Kansas City Chiefs vs. Houston Texans

The Kansas City Chiefs vs. Houston Texans spread of -4 ½ (favoring Houston) has so far attracted even betting action.  Half the online sportsbooks were offering the line at -4, the other +4 ½ (for Chiefs backers).

The Chiefs became the last undefeated team to lose a game and come into this one at 3-1.  The Texans come into this game at 3-2.

Kansas City was held to fewer than 10 points for the second time since the start of last season.

"We're a team trying to transition into becoming a good team. We're not there," Kansas City coach Todd Haley said. "If we had won this game, I'd be saying the same thing. Good is much bigger than four games. Good is measured a little differently, but we are transitioning and we are making progress."

Meanwhile, the Texans last week were beaten badly by a resurgent New York Giants team.  Typically incorporating an explosive offense, Houston only had 74 total yards at halftime.

Some trends to look at coming into this game for sports bettors include:

Houston last played Kansas City at home in 2007 and beat them by 17 points.

The Texans are 4-0 Against The Spread in their last 4 games following a ATS loss and Texans are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games following a S.U. loss while the Chiefs are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games following a ATS loss..

The Chiefs are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games as an underdog.  They are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 road games vs. a team with a winning home record.

The Texans are 8-1 ATS in their last 9 games after scoring less than 15 points in their previous game.

They are, however, just 4-10-1 ATS in their last 15 games in October. – Tyrone Black reporting for Gambling911.com.

Many sportsbooks have stopped taking bets on college football in light of the Big 10 and PAC 12 cancelling their fall seasons.

With the Big 10 and PAC 12 officially cancelling their college football slate this fall, one has to wonder how this will impact the sportsbooks bottom line.  Of course, attempts to play in the spring would likely more than make up for any losses down the road.

The Big 10 Presidents were set to meet at 10:30 am ET to discuss whether they will have fall football.  Should they decide not to, the Pac-12 is likely to follow.  Among the remaining three Power 5 teams, the Big 12 has stayed quiet while both the SEC and AAC are leaning more towards playing.  Throwing a monkey wrench into the situation, some Big 10 teams like Nebraska have said they are willing to play elsewhere should the conference cancel.
