Is XFL Betting Legal?

As long as you place your bets at an online or brick and mortar sportsbook that is operating legally offshore or domestically, then yes, it is perfectly legal.  The sportsbooks you see on this page are all operating legally within the industry and are either independently licensed or are owned and operated by a parent company that holds licensing credentials.

So if you live in a state that has not yet legalized local sports betting, or you simply prefer the online betting options from international sportsbooks, you can place your bets at legitimate offshore sports betting sites without violating any state or federal gambling laws.  The exceptions are CT and WA, both of which have prohibited all forms of online gambling, and the state of NJ, which has convinced offshore sportsbooks to exit the NJ gambling market.

New York Guardians Coaches

Head Coach/General Manager: Kevin Gilbride

Kevin Gilbride began his coaching career in 1974, where he started in the college ranks before being elevated to the NFL in 1989.  Most will fondly recall Coach Gilbride from his stint as offensive coordinator for the Houston Oilers in the early 1990s.  It was there where he fostered his pass-heavy offense alongside Hall of Fame quarterback Warren Moon.

Unfortunately, Gilbride is likely most remembered for getting into a fistfight with fiery Oilers head coach Buddy Ryan, though he couldn’t punch through Ryan’s guard (which is ironic given his new post in the XFL). After his time with Houston, Gilbride moved on to become the offensive coordinator for many more NFL teams.  In 1997, he was named head coach for the San Diego Chargers, a position he held for two seasons.

Now, G-Bride has become the first head coach of the G-Men (or G-Boys, depending on your perspective, even though the NFL’s Giants are pretty terrible), bringing his own brand of pass-first offense to the table while defending against those who would try to knock the Guardians off their perch.

NY Guardians Notable Players
Matt McGloin, QB

After a successful collegiate career at Penn State, quarterback Matt McGloin went undrafted and signed a free-agent contract with the Oakland Raiders.  After four years in Oakland, McGloin tried to gain traction with another team but wasn’t able to stick.  Matt is projected to be the day one starter for the Guardians, and he is ready to stand watch. 

Luis Perez, QB

If anything goes wrong with the Matt McGloin experiment, Luis Perez will be there to take the reins.   Luis was first drafted by the XFL’s Los Angeles Wildcats, but was traded to the Guardians on January 19, 2020.  Over the last two years, Luis has spent time on three NFL practice squads and two AAF teams and is looking to make his mark in the new XFL as a member of the Guardians.

Joe Horn Jr., WR

Horn is the son of former NFL wide receiver Joe Horn and is competing for a roster spot at the wide receiver position.  Many will remember the time his father, while playing for the New Orleans Saints, pulled a cell phone from the goalpost padding and used it as a prop for a touchdown celebration.  Jr. is all business, though, and he is ready to take his post and bring home an XFL title in 2020.

XFL Salaries - NY Guardians

Many are wondering just how much each XFL player will earn.  The actual formula has yet to be released, but the New York Guardians will have the same salary structure as all other teams in the XFL.

The league has revealed that the average XFL salary is $55,000 per player, but quarterbacks are able to earn roughly double that amount.  The salary of other skill positions will fall within the range of the average and the maximum, and XFL players will have the chance to earn additional weekly funds in the form of winner or roster bonuses. Meanwhile, the XFL coaching staff salary tops out at $500,000, though this is heavily dependent upon incentives, and assistant coaches make considerably less.
