It’s opening weekend for the XFL and everyone’s still got the gambling itch coming off the Super Bowl and with no other football replacement, what are you gonna bet on the rigged NBA or the crapshoot that is college basketball this year? Nope, time to take your investment to XFL
SEA vs DAL -8
Dallas has solid name power with Cardale Jones and AAF legend Rashad Ross you should make a solid duo and should put up some points. Seattle has little fire power and starting QB is a guy who started the AAF as backup to Christian Hackenberg….take the defenders here
LA Wildcats vs Houston Roughnecks -6
Former Temple owl mobile QB PJ walker beat out NFL playoff QB Connor Cook for the roughnecks and with the help of former Steelers Sammie Coates look to produce a strong offensive attack. LA is led by some star power as Qb Josh Johnson will be under center for the wildcats. With little offensive weapons josh Johnson will have to create some playmakers in a smash mouth football offense. The legend of Shawn Oakman returns to the grid iron after defeating every star athletes biggest nemesis, a false rape accusation. Expect Oakman to play with something to prove.
LA wildcats +6
TB Vipers -2.5 vs NY Guuardians
I would not expect Matt McGloin to lead the guardians very far before being replaced by backup Luis Perez who had a solid season in the AAF. Guardians will be a defensive unit led by HC Kevin Gilbride. Look for NY to try to prey on a vulnerable Aaron Murray who sucks. Despite QB Aaron Murray, three time Grey cup champion Marc Trestman has had success in non traditional football formats and should have some early success. Nick trusedell at TE will be a WEAPON for Murray and the vipers.
GAME OF THE WEEK
Dallas Defenders -9 vs STL Battlehawks
Coach Bob stoops and QB Landry Jones reunite in Dallas as XFL title favorites and should feature a high power air raid offense with a lot of NFL talent including Cameron Artis Payne. Battle hawks are already being doubted not only with the highest spread of opening week but predicted as a bottom two XFL team. A colossal OL will help lead the ground and pound gritty midwestern offense led by NFL combine all pro Christine Michael and former NFL player Matt Jones. Jordan Ta’amu could be a big sleeper but really just hand it off to C mike. Take the points here, Missouri football is hot
