Deshaun Watson is already having an impact on the Houston Texans.

Outsiders are starting to respect the Houston Texans even more after they drafted former Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson this offseason.

ESPN has the Texans making a big jump in their latest power rankings.

Now the odds-makers are starting to show the Texans some love as well.

From CBS Sports:

"So who’s the biggest winner in William Hill’s post-draft odds? That would be the Houston Texans .The Texans saw their odds drastically improve after they traded up to grab Deshaun Watson during the first round of the NFL Draft on April 27. The Texans, who opened at 40-1 to win Super Bowl LII, are now listed at 20-1.That’s the largest jump that any team made in William Hill’s latest odds. Basically, getting rid of Brock Osweiler and adding a quarterback who’s not Brock Osweiler did wonders for the Texans’ odds. The Cleveland Browns should think about doing the same thing."

Not bad at all.

Let’s be honest though, can a rookie quarterback like Watson really lead the Texans to a Super Bowl?

I would love it if Watson could do such a thing, but I think the odds-makers are trying to capitalize on an excited Texans’ fanbase now that they have some hope with Watson in the fold.

Comment below and let us know what you think the odds of the Texans winning next year’s Super Bowl.
