Why New York Empire are a good bet?

The Empire has been terrific this season. Only one team has gone undefeated at the 2019 American Ultimate Disc League and it’s the New York Empire. The Empire has won 14 straight.

On Saturday, they held off the inspired Indianapolis Alleycats in a terrific 17-15 victory. Often New York has outscored their opponents with one of the league’s top offenses. But on August 10, they won with defense. The Empire can use that defense to temper the tough Dallas Roughnecks.
