Pick via FOX Sports' Colin Cowherd

"I like San Francisco plus the points. They are a very physical team. Jimmy Garoppolo as a starter is what, 32-14? They're healthy again and Deebo Samuel is a major matchup issue for everybody. 

"Dallas was 6-0 against the NFC East, but 6-5 against everyone else. A lot of their wins this season were against average quarterbacks and average teams."

PICK: 49ers (+3 at FOX Bet) to lose by fewer than 3 points (or win outright)
