NFL: Houston Over 10 wins
Over 10 Wins -105,
Under 10 wins -125
(Future Lines from
Texans Looking to Stop Second Half
Two straight postseason appearances have ended exactly the same
way the last two years for the Houston Texans: a win over
Cincinnati in the first round, followed by a loss on the road.
In addition, struggles in the latter portion of the season have
been frustrating obstacles in getting the franchise to its first
Despite those past disappointments, the NFL futures betting
number currently on the board at
BOVADA.LV is 10 wins for the Texans , a number
that is only topped within the AFC by Denver and New England.
The Houston offense still has its three key weapons in
quarterback Matt Schaub, running back Arian Foster and wide
receiver Andre Johnson. Schaub threw for just over 4,000 yards,
bouncing back after his injury-shortened 2011 season. His main
target, Johnson, hauled in 112 passes, while Foster crossed the
goal line 15 times while also running for over 1,400 yards.
On defense, the return of NFL Defensive Player of the Year J.J.
Watt stands out after the now-24-year-old ended the year with
20.5 sacks. He’ll hopefully be aided by both inside linebacker
Brian Cushing and new arrival Ed Reed at safety, though both are
recovering from offseason surgeries.
Last season, the Texans romped through the first three-quarters
of the season with an 11-1 mark, then stumbled down the stretch
with losses in three of the last four games. That slide was
costly, since it sent the team from having home field advantage
throughout the playoffs to a team that traveled to a
season-ending playoff loss on the road to the Patriots.
From a wagering standpoint, Houston was a solid pick during the
first half of last season, covering in six of its eight games.
The second half saw the team go 3-5 against the number, while
the totals record offered no patterns either for or against
taking the Texans.
One quirky number that stands out concerning the Houston ATS
numbers is the fact that Gary Kubiak’s team has had no problems
rewarding their backers when heavily favored. In the seven games
over the past two years in which the Texans have been
double-digit favorites, the team has cashed in five of those
opportunities, with another ending in a push.
Looking at the 2013 schedule, there’s a rough early stretch of
three games in which a home contest versus Seattle is sandwiched
between road games to Baltimore and San Francisco. Following
that, the level of competition is only periodically challenging
through the end of November. At that point, home games against
the Patriots and Broncos, along with a trip to Indianapolis,
will stand in Houston’s way.
The easiest way for the Texans to best the 10-win total is to
take care of business during those first three months. Doing
that, while getting those walking wounded back on the field,
will make those who invest their money on a big Houston season
happy. The view from here is that the team will accomplish at
least 11 victories in 2013, so take the “Over”.
