Houston is 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 road games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games as a road underdog while the under is 7-3 in their last 10 games overall. Kansas City is 5-0-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall and 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 home games while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 playoff home games. The road team is 6-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings between these two teams.

The Chiefs were solid against the number down the stretch, including a pair of covers as double-digit favorites. However, none of those games were against great offensive teams, as the most impressive name on that list, New England, were a shell of themselves offensively as the season progressed and the rest of those teams were in the bottom half of the league in scoring this season. Houston’s already gone to Arrowhead and won this season, and while I’m not sure it happens in the playoffs, the Texans have shown guts and grit from rallying against Buffalo last week. I also like Deshaun Watson and that Houston offense and the Texans’ pass rush will be sure to give the Chiefs some fits. I’ll take a shot with Houston and the points as I see this being a highly entertaining game as well.
