Final Brahmas-Battlehawks Prediction & Pick

This game may come down to if AJ McCarron is playing. He has been the best quarterback in the UFL this year. If he is playing, the Battlehawks should win. If not, the Brahmas will have a chance. He has been limited at practice, and considering it is an ankle injury, expect St. Louos to rely on the ground game regardless. With that, expect a slow-moving, low-scoring game. Take the under.
