DENVER – Russell Wilson will lead the Denver Broncos in an attempt to get a first win of the season against the Houston Texans.

Wilson’s props have remained steady after he put up 340 yards against the Seattle Seahawks with no interceptions on Monday, but his team fell short, losing 16-17.

Russell Wilson Pass Attempts Odds

  • Over 30.5 -130
  • Under 30.5 +100

In the game against Houston, Wilson is favored to pass more than 30 times, which he did against Seattle, attempting 42 passes.

In 2022, Wilson put up 400 pass attempts in 14 games played, for an average of about 28 pass attempts per game.

NFL Network’s James Palmer reported that the Broncos’ offense would be built to “Let Russ Cook”, but there are doubts after first-year coach Nathaniel Hackett kicked a 64-yard field goal rather than allowing his QB to try to gain five yards.

Russell Wilson Interceptions Odds

  • Over 0.5 +175
  • Under 0.5 -205

Wilson is famously careful with the football, to the point that he rarely takes dangerous passes over the middle, instead opting to pass down the sidelines more than nearly any other QB in the NFL.

He has never had an INT% over 2.5%, which was his mark in his rookie year, and he’s only gone over 2% INT rate one time in the last five years.

Wilson has never thrown more than 13 interceptions, and in three of the last four years, he has thrown single digit interception totals for the whole season.

There’s a very good reason why the Under on this prop is as favored as it is at the online sportsbooks it’s just never a good idea to bet on a Russell Wilson INT.

Russell Wilson Passing TDs Odds

  • Over 1.5 -115
  • Under 1.5 -105

By the same token, Wilson’s care with the football has meant that he’s not exactly a touchdown machine.

Outside of a 2020 campaign that saw him put up 40 touchdowns and a 7.2% touchdown percentage, Wilson has never passed for 40+ touchdowns in a season.

The Denver Broncos face off against the Houston Texans on Sunday, with kickoff scheduled for 4:25 p.m. ET.
