Houston Texans Odds, Bet Types, and Team History

The Houston Texans experienced a setback in 2020, going 4-12 to finish fourth in the AFC South after winning back-to-back division titles. Houston was streaky last season, starting 1-6 before winning three of four games and then losing five straight to close the year. The Texans record was among the worst in the AFC, but it’s worth mentioning that they were competitive as nine of their 12 losses were by eight points or fewer. It’s possible that fortune changes under first-year coach David Culley.

QB Deshaun Watson had his best statistical season last year, throwing for 4,823 yards along with a career-best 33 passing touchdowns and only seven interceptions. There’s no guarantee Watson plays the full season though as he is in the midst of off-field issues that have not yet been resolved. If Watson becomes unavailable, veteran Tyrod Taylor and rookie Davis Mills would be the most likely candidates to start in his place.

Regardless of who is under center, Houston’s ground game will need to be better after averaging the second-fewest rushing yards in the league. David Johnson still figures to start after accounting for 1,005 scrimmage yards and eight total touchdowns in 2020. But a split backfield isn’t out of the question with the addition of Phillip Lindsay , who topped 1,000 rushing yards in 2018 and 2019 with Denver.

The thing to watch for in Houston is seeing whether the defense can improve without J.J. Watt. The Texans were the NFL’s 27th-best defense before their star left in free agency. Seven starters are back, including the entire secondary.

The Texans open the 2021 NFL season at home against the Jacksonville Jaguars. You can view the Action Network’s top odds for the game below in addition to an odds comparison for every Week 1 game right here.

Texans Team Rivals

The Texans went 4-12 in 2020, ending their streak of AFC South titles at two. Including last season, Houston has still made the playoffs in four of the past six seasons. The Tennessee Titans and Indianapolis Colts were tied atop the division at 11-5, though Tennessee won the South on a tiebreaker. Both were eliminated in the Wild Card Round of the NFL playoffs.

The Jacksonville Jaguars finished fourth in the division. They started 1-0 before losing 15 straight games to finish with the worst record in the NFL.

Betting on the Houston Texans

Texans Point Spreads

Betting point spreads are wagers based on the expectation that a team will win or lose by a certain number of points. The Texans were slightly better against the spread than they were straight up, going 6-10 against the spread. Houston’s four wins were by an average of 10.3 points and its 12 losses were by 10.1 points.

Here’s an example:

  • Colts +3.5 (+110)
  • Texans -3.5 (-110)

In this situation, the Colts are 3.5 point underdogs against the Texans. If Houston wins the game by four or more points, a $100 wager on the Texans would come with a payout of $90.91. If Indianapolis won the game outright or lost by three points or less, the same $100 wager would net $110 plus the original $100 for a total of $210.

FAQ: Everything you need to know about point spreads

Houston Texans Over/Unders

Over/under, also called point total, is a wager placed on the combined scoring of a single game. Bookmakers come up with a number and you can either bet the over or — you guessed it — the under. Here’s how it works:

Let's say the Jaguars play the Texans and the over/under is set at 49 points. A wager on the over would require Jacksonville and Houston to score 50 total points or more to win. Betting the under is an expectation that the two teams would score 48 or fewer points. It's also possible for the bet to push, which would happen if the game finished with exactly 49 points scored.

In 2020, Houston averaged 24 points per game (18th in NFL) and allowed 29 points (27th in NFL). The Texans were an even 8-8 when it came to point totals.

FAQ: Betting the point total, explained | What is a push?

Texans Moneylines

At 4-12, Houston wasn’t exactly the best play when betting a moneyline. For odds as straightforward as these, the Texans were one of the riskier picks last year. Check out this example:

  • Texans -110
  • Titans +200

The minus (-) and plus (+) signs distinguish the favorite from the underdog, making Indianapolis the favorite in this scenario. Odds can be understood more clearly if you think in terms of $10 or $100 increments. A wager on the Texans odds would mean every $110 bet nets $100. And it's the opposite for underdogs: Here the Titans moneyline was set at +200, meaning a $100 wager would profit $200.

Moneylines are also commonly used when making parlays, which are multiple bets tied into one. Let’s say you bet the Texans moneyline and a -2.5 point spread, Indianapolis would need to win by three points or more for that bet to be successful. The risk is greater, but so is the reward with increased odds. Use our Odds Calculator to calculate any bet amount or conversion.

Houston Texans Props

Player props are wagers on a single player, and they're tied to a single stat found in the box score for a game or even the whole season. These are among the most fun to bet on, especially if you're already playing fantasy football and like the player-specific focus it offers. Check out a hypothetical example below:

  • Deshaun Watson 2021 passing yards: 4,550.5

FAQ: Here’s how prop betting works

Texans Futures

Futures are somewhat similar to prop bets in the way that both are monitored over the course of a season. Except most future bets are focused on end of season success. Examples of futures are:

  • Houston Texans odds to win the AFC South
  • Houston Texans odds to win the AFC
  • Houston Texans odds to win the Super Bowl

If you’re confident that the Texans can bounce back or that David Culley is going to help Houston figure things, this is the place to be. For a full list of NFL futures, click or tap here.
