It has been a two-team race between the Stallions and Generals all season long, however, the Generals, despite having the second shortest odds, have been on absolute fire. After losing their first USFL game of the season, New Jersey went on to win nine games straight heading into the playoffs, and have shown no signs of slowing down.
The Stallions were undefeated until Week 9 when the Houston Gamblers upset them, and also came down to the wire in Week 10 with a 21-18 win over the Tampa Bay bandits. This could be a sign that they are slowing down throwing even more value on the Generals championship odds.
