The Birmingham Stallions Are Favored To Win The First UFL Championship

American gamblers hungry for some live professional football to bet on can feast their eyes and wallets on a full slate of UFL action this weekend. Two games are scheduled for both Saturday and Sunday, with all four contests broadcast nationally on ESPN and FOX.

Also being broadcast nationwide are odds for UFL betting. There are game lines for the entire Week 1 UFL schedule, as well as championship futures for the team that will win it all this year.

Birmingham Stallions @ Arlington Renegades

Point Spread: Stallions -3.5, Renegades +3.5
Moneyline: Stallions -176, Renegades +145
Over/Under: 42.0

This Saturday at 1:00 PM on FOX, the back-to-back USFL Champions will face the reigning XFL Champions from 2023. Arlington head coach Bob Stoops and the Renegades are 3.5-point underdogs to the visiting Stallions.

St. Louis Battlehawks @ Michigan Panthers

Point Spread: Battlehawks -6.5, Panthers +6.5
Moneyline: Battlehawks -310, Panthers +225
Over/Under: 42.0

Kicking off at 4:00 PM after the Stallions Renegades game on FOX is a cross-divisional matchup between the XFL’s Battlehawks and the USFL’s Panthers. St. Louis is favored to win by just under a touchdown on Saturday afternoon.

DC Defenders @ San Antonio Brahmas

Point Spread: DC -6.0, Brahmas +6.0
Moneyline: DC -290, Brahmas +215
Over/Under: 44.0

The DC Defenders lost the 2023 XFL Championship Game to the Renegades, while the Brahmas finished in the league’s bottom half with only three wins. Sunday at noon on FOX, the Defenders are projected to handle the Brahmas on the road in Texas by 6 or better.

Memphis Showboats @ Houston Roughnecks

Point Spread: Showboats +1.0, Roughnecks -1.0
Moneyline: Showboats -105, Roughnecks -115
Over/Under: 41.0

The Houston Roughnecks have only lost three games during their franchise’s history, largely thanks to a shortened season in 2020 due to COVID-19. At 3:00 PM this Sunday on FOX, Houston will host the USFL’s Memphis Showboats, where the home team is only favored by a single point. This projects to be the most matchup of UFL teams during Week 1.

2024 UFL Futures

Birmingham Stallions +300
St. Louis Battlehawks +350
D.C. Defenders +375
Arlington Renegades +450
Houston Roughnecks +650
Memphis Showboats +800
Michigan Panthers +900
San Antonio Brahmas +1000

Current UFL odds of winning the 2024 championship place a clear divide between the top four and the bottom half. The Stallions appear strong again in 2023, with the Battlehawks coming into the season as the most likely team to win the XFL Division.

We mentioned the Roughnecks and their historic success, so are they getting a raw deal here? Perhaps, but their former coach, Wade Philips, now helms the San Antonio Brahmas.

With that in mind, the Brahmas are the value bet on the board. San Antonio’s +1000 odds to win will payout at 10-to-1 if they host the UFL Championship Trophy this summer.
