FOX Bet commercial manager Jacob Blangsted-Barnor predicted New Jersey would match up well with Tampa Bay as the Generals extended their winning streak to six games to clinch a playoff spot.
"The Generals and Bandits game sees the second-best scoring defense of the Generals facing the third-worst scoring offense of the Bandits," Blangsted-Barnor said before the game. "The Generals are rightly favored, and low totals means a smaller spread than you may normally expect for a mismatch like this."
