These two teams met early on in the season in Week 6, with the Texans coming out on top 31-24. At that point in the season however, Patrick Mahomes was not 100% healthy and the Chiefs were not clicking at all cylinders. This Chiefs team is much different now than they were in Week 6. Deshaun Watson and Carlos Hyde will need to play key roles offensively for the Texans to come out on top in this rematch game. I am anticipating a much cleaner game from the Chiefs here, and it will just be too much for the Texans to pull off the upset. The spread currently sits at 9.5, and based on how the Texans have played all season long, I can see them losing by 9.5 or more if they don’t start fast. Give me the Chiefs to win and cover the 9.5 points.
Straight Up Pick: Kansas City Chiefs
Against the Spread: Kansas City Chiefs -9.5
Over/Under: UNDER 51
