Dallas Cowboys vs. San Francisco 49ers Betting Preview
Dallas has a few things they need to worry about in the next four preseason games. The first and most obvious thing is to find a replacement for RB Ezekiel Elliott.
It doesn’t look like Zeke is going to show up anytime soon. It doesn’t seem like the owner Jerry Jones is willing to make him the highest-paid running back in the league, either.
The bad news for the Dallas fans is the issue between the two looks likes is going to get dragged into the regular season. Either way, between tailbacks Jordan Chunn, Alfred Morris, Darius Jackson, Tony Pollard, and Mike Webber there is an even battle entering this game.
Any of those names who want to take the lead on the job needs to start by putting on a show against the Niners. Second, without Zeke in the lineup, this is Dak Prescott’s team, and that adds a little pressure to the QB.
Dak needs to show during the one offensive drive he plays against San Francisco that the fans can rest easy. They need to know they have a capable quarterback. It’s essential for him to send the right message.
Head coach Jason Garrett is 12-21 on his career during the preseason. Last year his team won zero games, but this time the scenario is a little different. The Cowboys locker-room is shaky and might need a win to help with the confidence.
How Will the San Francisco 49ers Handle the NFL Preseason?
The Niners are in a very different situation than Dallas. There are no camp holdouts or issues. Everybody is where it needs to be. In fact, San Francisco is one of those teams with huge expectations to improve in 2019 due to the incredible talent they have.
Here’s the thing, injuries in 2018 slammed the 49ers, and they might want to avoid having to go through that again. The loss of QB Jimmy Garoppolo early last season changed the complexity of their year.
I don’t expect to see Garoppolo out there on Saturday, and if he does, it will be only for a series. San Francisco already received terrible news during training camp.
Rookie sensation DE Nick Bosa suffered an ankle injury in practice. Bosa won’t play during the entire preseason, nor he should. The 49ers are in a paranoia mode, and I expect to see very little or nothing at all from their best players.
What’s the Pick for Cowboys vs. 49ers preseason week one matchup?
Preseason it’s always an opportunity to go with the underdog blindly. Don’t be fooled by those telling they know what is going to happen, because it’s almost impossible to know. But grabbing the points will always be a great strategy, especially with a large spread like this one. Bet Cowboys +4.5.
