Houston Roughnecks muscle their way into XFL Championship favoritism
A clear favorite has emerged to win the first championship of the re-booted XFL as the league swings into the half way point of the regular season.
The 4-0 Houston Roughnecks, the only undefeated team in the league, have been well supported by BetAmerica players, who have significantly sliced their odds from a preseason price of +800 to their current quote of +175.
The St. Louis BattleHawks, whose only loss came against the Roughnecks in Week 2, have also seen their odds cut significantly from +1000 to +275 since the start of the season.

The odds of preseason favorite, the Dallas Renegades, have moved from +325 to +600, while preseason second favorite, NY Guardians, have been the biggest disappointment according to bettors, with their odds of winning the XFL Championship ballooning from +375 to +1200.
"Our players have honed in on the Roughnecks as the top contender and at this stage think only the BattleHawks can give them a run for their money," said BetAmerica’s Andrew Brown.
