Arena Bowl XXI will be played in New Orleans, Louisiana on July 29th at 3:00 pm Eastern and be televised by ABC for Arena Football betting fans. It will match the Columbus Destroyers against the San Jose Saber Cats.
Columbus will come into the Championship game as decided Arena Football betting underdogs but that is nothing new. The Destroyers finished the Arena Football betting regular season 7-9 and have been Arena Football betting underdogs in every game in the playoffs. Columbus won its first two playoff games mainly because of its offense and special teams. That changed in the victory over Georgia when the defense stepped up. Jerald Brown got the first of his two interceptions on Georgia’s first series. The defense also sacked Georgia quarterback Chris Greisen on Georgia’s second possession, which ended with a stop on downs.
The Destroyers stopped the Force on six of 14 possessions. Columbus had only three combined stops in its Arena Football betting playoff victories over Tampa Bay and Dallas. They will need to play well again if they are to pull off another Arena Football betting upset as they will be decided AFL bowl betting underdogs against San Jose in this Arena Football betting line match.
San Jose has won 12 games in a row and is 2-0 in Arena Bowls for Arena Football betting fans, winning titles in 2002 and 2004 in AFL bowl betting. “San Jose, year-in and year-out, has been probably as strong a franchise as any franchise in our league”, Columbus Coach Doug Kay said Sunday. “My first impression and my last impression of San Jose is only fear”. Columbus has never gone to the Arena Football betting Bowl so it will be a first for Arena Football betting line fans to consider the Destroyers in the big Arena Bowl betting game. Since the league expanded its postseason format in 2005, Columbus is the only sixth seed to reach the Arena Football betting Bowl for Arena Football betting fans. They will be decided Arena Bowl betting underdogs in Arena Bowl XXI. San Jose has experience and will be a prohibitive AFL bowl betting favorite.
Columbus head coach Doug Kay was the defensive coordinator when Tampa Bay won the Arena Bowl in 1993 for Arena Bowl betting fans and when Arizona won the title four seasons later for AFL bowl betting fans. Gamblers looking at Arena Bowl betting will start with the AFL bowl betting favorite Saber Cats who have experience and more talent than the underdog Arena Bowl betting Columbus Destroyers. The Saber Cats have the more talented team overall and unless Columbus can pull off another major upset, should win for Arena Football betting line fans. Columbus has Matt Nagy but they still face tough AFL bowl betting odds against the superior San Jose squad.
