The first week of action of NFL is charged with a some very interesting matchups that could potentially have playoff implications later on the season. Price per head sport betting fans will be waiting for the game that will take place between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Houston Texans, as both teams can possibly be AFC playoff teams. For both teams and the possible playoff implications this game could have, winning this first game can be crucial.
The Kansas City Chiefs offensive strategy for this game appears to be very evident, they need their offensive line to provide Alex Smith enough time to throw the football. The Chiefs will also benefit from the fact of having Jamaal Charles providing a great running game threat. Price per head sports betting fans can expect a good mixture of passes and running game from the Chiefs. However, the Texans defense is quite a sight and very likely the toughest in the NFL. J.J. Watt, Donald Stephenson, Jadeveon Clowney and the newly added Vince Wilfork make for a pretty scary defensive unit. The Chiefs will need to result to some creative offensive thinking if they wish to overcome the Texans.
Offensively speaking the Texans presents an intriguing unit. Brian Hoyer edged out Ryan Mallet for the starting position as QB. Andre Johnson left the team for Indianapolis and that left DeAndre Hopkins as the top receiver for Houston. A lot is expected from Hopkins as many experts in the Price per head sports betting world are predicting a fantastic year from this young man. Houston’s offense will feel Arian Foster’s absence as he is expected to return until week 3. This could contribute to this being a low scoring game.
The key for this game, for either team will be to be precise on offense, because both defenses are strong and very talented. On that department the Texans might have a slight edge. For the Chiefs, Dontari Poe is questionable for this game, and his absence can be exploited by Houston, as they will try to use their run game to their advantage to open up the Chiefs defensive line. This game is going to be hard-hitting and rough. It will be a test of which defense can hold on the most, and there will not be a lot of scoring on this game, so live betting fans will want to take notice.
Considering how the game is gearing up, the Texans appear to have more resources to win this game than the Chiefs. Expect this game to end up 27-20.
