The Cowboys opened as slight (-1) favorites against the Chiefs early this week, but the line has since moved in favor of the Chiefs, who now find themselves as -1 favorites for the game on Sunday.

The Cowboys' line mirrors a trend among oddsmakers for the weekend, as this week they see a strong weekend for the road teams, with 6 of the 13 Week 9 games showing the road teams as favorites.

But all of that ranks a distant second to the key question Cowboys fans are asking themselves this week: Will the Cowboys beat the Chiefs?

"Of course they will," say eight out of ten BTB writers, and without further ado, here are our picks for Week 9, 2017.
