The NFL season kicks off in a couple of days! Today we preview Houston Texans Super Bowl betting 2021 odds. The Houston Texans finished last season with a 10-6 record, which was good enough to win the AFC South. They were blown out by the Kansas City Chiefs in the Divisional round of the playoffs after blowing a 24-0 lead.
The Texans have made some head-scratching moves in the offseason, which is why oddmakers gave them +4500 odds to win the Super Bowl.
They started the offseason by trading away one of the best receivers in the league in DeAndre Hopkins for running back David Johnson, who rushed for 1,308 total yards and seven touchdowns in his last three seasons, and a second round pick.
They also let go of Carlos Hyde, who had a career-high 1,070 rushing yards and six touchdowns.

The Texans replaced Hopkins by giving up a second-round pick for Brandin Cooks and signing Randall Cobb in free agency.
Despite their offseason moves, the Texans’ offense should still be formidable as long as Deshaun Watson is under center.
Defensively, the Texans gave up 24.1 points per game last season. They improved their defense through the draft, using three of their first five picks on defensive players. They will be hoping that J.J. Watt stays healthy for another season and bounces back from a disappointing four sack campaign.
Houston Texans Super Bowl 55 Betting Odds:
The Texans are one of those teams that are good enough to make the playoffs but won’t last past the first round. This season, the playoffs might not happen because they have to deal with the Tennessee Titans, who are expected to be better than they were last season, and the Indianapolis Colts, who added Philip Rivers in the offseason. In reality, a fourth place finish in the division won’t be a surprise, but they should be better than Jacksonville, so put them down for a third place finish this year.
