The Line: Seattle Dragons +2 -- Over/Under: 44.5
The Los Angeles Wildcats and Seattle Dragons meet Sunday in XFL action at CenturyLink Field.
The Los Angeles Wildcats look for a victory here to get back to a .500 record. The Los Angeles Wildcats have lost their first two road games. Josh Johnson is completing 60 percent of his passes for 1,076 yards, 11 touchdowns and two interceptions. Johnson has nine touchdown passes in his last three games. Tre McBride and Nelson Spruce have combined for 527 receiving yards and six touchdowns while Jordan Smallwood has 18 receptions. The Los Angeles Wildcats ground game is averaging 60.6 yards per contest, and Elijah Hood leads the way with 78 yards on 23 carries. Defensively, Los Angeles is allowing 24.4 points and 346.6 yards per game. Ahmad Dixon leads the Los Angeles Wildcats with 44 tackles, Tre' Williams has one sack and Will Smith has one interception.
The Seattle Dragons need a victory here to snap a three-game losing streak. The Seattle Dragons have split their first two home games. Brandon Silvers is completing 52 percent of his passes for 539 yards, six touchdowns and four interceptions. Silvers and BJ Daniels have combined for seven touchdown passes and five interceptions. Austin Proehl and Keenan Reynolds have combined for 362 receiving yards and four touchdowns while Alonzo Moore has eight receptions. The Seattle Dragons ground game is averaging 103.6 yards per contest, and Kenneth Farrow leads the way with 156 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, Seattle is allowing 23.8 points and 358 yards per game. Steven Johnson leads the Seattle Dragons with 48 tackles, Steve Williams has 1.5 sacks and Kyle Queiro has one interception.
The Los Angeles Wildcats haven't proven to be consistent enough to be laying chalk on the road, especially against a desperate team such as the Seattle Dragons who need a victory if they're going to save their season. I'm leaning toward the over in this contest, as these are two of the worst defensive teams in the league. The Los Angeles Wildcats were just in a game where there was a combined 75 points, and the Seattle Dragons have given up no less than 23 points in four of their first five games. This has the potential to be a high scoring contest. Give me the over 44.5 points.
