Team Betting Notes
-- Arizona (11-0) dumped San Jose (7-4) in a clash of National Conference heavyweights, 51-42. Depending on your shop, this was either a push or SaberCats cover. The consensus was San Jose +9.5, so we'll call it a San Jose cover. That ends a three-game cover streak for the Rattlers. The 'under' has now cashed in four straight for Arizona, and seven straight for San Jose.
-- Cleveland (9-1) tasted its first defeat of the season, falling 48-34 in Pittsburgh (8-3). The Power have now covered five straight, and nine of the past 10. The Gladiators, meanwhile, have failed to cover in three of their past four.
-- The 'under' has been the play for the Glads and Power, as it hit again in Week 12. The under is now 6-1 over the past seven for Cleveland, and the under is 3-1 in the past four for Pittsburgh, and 7-3 over the past 10.
-- Iowa (6-5) won for the second straight game, holding off Orlando (6-5) as a slight home dog. The Barnstormers have cover back-to-back games, and they're 5-2 ATS over their past seven. After a four-game over streak from April 27-May 17, the 'under' has connected in two straight for Iowa.
-- Tampa Bay (5-6) has won back-to-back games for the first time since Week 1-2, spanking New Orleans (2-8). The 'over' is now 5-1 in the past six games for the VooDoo.
-- With the biggest spread of the week (-20), Philadelphia (6-5) managed to cover against San Antonio (1-10), 76-40.
-- One thing has been a constant for the Talons - the 'over'. It has cashed in six of the past seven games for San Antonio.
