OMAHA HOSTS DENVER WITH PLAYOFF BERTH STILL IN SIGHT
Will Denver be able to defeat the Omaha Heart and capture the team’s first-ever Win?
Dream Quarterback Britney Pereya is a game time decision, but will likely be starting for the Dream. Her presence at the helm of this offense gives Denver the best chance at victory. She knows the team’s system and has great chemistry with her receivers.
Everyone is tuning in to see Omaha vs Denver to witness the phenom- Lauren Crouch. Since her first game this year, all the buzz around the Eastern Conference has been the emergence of rookie quarterback Crouch in Omaha. Crouch displays more confidence than most LFL athletes and her athleticism is something few rookies in this league has possessed.
At this point in the season, the Omaha Heart (1-1) have the best odds the team has ever had to advance to the postseason. Surprisingly, this game against Denver doesn’t have much meaning to their playoff chances. If Nashville suffers a loss to Chicago or Austin, then all Omaha needs to do in order to secure a playoff spot, is defeat Atlanta. With a win over Atlanta, Omaha would be at least the #4 seed in the postseason. If Omaha wins out and finishes 3-1 and Austin beats LA, then Omaha could even secure the #3 seed.
Denver would love nothing more than to defeat the Heart on their own turn to cap their 2019 season, also securing the team’s first win. Omaha is a solid favorite in this game, but the Denver Dream are dangerous and it wouldn’t be a complete shock if they take the victory.
