Team Outlook and Scouting Report

2019 SEASON PROJECTION

They won more than their current neutral win simulation percentage warrants and the Texans could take a step back next season. Their odds to win the conference are just 15/1, 6.2% and to win the Super Bowl are 30/1, 3.2%. Their simulation based chances to win the conference are 2.7% and their chances to win the Super Bowl are 1.4 percent.

REGULAR SEASON RECAP

The sum of all of their 2018 season money line implied probabilities (adjusted for the juice) projects to 9.6 wins. Their 11 actual wins was above expectation. Their strength was in road games. They went 5-3 on the road and were expected to win 4.1. They won 6 at home and were expected to win 5.6. Anyone who backed the Texans in all of their games on the money line would have earned a +166 unit profit at a 100 per game risk. Against the spread, they have lost -70 units risking 110 to win 100 (7-7 ATS). Below is a recap of all 16 regular games.

They are an above average scoring team based on points per game, despite a lower offensive TD per play rate. They are an elite scoring defense, despite a relatively low yards per play allowed rank.
