USFL odds

The USFL 2.0’s second season is underway, and legal sportsbooks have already released Week 3 odds.

The Week 3 ledger kicks off Saturday afternoon with a New Orleans Breakers-Birmingham Stallions clash that could prove the best game of the week and concludes with the New Jersey Generals taking on a surprisingly undefeated Michigan Panthers squad on Sunday evening.

USFL Week 3 Odds

New Orleans Breakers at Birmingham Stallions

The Breakers outlasted a surprisingly feisty Gamblers team to get to 2-0 in Week 2, prevailing by a 38-31 score. The Stallions absolutely steamrolled the Showboats, 42-2.

New Orleans may have some defensive concerns after allowing the Gamblers to put up 31 points and quarterback Kenji Behar to throw for 266 yards and three touchdowns. However, the Breakers have plenty of offensive firepower in their own right behind McLeod Bethel-Thompson’s quick re-acclimation to stateside pro football after years of success in the CFL.

The Stallions once again appear to be clicking on all cylinders. Even the losses of J’Mar Smith (finger) and Bo Scarbrough (knee) for the season have yet to faze Skip Holtz’s defending champs. Alex McGough and ZaQuandre Smith appear to be very capable fill-ins, respectively, while Birmingham’s defense, already stellar in 2022, seems to have taken its play to a new level by allowing just 12 total points in the first two games.

With Birmingham looking virtually unstoppable, the Stallions are 6-point favorites.

Memphis Showboats at Houston Gamblers

The Showboats were thoroughly embarrassed by the Stallions in Week 2, with their defense collapsing in a 42-2 loss. The Gamblers gave the Breakers all they could handle before falling by a 38-31 score.  

Memphis’ unraveling in Week 2 will likely prove to be an outlier, but the fact remains the Showboats have allowed 69 points through two games, along with a league-high 372 total yards per contest. The Gamblers did show some life on offense before falling short by a touchdown against New Orleans, and if Houston can carry over that momentum, this could be another challenging week for Todd Haley’s squad.

Houston will need to worry about slowing down the Showboats as well, however. The Gamblers have been generous through two games, giving up the second-most total yards (345.5) and points per game (33.5) right behind Memphis. The Showboats do have the potential for a very balanced attack if they can keep game script on their side, as NFL veteran Alex Collins has the potential to be a highly effective complement to quarterback Brady White’s exploits through the air.

The Gamblers have been installed as 3-point favorites despite this technically being a home game for Memphis.

Pittsburgh Maulers at Philadelphia Stars

The Maulers took a step back on offense in Week 2, dropping a 20-3 decision to the Generals. The Stars also had their struggles getting into the end zone despite putting some solid yardage, leading to a 24-10 loss to the Panthers.

Pittsburgh had at least put up 15 points in Week 1, but the Maulers fell way short of building on that momentum against the Generals. The quarterback duo of James Morgan and Troy Williams combined for just 124 passing yards in Week 2, and the running game continued to sputter with just 3 yards per carry overall. Philly’s spotty defense could help facilitate a more balanced attack, however, as the Stars have surrendered 120.5 rushing yards per contest through two weeks.

The Stars had an inefficient night against the Panthers that included a 1-for-4 showing in red-zone trips, but Philadelphia’s offense is still a strong point. Case Cookus has thrown for 495 yards through two games. Pittsburgh shapes up as a viable target considering they allowed a 300-yard passing day to a quarterback of similar caliber in the Breakers’ Bethel-Thompson in Week 1 before a much more favorable matchup versus the Generals in Week 2.

Given the disparity in the matchup, it’s of little surprise the Stars are 6.5-point favorites.

New Jersey Generals at Michigan Panthers

The Generals dominated the Maulers by a 20-3 score in Week 2 to atone for an ugly Week 1 loss to the Stallions. The Panthers demonstrated why they might be a sneaky underdog pick for a championship run by moving to 2-0 with a 24-10 win over last year’s title runner-up, the Stars.

New Jersey is still somewhat of an enigma despite the strong Week 2 performance. The Generals’ De’Andre Johnson hasn’t looked like the same player he was last season while splitting time with the departed Luis Perez. Dakota Prukop, Johnson’s new position mate in Mike Riley’s unique quarterback timeshare, has been uneven over the first two weeks. Running back Darius Victor is clearly the offense’s most consistent weapon after garnering 155 rushing yards at 6.7 yards per carry through two games, but the matchup against a Panthers unit allowing a league-low 71.5 rushing yards per contest through two weeks looks daunting.

Michigan has some question marks of its own under center. After a near-perfect, three-touchdown showing in Week 1, Josh Love produced only 150 yards and threw two interceptions while completing 50% of his passes in Week 2. Running back Reggie Corbin was outstanding with a 131-yard, two-touchdown night versus Philadelphia, but like Victor, he’ll face a less-than-ideal matchup in Week 3 considering New Jersey is right behind Michigan with just 78.5 rushing yards per game surrendered thus far.

The Panthers are unsurprisingly up to 4.5-point favorites in what amounts to a home game for them at Ford Field.

Best of luck betting USFL odds in Week 3.
