The Gamblers were founded in 1983. They were a part of the original United States Football League from 1983 to 1985. The team is notable because it was the first to use the Run & Shoot offensive scheme. This is a play that was popularized in college and high school, and was eventually adopted by several NFL teams.

A few of the top players on the team included Tony Fitzpatrick, Sam Harrell, and Kiki DeAyala. Other notable names on the field were quarterback Jim Kelly, quarterback Todd Fowler, wide receivers Richard Johnson and Clarence Verdin, and nose tackle Pete Catan.

While the team did not qualify for a championship in its inaugural season, it did show off some impressive statistics. In the Western Conference, the Gamblers had the best record in that division. As a result of their success, they were among the favorites to make it to the title game. In the playoffs, the Gamblers bowed out in a single round to the Arizona Wranglers. However, the Gamblers came back in the ensuing round to defeat the Stallions 17-15.

In the first USFL season, the Gamblers were led by a player who took the naming trophy at the NFL's MVP awards. It was quarterback Jim Kelly, who passed for 44 touchdowns. Another notable figure was Darell "Mouse" Davis, who served as the team's offensive coordinator. He also served as head coach at Portland State University.

The team's most recognizable signature is a red and black color scheme that is reminiscent of the color scheme used by the Oilers. Interestingly, the Gamblers play at a facility shared with the Oilers. One of the advantages of playing at Simmons Bank Liberty Stadium is that it is not far from downtown Memphis. That means fans can enjoy a short drive to the stadium and watch their favorite team play without a commute.

Although the Gamblers will not be a household name, their two-year run will be remembered. And if the rumor that the team has a good record is true, fans can expect to see them in the postseason for at least one more season. There are plus-sized odds that the team will win the league championship in 2023. For the latest news on the team and its opponents, be sure to check out the official website.

The Gamblers' other notable moment was being one of the first to use the Run & Shoot offense. This was a first for a professional gridiron team, and many of the modern NFL teams have followed suit.
