Four former Texas Longhorns players took part in the first XFL season since the league folded in 2001. The NBA is the most direct sports competition the XFL will have. Fox's Sunday-afternoon game had the biggest audience with 3.39 million viewers, while ESPN's Sunday telecast was the smallest of the four with just under 2.5 million viewers.

In Saturday's last game, the XFL was sprouting something other than mung beans. What we see Week 2 will tell us a lot. Average prices are not cheap for the coming weekend of football. Jones had success with the run-and-shoot while coaching at the University of Hawaii and SMU before spending 2017 and 2018 in the CFL.

Week two of the XFL kicks off this Saturday with the NY Guardians facing the DC Defenders. The Defenders moved from 2-point favorites to 5.5-point favorites, and the Over/Under has dipped multiple points for both games.

How you feel about the spring football product itself might depend on how you fared in XFL betting and DFS.

Overall, it was a good first week, but the same was said for the now-defunct AAF.

To survive, the XFL will need to attract or cultivate star players.
