DC Defenders vs. TB Vipers

The Tampa Bay Vipers have been the laughing-stock in the XFL as they went from one of the projected best teams in the league according to oddsmakers to most likely only winning three games this season. Tampa Bay opened up the season with the highest season total at 7.5 wins, and favorites to win the title at +175, but have yet to win a game this season and now take on a pissed of DC Defenders team that is ready to get back on track. DC comes into this game off a blowout loss to the Los Angeles Wildcats, but have the ability to easily get back to their winning ways. QB Cardale Jones and the offense have scored an average of 22.3 points per game this season while allowing 19.3 points per game. On the other side, it is not that better for Tampa Bay as they have scored 13 points per game while allowing 24.6 points per game. DC has the all-around offense as this most likely turns into a shootout with both teams averaging higher than 350 total yards per game. Give me Jones in this tight game as the Defenders get their third win on the year. Pick Defenders -2.5
