2019 AUDL Week 14 Odds, Preview and Picks
Saturday, July 6
Pittsburgh Thunderbirds vs Detroit Mechanix
- 2019 AUDL Week 14 Odds: Pittsburgh Thunderbirds -6 ½ -120
At 5-4, the Thunderbirds are only a game behind the Indianapolis Alleycats and the Chicago Wildfire in the Midwest Division. The Alleycats beat Pittsburgh 23-20 on June 29. Pittsburgh should bounce back with a win versus the Detroit Mechanix on Saturday. But, will they cover?
Detroit is 0-10 straight up this season. The Mechanix only lost by 6 to the Chicago Wildfire in their last. They lost by only 5 to the Pittsburgh Thunderbirds the last time they faced them. The oddsmakers couldn’t come up with a more fair line than this. Pittsburgh wins, but Detroit keeps it closer than 7.
AUDL Betting Pick: Detroit Mechanix
L.A. Aviators vs Seattle Cascades
- 2019 AUDL Week 14 Odds: L.A. Aviators -5 -120
Aviators are only a game behind the rival San Diego Growlers in the West. The Aviators have proven to be one of the tougher squads this season.
Seattle is a decent team, but they’re not on Los Angeles’s level. The Cascades beat the San Jose Spiders 26-25 on June 15. Since then, they’ve dropped 3 in a row. 2 of the losses were to the Growlers. The other was to the Aviators 14-27 in Week 13. Los Angeles should easily cover the 5 points on Saturday.
AUDL Betting Pick: Los Angeles Aviators
New York Empire vs Philadelphia Phoenix
- 2019 AUDL Week 14 Odds: New York Empire -5 ½ -120
The best team in American Disc League this season is the New York Empire. New York is 11-0 for a reason. They know how to close out opponents. But although undefeated, they haven’t dominated their competition.
In their last four matches, they haven’t beaten an opponent by more than 5 points. They last time the Empire faced Philadelphia they only beat the Phoenix by 5, 19-14. In their last match versus the Ottawa Outlaws, they could only win by 4, 27-23.
Philadelphia is only 3-6 straight up, but they can hang with New York in this. The Phoenix keeps it within the number.
AUDL Betting Pick: Philadelphia Phoenix
Dallas Roughnecks vs Atlanta Hustle
- 2019 AUDL Week 14 Odds: Dallas Roughnecks -2 ½-120
Atlanta has a 4-7 straight up record. The Hustle beat the Austin Sol 22-21 in their last match. Before that, they battled Dallas in a 15-18 loss. That game took place in Dallas. Atlanta has a real shot of turning the tables on the Roughnecks on Sunday.
The Roughnecks must battle Raleigh on Friday before traveling to Atlanta on Saturday. That alone could make this a tough match for Dallas. Atlanta is the play.
AUDL Betting Pick: Atlanta Hustle
