Only two of the XFL’s eight teams have winning records after Week 4 of the 2020 season. Home teams are 11-5. Favorites and underdogs have covered the spread an equal amount of times.

Here are power rankings for the XFL ahead of Week 5, including each team’s place in the standings and record against the spread.

1) Houston Roughnecks (4-0, first place in XFL West)

The league’s only undefeated team has a two-game lead atop the XFL West. Houston has scored at least 27 points in every game, outscoring its opponents by 38 total points. The Roughnecks are 3-1 against the spread, and the final score has gone over the betting total in three of their four games. MVP favorite P.J. Walker has 987 passing yards, 12 touchdowns and two interceptions

2) St. Louis BattleHawks (3-1, first place in XFL East)

St. Louis has a one-game lead atop the XFL East, suffering its only loss in Houston. The BattleHawks are 3-1 against the spread. St. Louis is 2-0 against the spread on the road and as an underdog. Jordan Ta’amu is second in passing yards and fifth in rushing yards. The BattleHawks have held three of their four opponents to fewer than 17 points.

3) Dallas Renegades (2-2, second place in XFL West)

Landry Jones suffered a knee injury in Week 4 that might’ve ended his season, potentially altering Dallas’ chances of competing for a title. The quarterback is fourth in passing yards and first with seven interceptions, despite missing Week 1. Both of Dallas’ losses have come at the hands of the XFL’s first-place teams. The Renegades are 2-2 against the spread. Every Dallas game has gone under the betting total.

4) DC Defenders (2-2, second place in XFL East)

DC was as impressive as anyone in the first two weeks, leading the league with a plus-39 point differential. The Defenders have since been outscored 64-9 in two road games. Cardale Jones has 175 passing yards, no touchdowns and five interceptions in the two defeats. DC is 2-2 against the spread.

5) New York Guardians (2-2, third place in XFL East)

Third-string quarterback Luis Perez led the Guardians to a much-needed Week 4 victory. New York had been outscored 56-9 during its two-game losing streak. The Guardians have scored a league-low five touchdowns, while every other team has reached the end zone no fewer than seven times. The Guardians are 2-2 against the spread, picking up both wins as a home underdog. No New York game has gone over the betting total.

6) Los Angeles Wildcats (1-3, third place in XFL West)

The Wildcats are three games out of first place in the XFL West after being upset in New York. Los Angeles is tied for a league-worst 1-3 record against the spread. Josh Johnson leads all quarterbacks with a 106.2 passer rating, but L.A. has given up 79 points in its three losses. Nelson Spruce and Tre McBride are two of the league’s top five receivers.

7) Tampa Bay Vipers (1-3, fourth place in XFL East)

Tampa Bay became the last team to register its first victory when the Vipers shut out the Defenders 25-0 in Week 4. Tampa Bay is two games behind St. Louis in the division and 1-3 against the spread. The Vipers are 0-2 against the spread as a favorite and on the road. After scoring no offensive touchdowns in the first two weeks, Tampa Bay has scored at least 25 points in each of the last two games. De’Veon Smith and Jacques Patrick are two of the XFL’s top three rushers.

8) Seattle Dragons (1-3, fourth place in XFL West)

Seattle’s hopes of winning the division are fading fast. Trailing the Roughnecks by three games, the Dragons are the only team that hasn’t been favored in any contest. Seattle is 2-2 against the spread. The Dragons haven’t scored 20 points in any game, and only one of their contests has gone over the betting total. Starting quarterback Bradon Silvers was benched in favor of B.J. Daniels in the second half of the team’s Week 4 loss.
