The Dallas Cowboys vs. Kansas City Chiefs matchup in Week 11 is one of the more exciting games on the slate. Making any sort of prediction is tough because both of these teams have been somewhat inconsistent this season. However, both are coming off dominant offensive performances. Let’s take a look at the current NFL odds, make a prediction for the outcome, and look at what channel/station you can watch/listen to this Cowboys vs. Chiefs showdown.
Dallas Cowboys vs. Kansas City Chiefs prediction and odds | Week 11
- Spread: Chiefs -2.5 (Odds from DraftKings sportsbook)
- Moneyline: Chiefs -140, Cowboys +120
- Over/Under: 55.5
Will both offenses show up this time around?
The Cowboys vs. Chiefs have the highest total on the board for Week 11 and by a significant margin. The second-highest total belongs to Arizona and Seattle at 50, nearly a touchdown lower than this game.
Why is this total so high? Well, recency bias is one of the reasons. Both of these squads just put up more than 40 points in their last game.
Nonetheless, there is more to it than just last week. The Chiefs and Cowboys are both in the top five in yards per game, with Dallas leading the NFL at 433.9. They are also both top-10 units when it comes to points scored per game, with the Cowboys again leading the NFL at 31.6 and the Chiefs coming in at 26.2.
In addition to their dynamic offenses, both teams have defenses that have been somewhat inconsistent this season. They both rank in the bottom half of the league when it comes to yards allowed per game. However, where these two defenses differ is in turnovers. The Cowboys are second in the league with 14 takeaways behind only the Buffalo Bills (15). Meanwhile, the Chiefs have 8.
Cowboys vs. Chiefs prediction
Making a Cowboys vs. Chiefs prediction is tough. Will we get the Cowboys who struggled to put up points against a mediocre Denver defense? Will we get a Chiefs offense that was able to put up only 3 and 13 points in two of their last four?
This matchup is being played in Kansas City, and the Chiefs are famous for having one of the best home-field advantages in the NFL. However, the Cowboys are 4-0 against the spread in their last four road games and 8-1 ATS in their last nine overall. They have been covering on the road this year. And with the spread being less than a field goal, my lean would be on Dallas to get the straight-up win.
Patrick Mahomes has made significantly more mistakes this season and has already thrown 10 interceptions. That is more than the past two years combined.
The Cowboys’ defense is not the defense you want to make mistakes against. I can see Trevon Diggs getting his ninth interception in this game and sealing a close victory for America’s Team.
Cowboys vs. Chiefs Prediction: Cowboys 31, Chiefs 28
