The showpiece game of the week is the 2-0 teams clash between the Birmingham Stallions and the New Orleans Breakers (8 p.m. ET Saturday, FOX).
FOX Bet sports trader Dylan Brosman pointed out that the Breakers beat the winless Tampa Bay Bandits and Philadelphia Stars by a combined score of 57-20 this season. The Stallions defeated the New Jersey Generals and Houston Gamblers by a combined score of 61-52.
“It’s no surprise the Stallions come into the week as 3-point dogs against the Breakers,” Brossman said. “Birmingham’s J’Mar Smith had a great game in Week 2, throwing for 229 yards and two touchdowns (a 97.9 QBR) but faced a tougher defense in Week 3 against the Breakers.
“The Breakers have their own solid QB in Kyle Sloter (second in passing yards at 416) and should be able to put up some points against a Stallions defense that’s allowing a league-worst 23.0 ppg .”
That means Brossman likes the Breakers to win and cover.
