Week 1 of the USFL included a little bit of everything: An exciting Saturday to open the season, a couple upsets Sunday and a few scores that ultimately prompted a shift in the futures odds.
So, what do we have in store this upcoming weekend?
Here are the USFL betting lines and totals for all four games in Week 2, including a couple narrow lines for the Breakers vs. Bandits and Panthers vs. Generals matchups.
Friday, April 22
Michigan Panthers vs. New Jersey Generals (-1.5), 40.5
8 p.m. ET | USA Network
Michigan was the favorite at some shops to win the USFL title, but flopped in the opener to Houston, 17-12.
The Generals, meanwhile, racked up the second-most points of Week 1 (24), behind the league’s top offense in both rushing yards (223) and total yards (409).
Saturday, April 23
Pittsburgh Maulers vs. Philadelphia Stars (-6.5), 34.5
12 p.m. ET | FOX
The 6.5-point line and 34.5-point total are both the largest spread and lowest over/under we’ve tracked among the eight USFL games in 2022.
The Maulers were the lone team unable to crack double digits in Week 1 and fell, 17-3, to Tampa Bay.
Pittsburgh’s offense notably struggled through the air, falling shy of the century mark with just 97 yards.
Houston Gamblers vs. Birmingham Stallions (-3.5), 41.5
7 p.m. ET | FS1
If you like solid passing attacks, Birmingham’s the bandwagon to hop on.
The Stallions put on a clinic in the league’s inaugural clash vs. New Jersey, registering the most points (28), passing yards (205) and yards per catch (13.2) in the USFL.
Houston, coached by Kevin Sumlin, scored all of its 17 points in the first half last Sunday in a win.
Sunday, April 24
New Orleans Breakers vs. Tampa Bay Bandits (-2.5), 40.5
3 p.m. ET | NBC, Peacock
Sunday’s tilt features the top two teams in the title odds.
The Bandits are the consensus favorites. They cleaned up in Week 1, trouncing Pittsburgh by double digits.
New Orleans, meanwhile, upset Philly in the opener.
