Jacksonville Dolphins vs Queens Royals prediction

The Queens Royals are getting the benefit of the doubt because they’re at home, where 9 of their 10 wins have come, but I’m not buying it. The Jacksonville Dolphins beat Queens a month ago in a game where they scored 79 points, and you can argue they’ve been the better team this season overall. The Queens Royals are in no position to be favored against anybody, with losses in 7 of their last 10 games, and they just got smoked by North Florida at home despite being 2.5 point favorites. The value is with Jacksonville and the free bucket in a game they could win outright.
