The DC Defenders have now won their first six games of the 2023 XFL season, and have placed themselves with a 2-game lead on the rest of the league.
There are four weeks remaining in the regular season, and the Defenders are positioned to win the XFL North crown and host a championship semi-final game.
The South Division’s Houston Roughnecks have dropped their last two games and now possess a 4-2 record. They’re one game up on the 3-3 Arlington Renegades, with the remainder of the division falling under .500.
Lines for XFL betting have been rolled out for Week 7. Here’s our take on each matchup.
Seattle Sea Dragons @ Arlington Renegades
- Point Spread: Seattle -4.5, Arlington +4.5
- Money Line: Seattle -210, Arlington +175
- Over/Under: 37.5
Tomorrow at 7:00 PM, the XFL will air professional football on Friday night in an attempt to recapture higher television ratings that have eluded them thus far in 2023.
The Arlington Renegades showed some defensive promise this season, but their offensive production has stalled. The Seattle Sea Dragons hold one of the best records in the XFL at 4-2, but they are in a dogfight for playoff contention because their division is so competitive.
We expect the Sea Dragons to win, but we are betting on the Arlington Renegades to cover.
San Antonio Brahmas @ Vegas Vipers
- Point Spread: Brahmas +3.0, Vegas -3.0
- Money Line: Brahmas +130, Vegas -150
- Over/Under: 39.0
Saturday features a double-header of XFL games, starting with the San Antonio Brahmas and Vegas Vipers at 3:00 PM. Both teams are in the basement of their respective divisions, and the loser of this contest can consider their season over.
DC Defenders @ Orlando Guardians
- Point Spread: DC -10.0, Guardians +10.0
- Money Line: DC -500, Guardians +360
- Over/Under: 45.5
The Defenders are favored by a massive 10-point spread over the Orlando Guardians who are easily the worst team in the league this year. We’re betting on the Defenders to cover, despite such a lopsided margin.
St. Louis BattleHawks @ Houston Roughnecks
- Point Spread: BattleHawks +3.5, Roughnecks -3.5
- Money Line: BattleHawks +135, Roughnecks -160
- Over/Under: 44.5
Sunday at 2:00 PM, the BattleHawks and Roughnecks conclude the Week 7 schedule. Both teams enter the contest with identical 4-2 records, with the Roughnecks favored to win by -3.5 in opening lines.
St. Louis needs the win to keep pace with the Sea Dragons, as their fight for the second seed in the North will likely continue for the remainder of the year.
XFL futures rate the Sea Dragons and the BattleHawks 50 points apart in the moneyline odds, suggesting the battle will continue over the final four weeks of 2023.
