The XFL returns to action on Saturday, February 8, 2020.
The league will be made up of eight teams split into two divisions: XFL East and XFL West.
New York Guardians (MetLife Stadium, NY), St. Louis Battlehawks (The Dome, MO), DC Defenders (Audi Field, D.C.), and Tampa Bay Vipers (Raymond James Stadium, FL).
Seattle Dragons (CenturyLink Field, WA), Los Angeles Wildcats (Dignity Health Sports Park, CA, Dallas Renegades (Global Life Park, TX), and Houston Roughnecks (TDECU Stadium, TX).
There will be a ninth team (Team 9) that will essentially serve as a talent pool/free agency for teams to sign players. Team 9 will actively practice and players will be in game-shape should they get the call.
Each team will play a 10-week regular season which will lead into a two-week postseason. The postseason includes two semifinal games and a championship game on April 26.
The XFL designed their rules to allow for more play and fewer stalls in action. Those changes have been broken up into ffive gamplay innovations, five timing changes, and five common sense rules.

The DC Defenders will host the Seattle Dragons on Saturday. DC has opened as a 7.5-point favorite.
There are a lot of unknowns heading into this season. We don’t know much about the players, coaches, or expectations. This is great for finding value bets in the sportsbook.
