The Texans, with a mediocre 9-7 record, were the ultimate opportunists in 2016 as they took advantage of one of the most even divisions in the NFL. They are a consistently strong defensive team, one of the main reasons they won consecutive division titles. However, this team needs a franchise quarterback to lead their offense. They’ll look to draft pick Deshaun Watson to lift them, ensuring the Texans start to make some noise when it matters most, the playoffs.

How To Win At Houston Texans Betting
The Texans topped the AFC South standings in 2016 with a 9-7 record. It shows how evenly matched this division is. It also shows there is no elite team standing in the Texans’ way. The Jaguars will not compete for the title, while the Colts and Titans are definitely beatable.
If the Texans are playing at home, feel confidenc in backing them to win. The Texans lost only one home game in 2016, which was one of the best home records in the league.
Unfortunately, they were terrible on the road. The Texans were 2-6 on the road, and will look to improve their away performances. Houston will win the division if they can win another game or two in hostile environments. The Texans also dominated against fellow AFC South teams. They lost only one of six games against divisional rivals. As a general rule of thumb, look to back the Texans every time they play against AFC South teams in Houston.
Allowing 20.5 points per game, the Texans allowed the 11th fewest points in the NFL. We know that’s what makes this team tick. Back the under until Watson proves he can run a smooth offense. The Texans did not fair particularly well on the offensive side of the ball in 2016, scoring a paltry 17.4 points per outing. That was the fourth lowest total in the league. Unless this team improves significantly with the ball, don’t expect much more than second or third place in the AFC South.
However, if they manage to get their offense rolling, the Texans will win the AFC South once again.
