Houston Gamblers hand the Birmingham Stallions their first loss of the season, 17-15

Houston Gamblers QB Kenji Bahar got his first start of the season and lead the offense with 164 passing yards and one touchdown. J’Mar Smith had a big game for the Birmingham Stallions with 239 passing yards and one touchdown.

The Generals have won eight in a row since the opening-week loss to the Birmingham Stallions. The Stars have won four in a row.

New Jersey beat Philadelphia 24-16 in the first meeting between the teams on May 1.

“It’s possible the Generals choose to rest some of their starters this week, but I expect they would like their momentum to continue into the playoffs,” FOX Bet sports trader Dylan Brossman said. “The Generals have outscored their opponents by an impressive 47 points this season, including an eight-point victory of Philadelphia in Week 3.”

PICK: Generals (-2.5 at FOX Bet at time of pick) to win by more than 2.5 points
