Stallions vs Bandits Game Info

2022 USFL Regular Season Game
Birmingham Stallions (8-1, 4-0 Away) vs. Tampa Bay Bandits (4-5, 2-2 Home)
Date: Saturday, June 18, 2021
Time: 4:00 p.m. ET
Venue: Legion Field — Birmingham, AL

The Birmingham Stallions suffered their first loss of the season last week when they fell to the Houston Gamblers by a score of 17-15. The offense was stymied and will look to get back on track in the regular season finale on Saturday before heading into the playoffs as the South's No. 1 seed.

Meanwhile, the Tampa Bay Bandits were eliminated from playoff contention thanks to their loss to the New Orleans Breakers in Week 9. Head coach Todd Haley will look to end the season on a high after watching his squad turn the ball over four times in its most recent game.

Odssmakers have the Stallions slated as 3.5-point favorites in this game and anyone looking at the standings would understand why. Birmingham is 8-1 straight up and have yet to lose a game on the road. These teams combined for just 26 points during their first matchup, so keep an eye on whether bettors drive this total down before kickoff.

Stallions vs Bandits Prediction

All USFL win predictions and picks are according to USA Today Sports.
Prediction: Tampa Bay Bandits Win

USA Today Sports is siding with the upset in this game and cites a lack of motivation as the deciding factor. Birmingham is locked into that No. 1 seed and head coach Skip Holtz could easily opt to sit his star players in order to avoid injury. On the other side, this is it for Bandits players. They could take out some frustrations of missing the playoffs with an upset on Saturday afternoon.

Stallions vs Bandits Betting Trends

- Favorites have gone 27-9 straight up during the 2022 USFL season.
- Birmingham is 6-3 against the spread (ATS) in its last nine games.
- Tampa Bays is 3-6 ATS in its last nine games.
- The total has hit the under in 13 of the USFL's 19 games this season with a total set at 40+ points.

The uncertainty of who will be playing the majority of the game for the Stallions makes betting the spread a risky option. The point total has a ton of value here, though. The over has only cashed six times in 19 USFL games with totals set at 40+ points and these teams showcased solid defense during their first meeting in Week 4 (16-10 final score). All signs point to the total staying under again.
