Colorado Crush at Arizona Rattlers (- 6½, 111, LVH) (7 p.m., ESPN2/ESPN360): Colorado has played very average of late while Arizona (7-6 SU/ATS) has had a dream season of sorts, seeing a how they lost QB Sherdrick Bonner to free agency and have had to start from scratch. The owner’s guarantee of season ticket refunds should the Rattlers not make the playoffs seemed to spark the team a bit, and once the Rattlers started clicking, they have really looked good.
The Crush (4-9) are a weak 1-5 away from Denver but with slim playoff chances will still be trying to pull out all the stops to try and get a win here. But, Sorry Charlie. I’m going to cite GamingToday stats guru Noland Parry’s AFL ratings – featured in last week’s issue – and tell you he has Arizona ranked at 60.4 and Colorado at a paltry 44.6 – the worst of all teams in indoor football, for a 15.8 point difference. And with the line at -6 ½ (up from opener of 5½), you can do the math and see the disparity between Parry’s ranking and the actual line in this game. Grab it now before it goes up to the 7. RATTLERS -6½.
