XFL Week 8 Parlay Picks

It was an extremely disappointing showing for last week’s XFL parlay picks after kicking Week 7 off with a ticket cash on Seattle. The Sea Dragons did what was needed to win their fifth straight and cover the closing XFL odds in the process. Unfortunately, we failed to cash any of our remaining investments. San Antonio got rolled up and smoked in Vegas with the opportunity to gain ground in the XFL South lost in the process. D.C. held a 10-point lead at the start of the second quarter, but the gritty Guardians battled all the way back to win their first game and hand the Defenders their first loss. We closed the week out with a loss on Houston but I never would’ve made the recommendation to back the Roughnecks had I known Brandon Silvers was going to be held out and Cole McDonald would be getting his first start. A lack of transparency by the league and team cost us there. The 1-3 ATS showing moves us to a sickening 13-15 ATS for the season.

Let’s see if we can’t make up for the poor showing by cashing our first 4-teamer in Week 8 with the four teams I expect to qualify for the playoffs when it’s all said and done!

St. Louis Battlehawks -7.5

The St. Louis Battlehawks have taken from the bankroll each of the last three weeks. I backed them at home in Week 5 in their revenge bout with D.C. They lost 28-20 and gave up a gazillion rushing yards to Abram Smith. Then I faded them in the first showdown with the Vipers in Vegas a few weeks back. They dominated that matchup from beginning to end. Then last week, I expected the Roughnecks to hold serve and end their losing streak playing back home. That premise was held with Silvers under center. He wasn’t which allowed A.J. McCarron and Co. to close their road schedule out an impressive 4-1 SU and ATS. XFL bettors have jumped at the opportunity to ride the Battlehawks once again with the point spread crossing the key number up to -7.5. I have to agree and still don’t think it’s enough points to back Jalan McClendon in his first road start for a Vipers outfit that’s 0-4 SU against the XFL elite and lost those games by an average of 13.3 points per. St. Louis’ passing attack worked with relative ease versus Vegas’ No. 6 ranked pass defense which leads me to believe McCarron is in line for another banner showing – Ka-Kaw!

Arlington Renegades -1

I’ll turn the Renegades into a favorite at a plus-money return and look for Bob Stoops’ squad to get off the schneid against an Orlando team that finally just tasted the thrill of victory for the very first time. While I’ve been banging the drum for the Guardians over the last month and they treated my bottom line kindly – save for last week – this one ultimately comes down to the team that owns the better overall defense and the Renegades got that in spades heading into this matchup. While Quinten Dormady has taken the league by storm in recent weeks, he’s gotten the benefit of running up against the porous pass defenses of Vegas (No. 6) and D.C. (No. 8) two of the last three weeks. Arlington clocks in at No. 2 in allowing just over 177 yards per game. The Renegades have also logged the second most interceptions in the XFL (8) and taken two back to the house. On top of all that, the Arlington offense should run more efficiently now with Luis Perez set to make his first start. I expect a huge effort from the defense to allow Arlington to sweep the season rivalry and hold onto the No. 2 seed in the XFL South.

Houston Roughnecks -5

I’ve given up on giving the Brahmas the benefit of the doubt. I don’t care how good the defense is! It simply just isn’t in the cards for the team this season with the injury bug relentlessly taking bites out of the roster seemingly every passing game. With Jack Coan on IR and Reid Stinnett already lost for the season, Kurt Benkert succumbed to broken ribs in last week’s ugly loss to the Vipers. That means Jawon Pass is the only healthy body in the QB room heading into this rematch with the Roughnecks, and I want none of him running up against a pissed off Houston defense that was forced to eat a large helping of humble pie against the Battlehawks last week. While the Roughnecks might not be the cream of the XFL crop like many thought through the first month of the XFL betting season, Wade Phillips’ squad is still one of the best the league has to offer and I fully expect them to lay the hammer down in this get-right spot against an undermanned divisional opponent.

Seattle Sea Dragons -1

The game of the week takes us to the Emerald City where the Sea Dragons will attempt to win a sixth straight game and in the process put itself in a position to qualify for one of only two allotted playoff spots in the XFL North. I think they get it done! If we rewind all the way back to Week 1, Seattle had every opportunity to get out of Audi Field with the dub. They dominated the box score outgaining D.C. 331-177 and held a 10+ minute advantage in the time of possession battle. On top of that, it’s now No. 5 ranked rush defense held the Defenders potent ground attack to only 84 yards and a paltry 2.5 yard per carry average. Not many teams have been able to figure out the riddle that’s been the D.C. ground assault, but DC Ron Zook figured it out right from the outset. The main thing that cost the Sea Dragons was turnovers with DB Michael Joseph’s pick-six in the third quarter getting D.C. back in the game. To make matters even worse, QB Ben DiNucci coughed the pigskin up in the closing seconds with Seattle on D.C.’s goal line. With the Defenders trotting the league’s absolute worst pass defense onto the field that’s been ripped for over 248 yards per game, this is the ultimate flex spot for DiNooch and I expect him to take full advantage of it.
