Breakers vs Stars Prediction & Pick

After last week's unfortunate loss, I see the Breakers taking out their aggression on the inconsistent Stars. It shouldn't be an issue considering that New Orleans boasts the USFL's No. 3 offense (27.0 PPG) while Philadelphia ranks third-worst with an 18.0 PPG clip. The Breakers also own a plus-4.8 average scoring margin (No. 2) while the Stars sit at minus-8.0 — good for dead last.

The home team also isn't built to stop New Orleans' thunderous offense. The Stars surrender the most total yards per game (326.4) and must face the Breakers, who tally a league-leading 353.8 yards per contest. Whether it's through the air or on the ground, I don't see Philadelphia finding much defensive success here.

Back the Breakers to win in a blowout.

Final Score Prediction: Breakers: 30 | Stars: 17

Breakers vs Stars Best Bet

I like the Breakers' odds of covering the 8-point spread Sunday afternoon. Again, their offense is elite and shouldn't have any issues scoring against the defense-starved Stars. Furthermore, Philadelphia has lost three of its last four games, picking up each loss by at least eight points.

Taking into account that the Breakers were outscoring opponents by an average of 7.8 points before last week's loss, they more than have what it takes to cover as 8-point favorites.

Bet: Breakers -8 (-110)
