Why Bet The Kansas City Chiefs To Beat The Texans
If you bet on the Kansas City to beat Houston last season, you would of won twice, in week 1 and in their NFL Wildcard tilt. Both games were in Houston. In week one of the 2015 season, Kansas City beat Houston 27-20. In the playoffs, the Chiefs not only beat the Texans, but they also embarrassed them with a 30-0 score.
The Kansas City Chiefs hope to build on their miracle comeback victory over the San Diego Chargers. Alex Smith is completing 70.8 percent of his passes for 363 yards, two touchdowns and one interception.
QB Alex Smith threw for 363 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception. He was fantastic in the fourth quarter as his team erased a 17-point deficit in the last 15 minutes of the game.
KC has only lost once in their last their last 13 spanning to last season. The only loss came to the New England Patriots in the AFC divisional finals. The Chiefs are also 5-1 ATS in their last six games as an underdog of 0.5-3.0 points, and 8-2 ATS in their last ten games as a road underdog of 0.5-3.0.
Why Bet The Houston Texans To Beat The Chiefs
Betting on the Houston Texans was a mixed bag after the team went 9-7 last year with a patch work of four starting QBs. They solved that problem by signing QB Brock Osweiler who has already led the team to their first win of the by beating the Chicago Bears 23-14. Osweiler threw 231 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception. Last season it took three games and their second QB to win their first game.
"There was nothing about the game that was perfect but we just kept playing … and we made the big plays when we needed to," Osweiler said after beating the Bears.
Last season the Texans defense was supposed to be their top asset, but faltered due to injury and sub-par play. This year, even with the loss of LB Brian Cushing, the Texans D aims to be dominate. Last week they sacked Bears’ QB Jay Cutler five times. They could have a huge day against Alex Smith who was sacked 45 times last season, the third most in 2015.
This game is in Houston. The Texans are 5-2 ATS in their last seven home games, 5-0 ATS in their last five games as a favorite, 4-1 ATS in their last five games overall, and 4-0 ATS in their last four games as a home favorite.
