Written by on December 16, 2022

With the end of the regular season now very much in sight, the battle for the playoffs is moving into high gear. There are a handful of teams on the brink of clinching their playoff spot, with a few almost certain to punch their ticket this weekend. Those are the teams that most of us are looking at as favorites to win the Super Bowl, but there are a couple of dark horses emerging that might just upset the apple cart in the final weeks of the season and the playoffs. The Kansas City Chiefs are definitely in among the favorites right now and can clinch the division with a win this weekend on the road in Houston. This is a matchup that looks to be about as close to a lock as it gets for the Chiefs, but they cannot take this Houston team too lightly. KC is in as a 14-point favorite, with the point total set at 49. Check out odds, analysis, and a free pick for Kansas City Chiefs versus Denver Broncos so you can get ready to bet against the NFL Lines.

Why bet on the Kansas City Chiefs

As we mentioned at the top of this piece, it’s really only a matter of time before the Chiefs clinch the AFC West, which is something they would like to get done ASAP. That said, there is more for them to do than simply win the division, with the #1 seed in the conference still up for grabs. They have the same 10-3 record as Buffalo right now, but it is the Bills who own the tiebreaker and the #1 seed. All the Chiefs can do right now is continue to win and hope that Buffalo slips up along the way. KC is certainly doing their part to stay in the hunt, getting back to winning ways after dropping a game to the Bengals, who are becoming something of a bogey team. This is a game they should win, as they have won 6 of the last 8 meetings with Houston and have gone 5-2 ATS in their last 7 versus the Texans. The UNDER has hit in 4 of their last 6 overall.

Why bet on the Houston Texans

With a record of 1-11-1, the nightmare continues for the Houston Texans, who appear to be getting worse rather than better. They come into this one on a miserable 8-game losing skid, but they did give the Dallas Cowboys all that they could handle last weekend in a 23-27 loss, so the Chiefs will need to keep that in mind ahead of this one and not get too comfortable. That defeat was the first time that the Texans had crossed the 20-point mark in a game for a while, going 6 in a row with fewer than 20 points prior to the Dallas game. They are just 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games, as well as struggling whenever they play the Chiefs. They have also seen the UNDER hit in 4 of their last 5.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

This is one of those matchups that could serve as a bit of a banana peel for the Chiefs, just as it almost was for the Cowboys last weekend. I just don’t see KC having too much trouble here, which is why I like the to win and cover.
