Dak Prescott OVER 15.5 rushing yards
There are a few reasons I like this prop. For one, the 49ers have a fierce pass rush, so I think Dak will be flushed from the pocket a few times in this game; however, he has already been running more on his own. In his last six games, he’s averaging 22.5 rushing yards, and the Cowboys have called a few designed runs for him in each contest. Plus, the 49ers’ defense allowed 28 rushing yards to Geno Smith last week and 34 rushing yards to Jarrett Stidham in Week 17, so I think Prescott will get there.

Ezekiel Elliott UNDER 10.5 longest rush
I’ve been getting into this longest rush and longest reception props of late because I think there are some decent odds to be played. For me, this bet is betting on the San Francisco run defense and against Zeke’s explosiveness. The 49ers have the best run defense in the league, and it’s pretty clear that Zeke is just a short-yardage type of back now who lacks the same agility and lateral quickness. As a result, I can’t see him breaking a big run in this game.

Brandon Aiyuk OVER 55.5 receiving yards
With Deebo Samuel returning from injury, we’re getting a nice line here for Brandon Aiyuk. Since Deebo has come back, Aiyuk has at least 59 yards in each game, and he has been a weapon for Brock Purdy since the rookie took over. George Kittle is the trendier name and has been finding the end zone more, but Aiyuk is the most targeted receiver. Against a Dallas defense that takes a lot of chances and can be susceptible to the big play, I like Aiyuk to go over this number.

CeeDee Lamb anytime touchdown
We’ve been talking a lot about San Francisco’s defense being elite, and it is, but they’ve also dealt with injuries in their secondary all season and just allowed 136 yards and two touchdowns to DK Metcalf last week. Lamb has emerged as a bona fide stud this season with 10 touchdowns. I think Dallas will be trailing in this game, and Lamb will be used heavily to get them back into it.
