NFL Odds: Prop Bets for Chiefs vs. Vikings game Week 5
When Ezekiel Elliot left the Cowboys this offseason, Tony Pollard immediately became the RB1 for Dallas. He was on the field for 53 percent of the Cowboys’ offensive snaps in 2023. Pollard split time with Elliot and still managed to rush for over 1,000 yards. This season, the 26-year-old is already at 311 rushing yards through four games. He’s on pace for nearly 1,300 rushing yards if he plays all 17 games this season.
Heading into Sunday’s matchup, Pollard’s O/U for rushing attempts is at (15.5). He’s passed that number in two of his four games played this season. In weeks 2 and 3, Pollard has 23+ rushing attempts in each game. In his other two games, he’s averaged only (12.5) carries. Dallas is going to have to establish the run first if they want the passing game to open up. They can start doing that by getting Pollard going early.
This season, Christian McCaffrey has undoubtedly been the best RB in the NFL. Through four games, he leads the league in rushing attempts (80), rushing yards (459), rushing yards per game (114.8), and rushing touchdowns (6). He’s absolutely dominated every defense that he’s played this season. McCaffrey also has 18 receptions for 141 yards and one receiving touchdown.
For Sunday’s matchup, McCaffrey’s O/U for rushing yards is set at (75.5). The All-Pro has smashed that number in every game he’s played this season. His lowest total rushing yards in a game this season was week 3 when he had 85 yards vs. the Giants. His highest total this season was in Week 1 with 152 yards. McCaffrey is averaging (114.8) rushing yards per game in the 2023 season.
So far this season, the Dallas Cowboys haven’t had their first true test of the season. That will change this Sunday night when they face the 49ers. San Francisco is 4-0 this season and has looked dominant on both sides of the ball. For the Cowboys to win in Week 5, Dak Prescott is going to need to have his best game of the season. The 49ers are not a team that you can make a lot of mistakes against and expect to win.
Dak Prescott’s O/U for passing yards on Sunday is at (241.5). This season, the Pro Bowl QB is averaging (227.0) passing yards per game. Against the 49ers, it might be difficult for the Cowboys to get a consistent flow on offense. If that happens, they may have to rely more on the run game to get easy yards.
