Betting Odds: San Diego Fleet at Memphis Express

  • Spread: San Diego -6.5
  • Over/Under: 39.5
  • Time: 4 p.m. ET on Saturday
  • TV: B/R Live

Betting market: There’s been movement on the spread and the over/under, as San Diego opened as a -5.5 favorite with a total of 41 points.

The public apparently doesn’t think Zach Mettenberger will prove to be much of an upgrade over whatever the hell the Christian Hackenberg experience was supposed to be.

Week 3 Takeaways

San Diego’s 31-11 Win Over San Antonio

  • Philip Nelson is entrenched as the Fleet’s starting quarterback and had his finest performance in last week’s win. He rebounded brilliantly after throwing an interception on the game’s first play to complete 17-of-25 passes (68%) for 193 yards (7.7 yard per attempt) and a pair of touchdowns.
  • San Diego was the only team to utilize only two running backs in Week 3. Terrell Watson and Ja’Quan Gardner racked up double-digit touches for the second time in as many weeks, though Watson (60% snaps) was the offense’s preferred goal-line and two-point conversion back over Gardner (40%).
  • Nelson Spruce has emerged as the clear-cut No. 1 receiver for the Fleet. Brian Brown and tight end Gavin Escobar were the only other receivers to play at least 65% of the offense’s snaps in Week 3, as Francis Owusu and Dontez Ford played just 22% and 40% of the offense’s snaps, respectively. Spruce is one of only seven receivers with at least 25% of his team’s air yard market share (per NoExtraPoints.com).

Memphis’ 21-17 Loss to Orlando
