NFL SNF Dallas Cowboys vs San Francisco 49ers Same Game Parlay: Cowboys can pull the upset at +582 odds
On this week’s edition of Sunday Night Football, the Dallas Cowboys will head out west for a massive game against the San Francisco 49ers. What could be the 2 best teams in the NFC are meeting in the Bay Area, and the hosts are a short favorite in what promises to be an excellent game from start to finish. So, who will come out on top?
I have an idea of how the proceedings might go, and I’ve used it to create my Same Game Parlay for Sunday Night Football at nearly 6/1 odds. Let’s get into it.
Cowboys ML (+158)

Christian McCaffrey to score a touchdown (-114)
Same Game Parlay Odds: +751
Dallas Cowboys ML (+154) over San Francisco 49ers
We’ve got a rematch of the 2023 divisional round playoff game, and it’s an identical spread with identical movement. Kind of freaky. This game opened at San Francisco -3.5, got bet up to -4 and has since been played back mostly to 3.5 — although there are some +4s available at major sportsbooks. It makes sense since the game is again in San Francisco and there’s not much that’s changed about either team. Dallas’ offense is probably a bit more explosive anecdotally now that it has committed full-time to Tony Pollard and Dak Prescott has — as promised — taken much better care of the ball. Neither one of these teams has really played anyone all that good, which is a factor here into the handicap.
If the Cowboys have a relatively clean sheet on the injury report with their offensive line, there should be enough enough here to keep this game within a field goal. They have been able to move the ball every week and their red zone numbers (which are admittedly quite poor) should regress to the mean. It’s also a peak motivation spot, since the Cowboys have been thrown out of the playoffs at the hands of the 49ers 2 years in a row. The 49ers are the class of the NFC and have looked unstoppable, but they can be exploited on the offensive line — and the Cowboys, with Micah Parsons, have the personnel to do it. I’ll take the field goal in a battle of 2 pretty evenly-matched teams in the NFC.
Check out our Dallas Cowboys vs San Francisco 49ers predictions
Over 45 (-110)
Last year’s contest in the playoffs was a slow-paced 19-12 final. However, this is a regular season game that won’t decide much outside of early seeding implications. The 49ers currently rank 3rd in the NFL in scoring offense at 31.3 points per game and the Cowboys are right behind them at 31 points per game. There’s a lot more that goes into it than just what these teams are averaging, but there are just too many playmakers on the field for us not to get to 45 points at least. Prescott has just 1 interception this season and the 49ers have basically gotten whatever they want on offense to this point. Plus, we deserve fireworks after that debacle on Thursday night between the Bears and Commanders.
Christian McCaffrey to score a touchdown (-175)
At this point, what can you can say about Christian McCaffrey that hasn’t already been said? The 49ers are an absolute machine on offense and McCaffrey is at the center of it all. The running back has been dominant to this point in the season, posting a touchdown in every game and racking up 3 touchdowns in his last outing against the Cardinals, part of a performance where he tallied 106 yards on the ground and 7 receptions through the air. Given that McCaffrey has had at least 20 touches in every game this season, I’m expecting a heavy dose of CMC to take the pressure off his young quarterback. Look for McCaffrey to find the end zone at least once on Sunday.
