Roughnecks vs. BattleHawks prediction, line: Take the Under in XFL battle

In Week 2 of the XFL, the Houston Roughnecks (-7.5) play host to the St. Louis BattleHawks on Sunday (6 p.m., FS1).

Houston quarterback P.J. Walker threw for 272 yards and four touchdowns in Week 1, and we saw why he beat out Connor Cook. The Roughnecks probably had the best overall performance in their 37-17 rout of Los Angeles as 7 ¹/₂-point home favorites, but the BattleHawks were just as impressive in beating preseason favorite Dallas, 15-9, as 9-point road dogs and at +310 on the money line.

Of course, Dallas was without its top two QBs, and it wasn’t as if St. Louis lit up the scoreboard, so I can’t pull the trigger on the underdog here. The total opened at 50, the highest of the week, and I think that’s due to everyone seeing Houston put up 37 points behind Walker.

Since I’m not as confident in St. Louis to contribute to the scoring, I’ll go with the Under.

The pick: Roughnecks-BattleHawks Under 49.
