Welcome to Week 2 of the XFL, and I gotta say, Week 1 was extra entertaining than I assumed it will be. Out of the 4 video games, three incuded second-half comebacks that led to thrilling trend. You cannot make up what occurred within the St. Louis Battlehawks vs. San Antonio Brahmas matchup, as A.J. McCarron’s offense scored 15 straight factors within the last 1:30 to come back again and win. They even transformed that fourth-and-15 onside kick to maintain the ball and rating the game-winning landing!

Since CBS Sports pays me the massive bucks, it ought to shock nobody that I went 4-0 ATS. Just kidding, I am unable to imagine I went 4-0 ATS — particularly contemplating how wild the video games ended up being. I do know that playing on Week 2 within the NFL is usually very tough as a result of it is easy to overreact to what occurred within the season openers. I wager that is much more true for a league just like the XFL. Let’s bounce in. 

ATS report: 4-0
Straight up report: 3-1

XFL Favorites ATS: 2-2
