Panthers vs Generals Prediction & Pick

Michigan is simply in a tailspin right now. All four of its losses have come by a double-digit margin and it has not scored more than 13 points in a game since Week 2. The Panthers lack an offensive identity and can't make up for it on defense given they rank sixth in rushing yards allowed per game (124.5).

That gives New Jersey a clear opportunity to get back on track with a win. The Generals average the most rushing yards per game in the USFL (151.7) and rank third in rushing touchdowns (7). Look for running back Darius Victor to pick apart the Panthers' defense en route to a comfortable victory.

I'll back New Jersey to secure a season sweep over Michigan, keeping them in playoff contention.

Final Score Prediction: Panthers: 14 | Generals: 24

Panthers vs Generals Best Bet

There's a lot to like about the chances of a low-scoring game breaking out on Sunday. After all, less than 43 points have been scored in all six of the Panthers' games as well as in five of the Generals' six games this season. These are two teams that rank among the bottom three in passing yards per game and rely on their rushing attack more often than not. That leads to a churning game clock.

Bet: Under 42.5 Total Points (-110)
