The Super Bowl odds for the 2014 Houston Texans have changed a bit since February, following the first week of free agency.
Being an NFL-worst 2-14 last season, losing their final 14 consecutive games of the regular season, there isn’t a lot of hope for the Texans to rebound and be “real” contenders this upcoming season.
Should the Texans play better, yes, but how much better under new head coach Bill O’Brien is still up in the air. O’Brien replaces former head coach Gary Kubiak, who was fired by the Texans in December, signed as the Baltimore Ravens’ offensive coordinator this offseason.
With that said, the new Super Bowl odds for the Texans as listed by Bovada are 33/1.
On Feb. 3, the Texans were 40/1 odds to become Super Bowl champions.

This is about where the Texans belong, because for one, we have no clue as to who will be the starting quarterback next season or how they will work to improve a defense that took a step or two backwards last season.
A lot of the Texans’ offense should rest on how Arian Foster returns to the field following missing half the season in 2013 due to his back injury. Foster tweeted over the weekend that he’s been “medically cleared” by doctors.
The Seattle Seahawks are at 6/1 odds to repeat as Super Bowl champions, followed by the Denver Broncos at 7/1.
As for the AFC South, the Indianapolis Colts are 20/1 odds, followed by the Tennessee Titans at 75/1 and the Jacksonville Jaguars at 150/1.
