Betting Houston Roughnecks
The ‘Necks improved to 5-0 with a 32-23 win over the Seattle Dragons in Week 5. As 12.5-point home chalk, according to the best online sportsbooks. Starting QB Phillip Walker went 27 of 38 for 351 yards with three TDs, two picks, and two sacks. Wide receiver Cam Phillips had 122 yards and two TDs on 10 receptions. Sam Mobley, subbing for Sammie Coates, caught six passes for 95 yards. Running backs Andre Williams and James Butler combined for 106 rushing yards and two TDs on 22 carries.
Houston held Seattle to 114 passing yards and sacked the opposing QB four times. The Roughnecks outgained the Dragons by more than 200 total yards. Houston went 8 of 11 (73%) on third downs and were perfect in the red zone (4 of 4).
The Necks might have had a little help from the officials, though. “Saturday’s Seattle Dragons-Houston Roughnecks game should not have ended as it did,” the XFL said in a statement. “Replays showed clearly that the knee of Houston quarterback P.J. Walker touched the field, rendering him “down” and the fourth-down play officially completed, with approximately two seconds remaining on the clock – effectively turning the ball over to Seattle on downs. With a nine-point differential in the score, Seattle was denied an opportunity to tie the game. The XFL sincerely regrets this error. In addition, Wes Booker, who served as Officiating Supervisor for Saturday’s game, has been reassigned.”
“That’s the way the football game is. There is going to be some times where you’re gonna have to fight through the adversity and make some plays, which we did. We just gotta keep fighting, playing together and playing until the last play,” Roughnecks head coach June Jones said.
Betting New York Guardians
The Guardians got their second straight win with a 30-12 upset of the Dallas Renegades in Week 5. As eight-point road dogs, per the best offshore gambling sites. Starting QB Luis Perez went 16 of 30 for 229 yards with one TD and one pick.
Wide receiver Colby Pearson had 95 yards and one TD on five catches. NY rushed for 144 yards and one TD on 32 carries. The Guardians also held Dallas to just 56 yards on the ground. NY additionally forced three TOs. Including 33-yard interception return by defensive end Ryan Mueller. Fellow DE Cavon Walker had two sacks, four QB hits, two tackles for a loss, and five combined wrap-ups.
“We’re obviously very excited about the win. I thought there were a lot of good things to build on. We’re a physical football team, and we look to establish that in every aspect,” Guardians head coach Kevin Gilbride said.
Houston Roughnecks vs. New York Guardians XFL Pick
Whether by hook or by crook, Houston seems to be unstoppable. The Necks rallied from a 14-point deficit in the second quarter. And recovered from three TOs. Finally, a bad call gave them that extra push over the cliff. Now, they might have stolen the SU win, but the ATS victory went to the Dragons.
Will that be the case again versus the Guardians? That’s what users of the best offshore gambling sites want to know. I’d say it depends on whether NY’s defense shows up. They have held opponents to fewer than 10 points in each of their three winning efforts. Moreover, the Guardians are 2-0 at home. All things considered, fade the Roughnecks.
