NFL betting has seen Houston go 8-8 straight up the past 2 years and many believe that they are ready for the next step up against the NFL odds for 2009. Head coach Gary Kubiak has been a major reason for Houston’s NFL betting success.
Kubiak was the Denver Broncos’ offensive coordinator when they won back-to-back Super Bowl titles and his leadership has made the Texans a potential sleeper in 2009 against the NFL odds. Houston is in good position to make the playoffs for the first time in their franchise history.
Kubiak’s offensive expertise has been translated into solid NFL betting results as the Texans ranked 3rd overall in the league last year for offensive production. Their defense, on the other hand, ranked only 22nd and was likely the reason that they missed the NFL betting post season.
Quarterback Matt Schaub is a major beneficiary of Kubiak’s offensive tutelage. Schaub posted a nice 92.7 quarterback rating and completed 66.1% of his passes during the 2008 NFL betting season.
Steve Slaton was yet another key element to Houston’s NFL betting attack as the running back rushed for 1282 yards and a strong 4.8 yards per carry average with 9 touchdowns. Slaton’s running kept the heat off of Schaub and allowed him the luxury of keeping defenses honest.
Andre Johnson emerged as a premier wide receiver for the Texans as he caught a staggering 115 passes for 1575 yards and 8 touchdowns during the 2008 NFL betting campaign.
Jacoby Jones was one of the top return men in all of NFL betting last year as he averaged 12.1 yards per punt return with 2 touchdowns to give Houston yet another strong resource for their attack. If Kubiak can fine tune the defense the Texans have more than enough weapons to be a serious contender for the post season in 2009.
