Betting Los Angeles WildCats
The Cats beat the Tampa Bay Vipers 41-34 in Week 5 as two-point home faves, per the best online sportsbooks. Starting QB Josh Johnson went 20 of 36 (56%) for 288 yards with four TDs and one pick. He also rushed for 19 yards on seven carries. LA was held to 57 yards on the ground.
Wide receiver Jordan Smallwood had 86 yards on four receptions. Saeed Blacknall had a 49-yard reception and scored a crucial second-half TD. In addition to Johnson’s interception, the Cats lost three fumbles. They also lost 67 yards as a result of penalties.
On the plus side, LA was perfect in the red zone and on goal to go. The Wildcats (2-3) rallied from an early 17-0 deficit. Defensive tackle Boogie Roberts scored a decisive TD, which was set up by a Cedric Reed strip-sack. The DE also had six tackles (three solo) and another QB hit. Safety Ahmad Dixon had 10 tackles (seven solo).
“We got down … nobody panicked. Everybody learned their lesson from last week. We finished. I’m so proud of this team,” Wildcats head coach Winston Moss said.
Betting Seattle Dragons
The Dragons dropped to 1-4 with a Week 5 23-32 loss to Houston as 12.5-point road dogs, according to betting sites. Starting QB BJ Daniels went 14 of 22 (64%) for 114 yards and was sacked four times. He scored two rushing TDs. Wide receiver Austin Proehl had 56 yards on three catches. Seattle rushed for 100 yards and three TDs on 32 carries.
The Dragons were outgained by more than twice their 201 total yards. Seattle was perfect in the red zone (3 of 3) but posted a 47% effectiveness on third downs. The Dragons had forced three TOs to Houston’s zero. However, Daniels lost a fumble late in the fourth quarter that was recovered by Roughnecks linebacker DeMarquis Gates. Safety Jordan Martin had eight tackles (seven solo) and one interception.
Seattle was screwed out of a chance to tie the game. “Saturday’s Seattle Dragons-Houston Roughnecks game should not have ended as it did,” the league 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.”
The Dragons had arguably their best showing of the season but still came up short. Notwithstanding that, the roster is keeping a stiff upper lip. “We just keep building,” Martin said. “We can’t fold. Times like this are where good teams rise. As you can see, all of our games have been close. We’re not getting blown out of the stadium. All of our games are one 1 ½ possessions. We’ve just got to stick together. Both sides played hard. We’ve just got to stick together and make our corrections.”

The Cats are nothing special, but they are comparatively better than the Dragons. And as I always tell users of betting sites, take the better team and the points.
