USFL Week 7 Online Betting
The Houston Gamblers are rolling after their fourth straight triumph, a 16-10 victory over the New Jersey Generals. As a result, Houston is now in a three-way tie atop the South with New Orleans and Birmingham.
The Gamblers have improved to 4-2 because they play great complimentary football. In recent weeks, their defense has raised their game to match an efficient offense and special teams.
There isn’t a lot of room for error in the South. Houston has to keep their winning streak alive in Week 7, especially as they square off with another red-hot team in divisional opponent, Memphis, who have won three consecutive games.
The Stallions took care of business in Week 6, galloping past the Michigan Panthers 27-13. Thanks mainly to another MVP-like performance by Alex McGough, who has raised his game significantly from a year ago. Birmingham would not be in the position they are without McGough.
The Stallions must work for their supper in the final four weeks of the regular season. Three of their last four games are against the South, none more significant than their upcoming Week 7 matchup against the Breakers, who took Birmingham down head-to-head a month ago.
As tight as things are within their division, Skip Holtz’s squad can’t afford to drop another game to New Orleans.
It may seem like recency bias to drop New Orleans down to #3, mainly because the Breakers have beaten the two teams ahead of them in these rankings, Houston and Birmingham. However, there’s no denying that they haven’t been the same team the last three weeks.
Their latest loss, a 16-10 defeat against the Stars, was as ugly as it gets. It was a mistake-filled game where each team took turns shooting themselves in the foot. Philly outlasted the Breakers more than actually outclassing them. Someone had to win.
New Orleans’s offense has slowed down heavily in the last three games. Their struggles continued on Sunday against Philly.
John DeFilippo has to find a way to recreate the magic his offensive attack had earlier this season.
The Breakers have an ultra-important game upcoming against Birmingham. New Orleans can sweep their season series with the Stallions and take a stronghold over the South.
The Memphis Showboats have won their third straight game after shutting out the Pittsburgh Maulers 22-0. As a result, Todd Haley’s squad looks like a legit playoff threat—a stunning turnaround after the team started the season with three consecutive losses. Suddenly Memphis is clicking on all cylinders.
No player showed up or showed out the way Showboats WR/Returner Derrick Dillon did in Week 6. The LSU speedster had a tremendous game in Memphis’s 22-0 victory, amassing 219 yards and a score. But his 109-yard touchdown off a missed field goal stole the show this past weekend.
The Showboats have a crucial game next Sunday against the Houston Gamblers. Despite their turnaround, there’s little room for error in the South.
Back in Week 3, Houston sunk Memphis’s ship with a 30-26 victory. Todd Haley’s group can exact revenge. And they need to, because in a tight Southern playoff race. Memphis can’t afford to be swept by the Gamblers and fall to 1-3 within the division.
You take the W and move on. That has to be feeling for the Philadelphia Stars, who, for the second week in a row, failed to score a touchdown but yet netted the dub. A 16-10 mistake-filled slop fest over the suddenly breakable Breakers.
Sunday’s Philly-New Orleans matchup was a horrid football game. Not what you expect in Week 6 from two teams with competent quarterbacks. Philadelphia had 144 penalty yards and turned the ball twice, yet found a way to win. As a result, the Stars now stand alone atop the North at 3-3.
To their credit, Philly’s defense and special teams have stepped up the last two weeks while their offense continues to struggle. So if the latter can return to form, maybe the Stars can end up back in a championship game, and the way things are going, they might get there by default.
Philly has a big game upcoming with the Maulers in Week 7. Bart Andrus’s crew will seek revenge against Pittsburgh, who knocked them off three weeks ago. The Stars must avoid a season sweep against the Maulers and losing control of their newly earned spot in the North.
