FOX Bet chief commercial officer Jacob Blangsted-Barnor said the Breakers-Generals showdown will feature contrasting styles.

“This week, the top two teams in yards per game are going against each other; however, they did it in very different ways,” Blangsted-Barnor said. “The Breakers are one of the few teams that moves the ball well through the air while the Generals’ backfield committee gives them a consistent rushing offense.”

Breakers quarterback Kyle Sloter — 95 for 156 passes (60.9%) for 1,071 yards and five touchdowns — leads the USFL in passing yardage by a considerable margin.

New Orleans’ Jordan Ellis leads the USFL in rushing yards with 347. But the Generals have rushers who rank 4-5-6 in rushing yards — quarterback De’Andre Johnson (230 yards), rusher ball Darius Victor (213) and RB Trey Williams (203). Victor leads the USFL in rushing touchdowns with four.

The game could come down to the Breakers having an edge on defense.

“The difference in this game might be on the defensive end,” Blangsted-Barnor explained. “While the Breakers have the second-best running defense, the Generals have the second-worst passing defense, so they might have some issues against New Orleans.”
