The XFL is finally back... again.

Making its triumphant return after a sputtering start cut short in 2020 (due to the COVID-19 pandemic), the XFL is six weeks deep and treating football diehards to some wild comebacks, lopsided beatdowns, and new rules that the NFL may (or may not) want to pay attention to.

DC and Houston had solidified themselves as the teams to beat early on but back-to-back Roughnecks losses — including one to DC in Week 6 — have allowed the undefeated Defenders to take control of the No. 1 spot. 

With six weeks of action in the rearview, here are the latest odds to win the 2023 XFL Championship.
