How to bet on the Houston Texans
The moneyline is the simplest of bets, decided by the straight-up winner and loser of each game. Consider the following example:
- Vikings -105
- Texans +110
The Texans are considered slight underdogs in this matchup (indicated by +110), paying out $210 total for a $100 bet ($110 in winnings). The Vikings are the favorites in this matchup, requiring a $105 bet to win $100 (plus the initial bet back). How much either team wins or loses by does not matter in moneyline betting, the payout remains the same.
Betting on the point spread is determinant on how many points a team wins or loses by. Take the following example:
- Texans -4.5 (-110)
- Jaguars +4.5 (-110)
In this example, Houston is favored by 4.5 points, indicated by “-4.5.” If the Texans win the game 27-20, the Texans (-4.5) win the bet and would have a total payout of $19.09 on a $10 bet ($9.09 in profit). If the Jaguars keep the game within five and lose 34-30, the Jaguars (+4.5) would win, and the payout would be the same as listed above.
Point total (over/under)
The point total refers to the over/under line set by books. This number projects the total number of points scored in a game and, like prop betting, is bet whether one thinks the score will go over or under the set point total. For example, the Texans matchup with the Cleveland Browns had a projected point total of 53.5 points. The Texans lost that game 10-7, which resulted in just 17 total points. Those who bet the under on the over/under would have cashed out.
Houston had some serious defensive issues in 2020, ranking 27th in the NFL in points allowed per game (29). Coupled with an explosive offense led by Deshaun Watson, the Texans frequently saw lofty projected point totals. Over/unders set between 58 and 62 points weren’t uncommon for Houston this past season. Should Watson leave for another team, their projected point totals could dip in 2021.
In-play and live betting
Sometimes, the most thrilling and rewarding bets are bets made while games are being played. These are referred to as live bets or in-play bets. Odds are ever-changing during games, which would prove to be fruitful for sharp and prepared bettors. For example, if the Texans (-225) were heavily favored against the Bengals (+190) before kickoff, a payout on a $10 bet on the Texans to win would win just $4.44.
However, say the Texans fell to a big 17-3 deficit in the first half despite controlling the overall game (due to a costly turnover or special teams gaffe). Odds may swing in favor of the Bengals, who may be a -110 favorite at halftime. Taking the Texans to come back and win the game could present plus-odds (say, +130). Should a bettor take Houston (+130) at halftime and the Texans pull off the comeback, winners would win $13 instead of $4.44 (plus the initial $10 bet).
This could also be an effective way to “hedge” your bet; say a bettor took the Bengals (+190) in that game, but Houston jumps out to a 13-0 first quarter lead and is controlling the overall feel of the game, bettors could hedge by throwing some money down on Houston (-270) to return some of the inevitably-lost bet.
Parlays and teasers
You can always string bets together in the form of parlays or teasers. Usually during busy Sundays, bettors can parlay several teams to win or cover against the spread and if all bets are successful, the payouts are multiplied. Teasers function similarly, except they allow bettors to move each point spread to a more favorable line in exchange for diminished odds.
