You Can Now Bet On Brock Osweiler

New, comments

One sports book has odds on the Texans’ quarterback’s future via two separate investment opportunities.

NFL: Houston Texans at Jacksonville Jaguars
More TDs than INTs?

With the Texans’ offense sputtering and Brock Osweiler looking more like a problem than a solution at quarterback, Bovada has put out these odds on two questions related to the Texans’ starting quarterback:

What will Brock Osweiler have more of in the 2016 regular season? (Note: Osweiler currently has 12 touchdowns and 13 interceptions.)

TD Passes: -150 (2/3)

Interceptions: +110 (11/10)

For those who aren’t familiar with the concept, this essentially means that you’d have to wager $150.00 to win $100.00 if you wanted to bet that Osweiler will throw more touchdowns than picks in 2016. Similarly, you’d have to bet $100.00 to win $110.00 if you wanted to wager that Osweiler will throw more interceptions than touchdowns. In other words, Bovada’s current projection indicates it’s likely Osweiler throws more TDs than INTs this season.

With all the talk among the fan base about whether the Texans should bench Osweiler, know that this particular sports book currently has the notion of Osweiler as Houston’s starting quarterback when the 2017 regular season begins as a considerable favorite over the alternative.

Will Brock Osweiler be the starting QB for the Texans Game 1 of the 2017 regular season?

Yes: -200 (1/2)

No: +150 (3/2)

Knowing those odds, would you bet on either proposition? If so, which way?
