Where Is The USFL Championship
Canton, Ohio Tom Benson Hall Of Fame Stadium. Last season’s USFL championship was played there as well.
After an intense season of football, the Pittsburgh Maulers and the Birmingham Stallions emerge as the final two teams to compete in the 2023 USFL Championship Game.
The Pittsburgh Maulers pulled off an incredible turnaround from their last year’s 1-9 campaign to clinch the North Division championship title with an overtime thriller against the Michigan Panthers, finishing at 31-27.
On the other side, we have the Birmingham Stallions, who are all set to defend their 2022 championship after a convincing 47-22 victory over the New Orleans Breakers in the South Division Championship.
Key Players to Watch
Quarterbacks: The Stallions’ success can largely be attributed to their playmaking quarterback, Alex McGough. The Stallions average a league-best 28.7 points a game during the 2023 season under his leadership. On the other side, the Maulers have Troy Williams, who has played a crucial role in leading the team to a remarkable worst-to-first turnaround.
Key matchup: McGough’s ability to extend plays with his feet and keep the chains moving will be challenged by the Maulers’ top-ranked defense. The Maulers will need to devise a plan to keep McGough in the pocket to prevent him from wreaking havoc like he did in the runaway win over the Breakers.
Point Spread: Stallions -7 (Stallions favored to win by more than 7 points, otherwise Maulers cover)
Moneyline: Stallions -303 favorites to win (bet $10 to win $13.30 total); Maulers +220 underdogs to win (bet $10 to win $32 total)
Total scoring Over/Under: 45.5 points scored by both teams combined
Taking lessons from the regular-season matchup, which Pittsburgh could have won, don’t read too much into it. The Stallions have proved to be the class of the league for two years now, and a solid win to cap off a successful defense of their 2022 championship is expected.
Prediction: Birmingham Stallions to win. I’m willing to lay the points. Birmingham repeats.
The clash of the Birmingham Stallions and the Pittsburgh Maulers, scheduled for Saturday, 8 p.m. ET at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium, will undoubtedly offer a thrilling experience for both football fans and bettors. Enjoy the game, and remember to bet responsibly!
