Expert Pick #1 – Dallas Cowboys +2.5 @-105
Both teams go to this match after strong performances in the previous round, and it can easily go either way. However, Dallas had a bit more time for rest and preparation, and I believe they can cover the spread in this clash. Therefore, I’ll take the Cowboys ATS as the first pick.
Expert Pick #2 – Over 55.5 @-110
Kansas City has been excellent in the offense last time, with Mahomes in the top form. Dallas also scored 40+ points last weekend, and I expect to see a high-scoring match again. Although the margin is pretty high, I believe we should see more than 55 points in this encounter, and I’ll take it as my second bet.
Expert Pick #3 – Cowboys +6.5 & Over 45.5 @-105
I’m going with a combo of the spread and totals markets for the third pick, as it can also provide pretty decent odds. I think the Cowboys won’t lose by more than six points, while the game should go over a 45.5 margin. This tip could almost double our stake.
