When Breakers Have The Ball

Stallions vs Breakers Prediction

At any level of football, it is difficult to beat a team three times in one year. The Stallions have gotten the better of the Breakers twice this season but look for Kyle Sloter, New Orleans’ veteran QB, to be the difference maker despite his interception problems.

Pick: Breakers +5 (-115)
