TAMPA BAY, Fla. – Week 3 of the XFL season is sure to have sports bettors very active as several key matchups take place. Several games have very long odds for the underdog, leading to major payoffs for some lucky XFL bettors if an upset takes place.
The Houston Roughnecks and the DC Defenders are the only undefeated teams left, with both teams looking to keep the streak alive and asserting themselves as the team to beat this season.
Tampa Hosts Houston
The first game of the weekend for XFL Week 3 will see the Tampa Bay Vipers host the Houston Roughnecks. The Vipers have successfully lost both of their games this season where they were the favorites going in.
Sportsbooks seem to have finally moved on from them, as in Saturday’s game, they are the +210 underdogs. The Roughnecks are -280 favorites.
Odds For Houston Roughnecks Vs. Tampa Bay Vipers:
- Houston Roughnecks -6.5 (-110) -280 Over 45.5(-105)
- Tampa Bay Vipers +6.5(-110) +210 Under 45.5(-115)
The Roughnecks have shown themselves to be a strong team on both the offensive and defensive ends of the game. The first two Star of the Week awards have been awarded to both their QB P.J Walker, and WR Cam Philips.
The team’s success has their mindset fully focused on winning the championship, as head coach June Jones expressed the team’s dedication to protecting home field as well as making things difficult for opponents at away games.
“To be a championship team, you have to win your games at home and you have to steal a couple on the road,” said Jones.
On the other side of the field, the Vipers offense has been completely stagnant. Over the course of two games they have only scored one touchdown and are still struggling at the QB position.
Their starting QB Aaron Murray is out with a foot injury and backup QBs Quinton Flowers and Taylor Cornelius have struggled all season. This game is looking to be Houston’s to lose as the momentum and consistency is on their side.

The St Louis BattleHawks host the New York Guardians with St. Louis coming in as -475 favorites. And the DC Defenders will be facing the LA Wildcats. The Defenders are -385 favorites.
