New Orleans Breakers +3.5

Birmingham defeated New Orleans in each of the two games the two played head-to-head this season, but the Stallions won by only one point, 10-9 in Week 8. New Orleans will contain a struggling Birmingham offense that has averaged only 16 points per game over the last three weeks of the regular season, during which they lost their only game 17-15. New Orleans' offense has averaged 19.4 points per game and the defense will keep the Breakers close and force a Birmingham mistake late, for New Orleans to take advantage of and pull off the upset. Final Score Prediction, New Orleans Breakers win and cover ATS 24-23.
