Betting on the Kansas City Chiefs (-14.0)
Regular Season Record: 10-3
Why the Chiefs are the favorite in this matchup is a reason that is as clear as day. The Chiefs are a legitimate Super Bowl contender. Houston, on the other hand, is a team that is losing its race against time this season to win its second game. Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs are coming off a 34-28 road win against the Denver Broncos last Sunday. Mahomes was not exactly at his best in that game, as he was intercepted three times. But he still managed to finish with 352 passing yards and three touchdowns on 28/42 completions. With Mahomes manufacturing touchdowns and yards, the Chiefs are second in the league with 29.5 points per game and No. 1 with 423.8 total yards per outing. The Texans simply don’t have the weapons to keep up with Kansas City.
The Chiefs are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games in Houston.
Betting on the Houston Texans (+14.0)
Regular Season Record: 1-11-1
The Texans have a palindromic record as they continue to seek their second win of the season. They nearly had it when they came close to upsetting the Dallas Cowboys on the road in Week 14’s 27-23 defeat. Houston made the Cowboys work, so maybe that’s a moral victory enough to boost the optimism of the Texans heading into a tough matchup versus the Chiefs. Given the way the Chiefs allowed all those points to Denver in Week 14, the Texans can also look forward to capitalizing on the seemingly problematic Kansas City stop unit. The Broncos have arguably the worst offense in the NFL but put up nearly 30 points against the Chiefs. Houston will hope that rookie running back Dameon Pierce will ultimately be ready for the Chiefs game after suffering an ankle injury in Week 14.
The Under is 4-1 in the Texans’ last five games.
The Chiefs win, 28-13.
