Maulers vs Showboats Prediction, Game Preview, Live Stream, Odds and Picks

Maulers Stay Consistent

Pittsburgh won its second game in three weeks, with its offense having another solid day.

The Maulers have scored 20 points or more in their last three games, with their 23 points last week their most of the season. Quarterback Troy Williams had a strong day, throwing for 243 yards and three touchdowns, while Pittsburgh finished 3-for-4 in the red zone.

Pittsburgh’s defense also played well, turning the Panthers over four times and limiting them to seven points.

The Maulers will have to continue their strong play to take down a streaking Showboats team.

Showboats Get Big Win

Memphis got its second straight win after handing the Breakers their first loss of the season.

The Showboats’ offense was solid, scoring 17 points, but it was their defense that won the game, holding the USFL’s top-scoring offense to 10 points.

Memphis was the first team to hold New Orleans under 250 total yards, limiting the Breakers to 232. The Showboats kept the Breakers to one-for-three in red-zone trips while also turning them over three times.

The Showboats have had three or more turnovers in their last two wins, and depending on how their defense starts, they could be a strong USFL live betting pick to have another good day defensively against the Maulers.

Maulers vs Showboats Picks and Prediction

Predicted Score: Showboats: 15, Maulers: 10

  • Worth Betting ATS?

Despite winning its last two and downing the top team in the USFL, Memphis comes into the matchup as 2.5-point underdogs, according to USFL lines. The Maulers have one of the top defenses in the league and that should help keep the game closer, but the Showboats also just held the best offensive team to 10 points, which should help them cover the spread and win.

  • Worth Betting the Totals?

Just like the last time these two met, the game should be a lower-scoring affair. As both teams show more defensive prowess than offensive, the matchup should be able to stay under the 41.5-point total from the sportsbook.
