NFL odds and lines 2013: Cowboys vs. Chiefs

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

The Chiefs have emerged as slight favorites over the Cowboys in what is expected to be one of the closest games of the weekend according to oddsmakers.

Both the Dallas Cowboys and the Kansas City Chiefs scored strong wins in Week 1 that should leave both fan bases cautiously optimistic that their respective teams can return to the playoffs. The Cowboys earned a key win in their division race over the New York Giants, and the Chiefs spanked what appears to be a hapless Jacksonville Jaguars squad. On Sunday, the teams will face off in Kansas City in what could be one of the most hotly contested matchups of the weekend.

According to Odds Shark, the Chiefs are currently favored by 2½ to 3 points over the Cowboys after the game opened as a pick 'em on sports books. For the weekend, Detroit at Arizona is the only game with a tighter spread. The over/under for the game is currently 46½, making the projected score roughly 24-21 or 25-22, assuming a 3-point spread.

Both teams are 1-0 against the spread this season. The Cowboys easily hit the over during their 36-31 win over the Giants. The Chiefs hit the under during their 28-2 win, though the Jaguars are largely to blame considering their offensive woes.
