Texans Super Bowl Odds Leave Houston as Surprisingly Heavy Dark Horse Ahead of AFC Wild Card Game Against Bills
The Houston Texans have another shot at breaking through in the postseason under head coach Bill O'Brien with a home AFC Wild Card Game against the Buffalo Bills.
Texans Odds to the Win Super Bowl
The Texans currently have +3500 odds to win the Super Bowl and +2000 odds to win the AFC Championship, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. Even if Watson wins his first NFL playoff game this Saturday, the Texans would still likely have quite the challenge ahead of them.
If the No. 3 New England Patriots defeat the No. 6 Tennessee Titans as 5-point home favorites in Foxboro on Saturday night, a win over Buffalo would then send the Texans on the road to face the No. 1 seed and overall favorite Baltimore Ravens in the AFC Divisional Round.
Football Outsiders give the Texans an infinitesimal 0.2 percent shot to win the Super Bowl, which is, relatively speaking, much lower than the 2.8 percent implied probability reflected by their +3500 odds to win it all on to FanDuel Sportsbook.
In fact, the Texans are actually the biggest dark horse among all 12 NFL playoff teams, per Football Outsiders, surprisingly trailing the Bills' shot to win the Super Bowl as 2.5-point favorites over Buffalo in Saturday's AFC Wild Card matchup in Houston.
Yet, as far as the oddsmakers are concerned, the Texans (+3500) enter Saturday's playoff matchup with much better odds to win Super Bowl LIV than the visiting Bills (+5000), according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
