Michigan Panthers UFL Week 8 Betting

Michigan Panthers UFL Betting Online

Last week the Michigan Panthers reminded UFL fans and gamblers why they are becoming one of the most rapidly improving teams in the league. Michigan won what was expected to be a tough road game at the D.C. Defenders for its third consecutive win and third win in four games. Head coach Mike Nolan has a team that is greater than the total sum of its parts. Michigan has rather mediocre metrics in most categories, with the exception of the ground game. Michigan runs the ball effectively and, equally important, stops the run just as well. The Panthers' ability to control the line of scrimmage is a great reminder of the importance of line play in pro football. This week, the Panthers have what should be a winnable game against the sinking Memphis Showboats.

The UFL standings see the Panthers solidifying their position in the USFL Conference while the Defenders remain in the middle of the pack in the XFL Conference.

Both teams wanted this win to solidify their playoff chances. A win by Michigan would help lock up their playoff spot. Meanwhile, the D.C. Defenders needed a win to keep pace with the St. Louis Battlehawks and the San Antonio Brahmas in the XFL Conference. The Defenders have turned out to be one of the most inconsistent and disappointing teams in the UFL.
