Houston Texans Player Stats
Houston Texans Odds, Bet Types, and Team History
The Texans have made a bold move by hiring former 49ers defensive coordinator, DeMeco Ryans, as their new head coach. He is considered an up-and-coming coaching candidate in the NFL, and his energy and leadership will be crucial in rebuilding the team.
During the offseason, the Texans made several notable signings and acquisitions to strengthen their roster. They added wide receiver Robert Woods, safety Jimmie Ward, defensive tackle Sheldon Rankins, tight end Dalton Schultz, and others in free agency. Conversely, they traded away wide receiver Brandin Cooks but made significant draft moves to acquire highly-regarded prospects.
The Texans had two top-three picks in the 2023 NFL Draft. With the second overall pick, they selected quarterback C.J. Stroud, who is expected to be their future signal-caller. They then traded up to the third overall pick to secure pass rusher Will Anderson Jr., a promising talent who is expected to make an impact on the team's defense.
With the new coaching staff and additions to the roster, there is a sense of optimism surrounding the Texans' future. The team has the potential to surprise the league and improve significantly from their previous season. While there are still areas of concern and uncertainty, such as the development of rookie quarterback C.J. Stroud and the performance of the defense, there are reasons to believe better days lie ahead for Houston.
Texans Team Rivals
Houston has endured their fair share of struggles in the past. LAst year they placed last in the AFC South, and the year before they finished 3rd. There is an air of optimism surrounding the team, but it is hard to tell if they will buck the Jacksonville Jaguars from the top spot.
Their fellow AFC South opponents all look to improve, with the Tennessee Titans drafting Kentucky QB Will Levis. The Indianapolis Colts drafted Florida Q B Anthony Richardson, and it seems that both teams will be a force to reckon with in the 2023 season.
Betting on the Houston Texans
As of the current state of affairs, sports betting remains unauthorized in Texas, with limited advancement toward its potential legalization in the year 2025. However, should you desire to place wagers on the Houston Texans and find yourself in a jurisdiction where sports betting is legal, you may consider the utilization of this BetMGM Bonus Code as an option.
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 8-8-1 against the spread. Houston’s three wins were by an average of 4.3 points and its 13 losses were by 11.1 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 2022, Houston averaged 17 points per game (30th in NFL) and allowed 24.7 points (27th in NFL). The Texans were 7-10 when it came to point totals.
At 3-13-1, 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:
- C.J. Stroud 2023 passing yards: 3325.5
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
