San Francisco 49ers vs. Dallas Cowboys Player Prop Picks: Expect an Interception from Jimmy Garoppolo

The NFL Playoffs are just a few short days away. That means everyone is looking for the best betting angle they can find in order to kick off the postseason with a few winners. Luckily for us, handicapper Josh Gayle is here and has found a prop pick he loves in the San Francisco 49ers vs. Dallas Cowboys game.

Jimmy Garappolo to throw an INT @ -125 (Bet $125 to win $100)

*Odds available at Caesars at time of publishing* Jimmy G has had a surprisingly nice year. He has thrown for 254 yards per game and has 20 touchdowns through the air. With that being, said he has still thrown for 12 INTs and has thrown at least 1 in 8 of his last 13 games. But, that wouldn’t normally push me over the edge to make this a must bet. You know what does? The matchup.

The Dallas Cowboys are one of the most analyzed and criticized teams in the history of professional sports. We can say a lot of things about them, but we can’t say that they’re bad at forcing turnovers. In fact, the Dallas Cowboys lead the NFL in interceptions with an insane 26. I’ve been on record of saying Trevon Diggs is overrated, but there’s no denying that he’s good at ball-hawking when he’s not getting burnt on the play. 

Dallas is entering this game as a 3-point favorite. This is so huge for our bet because Jimmy G has thrown an interception in every loss this year and the last two games of last year. When San Francisco trails and are forced to throw, they always seem to have one ball sail on them. Obviously, the Cowboys winning isn’t the only path to this bet cashing but if that’s the game script that plays out, it would make me even that much more confident while watching.

Garappolo is dealing with a right thumb injury (his throwing hand) and has been limited in workouts. This could play into our favor come Sunday when he’s feeling uncomfortable in the pocket trying to make plays. It's rare you’ll get -125 for a player to throw an INT against the top defense at getting pickoffs. It's even more rare for it to be a player who is banged up and usually still throws an interception when healthy. This is a no-brainer bet. If it doesn’t hit I can go to bed knowing we were 1000% on the right side of the logic here.

Lastly, as I’ve been doing with every article as of late, I will address the projected weather. It projects to be in the high 40’s with minimal wind and no chance of precipitation. This plays into our hands as neither team will be deterred from passing the ball. Plus, if San Fran falls behind they will be left with no choice but to air it out against the secondary who seems to have a knack for forcing turnovers. I expect these odds to move north of -150, so I would get on this right away if I were you.
