Houston Texans betting odds this season

 With Houston Texans releasing David Carr, will the new trade Matt Schaub be able to carry the team to playoffs this NFL season?

Houston Texans betting odds this season The Houston Texans finally ran out of patience with David Carr and did something they have never done before - changed the quarterback during offseason. As soon as they finalized the trade of the Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Schaub, the starting quarterback Carr was released from the team. But no one knows if the swap would work, as Schaub has only two NFL starts, although each time he has played, the young QB exhibited great skill and instincts. Most likely Matt Schaub will find the most serious support with Andre Johnson. Jerome Mathis or Kevin Walters would take care of the other side of the field.

 Defensively, the Houston Texans have less to worry about compared to the offense, especially after landing first-round pick DT Amobi Okoye. And after the head coach Gary Kubiak replaced David Carr, the defense should get a little less playtime and improve the stats. Many experts believe that this NFL season will be all bout improvements of the Houston Texans crew. Large point spread could become a norm with the Texans after winning the preseason game against the Cardinals 33-20, and scored quite a few games last season over 35 points total. Against the Cardinals, Sage Rosenfels was 8-for-13 for 125 yards and a touchdown, while Owen Daniels had three catches for 35 yards for the Texans.

 If coach Kubiak revives the team, the bettors are promised an enormous payout. The betting odds on the Houston Texans currently land them in the underdog group. The online sportsbook Bookmaker (new window) has listed the Texans with the following betting lines:

Houston Texans odds to win the AFC: +4500
