    The 2023 USFL season will begin this weekend with eight teams competing from four different hub cities across the United States. USFL Week 1 will begin on Saturday with the Philadelphia Stars vs. Memphis Showboats at 4:30 p.m. ET followed by the New Jersey Generals vs. Birmingham Stallions at 7:30 p.m. ET. On Sunday, the Michigan Panthers will take on the Houston Gamblers at noon ET and then the Pittsburgh Maulers will battle the New Orleans Breakers at 6:30 p.m. ET. Before locking in any Week 1 USFL bets, you definitely want to see what SportsLine football expert Emory Hunt has to say. 

    Hunt is the founder and CEO of Football Gameplan, which has been supplying analysis of all levels of football since 2007. He is a former running back for the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns and knows the game from a player's perspective. Hunt's dedication to analysis of all levels of college and professional football helped him start the USFL season 24-18 last year and he's also off to a fast 21-11 start on his XFL spread picks this season. 

    Now Hunt has broken down the Week 1 of the 2023 USFL season and made his spread picks for every game. We can tell you that he's backing the Breakers (-3.5) against the Maulers in Birmingham, Alabama.

    "Another game featuring two new head coaches, who also have a lot of talent to work with on the roster. This will be a strength vs. question mark battle in my eyes," Hunt said. "Can the New Orleans Breakers offensive line keep the Maulers from getting pressure on talented rookie QB Aqeel Glass? Because if they can, the Breakers have the matchups on the perimeter with their receiving corps. On the other side of the field, will the Maulers be able to find explosives? The Breakers defense was talented last season and still has a lot of the core pieces up front and the Maulers weren't known as speed demons on offense last year. This could end up being a track meet, one that the Breakers are more equipped to play than Pittsburgh."

    Hunt has locked in plays for every other game during Week 1 of the USFL season, and he expects one team's performance "to be a dominant one on both sides of the ball." You ABSOLUTELY need to see his picks before making any of your own.
