Default Texans over/under is at 8. What would you bet?

http://www.nationalfootballpost.com/...in-totals.html

The texans are currently sitting at the number "8" for the over/under on their win total this year. Everything in me wants to scream "bet the over" but on this team I can't logically bring myself to do it. Where do you guys sit?

Over.
I'd bet my life savings on it. I can't imagine that this team would win less than 8 games. They have too much talent and finally have a defensive coach.

Injuries are one thing which are completely unpredictable and can completely torpedo a season. I honestly think that if the number was 7.5 or 7 I'd easily feel comfortable betting the over, but the first 6 games look so brutal right now that I can see the team getting in a funk midway through the season (like they always seem to).

Those first 6 looked brutal when the schedule was released but I think things have changed considerably since.


Peyton's hurt they are aging and havent done much to upgrade their talent nor get all their own FA's signed. They will have a rookie LT ....

Who's QB in Miami ?

NO still looks tough as does Pittsburgh.


The Raiders are .... well , the Raiders. Who's their QB ?

The Ravens cut a bunch of guy's who were contributors and havent replaced them yet.

After the Ravens the next five games are winnable .....


I'd have to put my money on the over ....

Over. If we don get more than 2 wins over 6-10; all coaches and Smith have to go. This is a solid foundation barring injuries. If the draftees do only as expected, we are in driver's seat to start drafting depth. We should be able to start weeding out weaker players next off season. We've gotten rid of a lot this go around.

Schaub, Andre, Arian, Mario, and Jonathan are eating at a restaurant when a gas leak causes an explosion, crippling them all for the season. Texans finish 2-14.

The thing with the Colts is that we have a history of just giving up when playing them almost always once a year and most of the time twice. I hope that Peyton isn't 100% in the first game, but I can't imagine it'll be the same when we meet him again.

Miami's O-line scares me into thinking that they can do enough to neutralize an alignment shift to the 3-4. I think this is the most winnable game of the first 6.

The Raiders were actually decent last year even with Jason Campbell/Bruce Gradkowski under center. McFadden is still solid and I think they are about to sign Jared Gaither to be their LT which is probably an upgrade from Mario Henderson. This is probably the 2nd most winnable game, but they have beaten us before with even less on their team. Their defense looks like it's going to be crap, but I wouldn't totally bank on that being the case 100%.

I can't call us to beat the Ravens yet but I think we've got an even better shot at it than we did last year but as long as Suggs and Ngata are in their front 7 they do scare me.

I think my big problem is that the Texans have been very very streaky beating teams that they shouldn't on occasion but losing in bunches for no good reason at all.

EDIT: I think my biggest concern is that our schedule has a lot of run first teams and we are apparently going to rely on Mitchell/Cody manning the NT spot to keep our ILB's clean. When I think of that I have flashbacks of the 2005 season when our 3-4 was absolutely terrible at stopping the run.

^^^^^ This. I'm really looking forward to next years draft and FA when we can finally fill the few remaining holes we have on the team and really trim alot of the remaining fat on this team. We're finally building the foundation for a very good team and think that once these guys gell as a team they could be special. Looking forward 2yrs. from now the Texans could be scary good if we continue to draft like we did this year and fill a hole or 2 in FA.

As for the original question I'll say it's a push as well. Kubiak is still in charge and our pieces need to gell and prove their worth on the field. I still ain't drinking to the battle red Koolaid.

Default Re: Texans over/under is at 8. What would you bet?

I've bet the over the past 2 seasons; I'm 1-1 on that prop :-/

Big question - what does it pay? Once they set the over/under win totals, they don't change it. It stays at over/under 8 wins (or whatever the # is). What will change is the payout. If the book gets a bunch of action on the over, it will get adjusted to a lesser payout (say from -120 to -130 or -140)..

over is at like +115 and under is like -105 I think. Not much difference really.

I am taking that the last loss to the Titans at home is becasue the starters sit?

I think Pitt might be a loss other than that, I can see this schedule coming to fruition...

I'm taking the under. Think about it.

We hire a new DC... Wade Phillips. He's got serious DC creds.

We have a nice defensive centered draft... a true 3-4 5-tech, a rush OLB, a cover corner, 2 sawheet CB prospects.

We have nice FA signings..... a veteran cover corner, a veteran safety, both with ball skills.

Basically what I am saying, is we have a well equipped car with a driver that knows what to do with it.

So what's the problem?

They haven't done anything yet. They didn't win the Super Bowl last year, or the year before that, or the year before that. They haven't made it to the play-offs once in their existence. They have yet to pown their division rivals.

If they've never done it before.... chances are they aren't ever going to do it.

It's pointless to root for them, it's pointless to support them, it's pointless to believe

I've given up on hope & change.
