The Houston Gamblers played against the Michigan Panthers in the second game of the inaugural season of the reimagined USFL on Saturday (April 17, 2022) in Birmingham, Alabama's Protective Stadium. The Houston Gamblers vs Michigan Panthers predictionis given below.
All of the USFL games this season were held in Birmingham, with most of them occurring in Protective Stadium, a brand-new, 47,100-seat stadium that opened in the city's downtown and served as the home field for the UAB Blazers as well.
When it comes to this game, the Gamblers are led by head coach Kevin Sumlin, a former head coach at Houston and Texas A&M who most recently served as Arizona's head coach (2018–20), while the Panthers are led by longtime NFL head coach Jeff Fisher.
Given his 173 career victories in the NFL, Fisher is likely the most notable of the USFL's eight head coaches, but he hasn't been on the sidelines since 2016, his final season with the Los Angeles Rams (went 4-9 before he was fired).
Since this was their first game and the two sides had just been together for about three weeks, little was known about either team. However, a number of betting sites have Fisher's Panthers listed as either the favorite or a co-favorite to win the USFL title, so they entered the game with some anticipation.
The impact of the USFL's changed rules was intriguing to see. The potential of two forward passes, extra points, onside kicks, and overtime are among the main alterations.
Houston Gamblers vs Michigan Panthers prediction: Gamblers 27, Panthers 24.
Bet the GAMBLERS (+125).
If one were to compare the head coaches, Fisher would appear to have an advantage due to his extensive NFL experience. But before he went to Tucson, Sumlin did well with the more modern offenses in college.
Thorson has the ability to run and throw, and he has playmakers with quick feet like WR JoJo Ward.
A fundamental "home-team" advantage of 2.5 points is granted to the Panthers. They were among the favorites to win the USFL championship, most likely because Fisher is their coach.
But the Gamblers' offensive was probably more up-to-date.
In the league's opening game of the year on Saturday (April 17, 2022), the "home" team, the Birmingham Stallions, who were really playing in front of home crowds, won.
The money line offered a better value if you anticipate the Gamblers to pull off the upset, but if you'd want a little more space to play, select GAMBLERS +2.5. (-105).
The Birmingham Generals defeated the New Jersey Generals 28–24 on Saturday to win the season opener, which went over the over/under mark by 42.5 points.
The games must have points if the league wants to appeal to casual viewers. There was also one league game left to play so far. This league was anticipated to have heavy scoring. OVER 42.5 since the O/U for Houston-Michigan is nice and low (-115) were favored.
Houston Gamblers vs Michigan Panthers prediction score was 17-12. And the Gamblers won against the Panthers.
