UFL Playoffs Betting: Birmingham Is Still The Team To Beat

The first season of the United Football League has come to a close, with the four playoff qualifying teams now preparing for this weekend’s USFL and XFL Championship Games.

Our favorite online UFL sportsbooks have created game lines and updated championship futures each week of the regular season, but they have often not appeared on the boards until Friday.

There is also a lag this week, but at least one pro football betting site has lines for this Saturday and Sunday’s games sans moneyline odds.

USFL Championship Game Betting Line

Beginning this Saturday at 3 PM, the Birmingham Stallions will defend their home turf against the Michigan Panthers at Protective Stadium. What’s on the line is a USFL Conference Championship and a trip to the UFL title game on June 16th.

Lines for USFL betting have been scarce, but we’ve found the following odds that favor the Stallions by just under a touchdown.

Michigan Panthers vs. Birmingham Stallions

  • Point Spread: Panthers +6.5, Stallions -6.5
  • Moneyline: Panthers (offline), Stallions (offline)
  • Over/Under: 43.5
  • @BetOnline

The game can be seen on ABC.

XFL Championship Game Betting Line

This Sunday at 7 PM on FOX, the St. Louis Battlehawks will face the San Antonio Brahams for the XFL Conference Championship. St. Louis earned the right to host the game with their thrilling 13-12 win over the Brahmas last Saturday.

Once again, odds for XFL betting were tough to find early in the week. The following line suggests that the Battlehawks are 3.5 points favorites.

San Antonio Brahmas vs. St Louis Battlehawks

  • Point Spread: Brahmas +3.5, Battlehawks -3.5
  • Moneyline: Brahmas (offline), Battlehawks (offline)
  • Over/Under: 44.5
  • @BetOnline

Who Will Make It To The UFL Championship?

The pregame betting lines for each conference indicate that the Birmingham Stallions and the St. Louis Battlehawks will play for the first-ever UFL Championship trophy.

The Stallions have only lost four games over the past three seasons and captured the 2022 and 2023 USFL Championship trophies. Birmingham is favored to win this weekend and also has the best odds on the board to win the UFL title.

The Battlehawks were edged out of the XFL Playoffs last season after a 7-3 finish that tied them with the second-place team in their division. They repeated their 2023 record this year, but it was good enough to capture the XFL Conference’s regular-season crown this time.

2024 UFL Championship Futures

  • Birmingham Stallions -125
  • St. Louis Battlehawks +250
  • Michigan Panthers +650
  • San Antonio Brahmas +650
  • @BetUS

The 2024 UFL Championship Game is scheduled for Sunday, June 16th, at 5 PM on FOX. The contest will be hosted at The Dome at America’s Center, home of the Battlehawks.

Could the choice of venue be payback for the screwjob St. Louis received last year? Possibly, but the odds still imply the Battlehawks will come up short in the big game, even if it is at home.
