Houston Roughnecks +225
DC Defenders +350
Dallas Renegades +500
New York Guardians +600
Tampa Bay Vipers +600
St. Louis BattleHawks +800
Los Angeles Wildcats +1400
Seattle Dragons +2000
The Renegades opened the year as the betting favorites (3-1) to win the 2020 XFL title. However, after one week of action the boys behind the counter over at the Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas now list the Roughnecks (+225) as the clear favorite.
June Jones' offense looked strong with quarterback PJ Walker racking up four touchdown passes in a 37-17 rout of the Wildcats. Powerful quarterback play is a strong indicator of success and John Murray was impressed by the Week 1 effort, subsequently lowering the SuperBook’s futures market preseason offering (8-1) to the top overall betting choice.
“In addition, our move was further strengthened after they announced the championship game would be played in Houston,” said Murray.
The Defenders also had an impressive showing, led by former Ohio State star Cardale Jones. They overpowered the Dragons 31-19 in Week 1. DC, who was listed as high as 8-1 prior to last week, now slides in as the second choice at +350.
