Houston Texans Odds, Bet Types, and Team History
Expectations for the Houston Texans are once again low entering this season.
Houston had the third overall pick in last year's draft, and it looks like a similar pick could be in store for 2023. The Texans made no significant free agent acquisitions and are rolling with Davis Mills again at quarterback. The offensive line should be shored up a little bit, but Mills still doesn't have too much help around him. Defensively, rookie Derek Stingley Jr. provides some optimism, but there is still a big lack of proven playmakers around the defense.
Houston's win total is the lowest in the AFC South. The Texans will be a popular team to bet against this season given their lack of literally any hype.
Texans Team Rivals
After a string of playoff appearances under Bill O'Brien, Houston has struggled mightily since firing the now-Alabama offensive coordinator. Now, the division is run by the Tennessee Titans and Indianapolis Colts, with Tennessee getting the No. 1 seed in the AFC last season.
The Jacksonville Jaguars finished fourth in the division. It appears it will be a race to third between the Jags and Texans again this year.
Betting on the Houston Texans
Texans Point Spreads
Betting point spreads are wagers based on the expectation that a team will win or lose by a certain number of points. The Texans were slightly better against the spread than they were straight up, going 6-10 against the spread. Houston’s four wins were by an average of 10.3 points and its 12 losses were by 10.1 points.
Here’s an example:
- Colts +3.5 (+110)
- Texans -3.5 (-110)
In this situation, the Colts are 3.5 point underdogs against the Texans. If Houston wins the game by four or more points, a $100 wager on the Texans would come with a payout of $90.91. If Indianapolis won the game outright or lost by three points or less, the same $100 wager would net $110 plus the original $100 for a total of $210.

Houston Texans Over/Unders
Over/under, also called point total, is a wager placed on the combined scoring of a single game. Bookmakers come up with a number and you can either bet the over or — you guessed it — the under. Here’s how it works:
Let's say the Jaguars play the Texans and the over/under is set at 49 points. A wager on the over would require Jacksonville and Houston to score 50 total points or more to win. Betting the under is an expectation that the two teams would score 48 or fewer points. It's also possible for the bet to push, which would happen if the game finished with exactly 49 points scored.
In 2020, Houston averaged 24 points per game (18th in NFL) and allowed 29 points (27th in NFL). The Texans were an even 8-8 when it came to point totals.
FAQ: Betting the point total, explained | What is a push?
At 4-12, Houston wasn’t exactly the best play when betting a moneyline. For odds as straightforward as these, the Texans were one of the riskier picks last year. Check out this example:
- Texans -110
- Titans +200
The minus (-) and plus (+) signs distinguish the favorite from the underdog, making Indianapolis the favorite in this scenario. Odds can be understood more clearly if you think in terms of $10 or $100 increments. A wager on the Texans odds would mean every $110 bet nets $100. And it's the opposite for underdogs: Here the Titans moneyline was set at +200, meaning a $100 wager would profit $200.
Moneylines are also commonly used when making parlays, which are multiple bets tied into one. Let’s say you bet the Texans moneyline and a -2.5 point spread, Indianapolis would need to win by three points or more for that bet to be successful. The risk is greater, but so is the reward with increased odds. Use our Odds Calculator to calculate any bet amount or conversion.

Houston Texans Props
Player props are wagers on a single player, and they're tied to a single stat found in the box score for a game or even the whole season. These are among the most fun to bet on, especially if you're already playing fantasy football and like the player-specific focus it offers. Check out a hypothetical example below:
- Deshaun Watson 2021 passing yards: 4,550.5
Futures are somewhat similar to prop bets in the way that both are monitored over the course of a season. Except most future bets are focused on end of season success. Examples of futures are:
- Houston Texans odds to win the AFC South
- Houston Texans odds to win the AFC
- Houston Texans odds to win the Super Bowl
If you’re confident that the Texans can bounce back or that David Culley is going to help Houston figure things, this is the place to be. For a full list of NFL futures, click or tap here.
