Kansas City Chiefs vs Houston Texans
Sunday Night Football Prediction

When: 8:30 PM ET, Sunday, October 8, 2017
Where: NRG Stadium, Houston, Texas
Betting Line: Chiefs +1
Total: 46

The NFL’s lone unbeaten team, the Kansas City Chiefs visit the Houston Texans on Sunday night. The Texans have been a different team since Deshuan Watson took over. He had five touchdowns in last week’s 57-14 beat down of Tennessee. Alex Smith has eight touchdowns versus zero interceptions and leads the league in both passer rating (124.2) and completing percentage (76.0). Rookie running back Kareem Hunt has rushed for more than 100 yards three times. Tight end Travis Kelce has 21 catches and had his second 100-yard game vs Washington.

Watson won a national championship with Clemson last January so playing in the spotlight is nothing new to him. He threw for 283 yards and four touchdowns and rushed for another score last week. DeAndre Hopkins is Watson’s favorite target with 31 receptions. Running back Lamar Miller scored his first two touchdowns of the season last week,

Chiefs vs Texans Betting Prediction
Sunday Night Football 10-08-17

The Chiefs have been throwing the ball deep this year and it has really opened up the offense. With Watson at quarterback the Texans look like they finally found the quarterback they have been looking for. The line that stands out for me is the total. Both of these teams will score more than 24 points so I have them going over the total by a touchdown.

Bet: Over 46 points
Score Prediction: Texans 28 – Chiefs 27
