Chiefs & Cowboys Prep for Fierce Football Betting Battle
Posted by: Anthony Yaylor
Week 9 of the 2017 online football betting season is next and it’s looking like one of the best weekend’s of the year. We have matchups pitting the Denver Broncos, who are desperately looking for a change of pace considering they just swapped out starting quarterbacks, taking on the winningest team in the NFL in Philadelphia, the Atlanta Falcons taking on the Panthers in a fierce divisional battle, and even an NFC North battle between the Lions and the Packers this Monday night. But even amongst this star studded lineup, the best sportsbook players on the planet will want to pay special heed to this Sunday’s contest between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Dallas Cowboys, which promises to be one of the best matchups of Week 9. Let’s take a look at what kind of turnout NFL bookies are predicting.

Kansas City Chiefs
The Chiefs march into this weekend’s contest sporting a 6-2 record that ranks them as the top dog in the AFC West. Kansas City got off to a great start to the 2017 season by upsetting the defending Super Bowl champions in their 2017 debut before mounting a 5 game win streak. After that impressive streak, the Chiefs suffered a brief setback, suffering back to back losses to the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Oakland Raiders. The Chiefs were able to rebound from that online football betting hiccup this past weekend when they picked up a much needed divisional win over the Denver Broncos 29-19. However, sports wagering sites still aren’t certain about the Chiefs’ chances this Sunday, considering that the money line still isn’t out and the spread is current set at Pick ‘em. Nonetheless, bookmakers are pretty sure that this will be one high scoring game.
The Cowboys ride into this Sunday’s game with a 4-3 record that ranks them 2nd in the NFC East behind the 7-1 Philadelphia Eagles. Dallas hasn’t played half their season but they’ve already accrued as many losses as last year’s squad. On top of that, America’s Team had the biggest loss of the season handed to them earlier this week when a judge reinstated the league’s 6 game suspension of Ezekiel Elliott. The Cowboys’ offense had already been struggling this season and considering how integral their running game is to their offense, bettors can expect Dallas to suffer a dip in offensive production. Furthermore, Dak Prescott isn’t the kind of quarterback who can throw for 40-50 times and win you a football game. Instead, from what we’ve seen out of Prescott, he’s much more of a game-manager than a game-winner. He’s calm, cool, and collected in the pocket, as long as the Cowboys have the lead.
