I took it on the chin last week going a dismal 1-3 to drop my overall record under the 500 mark at 11-13. Let’s bounce back this week!

Orlando @ Atlanta +8.5: Orlando will look to bounce back after suffering their first loss last week, while the Legends will look to bounce back after getting pasted by the Commanders at home. I think the Apollos will be hitting on all cylinders this week as they take care of a divisional opponent that they handle easily in Week 1.

Salt Lake @ San Antonio – 5: The Commanders return home hot after a four-week road trip to face the Stallions who looked sharp in their Week 6 victory over Memphis. Despite the Stallions looking better with a solid defense, I like the Commanders to cover in their first game in front of the home crowd in over a month.

San Diego @ Arizona -3.5: Arizona returns home after handing Orlando their first defeat of the season. San Diego has yet to win on the road and I think this trend continues as the Hotshots cover behind a well balanced offensive attack.

Birmingham @ Memphis +2.5: This line appears to be light with the revived Iron offense and tough D. Brandon Silvers will get the start, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see Johnny Football make an appearance. My gut says the Iron, but I see something strange happening in this one as the Express cover.

I was finally able to climb over the 500 mark with a successful 3-1 week last week. My lone miss was the Iron/Legends game as the Iron pulled away in the second half.

Orlando @ Salt Lake +5.5: This game has the highest point total of the week as I’m expecting a high scoring affair. You know the Apollos will be slinging it all over the field, but I’m expecting the Stallions to also be able to move the ball and keep this game close in front of the home crowd. I like the Stallions to cover.

San Diego @ Memphis +5.5: The Fleet travel East after two home wins to take on the winless Express. The Express will turn the offense over to Zach Mettenberger who had a strong showing in the 2nd half of last weeks game. The Fleet have a bruising running attack that will keep the chains moving, but I like the tenacity of Memphis front seven to hold them in check some. Look for the Express to pull the upset and win their first game.

San Antonio @ Birmingham -5.5: The Commanders hit the road again after being manhandled last week in San Diego. The Iron have the leagues stingiest defense and seem to be putting things together offensively. The Iron will pull away in the second half and cover the number.

Atlanta @ Arizona – 10.5: The Legends travel out West to take on the Hotshots. Arizona will look to get back to their winning ways and I expect them to do so in front of the home crowd with a balanced offensive game plan. The Legends play a physical D, but they make too many mistakes offensively to keep this close. The Hotshots roll in this one.
