Generals vs Maulers Betting Pick
This game will be played at Protective Stadium at 2:30 PM ET on Saturday, May 7, 2022.
Why Bet The Generals:
✅ While the Generals are way better than the Maulers, there have been just three double-digit games in the USFL so far this season. Given the huge disparity between these teams, the Generals are going to give us the fourth by covering the number against an overmatched Maulers team in Week 4.
✅ Pittsburgh has scored just 26 points through the first three games of their season, averaging just over eight points per game. That is not going to be enough against the Generals, who boast one of the top rushing attacks in the USFL. Getting to 20 points should be enough for the Generals to win this game by double figures.
✅ New Jersey averages 2.4 yards per pass attempt more than the Maulers this season, and 1.1 yards per rush attempt more than the Maulers as well. They are practically playing different sports early in the season, and the Generals are going to win this game by double digits to prove that they are in an entirely different class than Pittsburgh.
New Jersey Generals
The New Jersey Generals lost their season opener to the Birmingham Stallions, who are playing at home all season long and hosting the rest of the league in the process. Since then, the Generals have beaten the Michigan Panthers and the Philadelphia Stars to move to 2-1 on the season. In this game, the Generals are the heaviest favorite of any team in the USFL so far, as they are expected to trounce the Pittsburgh Maulers.
In order for the Generals to win big as they are expected to, they need to simply avoid making big mistakes in this contest. Penalties and turnovers are the only real path to victory for the Maulers in this contest. If the Generals can protect the ball and not put themselves behind the chains, they should cruise to a 3-1 record.
The Pittsburgh Maulers have been the only team in the USFL not to make any real progress on the offensive side of the ball this season. They have failed to score 30 points after three games, and their hyper-conservative offensive approach has not done them any favors. If they want to beat the New Jersey Generals, the Maulers will need to be more aggressive and throw caution to the wind.
The Maulers will also need to find a way to slow down a Generals offense that is one of the most dangerous in the USFL. New Jersey is one of the few teams that has been efficient both through the air and on the ground, which could pose a problem for a Pittsburgh team whose strength has been its defense.
