Unbeaten D.C. Gets the Winless Guardians for Week 7
The D.C. Defenders continued to dominate the XFL as it handed the Houston Roughnecks, who remain the top team in the South Division, its second consecutive loss. The Defenders now get a chance to go 7-0 as it takes on the Orlando Guardians as sizable 9.5-point favorites.

XFL Week 6 Betting Report: Rockin’ on the Road
The Defenders defended their home turf and sent the Roughnecks packing. They were the only home team to win their game in Week 6 as the first three road teams won in enemy territory. Seattle, St. Louis, and San Antonio all won although the Sea Dragons failed to cover as 9.5-point favorites over Orlando.
The Sea Dragons needed a big fourth quarter to put away Orlando. In a similar fashion, the Brahmas had to shut out Arlington in the fourth to escape with a 15-9 victory in the Choctaw Stadium. San Antonio returned the favor by upsetting Arlington in their own stadium just as the Renegades did to the Brahmas in Week 5.
And finally, the Battlehawks bounced back emphatically by blowing out Vegas 29-6. The 23-point win was the largest margin of victory for the XFL this season as quarterback A.J. McCarron threw for 236 yards and three touchdowns. As far as the 2023 XFL teams go, St. Louis is just behind D.C. as the best XFL team.
