The 2020 Super Bowl is still quite aways, however OTA’s have begun. This means Houston Texans Super Bowl odds are here.
The Houston Texans finished with an 11-5 record last season, which was good enough to win the AFC South. However, they crashed out of the playoffs in the Wildcard round, losing to the rival Indianapolis Colts. With a full season under quarterback Deshaun Watson’s belt, the Texans are hoping to make a deep playoff run this season. Their odds to win the Super Bowl are +2500.
The Texans had the 10th best offense in the league last season despite several injuries to key players, especially their receiving corps. This season the offense is expected to be better with the return of players like Will Fuller V, Keke Coutee and D’Onta Foreman returning from their injuries.
Watson, who threw for 4,165 yards and 26 touchdowns, while completing 68 percent of his passes, will continue to cause a lot of problems for defenses. However, he will need to do a better job of getting rid of the ball after leading the league with 62 sacks.
Betting on the Houston Texans for Super Bowl 2020
The Texans tried to improve their offensive line in free agency, but they were unable to land Trent Brown and Rodger Saffold, who were their main targets. They decided to improve their offensive line through the draft and selected Tytus Howard and Max Scharping in the first and second round of the draft.
On defense, the team lost Tyrann Mathieu and Kareem Jackson, who left in free agency. Instead of paying too much for either player, the team decided to sign former Jacksonville Jaguars safety Tashaun Gipson and former Denver Broncos cornerback Bradley Roby to fill the roles Mathieu and Jackson played last season.
The Texans also brought in a blocking tight end in Darren Fells and got some insurance at the backup quarterback position by signing AJ McCarron.
With most of the team that won the AFC South title last year coming back, the Texans might be able to make their first Super Bowl appearance this season.
