Memphis Showboats UFL Betting Online

Last week, the nightmare continued for the Memphis Showboats in a blowout loss at Arlington against a winless Renegades team. Memphis ranks at or near the bottom of all meaningful team statistics in the UFL. Quarterbacks Case Cookus and Try Williams have been ineffective but are not getting enough support from the rushing game or the defense. The Showboats are a mess, and the end of the season can’t come soon enough. This week, matters could get worse for Memphis as they travel to Michigan to face a surging Panthers team that is in UFL playoff position. Memphis is riding a six-game losing streak.

It took seven weeks, but the Arlington Renegades can finally claim their first victory of the season with a final score of 47-23 over the Memphis Showboats. With both teams anxious to shake off brutal losing records and move out of last place in their respective divisions, the 0-6 Renegades dominated the 1-5 Showboats all afternoon, confounding their defense with a one-two punch of Perez’s superb passing (27/32 for 296 yards and three touchdowns) and a strong ground game from running back De’Veon Smith.

Instead of relying solely on the superior play of quarterback Luis Perez, the Renegades put together their most complete game of the season and looked like they could do no wrong. Coach Bob Stoops utilized backup quarterback Lindsey Scott Jr. on several key plays. Throughout the afternoon, the team controlled the time of possession, capitalized on turnovers, and ran up the scoreboard.

Arlington’s offense put together an impressive 11-play opening drive that culminated with a Lindsay Scott Jr. 9-yard touchdown strike to tight end Sal Cannella. It would be his first score of the day. Cannella finished the afternoon with nine catches for 71 yards and two touchdowns.

Arlington running back De’Veon Smith knew he needed a big game with RB Dae Dae Hunter out for the remainder of the season with a torn ACL. Smith stepped up and delivered an outstanding performance with 101 yards rushing on 14 carries and two touchdowns. Early in the second period, quarterback Lindsey Scott, Jr. handed off the ball to Smith on a first and goal, who scored with a 1-yard touchdown. On the subsequent two-point conversion attempt, Smith threw the ball to Caleb Vender Esch in the end zone. The score was suddenly 22-3 in favor of Arlington.
