Against The Spread Pick
The Los Angeles Wildcats are hoping to have their first winning streak of their XFL existence as they hit the road to take on the New York Guardians. The Wildcats offense pulled off one of the biggest upsets so far in the new league as they destroyed Cardale Jones and the DC Defenders this past Sunday. Jones ran into a brick wall in the Wildcats defense having put up a gaudy 500 total passing yards, four touchdowns and one interception in the first two weeks. Los Angeles picked off Jones four times in the blowout win and that aggressive defense will now take on the Guardians. New York are coming off a blow-out loss to the St. Louis Battlehawks and the offense is still one of the worst in the league. Even though the Guardians won in week one, the offense has not delivered at all. New York’s only second-half touchdown came on a scoop and score, and they totaled just 226 yards of total offense, with just 2.8 yards-per-carry on the ground. I do not trust this New York offense at all and will ride this Wildcats train until it stops.
Over Under Pick
It has been announced that wide receiver Nelson Spruce is OUT for this matchup and without a doubt the Wildcats’ most explosive offensive player will be missed. Spruce has been one of the hottest receivers in the league catching 20 passes for 267 yards and two touchdowns. Without Spruce, Los Angeles will struggle a bit on the offensive side, a felling that is all too familiar to New York. This might be the game the Wildcats find their running game finally, especially if Hood can suit up for the game. Give me the under as this game screams slow and controlled for the Wildcats win.
