Football Betting: DALLAS COWBOYS at SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS (8/23)

PRO FOOTBALL — August 23

DALLAS at SAN FRANCISCO
(America’s Bookie Line: Niners -4, Total 39.5) — Don’t be surprised if Tony Romo plays in this one, but if he does, it will be only briefly. And even though the Cowboys are going to break out their top three running backs for this one (Joseph Randle, Darren McFadden, Lance Dunbar), they are very thin at the wide receiver position and also along the offensive line, where they have been hit with some injuries. Not that the Niners are super-charged on offense, where they must make do this season without Frank Gore or Michael Crabtree, but they probably have more competition going on with their defensive unit, which has to replace a number of people who have left. And they might be able to make the unusual field conditions work for them a little better than they did lats year.
