The wait is nearly over! Football action returns this coming Thursday, with the Houston Texans heading to defending Super Bowl champions the Kansas City Chiefs, in a mouth-watering season opener.
These teams last met in the divisional round of the playoffs back in January – a pivotal night in the course of the 2019 season with Kansas City coming back from 0-24 down to win against all odds.
The final score of 51-31 no doubt still haunts Texans fans to this day. While the Chiefs channelled the momentum of that comeback to reach their first Super Bowl since 1969, and the rest is history.
Now, the Texans will be hell-bent on retribution. And their chances have increased with 2 of Chief’s offensive starters – running back Damien Williams and guard Laurent Dvernay-Tardif – opting out of the 2020 season due to Covid-19.
Consider also that home advantage is likely diluted in an empty stadium, and suddenly the visitors will fancy their chances of causing an upset at odds of 4.57.
Meanwhile, the total points between these 2 teams have exceeded the current line of 53.5 in each of the last 3 meetings. You can back history to repeat itself a 4th time at appetising odds of 1.93.
