St Louis Battlehawks at DC Defenders Preview & Picks

St Louis are tipped to cover as a betting underdog on the road.

The Battlehawks have been outstanding in the fourth quarter in each of their first two games.

That makes them an appealing underdog against a DC team who are one-dimensional on offense.

  • St Louis Battlehawks are 2-0-0 ATS so far
  • The Over cashed in DC’s only home game so far
  • The Over hit in St Louis’ last road game

Head To Head

  • DC Defenders lead the all-time series 1-0
  • DC Defenders won 15-6 when the teams last met in March 2020

St Louis Battlehawks Form

St Louis boast a perfect 2-0 record after back-to-back come-from-behind victories on the road.

The Battlehawks opened the season in San Antonio and looked to be heading for a defeat when they trailed 15-3 with just three minutes to go.

However, AJ McCarron masterminded two touchdown-scoring drives either side of a successful Onside 4th Down attempt as they snatched an 18-15 victory.

St Louis performed another ‘smash & grab’ in Week 2 too, albeit the comeback was not as big this time.

The Battlehawks got the ball back with little over two minutes remaining and worked their way into field goal range, where Donny Hageman split the uprights to seal a 20-18 win.

DC Defenders Form

DC return home as one of only three teams boasting a perfect record after two weeks of the season.

The Defenders opened the campaign with a 22-18 victory at home to Seattle, but had to stage a second half fightback to win it.

Michael Joseph’s pick six swung momentum in their favor and D’Eriq King’s five-yard touchdown run sealed the victory.

DC then went out on the road for the first time and left Vegas with an 18-6 win despite playing on a terrible field in dreadful conditions.

The Defenders leant on their run game as they wrapped things up with a couple of fourth quarter touchdowns.
