North Division Teams Clash Again

Northern Division teams will meet for the second time this season when the Michigan Panthers and Pittsburgh Maulers go head to head Saturday. The two previously met in week 5, where the Maulers got the better of the Panthers (23-7) for just their second win all season.

Pittsburgh will try to do the same again and climb out of last in the division standings, but according to USFL odds, the Panthers are favored to win.

Panthers’ Defense Stumbles

Michigan was unable to build off its win over New Jersey the week prior after its defense continued to struggle.

The Panthers are one of the worst defensive teams in the league, allowing teams to average 21.3 points, and in their last three games, opponents have scored 24.3 points against them.

Michigan gave up 24 points in its last loss to New Orleans, having great difficulty stopping the Breakers’ passing attack. New Orleans threw for 314 yards and two touchdowns.

The Panthers also had a tough time slowing Pittsburgh’s offense both in the air and on the ground, so for those making USFL picks, it’s best not to rely on Michigan’s defense for a win.

Maulers Continue Fall

Pittsburgh lost its third game in a row after it couldn’t hold its lead against Houston.

The Maulers got out to a strong start, taking a 13-6 lead into halftime, but their defense couldn’t stay strong and coughed up the lead.

Though Pittsburgh kept Houston scoreless in the third quarter, the Gamblers scored 14 points in the final quarter to take the lead and win by one.

Aside from their iffy defense, the Maulers have also been inconsistent offensively, held scoreless three weeks ago before averaging 25 points in their last two games, so bettors may want to see how they start before looking at some USFL live betting odds.

Panthers vs Maulers Head-to-Head

The Panthers and Maulers already met this season in Week 5, where Pittsburgh defeated Michigan 23-7.

Panthers vs Maulers Picks and Prediction

Predicted Score: Maulers 24, Panthers 21

Worth Betting ATS?

Although the Maulers got the better of the Panthers by a wide margin in the first game, the rematch should be a little closer as Pittsburgh hasn’t won a game since. Still, the Maulers should come out victorious with Michigan’s inability to slow opponents recently, covering the USFL spread.

Worth Betting on the Totals?

The Maulers were able to stop the Panthers in Week 5, but their defense has slipped lately, which should help Michigan keep the game closer. However, the Maulers should still be able to score on the Panthers, which should help the two hit the over on the 41-point total from the sportsbook.
