Picks and Predictions for the USFL Games for Week 6 (2022)
Our USFL picks and predictions are back for Week 6. Let’s see if we can correctly predict each of the 4 Week 6 games we have on schedule. We are officially entering the second half of the season this week, so these games are starting to become even more important.
Certain teams have been impressive this year, but others will have to step it up. Only 4 teams can make the playoffs, so Week 6 is going to be very important.
The Birmingham Stallions are currently holding the 1st place crown with the best record in the entire USFL at a perfect 5-0. They will look to continue their domination this week and are looking like the clear front runner for the championship.
Will anyone be able to slow them down? Let’s take a look at the USFL odds for Week 6 to see who they are matched up with.
USFL Odds for Week 6
- Tampa Bay Bandits (-150) vs. Philadelphia Stars (+130), O/U 40
- Michigan Panthers (+255) vs. Birmingham Stallions (-310), O/U 37.5
- Pittsburgh Maulers (+300) vs. New Orleans Breakers (-370), O/U 36
- Houston Gamblers (+260) vs. New Jersey Generals (-300), O/U 38.5
These are the USFL betting odds for each of the 4 games this week. The undefeated Stallions will be matched up with the Michigan Panthers and are favored to win yet again. Michigan has struggled mightily this year, only winning 1 of their 5 games to date.
Their offense has seemed to step it up a bit, but their defense hasn’t been able to keep up their incredible pace over the first couple weeks of the season. If they don’t put together an all around performance against the Stallions this week, they can find themselves as losers yet again.
Tampa Bay was the team to recently beat the Panthers. They won 27-20 and improved to 3-2 on the year. The Bandits were supposed to be a top threat coming into the league, but maybe winning 2 of their last 3 games can get them going in that direction.
The Breakers get a favorable matchup this week against the Maulers. New Orleans started off the season 2-0, but are now at 3-2, so a win here would be huge for them.
Lastly, we have the 4-1 Generals taking on the 1-4 Houston Gamblers. New Jersey should have the upper hand here and are on the Stallions’ tail record-wise.

USFL Predictions for Week 6 of the 2022 Season
- Philadelphia Stars Over Tampa Bay Bandits
- Birmingham Stallions Over Michigan Panthers
- New Orleans Breakers Over Pittsburgh Maulers
- New Jersey Generals Over Houston Gamblers
These are my USFL predictions for who comes out on top for each Week 6 game. 3 of the games are heavily favored in one direction, but I do have one upset that I think is very possible.
That would be the Philadelphia Stars to beat the Tampa Bay Bandits as 3 point underdogs. This is the closest matchup on paper in terms of odds. Both teams have had their struggles this season, which means it could be a perfect time to bet on the underdog for more value.
Case Cookus has filled in nicely for Bryan Scott, who’s been out with an ankle/knee injury. He’s made back to back starts and Scott isn’t looking to return soon. Cookus has helped the Stars beat the Panthers and didn’t do terribly against the Stallions. Those are two of the best defenses in the USFL, so he should theoretically have an easier time against Tampa Bay.

No one has been able to touch Birmingham this year and Michigan probably won’t be the first one to beat them without some serious heroics. The Stallions’ tough defense will lead the charge like they always do and are reasonably favored by a touchdown (-6.5).
The Breakers are the heaviest favorite of the week at -8. Pittsburgh has been miserable all year, while New Orleans +25 point differential is 3rd best in the league.
The Generals are favored to win by 7 over Houston, who is riding a league-worst 4 game losing streak.

Best USFL Bets to Target for Week 6 (2022)
Here are my best USFL betting predictions for Week 6. Since some of the games are projected to be a bit lopsided, you have to pivot to the spreads to get some better value.
The Stars are my exception though this week. You could take their +3 point spread, but their moneyline has great value in plus odds territory. Tampa Bay is a vulnerable team and are barely favored to win in general.
Birmingham and New Orleans are two teams I am relying on to cover their spread as favorites. They have been two solid teams this year and have very favorable matchups this week.
The Stallions have been rolling and Michigan’s inconsistencies aren’t reliable in this game. I do think the under is an interesting bet here as well, considering both teams’ strengths are in their defense.
As for New Orleans, they are matched up with the Maulers. The Maulers’ -52 point differential is the worst in the league by a good margin. They haven’t even been able to keep games close, so the Breakers should be able to win and cover pretty easily.
Houston on the other hand has been able to keep most of their games close. All of their games have been decided by a touchdown or less, so a +7 point spread seems perfect for this week.
