NFL Predictions 2014 Week 1: 49ers Vs. Cowboys

San Francisco 49ers Vs. Dallas Cowboys: SF -3 (-120) (5Dimes)

Market Watch

This line was -3.5 back in May, got as high as -5 this week, but has been bet down to -3 at some places. If you have -3.5, you should have the option to buy down at an affordable price.

Bottom Line

A lot of people are down on the 49ers this year due to their losses on defense, but there should be an uptick on the offensive side. Kaepernick remains the big question mark since he has to prove he's improved with his progressions. Yet, even with these issues SF should have enough to beat the Cowboys by 3.

Dallas had a horrific defense last year, yet did nothing to address it in the offseason. In fact, they lost their best players on that side of the ball, so they are in for a long, long season. They might be able to put up points, but I don't think they can compensate enough against a top NFC team.

NFL Pick: SF -3.
