Crush at Rampage: Grand Rapids (3-9 SU, 6-6 ATS) swept Colorado last season, winning both games by just two points. The Crush (4-8) have the worst spread record (3-9) in the AFL and just 1-5 away from home. Rampage are below average, but still improved and worth a look in this one. RAMPAGE.
Force at Destroyers: Georgia (8-5, 6-7 ATS) will definitely be revenge-minded after getting nipped at Columbus last season, 62-61. Columbus (2-10, 6-5-2 ATS) rode a wave of luck into last year’s ArenaBowl but find themselves in the Eastern Division cellar – a place it’s destined to finish. The Force upset the Dragons at New York as a three-point underdog on May 18 and on the upswing. The Destroyers are the worst in the league at home (2-4) and in offensive scoring (47.8 PPG). This is a very good spot for an improving Georgia unit here. FORCE. (BEST BET).

Avengers at Blaze (ESPN2): Two of the statistical worst in the AFL square off at Salt Lake City in a Western Division matchup. Utah (3-10 SU) has been looking good lately with QB Germaine and WRs Whitaker and McKelvey connecting on offense. LA, on the other hand, is on the skids with the Avengers defense allowing a league-high 63.0 points per game. The offense (53.1 PPG) has been stagnant. LA (4-9, 4-8-1 ATS) just 1-5 away from Lipstick City while Utah (4-8-1 ATS) upset the mighty Rush here two weeks back and are making strides as a franchise. Now the Beehive State crowd finally has something to cheer for in indoor football. BLAZE. (BEST BET).
