When Dak Prescott was at the helm in 2020, the Cowboys offense was scoring at a good clip, averaging over 32 points per game in the contests Prescott started. Vegas oddsmakers believe that with No. 4 back under center, the Dallas offense will pick up right where it left off during those five weeks.
The Westgate Las Vegas lines are in for the 272 games that make up the 2021 regular season, and the Cowboys-Chiefs showdown in Week 11 boasts an over/under of 55 points, the highest single game of the entire league slate.
As per Mike Florio at ProFootballTalk, the Chiefs have the most games with over/under numbers currently at 50 points or more, in 14 of their 17 matchups. The Buccaneers have 12 such games, and the Cowboys have seven.
Whether this signals high confidence in Prescott’s return to form in Dallas’s high-potential offense or skepticism that the team’s defensive woes have been adequately addressed… or is simply a byproduct of a mostly weak schedule remains to be seen.
But there is high-scoring history between the two historic franchises.
The last time the Cowboys and Chiefs met, in 2017, they combined for 45 points (in a 28-17 Dallas victory). They combined for 59 points in their 2005 meeting, a 31-28 Cowboys win. And remarkably, in a three-game series from 1975 to 1989, they combined for 65, 62, and 64 points.
For now, oddsmakers say bettors can also bank on a ton of points when Prescott and Patrick Mahomes renew the rivalry at Arrowhead Stadium the Sunday before Thanksgiving 2021.
