Texans vs. Chiefs
The NFL plays a traditional standalone season opener on the Thursday before the first full Sunday of the regular season. This game typically involves the defending Super Bowl champion hosting the game, and that is the case this year as the Chiefs will raise their championship banner at Arrowhead Stadium before the game against Houston.
The Chiefs are currently favored -10 at DraftKings Sportsbook and the game has the highest total of the Week 1 NFL slate at 54.5 points. The Chiefs are also the heaviest moneyline favorites for Week 1 at -500.
Defending Super Bowl champions have been extremely successful in the NFL Kickoff game since 2004, going 14-2 straight-up.
