BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – The first USFL Playoffs game features the Birmingham Stallions as a 3.0-point favorite against the New Orleans Breakers in the South Division Championship. An exciting matchup is expected, as the Breakers and Stallions statistically have the best records, best quarterbacks, and best offenses in the USFL.
New Orleans Breakers Vs Birmingham Stallions Betting Lines
|New Orleans Breakers||+3.0 (-105)||+135||O45.0 (-110)|
|Birmingham Stallions||-3.0 (-115)||-160||U45.0 (-110)|
The Birmingham stallions and New Orleans Breakers both share Protective Stadium in Birmingham as their home stadiums. For the Stallions, both of their losses this season came as the home team, including a 31-45 Week 3 loss to the New Orleans Breakers.
Although they went on to lose 20-24 in their second meeting with the Birmingham Stallions, a 14-point win and a 4-point loss make their 3.0-point underdog spread worth a bet.
The Breakers proved they’re plenty capable of claiming their +135 moneyline odds in Saturday night’s South division Championship. Birmingham and New Orleans totaled 44 points in their Week 7 rematch falling just short of the over at 45.0 points.
Still, their -115 USFL betting odds on the over are valuable considering they averaged 60 points per game across their two regular season matchups. The total has gone over 45.0 points in three straight Birmingham Stallions games.
North Division Championship
USFL North Division Championship odds list the 4-6 Michigan Panthers as a 3.0-point underdog to the 4-6 Pittsburgh Maulers. Both teams have a worse record than every team in the USFL South.
Regardless of their records, the under at 38.0 is the best bet of the USFL Playoffs with -115 odds.
Michigan Panthers Vs Pittsburgh Maulers Betting Lines
|Michigan Panthers||+3.0 (-110)||+130||O38.0 (-110)|
|Pittsburgh Maulers||-3.0 (-110)||-150||U38.0 (-110)|
The Maulers and Panthers are the two lowest scoring teams in the USFL, and had low scoring affairs in both their head-to-head matchups this season. Pittsburgh Maulers totals went under 38.0 points in seven of their 10 regular season games this season.
Pittsburgh held the Panthers to seven points in each game, giving value to their 3.0-point spread for the North Division Championship.
