Based on analysis and betting trends, it appears that the Rebels hold an edge in this matchup. Led by Dart’s impressive offense and their overall season performance, they appear to have an advantage; however, due to resilience amongst Bulldog players as well as historical under-scoring trends this fixture might prove closer than expected.
