The UF Team name their top tips for this weekend’s XFL action
After a cracking opening three weeks, the XFL campaign is nearing the halfway point of the regular season.
The UF Team has taken a look through the schedule, naming their best tips for this weekend’s contests.
Here are their top selections for the XFL’s Week 4 games.
DC DEFENDERS -6.0 vs. Vegas Vipers (-110, FanDuel)
Only one of the two XFL teams that remain unbeaten this season, the DC Defenders will be aiming to keep their winning streak going in Week 4.
Reggie Barlow has established the DC franchises as the team to beat in the North Division, after flying into a 3-0 record and scoring the second most points in the league this year.
They host the Vipers who are still yet to land success this season, but they showing some signs of improvement with Brett Hundley in the saddle as he is being to gel with the talented receiving corps of Geronimo Allison, Martavis Bryant and Geronimo Allison.
The spread looks quite generous looking at the Defenders’ early-season record, as they have won their games by four, six and 12 points respectively.
That 12-point win was against the Vipers in their own back yard, as they cruised to a 18-6 win in adverse weather conditions in Vegas two weeks ago.
The Defenders should be able to get the better of a winless Vipers side, with their six-point spread looking workable in this matchup.

HOUSTON ROUGHNECKS -9.0 @ Orlando Guardians (-110, FanDuel)
The current frontrunners to claim the XFL Championship, the Houston Roughnecks should be in the driving seat to improve their record once again this weekend.
The Texas-based franchise made the trip to Florida, as they face the winless Orlando Guardians.
The Guardians do have South Florida alumni Quinton Flowers now on their books, but this weekend could come just too soon for the QB to full take the reins.
The Roughnecks on the other hand have one of the most exciting offences in the league. Jontre Kirklin has established him as a standout in the receiver department after recording 13 receptions for 204 yards and three touchdowns, while former Washington State running back Max Borghi has chalked up 207 scrimmage yards and two touchdowns in his first three starts.
Orlando’s point differential is the worst in the league (-40) by quite a margin currently while Houston top the board in that category (+39). The nine-point spread looks huge value in this matchup currently, as particularly as the Roughnecks look a near-certainty to win this.
