The United States Football League, or USFL, kicked off its inaugural 2022 season on April 16, 2022. The eight-team league will play a 10-week season with two playoff rounds in order to determine a champion. The season will end on July 3, 2022.
The eight-team league will be divided into two divisions: North and South. The former will be made up of the Michigan Panthers, the New Jersey Generals, the Philadelphia Stars and the Pittsburgh Maulers.
Meanwhile, the South will host the Birmingham Stallions, Houston Gamblers, New Orleans Breakers and Tampa Bay Bandits.
You could argue that the Stallions have the biggest fan base as the whole USFL regular season will be played at Protective Stadium and Legion Field, both located in Birmingham Alabama. If you’re around the area and have $10 to spare you can buy a ticket for a game, with kids under the age of 15 free of charge.
Down below, we’ll explain the betting options available but before, we get into the odds and specifics take into account that the new Spring football league has changed some rules in order to bolster the offense and make games more entertaining.
Amongst some of the most important differences, remember that teams can go for a three-point conversion and teams can execute two forward passes on a single play. Also, onside kicks and overtime have some tweaks.
What Are the Odds?
The Championship Game appears far away but the betting odds are already available. We’ll be tracking the USFL futures odds here throughout the season as the quest for the USFL’s first champion has commenced. Let’s take a look at the most recent odds from FanDuel.
