Middle linebacker is a crucial spot in Madden, but that
doesn’t mean you have to spend hundreds of thousands of coins on a high OVR
As the position you will be controlling most of the time, things like play recognition and awareness that inflate OVR are not necessary, so you can find some bargains lurking in the lower ranges at this position.
So if you are doing a bit of Christmas bargain hunting then
which cards should you be looking at?
