Saturday's games

New York Guardians at DC Defenders (-6.5, 47)

Bearman: This line continues to move in the Guardians' favor. I had it at about a 2-3 point spread and will happily grab it at 6.5. It's only a one-game sample size, but I watched the Tampa Bay-New York game last week and Jim Herrmann's defense was extremely impressive. Much has been made of how bad Tampa QB Aaron Murray was, and a lot of that has to do with the pressure from a defense that had five sacks and four takeaways.
