Here are some numbers for far for the XFL games.
4-4 Home Teams vs Spread
4-4 Favorites vs Spread
The Unders are 6-2, mainly because teams seem to start very slow in the first quarter. These coaches are playing conservatively until they get a feel for how the game is going and sometimes their loose play calling doesn’t get going until midway through the second quarter. A perfect example is last weeks game between Dallas and Los Angeles. The Wildcats kicked a last second field goal before halftime to make it 3-3. In the second half the offenses finally got going and scored a total of 37 points.
Week 3 Lines and picks including final score predictions.
Houston Roughnecks -6 @ Tampa Bay Vipers ( Total is 47)
As of right now Houston possesses the league’s MVP in quarterback PJ Walker who has 7 touchdowns. Walker has seven and the Vipers have zero offensive Td’s through two games. Wide receiver Cam Phillips had three of those touchdowns last week versus St Louis. The Vipers have also killed themselves with stupid penalties and turnovers. This is Tampa Bay’s home opener and I expect them to play tough, but it would not be smart to go against the best player in the league.
27 Houston Roughnecks
14 Tampa Bay Vipers
Dallas Renegades -4.5 @ Seattle Dragons ( Total is 44)
Seattle was fortunate to win as the Vipers gave them their first win. It took a half for Renegades QB Landry Jones to get rolling and expect him to do much better this week against Seattle’s shaky secondary.
27 Dallas Renegades
14 Seattle Dragons
New York Guardians @ St. Louis Battlehawks -9.5 ( Total is 41)
New York has issues on the offensive side of the ball, meanwhile Battlehawks QB Jordan Ta’amu is completing 78% of his passes and can run as well going for 6.4 yards a rush. St Louis safety Will Hill will be licking his chops with some of those awful passes Guardians QB Matt McGloin made last week versus the Defenders. The Battlehawks win this one in a blowout.
12 New York Guardians
27 St Louis Battlehawks
DC Defenders -8 @ Los Angeles Wildcats ( Total is 44)
This is another situation like the Houston game where you have to play the better QB until they prove you wrong. Defenders QB Cardale Jones has been the second best QB and second best player in the league behind Walker of Houston. The Defenders defense pitched a shutout last week versus New York and are playing a winless Wildcats squad. Los Angeles will score in this one but just not enough to keep up with the Defenders.
33 DC Defenders
22 Los Angeles Wildcats
