Generals vs Gamblers Prediction & Pick

This is a match between two opposite styles. On one side are the Generals, who sit atop the North Division due to a defense that only surrenders 17.4 PPG (No. 2). On the other is a Gamblers team that relies on its offense's 28.4 PPG clip (No. 2) to get things done.

Having said that, I like the idea of the Gamblers pulling off an upset. Although they're allowing the second-most points in the USFL (25.8 PPG), they're only surrendering 20.7 PPG during their winning streak while holding their last two opponents to 20 or fewer points.

The Generals' defense is still solid and this should be a close game, but I'm buying into the Gamblers' upswing and backing them to pull off the upset.

Final Score Prediction: Gamblers: 23 | Generals: 20

Generals vs Gamblers Best Bet

As I expect an upset to unfold, I'm backing the Gamblers as +6 underdogs. They've been playing like the better team lately and have outscored their last three opponents by an average of 12.0 points. The Generals' offense has looked lethargic in its latest two losses and even if they win, I don't see them beating the opposition by a touchdown or more.

Bet: Generals +6 (-110)
