Houston Texans: 2009 Odds Watch

With the Houston Texans decisive win over the lowly Cincinnati Bengals Sunday by a score of 35-6, this team now has a record of 3-4, although those four losses may seem a bit deceptive.

Aside from a Week 1 loss to Pittsburgh by a score of 38-7 and a 31-12 loss to the undefeated Tennessee Titans, Houston has played consistently well ever since. They managed to be on the losing side of a Jacksonville overtime game then lost in the final minutes against the Indianapolis Colts after dominating that team throughout. Following those two gaffes, Houston ended up on the winning side of things and may be at .500 by next week.

While it is doubtful they will catch up to the division and league leading Tennessee Titans, it is conceivable that Houston might end up in second place in the AFC South.

The Houston Texans odds to win the 2009 Super Bowl were listed at +16000 prior to Sunday's game. That translates into a $16,000 payout for every $100 bet if it should happen. There is a good chance, however, that Houston could really turn things around the second half of the season. If they were to win every game from hereon out, the Texans would finish the season at 12-4. (all odds courtesy of Bookmaker.com)

Impossible? Only one of the teams remaining on the schedule - the Tennessee Titans - is considered to be playing well over .500. All other teams are hovering just above or just below that mark including Minnesota, Indianapolis, Jacksonville and Chicago. Of course, any one of these teams can accelerate beyond that point.

The Houston Texans have rebounded from their worst loss with the best single-season stretch in franchise history.

The Texans blew a 17-point, fourth-quarter lead against the Colts four weeks ago and won each game since, getting their third straight win in a 35-6 victory over the winless Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.

It's the first time Houston (3-4) has won three consecutive games in a single season in franchise history.

Gambling911.com sees the Houston Rockets as a team on the rise that could easily be at 5-2 right now.


"We're getting used to winning around here and that's what we've been looking for," Texans linebacker DeMeco Ryans said. "The morale and confidence in the locker room is up and we're just looking forward to continuing to do it."
