Houston Texans Drawing Good Money In Vegas Books

Houston TexansBack not long ago it was the Indianapolis Colts, with Peyton Manning at the helm, topping the AFC South with the lowly Houston Texans trying to climb out of the cellar.  The upcoming NFL season is most likely to see the Texans on the rise if the oddsmakers are making the correct calls.

Houston is a strong, tough team in the image of their great defensive end J.J. Watt.  They play rough and tumble football and take on all comers head-on.
