Odds to Win 2019 AAF Title
Flashback to February’s Super Sunday when the New England Patriots were doing what they do, winning championships. Which of you remember that moment of awkward sadness when the realization hit us that football wouldn’t return until the end of summer? No more weekend gridiron gatherings with friends and family. Absent would be the Monday routine of studying the opening lines for Saturday and Sunday’s matchups. Most notably would be the satisfaction and confidence that our weekend decisions on which team to “get down” on were spot-on. Fear and fret not my degenerate comrades. Who knew we were going to satisfied being sucked into a “Days of our Lives” version of the USFL or World Football League impostor.
Welcome to Week 4 of the Alliance of American Football League.
I write the following neither attempting to shame or belittle anyone who has already invested money on one of more of the eight AAF teams but rather in jest.. fun if you will. Those of you who have won or lost over the first three Saturday and Sunday’s with AAF selection were most likely fortunate.
Because the first three weekends of AAF action and selections on whom would win and cover the bookmakers number was nothing more than an educated guess. The AAF had yet to play a single down of football and there were a large number of unknowns before the first kickoff just a week after the NFL had crowned their 2019 champion. Today, nearly a month into the season, we officially have moved from throwing money at an educated guess to tossing it at three weeks of film, trip handicapping and boxscores.
Arizona and Orlando were elected as the top two preseason teams by most football pundits and portals. A trio of weekends into the 2019 campaign and Birmingham and San Diego are climbing the AAF power rankings.
The “Ol’ Ball Coach” is back. Furthermore he has taken up where he left off stalking the sidelines with a “Just do it baby” (loaning Spurrier an Al Davis spitball) attitude. The Orlando Apollos head into this weekends action with a perfect 3-0 record. Spurrier’s team was challenged by Memphis this past Saturday but the Ol’ Ball Coach tweaked his week-long game plan and put quarterback Garrett Gilbert in a position to be more than a runner. The result was a third straight Apollos victory, a 31-17 final, over the Memphis Express. 21 Memphis 17.
