What's going on? Everybody Anthony here from under at Sports one second as I Okay, promote this to get people in here.
Syria. We got okay.
Thanks for carrying this stream or the replay of this.
Like I said, coming to you from unwrap sports.
And what a great debut February it waas.
It's now Sunday, March 1st.
So Lahtela Ford into March.
I think I talked about this on a couple of previous strangest about a lot of things that have gone down this month.
March Madness is going to be here and be a player or MBA starting to heat up towards the playoffs.
Obviously the NFL draft combine going on right now.
Spring training's going right now for baseball.
XFL is going on, which is what we're gonna talk about the day of the Big Three news.
It started to heat up here as he also continues to to unfold and ways.
And we like it too.
Also realizing I'm gonna keep doing streams here.
Probably need something behind me because white blank walls or not are not thio.
Not you find a look at, but regardless, let's let's get to that today stream just want to talk about the Except Belle.
They talked about the couple games yesterday between the preview and the recap of air.
Just want to talk to a little bit about the game's going on, David me call up.
Actually, I want to talk about it from what I think's gonna happen in game, but also from a betting perspective and what what teams I think you should go with.
Although I have struggled to bed the XFL, I think I'm starting to get a better of grass and understanding of what these teams are looking like and and who's the Pretender? And here's a contender right now.
So let's start with the problem.
Biggest matchup of the weekend right here, the Texas game or the Texas Bowl.
Whatever people were calling right now between the Houston Roughnecks in the Dallas Renegade.
And these are the two teams that everybody that were probably like top four teams coming in.
And they prove that so far I think Houston's prove himself a little bit more absolutely.
A team that might be better than expected, and we thought they would be PJ Walker's obviously been phenomenal camp.
Phillips has obviously been the best receiver right now in the XFL.
Back to back or back to back to back, I should say, for the Roughnecks, NFL players of the weeks they've just been dominant.
They've just been able to continuously do their job and hand down big time wins, whether they be whether they be, ah, by a large margin or whether they be close here.
So last week, I had done against Tampa Bay when Tampa Bay was knocking on the door steps to score in the fourth quarter.
Defense stepped up big had a big I'm wearing the week before against ST Louis, went in by four and then week one, obviously a dominant performance against L.
A after trailing in the first half fare.
So I think the most impressive part of about this Houston team has been that offense, you know, scoring with 37 week, 1 28 week, too, and then 34 last week in Tampa Bay.
And I think that's gonna be the key right now is Can Dallas slow down the Houston Roughnecks offense between P.
J Walker between Camp Phillips? You know, everybody on that on that roster has been very, very tough to stop here, haunting me plant that's the bag and pulling it out from my own lucky sai here, obviously things Mayberry ending on who you're betting through.
But I think that's gonna be the biggest match of the day.
Is the offense versus that Dallas defense right now? Not Dallas is coming off a couple wins of it of its own after starting week, one off to a bad start just because they have Ranger Jones.
And I got a big win a Week two, which was a really big game between Landry Jones and Josh Johnson, making both.
They're both of them, making their first starts in Week two and then, ah, big time win last week as well.
Oh, see Star, look yes, in the Dallas ST Louis game.
Obviously, it was the game that they dropped 15 and nine without their starting quarterback.
Still kept it pretty close to that.
I think the defense has been able to slow teams down so far.
They won 24 12 last week.
Now they've played Seattle.
Um, they played ST Louis week one and then l A Wildcats week, too, so I think the Dallas even has been pretty pretty good so far on just terms of being ableto contain teams and and manager, uh, I should say, like, slow down offenses here, But, you know, they haven't faced an animal yet, like they have with the Houston Ruffin accident.
And you know what they've been able to do on and off on on the field there.
12 You know, right now the line for me is sitting at Houston with a two and 1/2 point advantage, which I think is a little It's a little low.
I think I might even take Houston there.
I mean, I think that he's gonna continue to arrive.
A za gang gets closer and closer.
The game is at four today, so a little bit later.
So I think that's a little low, to be honest, Um, but maybe they just see the rise and what Dallas is able to do it also, Maybe they believe in that defense a little bit more. They have been good.
Like I said, So, uh, maybe it's a combination of both, but I think I think on the flip side of things like the Dallas office has been pretty good as well.
I mean, Landry Jones, already fit and passing yards only played couple weeks.
I think that first we keep ladies little rocky but able to, you know, sit in and actually get that offense going.
And then camera artist pain.
It was really good for them so far offensively.
But it's gonna be It's gonna come down.
No matter can they stop Camp Phillips? Uh, two straight weeks with three touchdowns.
Ex NFL Player of the week And can they stop? Phillip Walker is from the threat, but offensively and dif are I'm sorry, both passing the ball and rushing the ball offensively and defensively.
If he's doing that as a porter about that, I'd be really respectable to watch.
But I think this is ultimate.
Gonna be a close game.
A good game, Uh, probably taken probably riding the hot hand in Houston here from a betting perspective, whether that be the money line or you want to take the points on that.
But I just think it's it's hard to go against what Houston doing right now, despite the defense doing although, you know, yesterday I thought you know, l A was gonna was gonna bawl out against the Guardians and the Guardians came through.
So, you know, it's it's obviously up to your discretion, but just you know, just what I've seen it.
You don't stop riding the hot hand until they give you a reason to.
So that's kind of the way I'm looking at it right now.
I'm probably running with with what Houston's doing, you know, they've just been good all around.
I think that, you know, between their receiving group with Nick Holly, stand Mobley and then obviously Camp Phillips.
Um, you know PJ Walker? They got James Butler has been really good for them at running back on then.
Defensively, I just feel like they've been able to do it, do it enough.
I really like their defense.
Ah, lot of F guys I really like between bunny Chris Brown to Marcus Gates.
You know, they got Kony Ealy, all those guys putting up big numbers and making big times plays Mark Weston Huff.
Uh, just it's hard to ride against the, uh or go against, I should say the Houston Roughnecks, however, that being said on offense for Dallas, I really I really like what you know the team.
They put together their obviously Landry Jones, a camera artist.
But they Donald Parliament probably got the sticks out part Hammer Farm.
That's the six day tight.
And he's been, you know, absolutely, he's from He's got a minute.
I want to say he's been It's hard to stop its can't Phyllis, but he's definitely continues to Kip.
Defense is trouble and give them reason to worry you.
Just looking like a unstoppable, unstoppable tide in right now, and and he's continued. Do anything.
But I think also that, like Flynn, Nagel has been a good receiver formed guy that I think a lot of teams were really high on.
But I think a lot of us in the outer perspective or or didn't watch him a lot I didn't know too much about.
He's really shown out as well over the past couple weeks and I have Jeff Annette, Jeff, Cadet, Um, you know, just a lot of guys to be impressed with Lance Dunbar, think Is it good? It's been a good backup running Bacchus.
Well, just catching a pass out of the backfield, but again, it's gonna I think it's gonna come down to the defense.
I think they have a lot of good pieces.
I'm here that could make some plays on ultimate.
We'll see if they do enough, I think it's definite gonna come down to the defensive line, just bringing pressure to Phillip Walker.
But it's also it's also gonna be about containing him.
Make sure he's not getting outside of the pocket.
It's shooting place there, so we'll see what Dallas can.
D'oh! I'm still gonna go with Houston, I think, uh, minus two.
But I don't think you're crazy.
If you if you think that was here, um, again, just riding the hot hand.
Houston is playing at Dallas, so I don't know how much that means in terms of the home spectacle, because our imagine a bunch of Houston Roughnecks fans will probably be traveling out that way if they're not already in or around the Dallas area.
So I will see the over under 51 a half.
I've been pretty skeptical about going for the over and these XFL gangs, like the under has been hitting a lot, and I know these air, too, offenses that can really be high scoring 51 a half.
What is that about 25.
And I have points for each team.
Man, I think I'm gonna go.
I would probably go.
Probably go with the honor, but it's definitely Ah, hard choice.
I just Tara again, like the under as it seems to be a team so far on the XFL.
Evenly yesterday was like 39 1 of the games and that hit.
I was completely shocked by that.
So probably going with the under, I think it's gonna be about managing the offenses.
I think that I think defense is there gonna be able to hold it at least extent on do enough Thio Hold it to the younger.
So should be a good game.
There's gonna be a really fun wanna watch that one's gonna be.
Is that one on ESPN That was gonna be on.
Think beyond the other station.
What f s one? So that one might be a game you have to stream unless you have cable TV.
Unfortunately, do not So definitely finding a way.
Thio watch Second.
The other game is the D C defenders.
10 today Vipers at night kept the 7 p.m. game.
Yeah, came a babe returns home they're going through right now.
I think there's a big game for moving.
Got boring out last week against L.
And honestly, not to my surprise, I was.
I'm not been that high on the defenders.
I haven't really thought they'd been that great week to week Cardale Jones has been, like, kind of hit or miss.
He's done enough.
I feel like, uh, but, you know, I just I wasn't too high on what they were doing.
I wasn't very impressed with what they were doing, and I think I just showed a lot last week with that when they continue to make mistakes, which is what they did.
I think cardinal through four picks, though they even make like when they continue to make mistakes, you're not gonna continue to be able to hold up like that.
They've made mistakes.
In both games played.
Seattle Week one just barely escaped out there than they played New York team that we obviously know it's not very good or was not very good with what they had in place. Their quarterback.
We do it in that one in 27 nothing.
So you know those winds.
You know how much you know, how meaningful are they like, Yeah, I don't really think they are.
But again, they're two and one, and they have a chance to take care of, like, the easier part of the schedule, ma'am.
Another chance today with Tampa Bay Vipers will be missing a key piece.
And Quinton Flowers, who is away for personal reasons, are much.
I'm not sure we actually, like left the team.
I know he wanted to leave the team and a tape of a didn't necessarily want to release him.
But from what I've seen, just, you know, on social media or or through different rumors, is that he wanted to play for different team, which is kind of weird.
The South Florida guy.
I thought he was gonna root for a line, but that's that hurts Tampa Bay just because he's probably been one of their more dynamic weapons that they have be able to lock him up and so many different spots and make play for them.
So and Tampa Bay? I think they have been right on the doorstep, obviously a big win needed for them today.
Oh, and three in a 10 game season.
They definitely have get something done here, but it's not gonna be easy.
I think the D C defense has been good, Just like last week.
They couldn't they couldn't get off the field there.
I felt like it was consistently turned over after turnover being thrown or turnover interception after interception being thrown.
And, you know, I think that alluded Thio ultimately their demise right there.
But right now the line is sitting at four and 1/2 in favor of Dallas or I'm sorry, Dallas D.
C So which, um, man's respectable? I think, you know, with Wavy Seas played last week and the Tampa Bay's and play.
I mean, they do have Aaron Murray back today, but I think they're starting Taylor Cornelius despite him returning because he's been on the verge of helping them get wins.
I think it's been back to back weeks where they just haven't been able to convert sitting in the red zone and I think ultimately, you know, if they get in those, there's a There's a good chance that this seem to be two and one instead of owing three.
But, you know, I didn't make enough plays, and now we'll see if they were Cornelius, uh, you know, highly performs, you know, quitting flower today.
I don't know if they're gonna be trading and him, Aaron Murray.
And now I don't know if corny, which is gonna have a short leash.
I definitely wouldn't think he would, but they have some.
They have some good pieces in place and they definitely don't feel like there are no and three team, necessarily.
And this is Oh, this is the depth charge. So the same.
And Marty's a starter, but he hasn't been starting.
But I think ultimately it's just gonna is just about forcing Cardale Jones, uh, you know, in the making mistakes, you know, and then, ultimately capitalizing on any anything you can get on offense, you know, this is a pretty good D c defenders defense, in my opinion.
Like I said, it just was hard for them to get off the field and Josh Johnson was on fire.
So you just continue to ride my man.
And every time they were, the offense was getting back on the field.
Josh was able to roll with it seemed like So.
You know, I'm probably man, I think I want to go with Tampa with the points.
I don't know if I bet on them straight up, but I think I like Tampa with the points.
I think it's gonna be a little bit closer.
I think both teams have a lot to play for, especially though, on the Tampa Bay side of things.
Like I said, winless through four weeks, you're pretty much already out of the playoff picture there.
And so, but it's not gonna be easy.
You know, they definitely have a tall task ahead of them just defensively.
And, you know, when this offense does get rolling, they do have a lot of weapons to kill.
Rolling with, Uh, not.
It's not something that's gonna be easy to stop, so I definitely don't want to get cartel and a rhythm.
They're only lost one game in these past the 14 stars.
They're 13 and one, which is still an incredible, incredible accolade there.
Uh, just a lot of weapons on there.
I'm really, really like the back end there.
Elijah Campbell's When someone I've Been Super Impressed with Matty Lem and Rahim Orb out there playing safety.
They have a lot of good defensive pieces, and I think, really, when the defense's is doing well and gets going, I think that's when they're the most dangerous.
I think that's when the offense feels like they can really settle in and feel more comfortable doing their part to help the team win.
So, you know, I think ultimately the the D.
C defense gets any time for momentum for the whole team, and that's where you start to find yourself and a little bit of a pickle there.
So Tampa Bay just gotta be clean on offense, not make too many mistakes and and ultimately, convert when they're in the Red Sox like that's, you know, ultimately, the reason they've lost past couple weeks being on the doorstep of being two teams and not been able Thio get in the end zone.
They're gonna have to do that today.
They put up what, 20 27 in the past couple weeks, right, 34 27 loss against you know, the best team and that's F l.
A Man week, too, is in Seattle.
They boss there by eight points, being around the doorstep So, uh, you know, Tampa Bay's got there first action at home last week.
They'll get a chance to return there, and we'll see what they could do it.
See, I wouldn't expect a report.
He was to have a short leash.
Just based on what Aaron Murray did week one.
You know how awful he was And what Cornelius has done in the past couple weeks being like a part time starter.
Now, you get the fully take on the reins and see if you can pull out the first win ever for attempted a franchise.
That is not to the best start here in the XFL, so I like the four and 1/2 for plus.
Tampa Vegas is what I'm gonna take.
I guess I'm gonna take these Live, right? Let's see.
Um, I said that under for the heat in Dallas.
Can you? And then D c and campus over 44.
You know, I'm gonna go with the over there.
I know I haven't really liked the over too much, but I think these are two teams that are I have to prove something.
I could see a defensive touchdown being in here somewhere.
And just in case they are guards, the blood of one sided.
Let's just go with it.
Oh, I just realized these air.
I don't want a straight bet on those.
I just wanna parlay off.
See? I asked Thio under over plus four.
Let's see how much I have to play with.
Just covered all of it.
What I got? I'm not I'm not a big, high roller years.
I don't think I'm put a lot of money down.
I just want a little bit from earlier this week between Boston and the Utah game.
Okay, Sure. Let's go with that.
All right, Cool.
Think it's been confirmed? Let's hope that, uh, I might know a little bit.
About what? What's going on? The except Alice.
See if I can get these right.
Let me know what you guys were doing.
Um, you know, just for the except games.
If you guys are enjoying watching it or you're already this interested it just moving on, you know? You know how you've been doing.
Betting wise, it could definitely use some help.
It seems like the 1st 3 weeks.
I have got maybe, like, one or two.
Right? So maybe there's my time to turn things around.
But if I don't somebody come and help Come someone come save me.
So I'm not continuously losing money each week betting on the S f l.
Um, Or maybe I should just stop me now.
Where's the fun of Matt? I think that just adds to the excitement here in the exit bell.
And when the announcers were talking about the game as well are talking about the betting aspect of it here, here and there throughout the broadcast.
You know, it's hard not to get off work, so those are my best today. Those are my predictions.
Have been doing the score predictions.
I guess so let me say the Houston Dallas one. I'm gonna go.
20 23 19 Houston.
And then on the flip side of things, I'm gonna go.
Yeah, so I think I'm still gonna pick d. C.
I'm gonna make it.
They want to go.
D C 36 camp, huh? 33.
I think that I think that's how It's gonna probably in now old bias based on what I just bet on.
But I think that's I think that's reason one thing is gonna be a close game.
Like I said, both teams fighting for a lot can't obey at home gonna do exhaust all in just to make sure they try to get away.
And I just don't know if it's gonna be enough, just based on what D C has been able to do.
But, hey, I would love to see everybody get one in the Win column through four weeks.
Don't want to see teams who are winless, especially in a new league and with being a new franchise.
So I think I was gonna wrap up what I got for today.
Happy Marsh, everybody.
I hope everyone enjoys a great Sunday here.
You know, that prepares our gets all the rest of need in order to prepare for another great week coming.
