Betting Houston Roughnecks
The ‘Necks extended their winning streak to three games with a 34-27 win in Week 3 over the Tampa Bay Vipers. According to the best online sportsbooks, Houston entered the game as six-point road faves. Starting QB Phillip Walker went 24 of 36 for 306 yards with three TDs and one sack. Wide receiver Cam Phillips had 194 yards and three TDs on eight receptions. It’s the second straight week Walker and Phillips connect for three TDs. Walker now possesses the XFL record for most receiving yards in a single game. Running back James Butler rushed for 72 yards on seven carries. The Roughnecks were outrushed 129 to 115 yards but outgained the Vipers 417 total yards to 365.
“We do a lot of talking — the communication between me and him is awesome. I always tell him, ‘I’m going to find you.’ We talk constantly … and it helps,” Walker said of chemistry with Phillips. Apparently, “The incredible play of Walker has drawn comparisons to the NFL’s Patrick Mahomes”. Well, sure, Pat Mahomes puts his pants on one leg at a time like everybody else. Except that when his pants are on he wins Super Bowls and MVP awards. “If Walker is the Mahomes of the XFL, Phillips is the Michael Thomas.” Okay, but then, who is Don Johnson?
Betting Dallas Renegades
The Renegades won their second straight, a 24-12 win in Week 3 over the Seattle Dragons. Dallas was a 4.5-point road favorite, per the best sportsbooks for US players. Starting QB Landry Jones went 30 of 41 for 274 yards with three TDs, two picks and one sack. Tight end Donald Parham had 101 yards and two TDs on five catches. Parham has been the most consistent option in a deep Renegades receiving unit. He is averaging eight targets per game. Rushing back Cameron Artis-Payne had 80 yards on 13 carries. CA-P has accrued 100-plus yards from in two consecutive games. He has averaged 6.6 yards per carry in that period.
“I feel great. We came out with a win today. I wasn’t focusing on tackling or anything. It’s a team effort. We we’re coming down here looking for a win and we got one,” linebacker Asantay Brown said. He had 9 combined tackles.
To continue with comparisons, Parham says he can run 23 miles per hour. That is to say, he can run as fast as Tyreek Hill. Parham is 6-foot-8 and 257 pounds while Hill is 5-10, 185. Whether Parham can run that fast or not, if you see such mass gathering any sort of speed coming at you, you get out of the way or get trampled on. He also makes a hard-to-miss target for Jones. Parham could actually be NFL material (as well as Pensky material?), and that’s good news for the ‘Gades. In fact, Jones “racked his brain” trying to come up “with anybody that’s 6-8 that can move like” Parham. From his NFL playing career. And came up empty. Wait, Landry Jones played in the NFL? I kid, I kid.
Houston Roughnecks vs. Dallas Renegades XFL Pick
The Jones-Parham tandem could prove too much to handle for Houston’s defense. The ‘Necks have allowed more than 20 points in their last two games (25.5 points per game). Meanwhile, Dallas has allowed fewer than 20 points in all three games, including their Week 1 loss. I’m going to go out on a limb and advise users of the best sportsbooks for US players to fade the Roughnecks.
