2012-2013 Regular Season: 12-4 SU | 9-7 ATS
2012-2013 Postseason: 1-1 SU | 1-1 ATS
Wins came in bundles for the Houston Texans last season. They started off 5-0 SU and 4-1 ATS in their first 5, then a loss against the Green Bay Packers in Week 6, and then a 6 game winning spree. Their 12-4 SU record secured the #3 seed in the AFC and they finished with a 9-7 ATS record.
After getting axed in the second round of the playoffs by the Patriots, the Texans look to become a force to be reckoned with and challenge Denver and New England for a playoff bye. Their key offseason acquisitions include former Baltimore Ravens Ed Reed and punter Shane Lechler. In the odds to win the AFC South division, the Texans are priced at -250 and the favorites to repeat as division winners. The team is also among the frontrunners to bag the conference title as suggested by their +450 price on the odds to win the AFC. The Texans’ 2014 Super Bowl odds are priced at +1200.
The Texans play a road game in Week 3 against the Baltimore Ravens who they beat big last season, 43-13. They have also won against the spread in their last two meetings vs. the champs. Then they return home the following week to host the Seattle Seahawks before hitting the road again for a date against last season’s NFC Champion, the San Francisco 49ers. The Texans are 3-0 SU in their last 3 games against NFC West teams and these two games will be crucial to any hopes of homefield in the playoffs.
