If you’ve been keeping up with the inaugural ‘re-launch’ season of the XFL and you’ve enjoyed the fun-filled spring football league through five weeks, then you should know that the upcoming slate of XFL Week 6 matchups looks like another round of non-stop gridiron action that is sure to please. Let’s find out right now who’s looking good as they get set for Week 6 and which teams look like they’re going to have a tough way to go. Here the XFL Odds for Week 6.
2020 XFL Week 6 Games Previews & Odds
Houston Roughnecks (5-0) at New York Guardians (3-2)
- Saturday, March 14, 2020 at 2:00 PM ET
- TV: ABC
- XFL Week 6 Odds: Roughnecks -6.5 / Total: 47 (-110)
Houston struggled in its 32-23 Week 5 home win over Seattle as the league’s best player, quarterback P.J. Walker turned the ball over three times. Still, when it mattered most, Walker came through and hooked up with wide receiver Cam Phillips 10 times for 122 yards and two scores. Phillips now leads the league in receptions (31), receiving yards (455) and receiving touchdowns (9) as he looks to get a shot in the NFL.
New York has allowed more touchdowns (9) than it has scored (8) through five games, but the Guardians rolled all over Dallas last weekend en route to a commanding 30-12 road win. After starting the the year as the third-string quarterback, Luis Perez has started the last two games to lead New York to two straight wins. Still, taking down the unbeaten Roughnecks, even at home, looks like too big a task for New York. After their big scare last weekend, P.J. Walker has another field day while leading the Roughnecks to the easy win and ATS cover.
St. Louis BattleHawks (3-2) at Tampa Bay Vipers (1-4)
- Saturday, March 14, 2020 at 5:00 PM ET
- TV: FS2
- XFL Week 6 Odds: St. Louis -3 / Total: 42
Tampa Bay put up a great effort, but came up short in their 41-34 road loss against Los Angeles last weekend despite the fact that Taylor Cornelius passed for 300 yards and a pair of TD passes while rushing for 45 yards and another score. St. Louis struggled mightily in their humbling 15-6 loss against DC as quarterback Jordan Ta’amu was held without a TD pass or scoring run. Still, the BattleHawks are looking good heading into Week 6, seeing as how the Vipers have given up the most touchdowns in the league (15). Despite being on the road, St. Louis looks like the pick to get back in the win column following this matchup.
Dallas Renegades (2-3) at DC Defenders (3-2)
- Sunday, March 15, 2020 at 4:00 PM ET
- TV: FS1
- XFL Week 6 Odds: DC -4.5 / Total: 35
Dallas got man-handled in their 30-12 Week 5 home loss against New York as backup quarterback Philip Nelson struggled after getting the start over an injured Landry Jones by tossing two picks and no TD passes. DC picked up an ‘ugly’ 15-6 win over St. Louis in Week 5 after young QB Tyree Jackson replaced an ineffective Cardale Jones to toss one TD pass while rushing for 32 yards. Now, heading into Week 6, I’m expecting to see Jackson back under center to open this contest, but I’m going with the Renegades to get the win, mostly because DC looks like a different team at home (3-0) and on the road (0-2).
LA Wildcats (2-3) at Seattle Dragons (1-4)
- Sunday, March 15, 2020 at 7:00 PM ET
- TV: ESPN2
- XFL Week 6 Odds: L.A. -2.5 / Total: 45
The Wildcats got a fantastic effort out of former NFL veteran Josh Johnson as he passed for 288 yards with four touchdowns and one interception in the Wildcats’ high-scoring 41-34 win over Tampa Bay last weekend. After missing Week 1 due to an injury, Johnson is second in the league in passing yards (1,092) and passing touchdowns (11) and has the best quarterback rating (106.8) in the league.
Seattle nearly handed Houston their first loss of the season before coming up short in their 32-23 Week 5 loss last weekend. Quarterback B.J. Daniels went14-of-22 for 114 yards while adding 30 rushing yards and two scores on the ground. Unfortunately, the Dragons have allowed the most touchdowns in the league (15) and that just doesn’t bode well as they get set to face Josh Johnson. L.A. has scored the second-most touchdowns (18) and the Wildcats look like a near lock to me as a slight 2.5-point favorite.
