Houston Texans Player Stats
There's no team with more uncertainty heading into the 2021-22 season than the Houston Texans, who finished last year with the third-worst record and covered the spread at the second-worst rate in the league.
Oddsmakers seem to think the era of star QB Deshaun Watson is over in Houston, as the Texans have the worst odds in the league to win the Super Bowl. See all of the Texans for futures, as well as spreads, moneylines and over/unders, for the upcoming season.
Texans Point Spreads
For every NFL game, sportsbooks will list many possible bets, including the point spread. It's easy to understand once you get the hang of it: The Texans is just a prediction of how much they'll win or lose by.
Here’s a brief example of a spread for a Texans game:
- Texans +6.5 (-110)
- Titans -6.5 (-110)
The favorite is indicated by the minus sign (-), while the underdog is indicated by the plus sign (+). In this situation, a bet on the Texans spread would win if Houston wins the game or loses by six points or less. If the win the game by seven points or more, the bet would lose.
Houston Texans Over/Unders
An , or a total, is exactly how it sounds: It's a bet on whether a game will go over or under a set amount of points. It doesn't matter who wins the game, just whether the combined amount of points is above or below the total.
For example, say the Texans and have an over/under of 47. In that situation, if you bet the over, you would win your wager if the combined point total of the Texans and Colts finished at 48 or more. It would lose if it was at 46 or lower, and it would -- meaning you'd get your money back -- if it finished at exactly 47 points.
Whereas spread bets are wagers on the point differential in the game, moneyline bets are simply wagers on which team will win the game. The numbers on moneyline bets are similar to the found on spread bets, and it's easy to think about in increments of $100.
Say the Texans are -130 on the moneyline against the : That means they're the favorites in the game, and you'd have to bet $130 to win $100. If Houston was +130 in a game, you would win $130 on a $100 bet on the Texans if they won the game.
Houston Texans Props
If you're looking to dip your toes into betting, player prop bets are a good starting point. They're similar to fantasy football in that you're concerned about only the performance of a single individual.
For example, you can bet on Texans props like whether wide receiver Brandin Cooks will go over or under 53.5 receiving yards.
Futures bets are how they sound: They're wagers on an outcome that's in the more distant future than the next game.
