XFL Week 4 Odds
Houston Roughnecks at Orlando Guardians
Saturday, March 11, 7 p.m. ET
Camping World Stadium, Orlando, Florida
The Roughnecks remained undefeated for both the season and in franchise history with a 22-13 win over the Brahmas on Sunday night. The Guardians turned in their best effort yet over three contests but still struggled on offense and came up short by a 10-9 score to the Renegades.
Brandon Silvers continued to look like quite the field general in AJ Smith’s aggressive offense in Week 3. He amassed 278 yards and three touchdowns. The young quarterback’s impressive chemistry with speedy receiver Jontre Kirklin (6-77-2) and running back Max Borghi’s strong all-around play (86 total yards) makes Houston’s offense a major headache for defensive coordinators.
It may be difficult for head coach Terrell Buckley to find much to smile about thus far. But, his team was at its most competitive by far in Sunday’s loss to Arlington. Orlando appears to have a solid defense overall when its offense can sustain some drives. The Guardians actually outgained the Renegades, 271-178, in total yards. However, they’ll undoubtedly have an uphill battle against Houston on both sides of the ball, considering the Roughnecks have also been a force defensively.
Given the disparity between the two teams’ records and overall body of work thus far, it’s not surprising to see the Roughnecks as the biggest favorites of the week at 8.5 points.
San Antonio Brahmas at Seattle Sea Dragons
Saturday, March 11, 10 p.m. ET
Lumen Field, Seattle, Washington
The Brahmas had the misfortune of coming up against the most impressive team in the league thus far in the Roughnecks in Week 3. And although they were mostly competitive, still came up short by a 22-13 margin. The Sea Dragons appeared headed for yet another close loss on Saturday night but clipped the Vipers by a 30-26 score thanks to a thrilling Josh Gordon touchdown reception in the closing seconds.
Brahmas quarterback Jack Coan had his first clunker of the season after a pair of strong starts. He finished with a minuscule 64 passing yards versus the Roughnecks’ elite defense. The matchup for him and the rest of his cohorts shapes up as more palatable in Week 4, however. The Sea Dragons have yielded the second-most points (68) through three games.
However, San Antonio’s defense will also going to have its hands full if the Week 3 play of Ben DiNucci and the rest of Seattle’s offense is any indication. DiNucci threw for a league-high 377 passing yards and four touchdowns versus Vegas. His chemistry with Gordon and Jahcour Pearson is the talk of the league after the offensive breakout. The Brahmas showed some vulnerability through the air against the Roughnecks’ Brandon Silvers and his pass catchers Sunday night. That could certainly bode well for a Sea Dragons attack that Houston’s is partly derived from.
Although both teams appear to be pretty evenly matched based on the first three weeks, the Sea Dragons are a solid 4.5-point home favorite as the week starts.

Arlington Renegades at St. Louis Battlehawks
Sunday, March 12, 4 p.m. ET
The Dome at America’s Center, St. Louis, Missouri
The Renegades didn’t see many immediate dividends from their switch to Kyle Sloter at quarterback in Week 3, but they had just enough to squeeze out a 10-9 home win. The Battlehawks nearly pulled off a third consecutive last-minute miracle in as many games before succumbing to the Defenders, 34-28.
Sloter threw for just 124 yards and the De’Veon Smith-helmed ground attack was once again stymied in Week 3. So, head coach Bob Stoops certainly can’t be very satisfied with a one-point victory against winless Orlando. Sloter could well look a bit smoother after another week of practice and will likely have to be. The never-say-die Battlehawks have proven a team that one can’t have too many points against.
St. Louis’ AJ McCarron seems to thoroughly enjoy his most extensive playing time in years. His 262-yard, four-touchdown tally versus a tough DC defense was his best performance yet. The Battlehawks offense can attack effectively through either the ground or air, which could give a Renegades defense that had trouble with Houston’s similarly talented offense in Week 2.
With a substantial crowd expected for the Battlehawks’ home opener and Arlington’s offensive struggles, St. Louis is up to a 4-point home favorite.

Vegas Vipers at DC Defenders
Sunday, March 12, 7 p.m. ET
Audi Field, Washington, DC
The Vipers suffered a third straight disappointment in Week 3. Their 30-26 loss to the Sea Dragons came in especially heartbreaking fashion thanks to a 65-yard touchdown grab by Seattle’s Josh Gordon. The Defenders stomached their own close outcome, but came out on the winning end of a 34-28 score against the Battlehawks.
Vipers head coach Rod Woodson has to be feeling the weight of two especially tough losses in the first three weeks. But, the solace is that his team is littered with plenty of former NFL talent. It should have the wherewithal to eventually turn things around. Nevertheless, quarterback Brett Hundley has yet to demonstrate any appreciable chemistry with the top wideout duo of Martavis Bryant and Geronimo Allison. And the Rod Smith-led running game is struggling to gain traction as well.
The Defenders passing game showed some much-needed improvement in Week 3, with Jordan Ta’amu throwing for 196 yards and a touchdown while adding 22 rushing yards and another score on the ground. Meanwhile, the backfield tandem of Abram Smith and Ryquell Armstead could be the league’s best 1-2 punch at the moment. And a Vipers defense that couldn’t slow down Seattle’s Morgan Ellison before he exited Saturday’s game with a leg injury may therefore be especially challenged.
Although the Vipers have proven to be a pretty tough out for all three teams they’ve faced and have plenty of talent with NFL experience, oddsmakers have made the Defenders a comfortable 6-point favorite.
Best of luck betting XFL Week 4 odds.
