The marquee game of the week is the clash of 2-0 teams between the Birmingham Stallions and the New Orleans Breakers (8 pm ET Saturday, FOX).
FOX Bet sports trader Dylan Brosman pointed out that the Breakers have outscored the Tampa Bay Bandits and the winless Philadelphia Stars by a combined score of 57-20 this season. The Stallions have outscored the New Jersey Generals and Houston Gamblers by a combined score of 61-52.
“It’s no surprise that Stallions enter the week as 3-point ‘dogs against the Breakers,” Brossman said. Birmingham’s J’Mar Smith had a great game in Week 2, throwing for 229 yards and two TDs (a 97.9 QBR) but faces a more stout defense in Week 3 against the Breakers.
“The Breakers have a solid QB of their own in Kyle Sloter (second in passing yards at 416) and should be able to put up some points against a Stallions defense that is allowing a league-worst 23.0 points per game.”
Meaning, Brossman likes the Breakers to win and cover.
PICK: Breakers (-3.5 at FOX Bet) to win by 3.5 or more points
