NFL Betting – Houston Texans Calendar Odds & Analysis For the 2021-22 Season
Houston Texans: 2020 Season Recap
There isn’t a franchise in worse shape than the Houston Texans. Houston finished 4-12 last season, but due to a misguided trade, they had no first-round pick to offset the poor season.
It’s hard to focus on much in Houston beyond the Deshaun Watson saga. After the Texans failed to loop Watson into their coaching search after promising to do so, the star quarterback came forward with a request for a trade.
Not long after, a string of sexual assault claims against Watson have come forward. With impending lawsuits, it’s impossible to know what Watson’s NFL future has in store and what it means for Houston.
2021 should be a rough one for Houston.
Houston Texans: Odds for 2021
MyBookie has you covered for your NFL betting needs. On site, you can find every available bet for the Texans, from Week 1 odds to Super Bowl LVI odds and everything in between.
Houston has the worst odds in the NFL to win the Super Bowl, at +15000.
Predictably, their odds to win the AFC are also the worst, at +6000.
The Texans are +1400 to win the AFC South, the worst mark in the division.
Houston Texans: 2021 Schedule
The AFC South has two strong playoff teams from a year ago that seem set to continue their success in the Colts and Titans. The last team in the division, the Jaguars, could be on the upswing with Trevor Lawrence now in the fold.
The Texans will face the AFC East and NFC West this season. The AFC East isn’t overtly strong besides the Buffalo Bills, but the NFC West is the best division in football.
All four teams in the NFC West could be in playoff contention this season, and Houston will be hard-pressed to find a win there.
The teams on Houston’s schedule:
- Indianapolis Colts (x2)
- Tennessee Titans (x2)
- Jacksonville Jaguars (x2)
- Buffalo Bills
- Miami Dolphins
- New England Patriots
- New York Jets
- Seattle Seahawks
- Los Angeles Rams
- Arizona Cardinals
- San Francisco 49ers
- Cleveland Browns
- Los Angeles Chargers
- Carolina Panthers
2021 Season Prediction
Do not bet on any Houston futures this season. This will be one of the worst teams in the NFL. A hodge-podge lineup of older veterans, an unproven, old coach, and numerous question marks at the quarterback position are going to make this a painful season for Texans fans.
With the uncertainty around the quarterback position, most sportsbooks aren’t taking bets on Houston’s win total for the year. Some early lines had their total at 4.5, which felt generous.
Avoid Houston this season, and expect plenty of large spreads this season. If you’d like to get a jump on Week 1, MyBookie has odds up for the first game against Jacksonville – the Jaguars are only -2.5 favorites.
NFL Houston Texans Calendar Analysis In 2020
On Thursday, Sep. 10, the Houston Texans hit the gridiron in the first game of the 2020-2021 NFL Season. The Texans battle defending champion Kansas City in a game that could determine how they fare throughout the regular season.
Houston’s odds to win the AFC Championship make them an underlay. Although they’re in the top half of all the teams in the AFC, the football squads ahead of them are much better than they are.
Houston’s biggest problem is finding help for Deshaun Watson. The defense is also old while Bill O’Brien has yet to prove he can coach his way to victories in the National Football League.
Finally, the Kansas City Chiefs, Baltimore Ravens, Pittsburgh Steelers, and New England Patriots are all better than the Houston Texans. Unless you’re a true believer, stay away form backing the Texans to win the AFC.
