Time: 12:00 PM
Channel: ESPN, ESPN+
Location: The Dome at America’s Center, Saint Louis, MO
Line: STL -9.0

O/U: 48

ESPN broadcast team – Lowell Galindo, Sam Acho, Ian Fitzsimmons, Taylor McGregor

The Orlando Guardians will face the St. Louis Battlehawks in a highly anticipated showdown. With both teams looking to improve their standings, this game is sure to be a competitive affair. The Battlehawks’ home field advantage could play a critical role in determining the outcome of this matchup.

In the first game of the weekend, the struggling Guardians take on the Battlehawks. With a dismal 1-8 record, the Guardians face an uphill battle against the 6-3 Battlehawks. Bettors should consider the Battlehawks as strong favorites, with the line set at STL -9.0. The over/under of 48 suggests a high-scoring game, and with the Guardians’ porous defense, there’s a good chance the Battlehawks will contribute the majority of those points.

Defenders (8-1) at Brahmas (3-6)

Time: 3:00 PM
Channel: ABC, ESPN+
Location: Alamodome, San Antonio, TX
Line: DC -2.5
O/U: 41.5

ESPN broadcast team – Tom Hart, Greg McElroy, Cole Cubelic, Katie George

The D.C. Defenders will take on the San Antonio Brahmas in a game that promises excitement for football fans. The Defenders’ strong performance throughout the season has positioned them as a formidable team, while the Brahmas will be looking to pull off an upset. Expect a closely contested game with both teams leaving it all on the field.

The second game features the top-ranked Defenders against the struggling Brahmas. With an impressive 8-1 record, the Defenders are the clear favorites, with a line set at DC -2.5. Despite the Brahmas’ lackluster record, the relatively small point spread may give bettors pause. Nonetheless, this matchup has the potential to be a close game, and the over/under of 41.5 suggests a lower-scoring contest.
