Can You Bet On The XFL? Everything Sports Bettors Need To Know Following Its First Week Of Action
We’re in that weird time as sports fans where not much is really going on. With the Chiefs defeat of the Eagles in Super Bowl LVII came the end of the NFL season, and pitchers and catchers are just now reporting to Spring Training so we won’t have MLB action for at least another few months.
Sure, the NHL and NBA regular seasons are in full swing, but those leagues truly don’t get the juices flowing until the postseason. So, now what are we supposed to bet on?
Well, let me introduce you (or…reintroduce you, I guess?) to the XFL.
The XFL Is Back
Yes, you read that correctly–there is professional football being played in the US right now, primed and ready for your unwavering attention. The revamped XFL debuted on Saturday, February 18th, as the Vegas Vipers took on the Arlington Renegades.
There was one other game on Saturday, between the Houston Roughnecks and the Orlando Guardians, and the remaining two games were played on Sunday.
