DC Defenders at Memphis Showboats Predictions & Tips

DC are tipped to cover the spread as they win on the road.

The Defenders boast the better defense and their offense should enjoy some success against the worst defense in the entire UFL.

  • Memphis Showboats are on a 7-game losing run
  • Memphis Showboats have an average scoring margin of -11.9 points
  • The 2 teams scored a combined 36.2 points per game
  • 3 of DC Defenders’ last 5 games have produced under 46.0 total points

Head To Head

  • This is the first ever meeting between the two teams

DC Defenders Form

DC are out of the postseason hunt, having lost back-to-back games to fall to 3-5 for the season.

The Defenders made it all the way to the XFL Championship a year ago, but got off to a losing start in the UFL as they were beaten 27-12 in San Antonio.

They rebounded to beat Houston 23-18 at home and Arlington 29-28 on the road, but it has largely been all downhill for them since then.

DC were beaten 20-18 at Birmingham and were then blown out at home by St Louis, losing 45-12 to the Battlehawks.

The Defenders did avoid a third straight defeat by beating San Antonio 18-12, but they quickly returned to losing ways as they were beaten 22-9 by Michigan and 26-21 at St Louis.

Memphis Showboats Form

Memphis go into this game having lost seven consecutive games to leave themselves with a 1-7 record.

The Showboats made a winning start to the season as they won 18-12 in Houston, but they have not managed a single victory since then.

They blew a late lead to lose 20-19 to San Antonio in their home opener, before going out on the road to lose 33-14 in Birmingham and 32-17 at St Louis.

Memphis then returned home for back-to-back games and were beaten 35-18 by Michigan and 39-21 by Birmingham as their skid continued.

The Showboats have not stopped the rot on the road either, following up a 47-23 defeat in Arlington with a 24-18 defeat at Michigan.


Neither team is headed to the playoffs, but DC have offered a few more reasons for optimism.

Defensively they have done a decent job this season, unlike Memphis, so we lean towards the Defenders on the road.
