Opposite Teams Clash

Teams on separate ends of the South division will go head to head when the Memphis Showboats and New Orleans Breakers meet Sunday. The Showboats will look to build off their first win of the season by trying to upset the undefeated Breakers.

Let’s check the latest USFL news, stats, injury reports, and USFL lines for Showboats vs Breakers. We’ve got plenty of USFL picks for you.


Showboats Show Improvement

Memphis won its first game by way of a strong defensive performance.

Though the Showboats’ offense has been solid the majority of the season, averaging 20 points a game, their defense has not, with opponents averaging 33 points in the first three games.

However, in its recent win, Memphis held the Panthers to 10 points, turning them over four times and limiting them to one-for-three in red zone trips.

The Showboats’ defense will get a greater test against the top-ranked Breakers, and they’ll have to continue their strong play to grab another win.

Breakers Catch a Break

New Orleans won its fourth straight game, capturing its closest triumph.

The Breakers and Generals were knotted at 17 heading into the final quarter, but the Breakers held New Jersey scoreless in the fourth while kicking a field goal to grab the win.

Running back Wes Hills had a more pedestrian day following his 191-yard, three-touchdown performance the week prior, finishing with 88 rushing yards, but he still reached the end zone twice.

New Orleans had its toughest test of the season against the Generals, but its offense should bounce back against Memphis.

Showboats vs Breakers Head-to-Head

The Showboats and Breakers played twice last year when Memphis was the Tampa Bay Bandits. New Orleans won both games, with the last meeting taking place June 12 and finishing with a 17-6 Breakers victory.

Showboats vs Breakers Picks and Prediction

Predicted Score: Breakers: 35, Showboats: 28

  • Worth Betting ATS?

The Breakers appeared to have stalled after their last game, and though the Showboats should give them a test with their proven ability to score, New Orleans should still come away with a win. However, Memphis should be able to keep it within the 7.5-point spread from USFL lines.

  • Worth Betting the Totals?

Both teams have shown more strength on offense than defense this season. The Breakers are one of the top rushing teams in the league behind Hills, and Memphis’ defense will likely have trouble slowing him down. The Showboats should be able to get some shots in as well against an iffy New Orleans defense, leaving the two to hit the 48-point total from the sportsbook.
