Dolphins Texans Betting Predictions – Texans Begin Season Of Promise Against Dolphins

Posted by Tony Bryant on 9/5/2012 6:47:46 PM

The Houston Texans entered the 2011 NFL season without a single playoff appearance to their credit. Now, a year later, the outlook is markedly different for a legitimate AFC contender.

Why Miami Will Win

When football betting gurus look at this contest, they're not going to think that Miami has a chance based on its assemblage of talent. They're going to stress the point that there's a lot of pressure on Houston in this game. The Texans made the first playoff appearance in franchise history last season, surprising the NFL community. Everyone expects Houston to win its division this season, so this will be a new experience for the Texans. They could very well step onto a field for the first time in the 2012 regular season and feel the weight of their transformed status. This game is not about Miami in any meaningful or substantial sense. The Dolphins can't win it… but a nervous Houston team sure can lose it.

Why Houston Will Win

Various online sports betting legal outlets are going to give more favorable odds to Houston in 2012 compared to past years. The Texans are the overwhelming favorite in the AFC South, but what's more important is that after winning a playoff game with a backup quarterback, T.J. Yates, this team knows not only that it can win, but under markedly adverse circumstances. The Texans are a favorite in the AFC – not as much of a favorite as the New England Patriots, but a favorite nevertheless.

Houston will have a chance to field a particularly explosive offense this season. Offensive coordinator Rick Dennison doesn't have to be brilliant with the athletes on his side of the ball.  Arian Foster, arguably the most imposing running back in the NFL at this point, just needs to get his touches. That's not complicated. Andre Johnson, a big-time wide receiver who was injured for much of last season, and quarterback Matt Schaub form one of the top pitch-and-catch combos around.

If Dennison allows his players to perform, there's no reason the Texans can't intimidate opposing defenses in the AFC. This team has a shot at the Super Bowl for the first time in franchise history. Houston will want to show the NFL what it can do. The desire to reach the next level will lend a certain degree of passion to the Texans in everything they do against the overwhelmed, outmanned and underequipped Dolphins, who are a woeful team and should not be expected to offer much resistance in this game.

Who Will Win

If there's any doubt about the winner of this game, there shouldn't be. Houston is loaded, and it is also deep, especially at the quarterback position. Miami has no offense to speak of. The Dolphins and Texans stand on the opposite sides of the track in college football. Houston should demolish Miami in the season opener.
