs Cowboys odds maker breakdown: Notable Injuries

The Cowboys are fully healthy but the 49ers have a few nagging injuries. Both quarterback Shaun Hill and linebacker Patrick Willis should play this week, although both have been limited in practice over the last week.

49ers vs Cowboys betting breakdown: Outlook and Pick

The sportsbook has the Cowboys as a big favorite in this contest, and that’s because they should be able to move the ball at will against the 49ers. Playing in their new stadium in their third preseason game, the Cowboys will want to put on a show.
