Kansas City Chiefs Dallas Cowboys Bets

Kansas City Analysis

The Chiefs are coming off their bye week, but they still have the lead in the AFC West, and the second best record in the conference.

Their offense, led by Alex Smith, who is having an MVP level season, is still one of the best in the NFL. Rookie running back Kareem Hunt is second in the league with 717 rushing yards, while Tyreke Hill is 11th with 515 receiving yards.

Defensively, the Chiefs have to improve if they want to be seen as a real contender this season. Their defense has given up 20 points or more in four games this season, and have to do a better job of keeping opponents out of the red zone.

Dallas Cowboys Analysis

The Cowboys could be without Ezekiel Elliott, who is third in the league in rushing this season, due to a six game suspension that has been tied up in the courts. A Judge is expected to rule on the case this week, so Dallas will know where they stand before Sunday’s game.

If the Cowboys don’t have Elliott for this game, former Washington Redskins running back Alfred Morris is expected to get the majority of the carries, with Darren McFadden also getting some playing time.

The Cowboys defense has been playing well in the last two weeks, and the team will need them to be even better if they have to play the next six games without the 2016 season’s rushing leader.

Dak Prescott will also have to step up to make up for Elliott’s absence. With the Philadelphia Eagles sitting pretty on top of the division, the Cowboys are hoping they can get one of the Wildcard playoff spots this year.

Pick and NFL Week 9 Prediction

The Cowboys are favored to win this game by 1.5 points. The over/under on total points scored is 49. The Cowboys haven’t been very good at home this season, so I’m picking the Chiefs to cover in this one. Take Kansas City +1.5.
