Cappers Info is back with another set of Arena Football picks for Week 9 of the AFL betting season, and the game that we are going to focus in on this week is the Friday night tussle between the Arizona Rattlers and the Utah Blaze.
Arizona Rattlers @ Utah Blaze (+8.5)
Friday, May 28th
9:05 ET, E Center, Salt Lake City, UT
Arizona Notes: The Rattlers snapped a brief two-game losing skid last week by taking out the Iowa Barnstormers on the road 52-48. Even though they are 3-3, the Rats have played all but one of their games to a deficit of a touchdown or less. Only a two TD defeat at home to the Chicago Rush stands out. QB Nick Davila has completed at least 23 passes in every game this year, and he has thrown 18 touchdowns against just one pick in the L/4 weeks. For the season, the Cincinnati product has completed 64.9 percent of his passes with 38 TDs. WR Rod Windsor is on a clip to shatter all sorts of Arena Football records. He has 70 catches in six games this year and will most likely top the 1,000 yard receiving barrier on the season this week. Arizona has only forced ten turnovers in six games on the season, but the defense has a tendency of finding ways to keep the team in games.
Utah Notes: After a couple weeks where the Blaze really appeared to be getting better, they fell apart at the seams in Week 8 against the Spokane Shock. A 77-28 loss can't make anyone feel good about this team, but it's fairly clear that this is a different squad at home than it is on the road. Utah's one victory came at the E Center, a 65-46 win over the Bossier City Battle Wings. They also stuck around with the Alabama Vipers in Week 2. We'll throw out that first loss of the year to Spokane because of the fact that QB Michael Affleck was under center to start the year. Since that point, QB Brett Elliott has looked competent. He has completed 58.7 percent of his passes for 1,254 yards with 28 TDs against four picks in five starts. WR Aaron Boone has 19 touchdown grabs on the year. KR/DB Brandon Hampton leads the AFL with three kick returns for touchdowns, and he is widely accepted as one of the best return men in the game.
The Final Word: We're going to give the Blaze the benefit of the doubt that last week's defeat was a product of four lost balls off of the net and not that the team is just that bad. In addition to this, Arizona has this tendency of playing relatively close games. Utah, back in front of its home crowd for the first time since that win against the Battle Wings on April 30th, will want to put forth a great effort. The Blaze probably aren't good enough to get their second win of the year, but staying within 8.5 points probably isn't too much to ask.
