Odds and Betting Information
While he is already worried about the run, Houston’s defense will have a full hand when asked to defend the entire field against the pass. I expect Kansas City to move the ball well as they score more than 30 points. Judging by the Texans’ offensive injuries, they’ll have a hard time scoring more than 17 points. The game here is on Chiefs minus points.
Player specs for this game are yet to be published in SI Sportsbook, but I love how Travis Kelce and Isiah Pacheco scored goals and reviewed the totals for the home and running fields.
