NFL Week 1 Picks: Houston Texans @ Kansas City Chiefs
Expert 'capper Brian Good previews the very first game of the NFL season and provides his picks
We’re getting the season started with a bang as two of the best quarterbacks the league has to offer face off.
Houston Texans +10
I think Kansas City is still the best team in the NFL, and Patrick Mahomes is the league’s best QB, but 10 points is a lot for the Chiefs to be laying. Last season’s historic comeback in the Divisional Round will be fresh on everyone’s mind, but I think it’s safe to expect Deshaun Watson to keep his team within a touchdown. The Texans got worse by basically giving away DeAndre Hopkins, but Brandin Cooks is in Houston now along with Kenny Stills and Randall Cobb. Chiefs win fairly easily but Texans keep it from getting to a blowout.
