HOUSTON, TX (The Spread) - Can Gary Kubiak's Texans capitalize on their talent and finally make a push at the Super Bowl?

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Texans are 18/1 to win the 2014 Super Bowl and 13/2 to win the AFC Conference championship this season. They're also -250 favorites to win the AFC South Division and have an over/under of 10.5 for number of wins in 2013-14. Their odds to make the playoffs are -450 for and +325 against.

This offseason the Texans signed safety Ed Reed and running back Greg Jones, but were relatively quiet in free agency. The team did add Brice McCain, Tim Dobbins and Ryan Harris to fill various role positions for the new season.

In the draft the Texans finally found their complement for receiver Andre Johnson by tabbing Clemson receiver DeAndre Hopkins with their first-round pick. In the second they selected South Carolina safety D.J. Swearinger with the 25th overall pick, and in the third they took North Carolina offensive tackle Brennan Williams and LSU defensive end Sam Montgomery.

The Texans have seemingly been knocking on the door of something big for the last two seasons. Two years ago injuries at the quarterback position sunk them despite winning a postseason game versus Cincinnati, and then last year Matt Schaub and Co. were overmatched versus a Patriots team that advanced to the AFC title game. The addition of Hopkins (if he can stay healthy) is a huge boost for their offense, but Arian Foster has been battling healthy issues and questions remain about whether or not Schaub can "win the big one."

That said, defensively Houston remains top-notch thanks in large part to defensive lineman J.J. Watt, linebacker Brian Cushing and cornerback Jonathan Joseph. If Schaub can just avoid turnovers and be sharp in the fourth quarter, then this team should once again win the AFC South.

Super Bowl Odds: 18/1
