Betting on the Houston Roughnecks

If you’re interested in betting on the Houston Roughnecks, you don’t need to rubberneck – just look right here for an exhaustive breakdown of the UFL team information. Whether it be the most recent point spread, a coaching move, or some roster news, you can find the latest on the Houston UFL franchise on this page.

Houston has long been a home for professional football. The NFL’s Oilers called the area home from 1960 until 1996, when they relocated to Tennessee and became the Titans. In fact, the Roughneck’s logo and color scheme pay homage to the uniforms of the Oilers, and “roughneck” is actually an old term for oil rig workers. After the Oilers left town, the Houston Texans began play as an NFL expansion franchise in 2002 and are still prospering today.

The Houston Roughnecks have come to town to establish dominance in the United Football League and bring the first pro football championship to H-Town.  Get involved with the Houston Roughnecks, and don’t miss out on any exciting 2024 XFL betting action.
