NFL Win Total Betting – Predicting Texans’ Wins in 2020

Houston Texans Win Total Predictions for 2020 - Betting NFL Win Totals

Back-to-back AFC South titles and consecutive seasons with double-digit victories. The Texans were thriving and appeared to be a team on the rise until they collapsed at Arrowhead Stadium in January.

Since then, it has been all downhill for this franchise, as evidenced by the Houston Texans’ win total predictions for 2020.

A rift between Bill O’Brien and DeAndre Hopkins forced Deshaun Watson’s biggest weapon out of town. The Bengals lured away D.J. Reader in free agency, and perhaps most importantly, this organization was one of the biggest losers in the 2020 NFL Draft.

It looks like Indianapolis and Jacksonville are vastly improved, and let’s not forget that the Titans made it all the way to the AFC title game a season ago. Make sure you keep that in mind before betting on the Texans.

Texans’ Win Total Over/Under

Over 7.5 Wins-110
Under 7.5 Wins-120

Don’t ask me if the Texans will be on the decline in 2020; just take a peek at the best NFL sportsbooks online. Here’s a team that won 11 games in 2018 and 10 more in 2019, yet the Houston Texans’ win total in 2020 has been installed at just 7.5 games. There’s a slight break in the juice by siding with the over.

Before you just assume that the Texans’ air attack is going to fall off the map without DeAndre Hopkins, remember that Randall Cobb signed a three-year deal worth $27 million on April 1st. Don’t forget that this team traded for Brandin Cooks, a burner who averaged 76.8 receptions and 1,149.2 receiving yards from 2015-2018. He also scored 30 touchdowns during that stretch.

Houston still has Will Fuller, and imagine if David Johnson can get back to being a top-tier pass-catching running back. If everything pans out, Deshaun Watson could win the 2020 NFL MVP.

So maybe I’m getting a bit excited and going overboard. I’ll pump the brakes on the Watson-MVP talk, but I don’t think this team will perform much differently than they did in 2019.

With that being said, I’ll happily back the over in the Texans’ win total bet.

Pick
  • Over 7.5 Wins
    -110

Texans’ Exact Win Total

5-9-185
10-14+250
0-4+375
15-16+17500

Talk about a brutal four-game stretch to open the season. Have you seen Houston’s schedule?

The Texans kick off the year in one of the best Thursday Night Football games in 2020 before hosting the Ravens and traveling to Pittsburgh. It won’t get much easier in week 4 with the Vikings coming to town, but at least this group will be battle-tested early.

The tough early schedule bodes well for Bill O’Brien as the year winds down and the Texans are fighting for a spot in the playoffs. By then, Houston will have already faced (and hopefully overcome) some adversity.

In a total vacuum, between 5-9 regular-season wins is where the Texans will likely land. Unfortunately, nothing is appetizing about the -185 price tag attached to that portion of the wager. On the flip side, being compensated at +250 if Houston goes 10-6 is something that’ll make an online bettor’s mouth water.

Pick
  • 10-14
    +250

Betting on the Texans in 2020

If you think Deshaun Watson could win the Most Valuable Player Award, now is a great time to jump in on the action. Watson was hanging out at +1800 to win the 2020 NFL MVP race in early May. Fast forward to the end of the month, and Deshaun is now lurking in the +2500 territory.

If betting on the individual NFL awards isn’t your cup of tea, betting on the Texans winning the AFC South might be more up your alley. Of course, you can always take a flier on Houston hoisting the Vince Lombardi Trophy in 2021.

It’s conceivable that Tennessee takes a step back after a great postseason run, and the Jaguars are still a work in progress. Who knows what the Colts are going to get out of an aging Philip Rivers?

Throw in the Houston Texans’ win total predictions for 2020, and the AFC South is what I believe the most “up in the air” division at this point.
