As the Houston Texans have two weeks to prepare before their first regular-season game, here are some “futures” odds that you can bet on.
It’s going to be Houston vs. the world in 2021 as an uphill battle will commence. Can the Texans be one of the most improved teams this season, and what are their odds to do so? When it comes to winning the AFC South, they are placed as the biggest underdog. WynnBET is our betting partner here at FanSided, let’s take a look at how the division stacks up:
WynnBET’s odds for the AFC South, Houston Texans
- Tennessee Titans (-125)
- Indianapolis Colts (+155)
- Jacksonville Jaguars (+475)
- Houston Texans (+2500)
This is basically a way of saying that the Texans have little to no shot at winning the division. That is true on one hand, as the Houston Texans went 2-4 in divisional games last season. However, all four of those losses were by less than 7 points.
Granted, that was with Deshaun Watson at the helm. The Texans just need a serviceable performance from Tyrod Taylor and if their defense continues their hot preseason start, they may just have a chance.
Being at +2500 means if you bet $100, you would receive $2500 and your $100 back. Of course, not every bet needs to be that amount down. It wouldn’t hurt to put a few down on this and see if it pays out.
The Houston Texans odds to reach the playoffs, Over/Under regular-season wins
When taking on the chance of making the playoffs, the odds are in a simple “Yes/No” format. With the “No” coming in at -1200 and the “Yes” at +700, this may be one you want to stay away from.
Houston has undergone a lot of changes to the roster and with a first-year head coach leading them, the chances of them making the playoffs realistically are slim.
If there was one thing to put your money down for is the Over/Under on regular-season wins. This Texans roster has what it takes to surprise, and with the odds for the Over 4.5 wins at +120, this could be some nice pocket change for you. If interested in the Under 4.5 wins, that would put the line at -150.
Can David Culley win the Coach of the Year Award?
David Culley got the Texans off to a 2-0 start and finished with a 2-1 record in the preseason. With some projecting Houston to be one the worst teams in the league, Culley may surprise in his first year. For Culley, his odds are at unworldly +5000. This is the same odds that Las Vegas Raiders Head Coach Jon Gruden also has as well.
Who knows how the season will play out for Houston. No matter which future bet you make, it may just bring you a little extra cash this season.
