Point spreads are courtesy of The VSiN Network and are accurate at the time of writing.
Vegas Vipers @ Houston Roughnecks(-6) The Vegas Vipers are 2-6 this season for a good reason, poor offence and poor defence has only led to wins over the Brahmas and the hapless Guardians. Houston bounced back with a close 19-17 victory last week, to take the lead in the South Division standings. The oddsmakers have the Roughnecks as 6 point favourites, but @TheBrysh calls for a big 29-19 win for Houston.
Orlando Guardians @ San Antonio Brahmas(-1) @TheBrysh identifies this matchup as the most likely to disappoint the fans, with two unimpressive teams battling for last place. The only thing worse than the Guardians defence, is the Brahmas offence, a formula for a sleep inducing performance of errors and poor judgement. Orlando was blessed by some Greater Power when they beat the Defenders, the will not win another game, leaving the Brahmas with an easy victory 22-14.
Arlington Renegades @ DC Defenders(-8) The 7-1 Defenders have clinched a playoff spot, but because of their embarrassing loss to the Guardians, have NOT clinched first place. Arlington squeaked out a win last week, but confirmed that they cannot put offensive points on the board. @TheBrysh says that DC should have no problem blowing out the Renegades, and clinching 1st in the North Division, with a decisive win 29-19.
Seattle Sea Dragons @ St Louis Battlehawks(-2) This is the most consequential matchup of the week, Seattle and St. Louis are in a dead heat race for the remaining playoff spot in the North Division. These teams met up in Week 2, where the Battlehawks took a close victory 20-18 over the home team Sea Dragons. This week the ‘Hawks have the home field advantage , along with 30,000 rabid fans backing them up. @TheBrysh calls for a big Battlehawks win 31-23, to take St. Louis one step closer to possibly challenging DC for 1st in the North Division.
