FOX Sports NFL writer Eric D. Williams has two bets he is digging for this week's big game.
Williams pointed out that Birmingham outscored Philadelphia 16-0 in the second half to pull away in Week 5.
"The Stallions have been a second-half team all season, and I believe that will continue in the USFL Championship Game against the Stars," Williams said. "The Skip Holtz-led Stallions do a good job of limiting mistakes and making the other team beat them, so I’ll lay the points and take the Stallions to win.
"And with both teams beat up and playing in their final game of the year, I’ll take the under in what I expect will be a low-scoring game dominated by defense."
PICK: Stallions (-4.5 points at FOX Bet) to win by more than 4.5 points
PICK: Stars-Stallions under 45.5 points combined (at FOX Bet)
Philadelphia Stars (7-4) vs. Birmingham Stallions (10-1), Sunday, 7:30 p.m. ET, FOX
