Stars vs Maulers Prediction & Pick
These two Pennsylvania-based teams clashed back in Week 3, resulting in a 21-13 win for the Maulers as Pittsburgh kicker Chris Blewitt finished the day with five field goals made. While that loss kickstarted a three-game losing streak for Philly, the Stars have since won back-to-back games since the skid ended.
I don't have much faith in the Maulers after failing to score a single point last week. It didn't help that Pittsburgh's two quarterbacks threw three interceptions. Now, the Maulers face the Stars, who have tallied six interceptions (T-No. 3) and allow the fourth-fewest passing yards per game (175.8) in the USFL.
Unable to trust a team that just got shut down completely, I'll take the Stars winning.
Final Score Prediction: Stars: 19 | Maulers: 16
Stars vs Maulers Best Bet
If you're hoping to see a shootout in Canton, OH, this game isn't for you. The Stars and Maulers have two of the lower-scoring offenses in the league, averaging a combined 33.5 PPG. A 39.5-point projected total also seems a bit high considering the two sides combined for just 34 points in Week 3.
After the Maulers' 0-point showing last week, betting on the Under is clearly the best bet.
Bet: Under 39.5 Total Points (-110)
