According to covers.com, an informational non-gambling Internet site, New England opened as a 4-point favorite over the Cowboys in next week's game in Dallas between the two undefeated teams. Over the last few hours, several online Web sites have moved the spread to 4 1/2. We'll see how this goes through the week. I had predicted a 6-point spread by game time. There's no way it moves that much, but we could see it inch a bit higher, although 5 obviously would be an odd number. The over-under is a lofty 52, 52 1/2.
