the iceman's free pick
Dallas vs. San Francisco,

Score: 9 - 17
Point Spread: -3½/-127 San Francisco
This is a Free NFLX play on San Francisco.
I almost always pass on Week 1 of the pre-season, because of all the uncertainty about who's going to play and for how long. I almost made an exception here with San Francisco over Dallas. The 49ers come into the 2019 NFL season expected to be one of the most improved teams in the league. They remained quite competitive last season even after losing Jimmy G. Both Nick Mullens and CJ Beatherd proved to be NFL caliber quarterbacks, and we should expect to see plenty of snaps for each of them this pre-season as they battle for the backup role. The Cowboys are dealing with the drama of an Ezekiel Elliott holdout, and Jason Garrett has never taken the pre-season too seriously. The Cowgirls are 12-21 in the pre-season under Garrett.
