Cowboys all-time series vs. Chiefs
The Cowboys lead the limited series 7-4. The captain used to be called the Dallas Texans for the first three seasons that existed until 1962. These two teams began competing again in 1970. The Cowboys won the 2017 meeting in Dallas, 28-17 . They won 3/4 and 5/7 in the series to take the lead after the series was still early.
Three trends to know
—68 percent of spread bettors are siding with the Captains to win with a home goal or more even though the Cowboys are a strong NFC contender.
—67 percent of over/under bettors don’t think a big number over 50 is high enough and think the game will exceed that total.
—The Cowboys have an 8-2 lead over spread and a straight 7-3 in the past 10 games with a combined scoreline over half. The captain has only won 3-7 ATS and 6-4 SU in the past 10 games, including knockouts, with a goal-to-half pass total.
Three things to see
Ezekiel Elliott versus the protection of the chiefs
The captain entered Week 11 as the NFL’s 18th defensive line, allowing for an average of 114.6 yards per game. The Cowboys need to try to keep the balance knowing they can get a good complement to Prescott with Elliott and flashy backup Tony Pollard. That will help set up big action plays, keep the chain and clock moving, and limit Mahomes’ possession time in the process.
Travis Kelce vs. the Cowboys ‘passed the coverage
The Cowboys have a good midfield led by rookie Micah Parsons but their ability to cover tightly has been questioned because of weak safety play. Kelce is the most reliable target for Mahomes because his fitness, size, hands and glands allow him to be well planned for most weeks. This feels like a big Kelce game, especially if the Cowboys protect from burns when playing shot with the wide receiver.
Trevon Diggs vs Chiefs . wide receiver
Speaking of wide receiver, the Cowboys will do their best to keep Tyreek Hill from plunging at his studio speed. Diggs is the Cowboys’ best full-back, making steady plays and they can hope he can keep the “Cheetah” under control. Diggs will stalk in hopes of making any of Mahomes’ mistakes, but the Cowboys would be better off if Hill had a dual partnership and Diggs handled the others.
112.2. That’s the passer-by rating allowed by Diggs when quarterbacks target him in range. Although Diggs has eight interceptions, he has also been burned for his share of the big games with him, which should please Mahomes when he reads the pitch and sees Diggs have one or two. knockdown shot.
Cowboys vs. Predictions. Chiefs
Cowboys and Chiefs is destined to play the ultimate and perhaps the best game in an entire series that pales in comparison to the blockbuster 2021 NFL season. Prescott and Mahomes need to avoid mistakes first, but both should fall prey to young shooters. The Chiefs learned to balance and explode at the same time just like the Cowboys tried to do. If his game was in Dallas, it would be easy to side with the Cowboys. Likewise, in noisy Kansas City, go with the home team in one of the most even games of the season.
