VooDoo at Storm: New Orleans (7-3 ATS/SU, +7.6 PPG) is the most improved and surprising team in the AFL while Tampa Bay (3-5, -2.6 PPG) may be the most disappointing. Nobody but the Blaze have a worse ATS record than the Storm (2-6). Although TB swept the season series last year, that was then and this is now. VOODOO.
SaberCats at Rattlers: San Jose (5-5, 4-6 ATS) is slowly waking from its slumber but is surely the class of the West. Last year in Phoenix, the champs won this game, 56-49 when the Rattlers (4-5 SU/ATS) had a much better roster. This year, Arizona is being outscored by its’ opponents by eight points per game. BEST BET: SABERCATS.

Crush at Blaze: Colorado (4-5, 3-6 ATS) has had an extremely poor season but there is no team with worse numbers in the AFL than the Blaze (1-9, 2-7-1 ATS, -7.9 PPG). Last year in Denver, Utah crushed the Crush, 51-14, meaning Elway’s boys will want revenge. CRUSH.

Soul at Force (ESPN2): Another revenge game here as the Force (3-5, 2-6 ATS) tortured the Soul, 57-49 last year. This season, Philadelphia (9-1, 7-3 ATS, +14.5 PPG) is the belle of the ball and backup QB D’Orazio has turned out to be just as valuable as starter Graziani. SOUL.
