This weekend, the XFL Playoffs begin with two matchups that will determine the ultimate champions of the South and North Divisions. The winners of each XFL Playoff game will move on to compete for the 2023 XFL Championship.
Four days out from XFL Playoff Weekend, both home teams were projected to win at the gambling sites listed in our online sportsbook reviews. If the final scores play out as predicted, then those of you who used those odds for betting on the XFL playoffs will be cleaning up nicely when the games end.
Betting On The XFL South Division Winner
This Saturday at 7:00 PM on ESPN2, the winner of the XFL South will be decided between the first place Roughnecks and second place Renegades. Houston is favored by 6 points at TDECU Stadium, but is there any reason to bet on the Renegades following their four-win effort in 2023?
Arlington Renegades (4-6) @ Houston Roughnecks (7-3)
- Renegades Point Spread: +6.0
- Renegades Moneyline: +200
- Roughnecks Point Spread: -6.0
- Roughnecks Moneyline: -240
- Over/Under: 41.0
Houston just beat Arlington 25 to 9 last weekend. The Roughnecks had the XFL South wrapped up heading into Week 10 and the Renegades desperately needed the win to stay ahead of the San Antonio Brahmas in the Wild Card hunt.
We believe that the Roughnecks will cover the 6 points at home on Saturday.
Betting On The XFL North Division Winner
Sunday at 3:00 PM on ESPN, the Sea Dragons and the Defenders will face off in Washington, D.C.’s Audi Field for the XFL North crown. Seattle and the St. Louis Battlehawks finished tied at 7-3, but the Sea Dragons won a tie break that sent them to the playoffs.
Seattle Sea Dragons (7-3) @ DC Defenders (9-1)
- Sea Dragons Point Spread: +3.0
- Sea Dragons Moneyline: +155
- Defenders Point Spread: -3.0
- Defenders Moneyline: -180
- Over/Under: 49.0
DC is only favored by a field goal over Seattle. Can the Sea Dragons knock off the mighty Defenders and overcome their 3-point deficit in the XFL Playoff odds? We’re betting on the Defenders to cover and easily move on to the XFL Championship Game.
2023 XFL Championship Odds
This is likely the final week of the 2023 season where XFL futures will take action at online sportsbooks. After this weekend’s games, moneyline odds for the remaining XFL teams will be posted inside Championship Game betting lines.
Odds To Win 2023 XFL Championship Game
- DC Defenders +115
- Houston Roughnecks +190
- Seattle Sea Dragons +275
- Arlington Renegades +1000
The above XFL futures reflect the same outcome that is forecast by the playoff betting lines – a championship game where the Houston Roughnecks and DC Defenders meet.
The XFL Championship Game will be played on May 13th at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. The location certainly grants the Roughnecks a significant homefield advantage, as Houston is only a 200 mile drive from San Antonio.
Still, the Defenders hold the edge in the current XFL Championship odds, and suggests that betting lines for the final game will feature slim margins. XFL Championship betting lines will be posted as early as this Sunday evening.
