The guys (@GamblingPodcast) give out all their best bets in their XFL week 9 picks podcast. They’re joined by Colby Dant (@TheColbyD) from The XFL Gambling Podcast and hit on all their XFL best bets and Dean Blandino’s stand up comedy career.
The XFL now has a viewership rival with the USFL starting this weekend, make sure to check out the USFL picks episode from this week! Last week the XFL got its first overtime game between Vegas and St. Louis, with the Battlehawks coming out on top off a big comeback. There were some questionable calls in this game, but it made the game exciting. As the playoffs come up, it is important to remember that the second-place team in each division will be playing the first place team in their same division in the first round.
(14:24) Houston Roughnecks (-6.5) vs Vegas Vipers
Houston hasn’t been the most impressive as of late especially in turnover department, but Vegas also commits their own share of turnovers. The Roughnecks also have already clinched a playoff spot and could be taking their foot off the gas in this one and look past Vegas.
(20:15) San Antonio Brahmas (-1.5) vs Orlando Guardians
The Brahmas struggle to score while Orlando still does a good job of generating yardage, making this line not make too much sense. San Antonio has a bad offensive line, but they do still have something to play for playoff wise. Paxton Lynch could also be in a revenge game against his former Guardians team.
(29:23) D.C. Defenders (-8.5) vs Arlington Renegades
Arlington has massive motivation as they can clinch a playoff spot with a win game here. D.C. could be fighting for home field advantage but all in all they are somewhat chilling. Their defense also has been spotty in the past two weeks as they have given up 30+ points both weeks. For the contrast of motivation, 8.5 points is way too much for the Defenders to cover.
(35:28) St. Louis Battlehawks (-1) vs Seattle Sea Dragons
Seattle is in a must-win game to survive in the playoff picture and could be without their leader AJ McCarron. The Battlehawks just need to win one of the next two games but they do need to keep a watchful eye on their point differential. In order for next week to be really exciting in the XFL, Seattle must win this week, something to definitely note when making bets.
