Are The Texans Divisional Odds Too Good To Pass Up?

  • The Houston Texans are listed at +325 odds to win the AFC South in the 2020 NFL Season.
  • The Texans have won the AFC South division title in four of the last five seasons.
  • The Houston Texans have +100 odds to record Over 7.5-wins in the regular season.

HOUSTONThe Houston Texans have been one of the more consistent teams in the NFL as they’ve only missed the playoffs once since 2015.

In that same time span, the Texans have owned the AFC South division finishing at the top of the division four of the last five years including back to back titles in the past two seasons.

The loss of DeAndre Hopkins and an improving AFC South will hurt the Texans chances of a division three-peat, but an improving Deshaun Watson could keep Houston in the driver’s seat.

Sportsbooks have the Texans listed at +325 to win the AFC South this year which are the third shortest odds in the division.

AFC South Division Betting Odds

  • Indianapolis Colts +120
  • Tennessee Titans +175
  • Houston Texans +325
  • Jacksonville Jaguars +2000

The +325 odds on Texans are intriguing because they have a team talented enough to win the division.

The Indianapolis Colts are unproven with an aging Phillip Rivers at quarterback and the Tennessee Titans  will have to prove that last year’s AFC Championship run wasn’t a fluke.

Those two teams will be the biggest roadblocks for the Texans this season, but both the Titans and Colts can be beaten on any given Sunday and aren’t one of the elite teams in the NFL.

The makeup of the AFC South could end up benefiting the Texans especially if defensive end JJ Watt can log a full season with no injuries.

While losing DeAndre Hopkins to the Arizona Cardinals in a trade is hurtful, that burn can be eased if running back David Johnson can revive his career with the Texans.

This was a Texans team that went 10-6 and lost to the eventual Super Bowl Champion Kansas City Chiefs in the Divisional Round of the playoffs just a season ago.

With that in mind, bettors shouldn’t pass up on the +325 odds on the Texans currently because those odds are likely to only get shorter as Houston doesn’t have a tough schedule this season.

However, since the first two games on the Houston Texans schedule are against the Kansas City Chiefs and the Baltimore Ravens, those shopping lines could wait until after those two games to catch the Texans AFC South odds at their most profitable point.

The Texans are a team that has won the AFC South in back to back seasons and still has Deshaun Watson under center which should be able to keep this team afloat in a weak AFC.

Betting on them to win the division at +325 odds at the end of the 2020 NFL regular season will likely look like one of the best values on the odds board.
