2021 Houston Cougars Football Betting Predictions

June 21, 2021

2021 Houston Cougars Betting Odds, Predictions, Preview

After a disappointing 3-5 season the Cougars will look to rebound and finally meet the expectations placed on them. Despite a solid start with conference wins over Tulane and Navy they were dismantled by conference heavyweights Cincinnati and UCF. Thankfully this season the scheduling gods looked kindly upon the Cougars who don’t have to face Cincinnati or UCF this year. This is one of the only situations I’ve seen where the consensus number three team in a division avoids one and two, it’s now whether they can take advantage or not.

My preseason best bet is Houston over eight wins at -134. While there definitely is a lot of push potential Houston is in a great position to improve. This comes down to the strength of schedule, if the Cougars can beat middle-of-the-road AAC teams then this is very possible.

Preseason Best Bet: Over 8 Wins -134

Houston Odds to win 2021 AAC Championship

Yes +1200

While I do expect Houston to have somewhat of a drastic turnaround I’m not interested in them winning the AAC at this number. One of the big benefits of avoiding tough conference and non-conference opponents is you can definitely outperform your win total, unfortunately, those kinds of teams are not prepared for the tough gritty matchups necessary to win championships. Overall I like the Cougar’s chances to turn things around this is just one step too far for me.

2021 AAC Betting Odds

Houston Odds to Win 2021-22 College Football Playoff

Yes +50000

Sadly this portion of the article is gonna fairly repetitive for the AAC, the committee is just not interested in letting these small conference teams in the playoffs. Even if Houston manages to rally and have an incredible undefeated season their chances are still really low with the lack of ranked opponents. I’m excited to see Houston attempt an AAC conference push but I have no interest in betting them for the playoffs.
