Dallas Cowboys vs. Kansas City Chiefs Odds
Dallas Cowboys vs. Kansas City Chiefs odds opened at Cowboys as a big -9 road favorite. This line has moved down to -7 ½ at Bookmaker.com. Amazingly, about 70 percent of the spread action was on the Chiefs in this game.
These two teams played against one another twice during this decade and both games were close affairs with Dallas winning by 3 and 4 points, respectively.
On paper, it looks as if the Cowboys can manhandle Kansas City, especially after a loss.
But Dallas quarterback Tony Romo has come under fire in recent weeks and has completed only 57.6 percent of his passes with one touchdown and four interceptions in his past three games. The critics figure to grown even louder if Romo struggles against the Chiefs' 28th-ranked pass defense.
As for Chiefs quarterback Matt Casell, though the Chiefs quarterback has thrown four touchdowns in the past two weeks, he has struggled to get the ball downfield. He is averaging an anemic 4.5 yards per pass attempt over the last two games and Kansas City is just 2-for-26 on third down. Those stats must improve if the Chiefs are to spring the upset against the Cowboys.
BetED.com had the Chiefs at +9 so there is certainly a middling opportunity (bet both sides) with this game in hopes that Dallas wins by 8.
