According to oddsmakers at MyBookie.ag, Kansas City is favored in the game, as the Chiefs are getting odds of -3 points against the Texans. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 40 points. These two meet today at 4:20PM ET on ESPN/ABC.

Hopkins had a breakout year in 2015, establishing himself as one of the top receivers in the NFL for the Texans (9-7, 9-7 ATS). The third-year receiver out of Clemson caught 111 passes for 1,521 yards and 11 touchdowns this season, all career-highs for him. He has been a pretty consistent force in the Houston offense all season, tallying six 100-yard games.

The Texans’ offense and Hopkins will do battle with the Chiefs (11-5, 8-8 ATS) today, and Kansas City’s ninth-ranked passing defense. KC is giving up just 231.1 yards per game through the air this season. When these two met to start the season, Hopkins caught 9 passes for 98 yards with two touchdowns. For today’s playoff game, oddsmakers have listed Hopkins’ over/under for receptions at 7 and his over/under for receiving yards at 92.5. Hopkins has caught 7 or more passes in 9 games this year, including his last three outings. He also has had at least 93 yards receiving in nine games. Hopkins has had double-digit targets in all but three games this season, so look for Brian Hoyer to give Hopkins plenty of chances to make plays.
