Texans vs. Chiefs 2013 odds: K.C. laying points at home

Kyle Rivas

Kansas City is unbeaten and hopes to stay that way against Houston.

The Kansas City Chiefs are the biggest surprise of the NFL season at 6-0, and hope to continue their winning ways against the Houston Texans on Sunday afternoon at Arrowhead Stadium.

According to Oddsshark.com, the Chiefs are a 7.5-point favorite with an over/under of 40.

Kansas City has the best scoring defense in the league, averaging less than 11 points per game allowed. The Chiefs have also racked up 31 sacks led by Justin Houston's 9.5 and Tamba Hali's 7.5, also tops in the NFL.

Houston comes in as one of the most confounding teams. The Texans have plenty of talent on both sides of the ball but are 2-4 after losing four straight, including a 38-13 debacle last weekend at home versus the St. Louis Rams.

It's unclear whether Matt Schaub will be healthy enough to play this week, as he recovers from an ankle/leg injury. Should he be on bench, the starting duties will be left to either T.J. Yates or Case Keenum.
