Nicknamed “The Problem”, The 6'1, 225 lb. Houston started his career at the University of Florida, where he tallied 100 tackles, 4.5 sacks, and three forced fumbles. He then transferred to Jackson State, where he would go on to earn several All-American honors while also being selected to play in both the NFLPA Bowl and the East-West Shrine Game.
Prop Bets for the Stanley Cup Playoffs
The Stanley Cup Playoffs are set to begin on May 2 with Game 1 of four series, two from each conference. This betting guide will offer some insight into the Metropolitan Division and the odds of each team heading into the postseason.
Carolina Hurricanes (+1000)
54-20-8, 3.38 GF/GP, 2.44 GA/GP, L10: 8-2-0
The Hurricanes became one of the hottest teams in the league this year, sitting atop the Metropolitan Division. Inspiring performances from Sebastian Aho and Teuvo Teravainen elevated the team to a higher level. New arrivals in Tony DeAngelo and Frederik Andersen paid dividends, as both players had major turnaround seasons. Carolina won their last six games of the season, despite a rocky start to April and are coming in on a great note.
The Hurricanes didn’t do a whole lot at the trade deadline, but they didn’t need to. They acquired Max Domi for some additional scoring and sandpaper and completed one minor-league deal. Considering their standing in the playoffs, it was rather peculiar to see them remain as quiet as they were, and we’ll see how that pays off.
