The Houston Texans finally broke through last season, making the postseason for the first time in the franchise’s history, but even better things could be on the horizon for the team this year based upon the latest 2013 Houston Texans Super Bowl Odds. The Texans are viewed as a major Lombardi contender at +1000 odds to win Super Bowl XLVII. Houston is also the second pick (New England Patriots) to win the AFC Championship at +450 odds and a prohibitive favorite to win the AFC South at -650 odds (risk $650 to win $100).
The Texans sustained a season ending injury to, arguably, their most important player in quarterback Matt Schaub, but they still posted a 10-6 record and earned a home playoff win over the Cincinnati Bengals. Houston’s tremendous improvement on the defensive side of the ball, coupled with the return of Schaub, has offshore book BetOnline.com anticipating another solid season from the Texans. The odds maker has the team’s NFL regular season win total set at 10.5 games (Over 10.5 wins -105, Under 10.5 wins -125).
Cantor Gaming of Las Vegas envisions another winning season for the once beleaguered franchise as well. Mike Colbert, the sports book director for Cantor, has the Texans favored in nine games and listed as a pick’em in two others (at Broncos, at Jets).
