Dallas at San Francisco
Sunday 09/25 04:05 PM Eastern
1 unit on San Francisco +6.5 (-110) (risk 1 to return 1.91) RESULT: WIN
Sensing a theme here? San Francisco loses by 39 points last week. Time to fade them here, right? Just the opposite. They are getting nearly a touchdown at home against a team that took a HUGE emotional hit last week. The Cowboys are coming off a short week of practice and they gave away a game they never should have in front of a national TV audience by giving up two touchdowns in the final 3:46. Teams typically don't recover well from losses like that. Bill Parcells as much as predicted it this week when he said, "Losses like this can carry over if you let them." I don't expect a focused Dallas team here, especially against San Francisco. Again, people seem to forget that San Francisco beat St. Louis just two weeks ago. They had an off game against a focused and pissed-off Eagles team. They aren't as bad as they showed last week and should keep this one close. One star on the Niners.
