The Los Angeles Wildcats and Tampa Bay Vipers enter Week 3 as the only two XFL teams that have yet to cover a point spread. The DC Defenders and St. Louis BattleHawks are both 2-0 against the spread.

Here are picks against the spread for every game in Week 3 of the 2020 XFL season, as well as updated betting odds at U.S. sportsbooks.

Houston Roughnecks (-6.5) at Tampa Bay Vipers, 45.5

Houston has the best offense and the quarterback that’s been the most impressive through two weeks. P.J. Walker leads the league with seven touchdown passes, and he’s posted a triple-digit passer rating in both contests. Walker has only been sacked once each game, constantly buying time with his legs and making big plays.

Tampa Bay has tried three different quarterbacks under center. They’ve combined to throw for no scores and five interceptions. Houston might have the best defensive line in the league.

The Roughnecks have scored at least 28 points in each game and lead the league with 5.88 yards per play. The Vipers have been outscored 40-12 and don’t have a single offensive touchdown.

Prediction ATS: Houston

Dallas Renegades (-5) at Seattle Dragons, 43.5

The Dragons are averaging 4.42 yards per play. Brandon Silvers leads the XFL with three interceptions, two of which have been returned for touchdowns. With a 72.6 passer rating in Week 1 and 50.9 Week 2 passer rating, Silvers is the only XFL quarterback that’s made two starts and hasn’t posted a passer rating of at least 82.8.

Dallas averaged 6.7 yards per play in Week 2 when Landry Jones made his debut. Jones, a leading MVP candidate before the season, threw for 305 yards and will face a Seattle defense that’s surrendered the highest passer rating in any game. Cameron Artis-Payne is coming off the best game by any XFL running back. The Dragons gave up 119 yards on 25 carries to Tampa Bay running backs in Week 2.

This could be a breakout game for Bob Stoops’ offense.

Prediction ATS: Dallas

New York Guardians (+10) at St. Louis BattleHawks, 40.5

The Guardians aren’t as bad as they looked in Week 2. Everything that could’ve gone wrong did in the team’s 27-0 loss in DC. Matt McGloin went 8-19 for 44 yards and two interceptions. New York will get better quarterback play in Week 3.

Jordan Ta’amu has been the XFL’s most efficient quarterback, completing 78.1% of his passes. He ranks third with 109 rushing yards. St. Louis has run the ball at least 42 times each game, giving them 23 more rushing attempts than any other team. The BattleHawks could move the ball effectively in a close, low-scoring victory.

The biggest underdog has covered the spread in both weeks.

Prediction ATS: New York

DC Defenders (-8) at Los Angeles Wildcats, 44

The Wildcats have some value as big home underdogs. Los Angeles is primed to have its best offensive game of the season. Josh Johnson made his XFL debut in Week 2. He has the most NFL experience, by far, of the XFL quarterbacks. Johnson’s top target, Nelson Spruce, leads the league with 192 receiving yards.

The Defenders are one of two undefeated teams and lead the XFL with a plus-39 point differential. If it hadn’t been for a Seattle fumble at DC’s eight-yard line late in the fourth quarter, the Defenders would’ve won their season opener by only one possession. DC has a pick-six in each game, a trend that’s unlikely to continue.

The gap between DC and Los Angeles might be a little smaller than some numbers would suggest. Johnson and Cardale Jones could both put up decent numbers in one of the weekend’s highest-scoring games.

Prediction ATS: Los Angeles

Season Record: 4-0
