The St. Louis BattleHawks are one of the original teams when XFL kickedoff in 2020 while the San Antonio Brahmas are a new addition. If your curious, the Brahma is a kind of cow.
The BattleHawks will be lad by former Alabama QB AJ McCarron, who spent his 6-year NFL career as a backup with 3 teams. The Brahmas will have QB Jack Coan, who led Notre Dame to an 11-1 record in 2021.

BattleHawks vs. Brahmas picks and predictions
Brahmas 19, BattleHawks 15
We still need to feel out how these teams operate together, but I like the Brahmas.Coan had an impressive season to end his college career. He threw for 3150 yards with 25 TDs vs 7 INTs. That plus former NFL running back Kalen Ballage gives the home team an advantage.
BET BRAHMAS +120.
Since I like the Brahmas straight up, I will certainly take the points (although -130 is quite juicy). In the 5 weeks the XFL operated in 2020, the home team won 14 of the 20 games.
BET BRAHMAS +3.5 (-130).
The 2020 season opened 2-2 in the totals market. Its tough to get a read on how well these teams will score. I would AVOID until Week 2.
