The Battlehawks are the favorites entering this matchup, with a solid 5-2 record and a 7-point spread in their favor. With their strong season performance, it’s no surprise they’re favored to win. However, the Vipers could provide an upset, so consider the over/under of 46.5 when placing your bets.

The Arlington Renegades will visit the Orlando Guardians in what promises to be a nail-biting game. The Guardians, coming off an impressive upset win against the previously undefeated Defenders, will look to carry their momentum into this matchup. With Quinten Dormady leading the Guardians’ offense and a strong run defense, Arlington will have their work cut out for them. Can the debut of Luis Perez under center for the Renegades turn the tide?
Despite their poor record, the Orlando Guardians are slight favorites in this matchup with a 1.5-point spread. The Renegades, with a 3-4 record, have the potential to upset the Guardians. With a relatively low over/under of 42, this game could go either way, making it an intriguing betting opportunity.
