Each Team Mired in Skid
Two teams in the midst of losing skids will try to put an end to them when the Michigan Panthers and New Jersey Generals meet on Sunday. The Panthers have the longest losing streak in the USFL at four games while New Jersey has struggled as well, losing its last three games. According to USFL odds, though, the Generals are a heavy favorite in the matchup.
Panthers Continue Fall
After starting the season 2-0, Michigan lost its fourth straight due to another disappointing defensive performance.
The Panthers are third-worst in the league, allowing 20.7 points a game, but in their last four games, they have allowed opponents to score 26.8 points a game.
Michigan had a tough time slowing the Stallions in its last game, allowing 312 total yards for 27 points, with Birmingham picking up 190 yards on the ground.
The Panthers will want to avenge their first loss to New Jersey after it kicked off their losing streak, but with the way their defense is playing, it’s tough to take them in a USFL prediction.
Generals: Offense Sputters
New Jersey has the second-longest losing streak in the USFL as its offense has continued to decline.
The Generals lead the league in rushing yards with 151.7 a game, but in their last loss, they only managed 69 yards on the ground.
New Jersey was held to 231 total yards for 10 points, tying its lowest point total and marking its lowest yardage total of the season.

The Generals will have the opportunity to bounce back offensively against the Panthers. They recorded 377 yards for 28 points in the first matchup, but it’s probably best to see how they start and take advantage of USFL live betting odds in the rematch.

Panthers vs Generals Picks and Prediction
Predicted Score: Generals 24, Panthers 10
Worth Betting ATS?
Both teams have faltered since they first met in Week 3, but the end result should still be the same. Though New Jersey’s offense has fallen off recently, it has a good chance to show improvement against a struggling Michigan defense, helping the Generals cover the seven-point spread from USFL lines.
Worth Betting the Totals?
Two of the league’s worst teams go head to head in what should be a lower-scoring game than the first time the two met. The Panthers have been unable to score for the better part of the season while the Generals’ offense has slipped as well, which should leave the game under the 39-point total from the sportsbook.
