While some NFL teams seem to have the ability to stay competitive from year to year, there are many more who experience the ups and downs that tends to come with the salary cap. It’s not uncommon to see teams go all in on winning a Super Bowl and then be forced to cut salaries and rebuild a little later. The Houston Texans are very much in the rebuilding phase now, and given all that has happened on and off the field, you get the sense that they are still a very long way away from being competitive. They only managed 4 wins last season, with the belief being that things are not about to get better. In fact, the bookies have the win total for the Texans set at 4 ½ this season, so there is a very good chance that things in Houston might get worse before they improve. Let’s take a look at the NFL Betting options for the Texans this season.

Houston Win Total 2022
After a season where the Texans were caught between a rock and a hard place with the DeShaun Watson situation, they can now move forward after shipping Watson off to Cleveland. It will be Davis Mills who will likely get the start for the Texans in the coming season, and while he needs to improve, he is not the only problem that this team has, as there are holes all over the field that need to be filled. This is not something that is going to happen right away, and you do have to wonder if the Texans have hit bottom yet. My guess is that they have not, which is why we might well be looking at the UNDER 4 ½ wins this season.
Texans Division and Conference Odds
Last season, we saw the AFC South become a 2-horse race, with the Tennessee Titans and Indianapolis Colts pulling away from the Texans and Jaguars in pretty short order. I expect it to be the same story this season, which is something that the bookies seem to agree with. The Texans are currently listed at +2700 to win the division, which really does tell you all you need to know about the current state of this team. It’s tough to see where their wins are going to come from this season, so it seems pointless to talk about the, challenging for the division.
It is a similar story with the Conference Championship odds, with the Texans sitting at the bottom of the bookies board at +10000 to win the AFC. I don’t think there are any bettors looking for advice on whether or not to bet on the Texans, as they are absolutely one of the worst teams in the league heading into the new season.
Super Bowl Odds
It is, to be quite honest, ridiculous to even mention the Super Bowl and the Houston Texans in the same sentence. Just as they are in the AFC, the Houston Texans are on the board as the biggest longshot to win the championship. Currently listed at +22000, it would likely only be the most diehard Texans fan who put any money on that outcome.
