Stallions vs. Maulers picks and predictions
Stallions 31, Maulers 17
PASS on the money line. The Stallions are undefeated and have the league’s top-scoring offense. The Maulers have scored the fewest points in the league and have scored 3 or fewer points twice this season.
This is the best team against arguably the worst team in the USFL. There isn’t enough money to be won in a money line bet backing the Stallions. Consider it if you are putting together a parlay bet, but PASS on a single ML bet.
Against the spread
The Stallions have won only 1 game by more than 12 points. It was last week’s 33-17 win over the 1-win Panthers.
Two of the Maulers’ 5 losses have been by more than 12 points.
Entering Week 7, the Stallions had scored the most points and allowed the fewest.
Take the STALLIONS -12.5 (-110).
Four of the Stallions’ 6 games this season have had totals of more than 42 points, including last week’s win over the Michigan Panthers.
One of the Maulers’ 6 games this season has finished with a higher total than Sunday’s projected total.
Take OVER 42.5 (-108).
