2018 Houston Texans NFL Betting Odds and Schedule
The Texans’ recent quarterback turmoil has hurt their odds at betting sites for NFL. First, there was the whole failed Brock Osweiler experiment. As a result of that, Osweiler was temporarily banished to the wasteland that is Cleveland. Then, just when rookie sensation Deshaun Watson was tearing through the pea patch, he was injured. Watson tore his ACL on a non-contact play during practice back in November. Therefore, his rookie season was limited to seven games and six starts. But what seven-game stretch that was. He set eight new league records. And two new franchise records.
The Texans went 3-4 before Watson’s injury. That doesn’t make it sound like he was setting the world afire. However, Houston won only one more game without him. Cue Cinderella, because you don’t know what you got till it’s gone. The good news is that Watson underwent successful surgery to repair his right knee ACL. There has been no further knee damage reported.

Texans fans who frequent betting sites for NFL must be elated. You know who else is psyched? Former Houston wide receiver Andre Johnson. Moreover, he is happy for fellow pass-catcher DeAndre Hopkins. “I definitely think [Hopkins is] arguably the best in the game,” Johnson said. “He finally has a quarterback that’s [sic] pretty steady.” Last betting season was the first Hopkins failed to start one regular season game with the Texans. However, he scored a career-best 13 TDs. Which was also a league-best receiving touchdowns. Additionally, he logged in 1378 yards on 96 receptions. Hopkins must have received the news of Watson’s recovery very well. Get it? ‘Cause he’s a wide receiver. Not good? Well, they can’t all be winners.
