The Birmingham Stallions can clinch a USFL playoff spot this weekend. They will need some help, but a victory over the Pittsburgh Maulers will go a long way to achieving that goal. The two teams will kick off at 2:00 p.m. ET on Fox.
The Stallions (6-0) are the USFL’s highest-scoring team and its only undefeated team. Former Alabama RB Bo Scarbrough ran for 104 yards and a touchdown on just 16 carries last week in Birmingham’s 33-17 victory over the Michigan Panthers. That performance earned the big back USFL Offensive Player of the Week honors.
The Maulers (1-5) have scored a league-low 76 points through six games, but new QB Vlad Lee has made the offense a little more exciting to watch, or at least more competitive. The Maulers have compiled nearly half of those points in their past two games.
How to watch Stallions vs. Maulers
Odds on DraftKings Sportsbook
Spread: Stallions -12.5
Point total: 41
Moneyline odds: Stallions -760, Maulers +560
Best bet: Maulers +12.5
It’s the biggest spread of the USFL season. Take Pittsburgh for the backdoor cover as the Maulers should be able to score enough to keep this game somewhat close. Although the Stallions won by 16 last week, they have typically claimed victory by 10 or fewer points.
