The last undefeated team in the USFL will try to remain that way as the Birmingham Stallions take on the Pittsburgh Maulers this Sunday. Find out who we favor in our Stallions versus Maulers picks.

Skip Holtz has the home team looking strong as they make their way to the postseason. If the books are right, this will be the most lopsided game of the 2022 USFL season.

Kirby Wilson and the Maulers are on the opposite end of the spectrum and are looking for only their second win of the season. The odds suggest they don’t have much of a chance for that to happen.

Here are my USFL picks and predictions for Sunday’s game between the Stallions and Maulers (odds via Caesars, FanDuel Sportsbook, DraftKings Sportsbook; pick confidence based on 1-to-5-star scale).

Stallions vs. Maulers ML Pick

Stallions (-630)

It is understandably not easy to pay this much juice. That said, with the current state of both teams, the books are not far off in their predictions. The Stallions are undefeated and have only gotten stronger these last two weeks. In contrast, Pittsburgh came crashing back down to Earth last week after their emotional first win of the season the week before.

The Maulers surrendered over 100 yards to Breakers running back Anthony Jones in his first game with the team. This week, they will get a full dose of Bo Scarbrough who rushed for 104 yards last week for the Stallions. They’ll also have trouble slowing down a red hot J’Mar Smith who threw for two more touchdowns in Week 6.

Expect some fight from the underdog in this matchup, but the favorites should have no problem ending the game on top.

Stallions vs. Maulers Spread Pick

Stallions -12 (-110)

This is by far one of the biggest spreads we have seen so far this season. But, from what we have seen from Birmingham over the last two weeks, this line is fully justified. In their last two games, the Stallions have outscored their opponents 63-34. Last week, they earned a 16-point victory over the now 1-5 Michigan Panthers. The week prior, they handed a 13-point loss to the struggling Philadelphia Stars.

Pittsburgh has two losses so far that exceed this total, including a 24-0 defeat in Week 3. They came out looking flat offensively last week and failed to score more than a field goal through the first three quarters. In fact, 13 of their 16 points came on their final two full possessions. This week, they face a Stallions team that hasn’t allowed a team to score in the fourth quarter since Week 2.

Birmingham should build up a sizable lead by halftime and cruise their way through the second half, locking up this spread.

Stallions vs. Maulers O/U Pick

Over 41 (-110)

It seems counterproductive to suggest the Maulers will struggle yet still pick the Over on this game. Although, every game last week eclipsed this total. All but one game over the last two weeks has topped this mark.

The fact that the Stallions can score the majority of this alone is reason enough to take the Over on this. Birmingham has scored at least 30 points in half of their games this season including their last two. Despite their trouble winning games, Pittsburgh has put up at least 16 points in their last two games.
