Daily Ticket: XFL’s best bets, Roughnecks vs. Renegades, more

Mark Drumheller (@x_drumheller) joined Thursday’s The Daily Ticket with Sean Brace on Fox Sports The Gambler.  Drumheller has been completely dialed into the XFL this season, and he looks to earn his third consecutive 4-0 weekend ATS. It all starts with the Texas Throwdown, as the undefeated Houston Roughnecks travel to Dallas to take on Bob Stoops’ Renegades. These teams both carry explosive offensives that continue to rack up the yards each week, but “The Wizard” has the key differentiators that he is betting on to be the difference on Sunday. They go back to St.Louis where the Battlehawks are favorites in the dome against Seattle. Mark takes a look at the pace he expects to see Saturday and how that plays into the St.Louis’ ability to cover a double digit number for the second week in a row.

Drumheller and Brace look at a light NBA slate and debate how long the Thunder can be the NBA’s biggest money maker. They wrap up with College Basketball by visiting the Big Ten & Pac 12. Purdue hosts a Hoosiers team coming off a huge upset against Penn St. Arizona looks to bounce back on the road against USC after a heart-breaking loss to Oregon.

Today’s recap includes:

  • Where June Jones is far ahead of Bob Stoops and why it will be a factor on Sunday
  • Surprising stats that make Seattle a live dog in St. Louis
  • Sacramento’s chances of shooting their way to a cover in Oklahoma City
  • Why motivation will be a key factor in the Purdue versus Indiana match-up
