Bettors love the Kansas City Chiefs this week, and patrons of one sportsbook love the Dallas Cowboys — curiously enough — far more than patrons of other sportsbooks.

The Chiefs as -6.5-point favorites over the Washington Football Team have a ridiculous 97% of the handle at FanDuel. That means just 3% of bettors there have WFT +6.5.

Kansas Chief vs. Washington has been the most tease-able line on the docket, next to the Bucs -6.5, which — if teased — hit on Thursday.

If you had teased the Chiefs and Bucs at six points, you'd essentially have the Chiefs at -110 odds on the moneyline for Sunday's tilt against a disappointing Washington team.

Conversely, the Chiefs moneyline is currently going for -275 in the open market.

The Kansas City moneyline also has a ridiculous handle. It has 98% of the total money at FanDuel. Only 2% of the money has been placed on the Washington Football Team despite its +240 line.

This implies that the market has been placing that -275 Chiefs line in plenty of parlays.

Meanwhile, the Cowboys are an incredibly popular pick on the road against the New England Patriots at BetMGM.

Dallas is the most-wagered-on team to win at FanDuel on account of its No. 2 ranking in Football Outsiders' Defensive DVOA, along with its various offensive weapons.

Weirdly enough, the same is not the case at FanDuel. While BetMGM reports that a crazy 96% of the money is on the Cowboys moneyline at -185, FanDuel said only 51% of the money is on Dallas' moneyline against New England.

Even more curiously, Dallas has better odds at FanDuel at -172.

Roughly 63% of the handle at FanDuel is on the Cowboys to cover by three points. Meanwhile, at BetMGM, about 81% of the money is on the same line.
