Whenever the Kansas City Chief sponsor the Houston Texans (1:00 P.M ET, CBS), they will hope that Patrick Mahomes fur is okay. He was able to play through a high ankle sprain last week but he had been restricted. Last weeks loss to the Colts was the first time that the Chiefs offense was held to under 26 points with Mahomes. He says so we will have to take him at his 17, that his ankle is nice.
The Chiefs are hopeful that Tyreek Hill may perform on Sunday but there has been no evidence as yet. A week he did clinic and there is a possibility hell be prepared to go from the Texans.
The significance for this offense of hill can not be understated although they have played well in his absence. Sammy Watkins has been the Chiefs wide receiver in the lack of Hill but might not perform because of a hamstring injury.
In Week 4, I scaling and had said that I believed Deshaun Watson appeared like a top 10 quarterback. Against the Falcons, he threw for 426 yards and five touchdowns. He is well on his way while he can still have something to improve on before he can be considered elite. This game between the Texans and the Chiefs will probably be a battle of the top two quarterbacks in the 2017 draft (Mitch Trubisky was picked #2 but this guide isnt about the Bears and their errors ).
This match promises to be a shootout with two in regards to throwing downfield. Because the Texans certainly have the firepower for a win on the 25, the Chiefs pass rush will need to place pressure.
This line opened at Chiefs -7.5 along with the total in 55 based on where you shop. The spread has proceeded all the way down to Chiefs although the total has not seen much movement. The money coming in about the Texans is due to their incredible offensive last week, revealing. So that Texans can put up a great deal of points in Kansas City is valid the Chiefs defense isnt very good.
Add to this the concerns over Mahomes high ankle sprain and there has been a lot of money taking the things.
?? 4 of Texans the last 5 games on the road have gone Over
?? Texans really will be 1-4 SU the last 5 games against the Chiefs
?? 9 of the Chiefs past 13 matches have gone Through
?? Chiefs are 12-4 SU at home in their past 16 games at home
My pick for this game
Over 55 (-107) in 5Dimes
While the spread has proceeded into the Texans prefer, Id be more comfy at +7.5 than +4. One match from the Chiefs on the street does not allow me lose faith while I do believe the Texans could win outright. They are one of the best clubs in the group and might be getting among the most dangerous weapons in Tyreek Hill of the game back .
Is two quarterbacks that like to take chances playing two guards that provide up points. Calling this one a shootout appears more inclined than saying one side gets the advantage over another, while going using the Over might look to be a drama. Particularly when it has to do with the Texans who never look like the team that is exact same from 1 week to another. For each of these reasons, my selection for this Week 6 game between the Chiefs and the Texans is Over 55.
