Chiefs vs Vikings Early Odds & Predictions
The Chiefs are six-point favorites on the opening line as they travel to face the Vikings at 4:25 p.m. Sunday at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.
The Vikings (1-3) got their first win of the season Sunday, beating the Carolina Panthers 21-13 as Kirk Cousins threw two touchdown passes to Justin Jefferson and D.J. Wonnum returned an interception for a score. The Chiefs (2-1) had won back-to-back games going into Sunday night’s game against the Jets in New York.

The high/over suggests this game will be a shootout. It’s hard to bet against Patrick Mahomes in that situation.
Pick: Chiefs -6 (-110)
Cowboys vs 49ers Early Odds & Predictions
A pair of Super Bowl contenders meet when the 49ers host the Cowboys at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif. The 49ers are 3.5-point favorites.
The 49ers (4-0) stayed unbeaten Sunday with a 35-16 victory over the Arizona Cardinals as Christian McCaffrey scored a career-high four touchdowns. DaRon Bland had an interception return for a touchdown and Leighton Vander Esch ran back a fumble for a TD as the Cowboys (3-1) bounced back from their first loss of the season with a 38-3 thumping of the New England Patriots.

This is a marquee matchup between two of the most talented defenses in the league. Taking the points feels like the way to go.
Pick: Cowboys +3.5 (-120)
Movement on the Line
The Denver Broncos (1-3) are three-point home favorites over the Jets (1-2). While both teams have been disappointing, the line seems to be tilted a little heavily to the Broncos’ side. It might be wise to jump on the Jets – even with Zach Wilson at quarterback — before the line shifts.
Pick: Jets +3 (-105)
