Last week, we learned how the Houston Texans' 2016 schedule was laid out. It was only a matter of time before the professionals in Las Vegas examined each game and installed a line. That time? It's here.
This article details how CG Technology has put out early lines for every NFL regular season game through Week 16 in 2016. While the point spreads are sure to change as we inch closer to the season, it's still interesting to see how Vegas views your Houston Texans leading up to the 2016 NFL Draft.
In that respect, the Texans are currently favored to win seven (7) games this year (with the caveat that CG Technology has not yet fixed a line for any game in Week 17, when the Texans would presumably be favored to beat the Titans in Tennessee). It should also be noted that one of the games--Week Two against the Chiefs--is a pick 'em, which means that neither the Texans or the Chiefs are favored.
Many of you have already gone on record with your preliminary predictions about the Texans' record in 2016. Does Vegas' assessment affect your outlook at all?
