Chiefs Can Maintain Unbeaten Run at Texans

It seems hard to believe but after just four weeks of the NFL season, we have only one team who are unbeaten and that is the Kansas City Chiefs. After spoiling the opening day party in New England, the Chiefs have gone from strength to strength this season. They face another huge task on the road on Sunday night, but I believe they can beat the improving Houston Texans and go 5-0 for the season and you can get your bets down both before and during the game over at Bovada.

The Chiefs have looked very good so far and their rookie running back Kareem Hunt looks to be their missing piece. In four games he has six touchdowns and has gained a total of 659 yards on the ground and in the air. He offers a two-pronged attack and had the ability to cause even the best defensive players huge problems. Elsewhere quarterback Alex Smith has had an equally impressive start and with Hunt joining Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill as targets for him, he finally has plenty to throw at in Kansas.

The Texans are rapidly improving and the majority of that is down to the play of rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson. He put up a great performance in defeat against the New England Patriots two weeks ago and followed that up by leading his team to a franchise record 50+ points on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans. The Texans have long been searching for someone capable of throwing the ball to DeAndre Hopkins and Watson is making a case to be that man. Running back Lamar Miller put up his best numbers of the season so far against the Titans and after paying big bucks to acquire him in 2016, the Texans will want to see that continue.

This game has the makings of being a very good, close game with the fact that it is being played in Houston proving to be a great leveller. The Chiefs are close to the top of their game right now and have set the bar this season, but Houston are rapidly improving with Deshaun Watson running the show and shouldn’t be discounted lightly.

In what will be a very close affair, I am going to side with the Chiefs, although this one is going to be very tough for them and they are going to have to play as well as they have done all season to win the game.
