XFL Betting Results
Straight Up - SU, Against the Spread - ATS
Road teams started off Week 3 with a pair of victories and while Dallas (-3) covered in its 24-12 win at Seattle, the Houston Roughnecks remained the only unbeaten team in the XFL at 3-0 but it failed to cover (-8) the closing number in their 34-27 road win at Tampa Bay. The combined 61 points posted were the most posted in the XFL this season and 'over' bettors were celebrating before the fourth quarter started.
On Sunday, home teams struck back with a 2-0 SU and ATS mark as St. Louis dominated New York 29-9 in wire-to-wire fashion, easily covering as a double-digit favorite (-10.5). Meanwhile, the upset of the week took place at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California as Los Angeles humbled then 2-0 DC by 30 points (39-9). The Wildcats closed as healthy home underdogs (+8.5) and bettors taking the money-line could've taken home a generous return as high as 4/1 (Bet $100 to win $400).

XFL Week 4 Best Bets
Three weeks of the XFL season are in the books and their really are some breakout players that have performed week in week out. No sugar coating last week as I had a 0-4 record. Through three weeks, I sit at 4-8 with my "Best Bets" and after watching twelve games, I think I have made some adjustments to my ratings grid to have a successful Week 4. Let's break down the games.
Games for Saturday, Feb. 29
Los Angeles Wildcats at New York Guardians
(ABC, 2:00 p.m. ET)
Two of the bottom tier teams meet in New York in Saturday's first game as the Los Angeles Wildcats head to the struggling New York Guardians as a road favorites. The Wildcats were slotted as one of the middle tier teams in the XFL and got off to a rough start before finally breaking through last week for a needed win over a stoudt DC team. I think LA carries that momentum into New York where nothing is working on offense no matter who they put at quarterback. I think this line screams LA as the books beg you to take the Guardians here. QB Josh Johnson had one of his best pro games of his career last week throwing for 278 yards and three touchdowns for the 'Cats. Lay the 7 points here and take the road Wildcats here.
Best Bet: Los Angeles -7
Seattle Dragons at St. Louis BattleHawks
(FOX, 5:00 p.m. ET)
In the late game for Saturday we have the 1-2 Seattle Dragons traveling to St.Louis to play the hottest team in the XFL, the 2-1 Battlehawks. St.Louis opened up the season as 10-1 long shots to win the XFL Championship and now sit at 5/2 odds to win the XFL Championship. A ton has to do with smart play from their quarterback position and utilizing a power run game which thus far has yielded 157.7 yards per game. St.Louis has been perfect ATS so far this season but I feel as though 12 points is a tall order here. We will take the points and the Dragons at +12 in the late Saturday afternoon tilt.
Best Bet: Seattle +12
Games for Sunday, Mar. 1
Houston Roughnecks at Dallas Renegades
(FS1, 4:00 p.m. ET)
In Sunday’s early game and the premier matchup in Week 4 of the XFL has the undefeated Houston Roughnecks lead by PJ Walker at quarterback, and a wide receiver named Cam Phillips, who had 8 catches and 194 yards and 3 touchdowns last week for Houston. Look for the PJ Walker and Cam connection to continue on Sunday. Former NFL QB and Oklahoma Sooners standout Landry Jones impressed me last week for Dallas as they won an always tough road spot in Seattle with an engaged crowd. The Houston line seems padded to me as Dallas came into the season as the best rated roster in the league so here we get a team that is starting to heat up at home as a short 'dog -- a definite no brainer for me. Betting on Dallas +2 here on Sunday but feel like this team will win no points needed.
Best Bet: Dallas +2
DC Defenders at Tampa Bay Vipers
(ESPN2, 7:00 p.m. ET)
We finish out our week four XFL card with a very intriguing game and one that looks like a trap for bettors. Tampa Bay opened up as road favorite in the first two weeks of the season and lost both games straight up. Last week the Vipers and head coach Marc Trestman still could not figure out their QB situation and it showed on the field. With Aaron Murray out with a foot injury they turned to backup Taylor Cornelius, some might recall his time at Oklahoma State. DC Defenders went into last week's game at LA as easily one of the best teams in the XFL but that loss to LA by 30 points has raised some questions. This line for today’s game opened up at Tampa +1 which seems like a trap. Bettors have bet big on the road Defenders in a big way. For me Tampa will be all in for this game and I gotta believe that they get into the win column. Take any and all points here. I like Tampa +2.5 at home.
Best Bet: Tampa Bay +2.5
