XFL Week 3 Prediction

Week 3 Preview

After going 4-0 in week 1 we split our week 2 games going 2-2. Through two weeks of play, we are starting to see that the quarterbacks may be the drawback to the XFL. In week 2 we saw are first successful 3 point conversion. While the XFL does not offer the same level of excitement as the NFL, it is exciting to have football in February. Let’s keep this ball rolling in week 3.

Tampa Bay Vipers vs Houston Roughnecks

Time: 2/22/20 @ 2:00 PM ET
Location: Raymond James Stadium, Tampa, FL
TV: ABC
Spread: Houston Roughnecks -5.5
Money Line: Tampa Bay Vipers +210 | Houston Roughnecks -250
Total: 45

Team Record ATS
Tampa Bay Vipers
0-2
0-2
Houston Roughnecks
2-0
1-1
Prediction

After two road losses to start the season Tampa Bay returns home looking for there first win. Tampa Bay has struggled to move the ball downfield finding the endzone only once during there first two games. Houston, on the other hand, has done a great job of scoring points averaging 32.5 points per game. In a league with less than average QB play, P.J.Walker has looked like one of the best in the league. I think that Houston will have no problem handling themselves on the road. My pick for this game is the Houston Roughnecks -5.5.

Best Bet: Houston Roughnecks -5.5

Seattle Dragons vs Dallas Renegades

Time: 2/22/20 @ 5:00 PM ET
Location: CenturyLink Field, Seattle, WA
TV: FOX
Spread: Dallas Renegades -4
Money Line: Seattle Dragons +160 | Dallas Renegades -180
Total: 43.5

Team Record ATS
Seattle Dragons
1-1

Dallas Renegades

Prediction

Last week Seattle had Century Link Field rocking in there home opener with an attendance of over 30,000. While it was a low scoring affair it was interesting to see Seattle push the ball in the endzone at the end of the game. One of Seattle’s best players has been Steven Johnson who leads the league in tackles. Dallas was also able to find there first win last week in Los Angeles. In Landry Jones’s return to action he threw 3 picks, but also lead the league in passing yards with 305 and a touchdown. I think that Seattle will be rocking again in this game and I am taking the Seattle Dragons +4.

Best Bet: Seattle Dragons +4

St. Louis Battlehawks vs New York Guardians

Time: 2/23/20 @ 3:00 PM ET
Location: The Dome at America’s Center, St. Louis, MO
TV:  ESPN
Spread: St. Louis Battlehawks -10
Money Line: St. Loius Batlehawks -380 | New York Guardians +310
Total: 40

Team Record ATS
St. Louis Battlehawks
1-1
2-0
New York Guardians
1-1
1-1
Prediction

Ever since the XFL announced that they would put a team in St. Louis the city has been waiting for there home opener. St. Louis has found the endzone 6 times this season, but they have failed to convert all of there conversions. St. Louis QB Jordan Ta’amu has played quite well coming in second in passing yards at 493 yards. New York has had one of the best defences this season allowing only 3 touchdowns. I think that in St. Louis’ home opener we will see a lot of points. I am taking the over in this game.

Best Bet: Over 40

Los Angeles Wildcats vs DC Defenders

Time: 2/22/20 @ 6:00 PM ET
Location: Dignity Health Sports Park, Carson, CA
TV: FS1
Spread: DC Defenders -8
Money Line: Los Angeles Wildcats +275 | DC Defenders -330
Total: 44

Team Record ATS
Los Angeles Wildcats
0-2
0-2
DC Defenders
2-0
2-0
Prediction

As a surprise to no one DC has welcomed there team with open arms, while LA doesn’t even know they have a team. Defenders QB Cardale Jones leads the league in passing yards with 511 yards and rocks the best QB ranking by Pro Football Focus. The Wildcats have had one of the worst defences in the league giving up 8 touchdowns, which is the worst in the league. 8 points is a lot of points to give up when traveling all the way across the country, but this DC team is just too good. My pick for this game is DC Defenders -8.

Best Bet: DC Defenders -8
