According to oddsmakers from Bovada.lv, Kansas City is the favorite at home, as the Chiefs have odds of -6.5 points against the Texans.

The spread climbed to a peak of 7.5 before falling back to 6.5. The over/under total opened at 40 points and held there for most of the week before falling back to 39.5.

Kansas City is coming off a 24-7 win over the Raiders last week. The Chiefs dominated the game with their defense, racking up three turnovers and nine sacks while holding Oakland to 274 yards. The defense now has an amazing 30 sacks on the season to go with 18 turnovers. Justin Houston already has 9.5 sacks to his credit to lead the team.

The Texans also lost Matt Schaub to an injury in the game and now Case Keenum will make his first start. Arian Foster will have to step up this week. He has 531 rushing yards and one touchdown to lead the offense. The Texans defense has created just three turnovers this season to add to the dysfunction of the team.
