More than any other of the four major betting sports in North America, the National Football League is recognized for its parity with teams rising and falling every year in the standings. Take the New Orleans Saints of a year ago as a prime example. The Saints finished the 2008-09 season 8-8, failed to make the postseason for a second straight year, and heading in to 2009-10 the franchise didn’t seem to have made enough significant upgrades to expect a major improvement. That was far from the case however, as New Orleans set the NFC record as the team that started the season with the longest undefeated streak at 13-0, clinched the AFC South division crown, and went on the defeat the Indianapolis Colts in Super Bowl XLIV. With that in mind, we take a look at five sleeper teams to keep an eye on heading in to 2010-11.

Houston Texans

The Texans have improved every betting on NFL season since winning just two games in 2005, finally getting over the mediocrity hump to get to nine wins a year ago after putting up consecutive 8-8 seasons in 2007 and 2008. With stars at each of the skill positions on offense, and a line finally capable of keeping quarterback Matt Schaub off of his behind, the Houston offense will be able to at least maintain it’s 2009-10 level after finishing last year ranked fourth in the NFL. With the defense making steady improvement, this may finally be the year the Texans reach the postseason party.


Oakland Raiders

Crack whatever joke comes to mind first when someone wonders aloud whether the Raiders will be a contender in 2010-11, but beware a roster predicated on speed and toughness in a division facing a severe lack of depth in regards to talent heading in to this NFL betting season. Oakland came close to scoring a victory over the division dominating Chargers last season, and that was with JaMarcus Russell at quarterback. If new starter Jason Campbell and first round pick linebacker Rolando McClain can jumpstart the squad on both sides of the ball, this team will be contending for a playoff spot.


Washington Redskins

With Donovan McNabb under center, a rebuilt offensive line, and a new coaching staff ready to build a dynasty, the Redskins could be the most underrated team heading in to 2010-11. Despite a tough schedule in a crowded NFC East, Washington’s talent and depth are good enough that they should remain in playoff contention until late in the season.


Green Bay Packers

The Packers surprised many in 2009-10, and nearly pulled off a win over the Arizona Cardinals in the playoffs that would have definitely put them on the map. With Brett Favre potentially out of the mix for the Vikings, this may just be the year of the cheese heads.


Detroit Lions

The Lions could not be worse than they were in 2009-10, when they finished with just two wins. An infusion of talent through both free agency and the NCAA college football betting draft could propel Detroit over the six-win mark if they can stay healthy.
