Birmingham Stallions -4.5

Birmingham finished the regular season with the best overall record in the USFL at 9-1 which was tied with New Jersey. The Stallions defeated Philadelphia during the regular season 30-17 in Week 5. Birmingham has a powerful offense led by quarterback J’Mar Smith, with 1,572 yards passing, 10 touchdowns and six interceptions and wide receiver Victor Bolden Jr who in nine regular-season games, had 1,209 yards receiving. Birmingham's strong offense that was second in scoring during the regular season at 21.3 points per game and a defense that allowed an average of only 15.1 points per game during the regular season will be too much for the injury-riddled Philadelphia Stars. Final Score Prediction, Birmingham Stallions win and cover ATS 33-14.
