Texans Super Bowl Odds

The Houston Texans weren’t expected to compete for a Super Bowl this season, especially after the team lost All-Pro and three-time Defensive Player of the Year, J.J. Watt for the season with a knee injury.

After their embarrassing loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars in their season opener, head coach Bill O’Brien handed the reigns of the offense to rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson, which might have been the best decision of his coaching career.

Since Watson took over as the team’s starter, the Texans have scored at least 30 points in four of his five starts. The offense, which was stagnant last season, is now one of the team’s strengths. Their defense, which was expected to fold thanks to the injuries to Watt and Whitney Mercilus, remains one of the best in the NFL. Unfortunately with the Watson injury those looking to bet on Superbowl 2018 in favor of the Texans also took a hit and have now changed their bets to the Patriots to win Superbowl 52.

Right now, the Texans’ Super Bowl odds is +3300, but the team is improving every week as Watson gets more comfortable in the offense, and should be even better by the time the season comes to an end. The Texans are currently tied for the AFC South lead, but they have looked like the best team in the division in the past few weeks.

Watson currently leads the league in touchdown passes, and has already broken quite a few rookie records. If he continues developing at this rate, he will be a very scary opponent to face at the end of the season.

Houston’s path to the Super Bowl doesn’t look very difficult. After their game against the Seattle Seahawks next week, the Texans only have two really difficult teams left on their schedule, and can go 10-6 and clinch the division for a third consecutive season.

The fact that the team lost by a combined 11 points to the New England Patriots and Kansas City Chiefs should also give them some confidence if they have to play either team in the playoffs. The bottom line here is don’t sleep on this young 2018 Texans team.
