1. The Houston Texans will overcome the betting spread

When a team is a double-digit underdog entering the first game of the season, that isn’t such a great way to start the season. Yes, the Houston Texans are facing the mighty Chiefs, but to be a +10 underdog in Week 1 is tough to see.

The bold prediction is the … the Texans will beat the spread and not lose by 11 or more points. In fact, let’s go one further … though the Chiefs are expected to win this game played at Arrowhead Stadium, the Texans will be within single digits of the Chiefs on the scoreboard.

This is by no means betting advice to take and use because I’m no oddsmaker by any means, but with how this entire offseason has gone, and how neither team have played an real in-game action in a preseason environment, the Houston Texans have a chance in front of them to not get blown out of the water as many believe will happen.

Next. Texans at Chiefs: TV schedule, radio, live stream, more. dark

Houston will compete against the Chiefs with a strong effort, and though they’ll most likely start the season at 0-1, this franchise won’t be embarrassed by the Chiefs again. They will stand up and battle strong with the best team in football entering the season, letting the rest of the league know they won’t be a pushover in 2020.
