Deontay Wilder is a slight favorite over Tyson Fury in heavyweight rematch by Dave Tuley of Los Angeles Times

‘Most of our XFL handle has been sharp,’ Circa sportsbook manager Chris Bennett said, while reminding that it’s still very early, with Week 3’s four-game slate coming Saturday and Sunday. ‘I think it’s difficult to make too many definitive conclusions based on the first two weeks of the league’s existence. We have had some interest from recreational players on a few games.’
