D.C. Defenders UFL Week 8 Betting

DC Defenders UFL Betting Online

Last week was one of the most disappointing of the 2024 campaign for the D.C. Defenders. In what was a winnable game the Defenders suffered a costly defeat that has put their playoff prospects in serious jeopardy. This week, the Defenders are likely to have even bigger problems in a road game against the St. Louis Battlehawks. St. Louis gave the undefeated Birmingham Stallions all they could handle but were not quite good enough to finish. Now, the Battlehawks are in a first place tie with the San Antonio Brahmas in the XFL Division. Thus, the Defenders will be getting the Battlehawks' best shot on Sunday.

The D.C Defenders (3-4) lost their final game during their three-game homestand against the Michigan Panthers (5-2) on Sunday afternoon, 22-9 at Audi Field in Washington, May 12th.

The Defenders had to battle from behind from the start of the game after the Panthers quickly scored 13 points in the first quarter off of a rushing and passing touchdown before D.C. responded toward the end of the first quarter with a 70–yard bomb from quarterback Jordan Ta’Amu to speedy receiver Ty Scott.

But the touchdowns fell to a stop, and the Panthers MVP and social media star Jake Bates decided to show out. Bates, a potential NFL prospect, finished the game going three for three with a long of 51 yards, accounting for a total of 9 of the 22 points for Michigan.

A field goal from Defenders’ Matt McCrane was a little too late in the fourth quarter but wrapped up the scoring for D.C. at just nine total points, their least amount of points all year. It was also the first time this year that the Defenders used a quarterback other than Ta’Amu as they played backup quarterback Jalan McClendon.

The Defenders will gear up to switch up and hit the road when they take on the loudest stadium in the league and the St. Louis Battlehawks next Sunday, May 19th, at The Dome at America’s Center. Kick-off is set for noon ET, with the game broadcast on ABC.
