Here are the opening lines for each XFL Week 3 game via BetOnline along with some betting information to assist you with your bets.

Houston Roughnecks vs Tampa Bay Vipers
  • Spread: Roughnecks -6 
  • Total: 45.5
  • Date/Time: Saturday, February 22, 2 p.m. ET
  • TV Coverage: ABC
  • Stadium: Raymond James Stadium

Betting Notes:

One of two undefeated teams through two weeks, the Houston Roughnecks have been paced by quarterback PJ Walker, who had three passing touchdowns in the Week 2 win and has yet to throw an interception through two games. Now, he’ll get to work his magic against a Tampa Bay Vipers squad that has looked lost on offense.

The Vipers have scored a total of 12 points through two games and the lone touchdown they scored was a pick-six vs the Dragons. The quarterback play for the Vipers has been horrendous and they face a Roughnecks squad that has forced four interceptions through two games. Houston should win this handily.


Dallas Renegades vs Seattle Dragons
  • Spread: Renegades -4.5
  • Total: 44
  • Date/Time: Saturday, February 22, 5 p.m. ET
  • TV Coverage: FOX
  • Stadium: CenturyLink Field

Betting Notes:

The run game was on point in Week 2 for the Dallas Renegades with RB Cameron Artis-Payne coming up huge, rushing for two fourth-quarter touchdowns in a come-from-behind win over the Los Angeles Wildcats. QB Landry Jones did not look sharp, though. Jones tossed a touchdown pass but threw two interceptions and was sacked twice.

The Dragons, on the other hand, may have been blessed to get to face the Vipers in Week 2 because the Seattle offense looks stuck in the mud. QB Brandon Silvers wasn’t effective with an ugly 39 percent completion rate over 18 passing attempts while the Dragons leaned heavily on the run game to burn the clock. If Dallas can’t dominate the Dragons on offense, the Renegades may need to rethink how Jones is utilized.


New York Guardians vs St. Louis BattleHawks
  • Spread: BattleHawks -9.5
  • Total: 40.5
  • Date/Time: Sunday, February 23, 3 p.m. ET
  • TV Coverage: ESPN
  • Stadium: The Dome At America’s Center

The biggest fave of the week, the St. Louis BattleHawks are blessed to have a quarterback who will fling it and put up points. Jordan Ta’amu had an excellent 81 percent completion rate against the Roughnecks, one of the better defenses in the XFL, despite throwing two interceptions.

The Guardians had the distinction of being the lone team in Week 2 to score zero points and QB Matt McGloin was atrocious. In the first half vs DC, he completed only 42 percent of his passes and got benched after calling out his team in an interview with a sideline reporter. It’s a fairly large spread but Ta’amu is playing well and it’s hard to envision how the Guardians correct their issues on offense.


DC Defenders vs Los Angeles Wildcats
  • Spread: Defenders -8
  • Total: 44
  • Date/Time: Sunday, February 23, 6 p.m. ET
  • TV Coverage: FS1
  • Stadium: Dignity Health Sports Park

The Defenders are the faves to win the XFL title and based on how the defense has played this season, they’ll be a tough team to beat. The Defenders lead the XFL with five forced turnovers and three defensive touchdowns through two games, which has allowed QB Cardale Jones to operate without having the pressure to make something happen. Jones also has his top receiving option back in Deonte Thompson and those two hooked up for a score in Week 2.

As for the Los Angeles Wildcats, a lot of their game plan revolves around how QB Josh Johnson carries the offense. He managed to throw for two touchdowns vs the Renegades but finished the game 18-for-34 as he still looks to be developing a rapport with his receivers. DC has looked unstoppable with its defense thus far and has covered the spread through two weeks, so the Defenders could be a solid play while LA is trying to figure out the offense.
