How many games will the Chiefs win PYMWYMI

Arrowhead's a nasty place to play.. I like KC's chances... but anything can happen.

With Dez and Romo banged up... a pretty poor Dallas OL against a good front 7... physical KC corners vs their receivers... Dallas should have real issues with crowd noise. I have a good feeling. The big concerns would be DeMarcus Ware vs Albert or Fisher... some inside blitzes from Bruce Carter. The KC OL needs to keep Alex cozy early on. I think the Chiefs can use some quick PA to affect their coverage, and finally take a few deep shots. KC should be able to run well enough to keep things remotely balanced.

KC - 30 / DAL - 23

This one should cover one of their "upset" wins to get over the 9 difficult teams they play. Get to 8!!

It surprises me that the line is 2.5 points. Most people I talk to really believe Dallas will win.

i think the home team gets 3 pts and the uncertainty of Romo/Dez is a factor..The line might change tomorrow ?

Yes home team does get 3 points. That would suggest that Vegas thinks the team are equal. Especially for a starting line. It would change as people bet. You're right, it could change.
This should be a good game. Wouldn't surprise me if Dallas blows out KC, although unlikely.

It would be an interesting Super Bowl, but I would expect the 49ers DL to dominate the Chief's OL. They won't be able to run, and short passes won't be enough to keep the chains moving without a running game.

Which is why the spread is so low. The 2.5 is an indication a lot of people think DAL will win and will still pick them due to the small spread. This tells us more that KC winning would be an upset.
^ the line is based on bookmakers' efforts to equalize each side. Dallas has a lot of fans, so more people tend to favor them, thus skewing the numbers.

Happens with the Niners and Raiders in Vegas, too: proximity and popularity impact the local line.
Dallas' defense was able to be more aggressive against the Giants because NY has a suspect and weak running game. Jamal Charles for the Chiefs will force the Dallas D play more discipline if the Chiefs can establish Charles early. Not sure how Dallas will do against the run because they haven't been tested yet like the caliber of Charles.

Chiefs have a good chance if their defense can withstand the Dallas hurry up, no huddle offense that they have used on occasion. Romo in the 4th qtr is capable of awesome come back ability or total collapse. Time consuming drives with Charles in the 4th is the best remedy for the Chiefs.

Thats if Charles is fully healthy...he might aggravate his injury from the Jags game

On a real note, Niners would slaughter them.

as I understand point spreads the 2.5 would not suggest that vegas thinks the teams are equal but rather is the number they think will draw bets on a relatively equal basis i.e 1/2 for dallas, 1/2 for kc
