Bet Texans at Chiefs

The Texans are highly regarded as a sleeper team this year in the NFL. As long as quarterback Matt Schuab can stay healthy, they certainly have enough offensive weapons (including explosive running back Steve Slaton and the equally dynamic Andre Johnson at receiver) to make some noise this year in the AFC. An improving offensive line and a young, developing defense definitely make a case that Houston is a dark horse this season.

As for the Chiefs, they went through a whirlwind of changes this offseason, first replacing Herman Edwards with Todd Haley at head coach, as well as hiring Scott Pioli away from the New England Patriots in order to be their new general manager.

In Pioli’s first big move since taking over in Kansas City, he traded a second round pick for quarterback Matt Cassel, whom he obviously knew very well in New England. Cassel will have the joy of lining up in the same backfield as Larry Johnson, as well as throwing to emerging young receiver Dwayne Bowe. As long as their offensive line continues to develop and the defense makes a successful switch to the 3-4 alignment, the Chiefs could also be a potential dark horse in the AFC.

The Texans have been made a 2-point underdog by oddsmakers from online sports book SBGGLOBAL, while the over/under for this game has been set at 37.

The trends favor Houston and the over in this matchup, as the Texas are 7-1 over in August and Kansas City is just 1-7 against the spread in preseason.
