Team Betting Notes
-- Philadelphia (1-1) hosted Jacksonville (1-1) in what was expected to be an easy win. The Soul were outscored 31-14 in the second half by the Sharks, losing at home as 8-point favorites to a Jacksonville team which was handled 64-39 in Los Angeles last weekend. It is easily the most shocking result of the early season.
-- Arizona (2-0) won their opener 80-28, and have now outscored their two opponents 149-56 after punishing the L.A. Kiss (1-1). The Rattlers appear to be heads and tails better than anyone in this league right now. While many things have changed in the Arena League in recent seasons, the Rattlers remain a constant.
-- Orlando (2-0) held off Portland (0-2) in a wild game in Central Florida, 53-50-. The first half was rather low scoring, with the Predators up just 20-16 at the break. The Predators have allowed a total of just 75 points on defense, and the 'under' is 1-0-1 as a result.
-- Cleveland (1-1) bounced back from a drumming last weekend by grinding out a low-scoring 41-29 win against Tampa Bay (0-2). For the Storm, they are now 0-2 ATS this season and the 'under' has connected in each of their outings.
