The Showboats will look to utilize their wide receiver Vinny Papale, who has racked up 248 receiving yards and a touchdown this season.

Showboats Active/Inactive List:

No major changes have been reported in the active/inactive list. The newly signed DE Jordan Ferguson is the only significant addition, but he is currently listed as inactive for the upcoming game.

Score Prediction:

This match-up is bound to be a closely contested one given the current form of both teams. The Gamblers are slight favorites going into the game, but the Showboats’ strong defensive showing last week might just give them the edge at home.
