Saturday, July 13
Pittsburgh Thunderbirds vs Chicago Wildfire
- 2019 AUDL Week 15 Odds: Pittsburgh Thunderbirds +3 -115 / Chicago Wildfire -3 -115
The Pittsburgh Thunderbirds have won 5-of-6. They beat Detroit 24-11 on May 18. On May 25, they beat the Minnesota Wind Chill 24-17 and then took down the Detroit Mechanix 17-12 on June 15. A 1-point victory over Madison followed before their only loss in their last 5. The Indianapolis Alleycats beat Pittsburgh 23-20 on June 29.
The Thunderbirds won their last match 24-23 versus Detroit on July 6. The last time they faced Chicago, they also won, 21-18. The three points could mean something in this match. Chicago might win, but it’s hard to lay the 3.
AUDL Betting Pick: Pittsburgh Thunderbirds
Tampa Bay Cannons vs Raleigh Flyers
- 2019 AUDL Week 15 Odds: Tampa Bay Cannons +4 -115 / Raleigh Flyers -4 -115
Raleigh is one of the top teams in the American Ultimate Disc League. The Flyers have a 9-2 record. Way back in April, the Dallas Roughnecks beat them 19-17. Then on June 22, the New York Empire, the best team in AUDL with a 12-0 record, beat them 25-24.
Raleigh is a giving up a lot of points here, though. The last time they battled Tampa Bay, they only won by 2 points, 22-20. One thing to note? That matchup happened in Tampa. At home, Raleigh should cover. The Flayers are always better in front of their fans than they are on the road.
AUDL Betting Pick: Raleigh Flyers
Sunday, July 14
Detroit Mechanix vs Madison Radicals
- 2019 AUDL Week 15 Odds: Detroit Mechanix +4 ½ -115 / Madison Radicals -4 ½ -115
This feels like a lot of points, but the Mechanix are a terrible away squad. Detroit hasn’t won this season on the road. More importantly, in most of the road matches it hasn’t been close. In their last 3 on the road, Detroit has lost 16-24 to Chicago, 12-27 to Minnesota, and 6-12 to Chicago.
Madison is only 5-6 straight up. They beat Detroit 16-14 on the road in the last head-to-head matchup, though. Not only that, but Madison beat a tough team, the Minnesota Windchill, 22-17 in their last match at home. The Radicals cover.
AUDL Betting Pick: Madison Radicals
Pittsburgh Thunderbirds vs Indianapolis Alleycats
- 2019 AUDL Week 15 Odds: Pittsburgh Thunderbirds +5 ½ -115 / Indianapolis Alleycats -5 ½ -115
The Pittsburgh Thunderbirds head to Indianapolis to take on the Alleycats a +5 ½ dog. The Thunderbirds should at least cover versus the Wildfire on Saturday. Will they stand up to the powerful Alleycats a day later?
Indianapolis leads the Midwest Division with an 8-3 record. They beat Pittsburgh on the road 23-20 on June 29. The Alleycats head into this match off an impressive 24-21 home win over the rival Chicago Wildfire.
The American Ultimate Disc League schedule makers put the Thunderbirds into a Week 15 bind. Facing a team like the Alleycats on a day after taking on any team is tough. Facing Indianapolis after battling the Chicago Wildfire on the road the day before is ultra-tough. The Alleycats cover the big spread.
AUDL Betting Pick: Indianapolis Alleycats
