Minty Bets, Jared Quay & Matt Gothard give their picks for the Monday doubleheader featuring Chiefs vs. Bills & Cardinals vs. Cowboys.
MINTY BETS: We've got a doubleheader this Monday to end week six. Let's start with the Kansas City Chiefs at the Buffalo Bills. The Chiefs are laying 4 points on the road, and the total is set at 57 and 1/2 points. Matt, let's start with you. Who do you like in this game?
MATT GOTHARD: I'm all over the Chiefs. I know that a lot of people are gonna say that that's the square play, but there's no way that I could only take 4 points with the Bills right now. Their defense hasn't looked as good as they have in the past. And I think that the Chiefs are gonna be taking this game very seriously after laying an egg at home against the Raiders, so I'm all over the Chiefs in this one.
MINTY BETS: OK. Jared, what about you?
JARED QUAY: I'm gonna preface this and say a healthy Bills team is one of the best in the NFL. But since they're not healthy, I'm gonna go with the Chiefs here too. They're getting a shorter week because they played Tuesday Night Football, on top of fact they're missing both of their starting corners. And if there is one quarterback you don't want to play when you're missing your starting corners, it's Pat Mahomes.
Even though they're on the road, I think the Chiefs come out there and score a lot of points like they normally do. And it's gonna be on Josh Allen to try to keep up. And I just don't think he does.
MINTY BETS: Yeah, you hit the nail on the head. It is a sweep. I'm also on the Chiefs minus 4 here. I think the line's gonna be moving pretty quickly.
The Bills are missing some key players, and we know the Chiefs are explosive offensively and have some work to do defensively. But I think they can pull one out here on the road. Chiefs minus 4 for me.
And let's move on to the Monday night game as the Dallas Cowboys host the Arizona Cardinals. The Arizona Cardinals are 2 and 1/2 point favorites here, and the total is set at 54 and 1/2. I think I'll go first with this one. I am calling an upset here. I think the Cowboys not only cover, but they win against the Arizona Cardinals. And here's why.
The Cardinals, I love that short line, but they haven't won against good teams. They won against the Jets, the Washington Football Team, and the Niners. So I think the Cowboys-- although they lost Dak and Andy Dalton hasn't put up impressive numbers, I think he's got some great offensive weapons here. So give me the Cowboys to not only cover but win as well. Jared, what do you think?
JARED QUAY: I've been on the Cowboys all year, and I can tell you right now they're 0 and 5 against the spread. I will not be losing any more money on the Cowboys. I think their defense is just one of the team's-- they let the Giants look like they were the Chiefs, and I didn't like that. And so I'm not gonna bet them.
I don't want to bet this game at all. But if I had to bet, I'm gonna take Kyler Murray to score a couple of touchdowns and Andy Dalton to play well but not good enough to beat them. I like it minus 3. And if you're gonna take the Cowboys, you might as well take money line because it's really hard to lose by just 2 points.
MINTY BETS: OK. Matt, what do you think?
MATT GOTHARD: 2020 continues to get more bizarre. Jared Quay is finally betting against the Cowboys. I never thought I'd live to see the day.
I don't really have a play on this game, so I'm gonna pull out the exotic 6-point teaser, take the under up to 60 and 1/2, and take the Cowboys up to 8 and 1/2. I think it's gonna be a low-scoring, very close game. Both these offenses might struggle, especially the Cowboys. But I think it will be close, especially a Monday night primetime game. Give me this weird teaser.
JARED QUAY: Man, it's only so many times you get your heart ripped out betting the Cowboys that you go, you know what, I'm done. And you listen to Mary J. Blige as you walk away.
MATT GOTHARD: I'm proud of you, Jared.
