What defines success for each NFL team in 2023 is different. For some, anything short of the Super Bowl is a failure. For the Texans, it’s all about the future. If when the 2023 regular season ends and it looks like DeMeco Ryans is the right choice for head coach, and C.J. Stroud was the right choice at quarterback, the year will be successful.
It’s about a new direction, a new hope, and a new Texans team that will be ready to return to the playoffs in 2024 and beyond.
Let’s see if Houston Texans have what it takes to back the betting lines to win the Super Bowl.

Texans Futures Bets
C.J. Stroud – Offensive Rookie of the Year (+750)
With the No. 2 overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft the Texans took C.J. Stroud from Ohio State. The future of the franchise now rests on his shoulders, and fair or not, he will be compared as a quarterback to former Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson.
Stroud is the fourth betting favorite to win Offensive Rookie of the Year, behind running back Bijan Robinson (+250) and fellow QBs Bryce Young (+500) and Anthony Richardson (+600).
Will Anderson – Defensive Rookie of the Year (+350)
After selecting Stroud at No. 2, the Texans made a big trade to move up to No. 3 to select Alabama EDGE rusher Will Anderson.
A number of pundits think Houston gave up too much for Anderson, but at the same time bookmakers rank him as the favorite to win Defensive Rookie of the Year. If he does win the award and turn into the player we all think he will be, the trade will be worth it.
DeMeco Ryans – Coach of the Year (+2000)
At +2000 new Texans head coach DeMeco Ryans is eighth on the betting list of potential Coach of the Year winners. Dan Campbell of the Lions is the current favorite.
Ryans is a former linebacker in Houston, and he is the former defensive coordinator for the 49ers. Last year he was named the NFL Assistant Coach of the Year.
Texans Win Total 6.5 (+110)
The under on the Houston Texans win total pays just -130. So why not take the over at +110. They are going to be a better team this year. They have a great rookie class coming in, tight end Dalton Schultz was a big add in free agency, and Jimmie Ward is a solid signing at safety.
Based on the 2023 win total projections, Houston has the seventh easiest schedule in the NFL.
Weekly Texans Betting
While the Texans finished last year a terrible 3-13-1, they were actually an average betting team, finishing 8-8-1 against the spread. On the road they were 5-3-1 ATS. They were the underdog in all 17 games.
It’s a new year, and a new betting landscape for Houston. In Week 1 they are big road dogs at the Ravens, but Week 2 at home in the battle of rookie QBs, the Texans are favorites against the Colts. They are also favorites in Week 9 against Tampa Bay and Week 11 at home against Arizona.
It’s only three of the 17 games, but it’s trending up from last season.
