In NFL Divisional Playoffs, we will see Houston Texans at Kansas City Chiefs.
The Houston Texans finished the season 10-6 and last week, they managed to beat the Bills. Houston trailed 13-0 at half-time and everything suggested that they will go home after the wild card round. Deshaun Watson, however, had different thoughts and after a very special game from him, they qualified for the semis. He completed 20 out of his 25 throwing attempts for 247 yards and 1 passing touchdown while also rushing for 55 yards on 14 carries. Nothing was working for him the whole night, however, Hopkins and he managed to sneak into the next round.
The Kansas City Chiefs got a lot better when Patrick Mahomes returned to action and when the defense improved. The defense has only allowed 20 or more points in 1 of the last 6 games and it was against the Chargers in the last week where some key players on defense were rested. Patrick Mahomes had a very exciting campaign, throwing for 4031 yards, 26 touchdowns and 5 interceptions. Damien Williams and LeSean McCoy had some rough games and they both combine for around 900 rushing yards overall. The offense does not have any trouble, moving the chains and it will be very interesting to see them fare against the Texans.
Last time these two teams met, the Texans won 31-24. Deshaun Watson had a rough game but still managed to win a game in which Carlos Hyde controlled the clock easily. I believe that Kansas City will certainly win this one, however, 9 points are too many for teams that have playmakers on offense. I expect a high-scoring game with the Chiefs winning it but not covering the spread.
Pick: Houston Texans +9½ (-110) Spread at
