My Prediction Record to Date:
18-18

I would like to take the opportunity to talk to those of you that blame me picking your team to win as the reason you are losing…. I can’t help that anytime I put pressure on your team they choke! Time to take ownership of your team and stop blaming other people for your teams poor performance! Ah… just needed to set the right tone for the week. This should be a good one! 🙂

16hrs Ahead of You!! (4-3) vs Pack Attack (3-4)

16hrs has been as engaged in the fantasy football more then I have seen him in a long time! I must say I am impressed and they have a team that has been making some noise! This is a big game for both teams as Pack Attack wants to get back to that .500 mark but also 16hrs is one of those teams that is ahead of Pack Attack! I am liking 16hrs team this year and I think they have a real shot to make some noise. A big win here would go a long ways toward their playoff chances.

Prediction:
Check out the Yahoo predictions for this one.

Historical Look at this Match-Up
Pack Attack holds a 12-4 lead in their previous 16 meetings. Pack Attack also holds the edge in ppg, 119.38 – 102.89.


U Don’t Know (7-0) vs Big Papa (3-4)

U Don’t Know is looking to remain undefeated and going for their 8th win in a row! As this winning streak keeps going the target on their back keeps getting bigger and bigger! Can they withstand another week? Big Papa definitely is looking to be the team that knocks them from the reigns of the unbeaten. Not only would they get that satisfaction with a win this week but it also would get them back to .500 after a tough 4 game stretch that saw them lose 4 games in a row.

Prediction:
Yahoo predictions have this as a shootout and I am not sure that I disagree. I do however think that U Don’t Know keeps the streak alive for another week! U Don’t Know with the win!

Historical Look at this Match-Up:
Big Papa holds a 9-3 lead in their previous 12 meetings. Big Papa also holds the ppg edge, 117.02 to 114.93.

 

BIGBOY! (4-3) vs pack slayer (3-4)

BIGBOY! is on a roll. I am not sure how many more times I need to say it but outside of U Don’t Know this is the team I would not want to be facing right now. pack slayer on the other hand is a team I would like to take my chances on right now as they have lost 4 straight! So there is no doubt this is two teams going in completely different directions the past few weeks as BIGBOY! has won three straight. There is something about a team desperate for a win that does throw some caution here but is it enough for pack slayer to get the win?

Prediction:
Nope. pack slayer is without Julio Jones and Matt Ryan and in my book if they have lost 4 straight with them in the lineup they don’t have a chance without them! BIGBOY with the easy win!

Historical Look at this Match-Up
BIGBOY! currently holds a 5-2 lead in their previous 7 meetings. BIGBOY! also holds the ppg lead, 130.72 to 114.24.

 

Bossman (4-3) vs PackerFANatic7 (3-4)

Bossman will be looking for yet another one of those improbable wins while PackerFANatic7 like some other teams has really slipped the past three weeks having lost three in a row. This is a game that both teams need. Bossman with a loss would find themselves dropping significantly in the rankings while PackerFANatic7 can’t afford to have too many more losses attached to their name.

Prediction:
I guess I am going to help Bossman out by going back to my old ways of picking them to lose. This is assuming Gronk plays. If he is out of the lineup then I would give a slight edge to Bossman. I don’t see a lot of scoring but I see PackerFANatic7 coming out on top 107 – 98.

Historical Look at this Match-Up
PackerFANatic7 won their only previous meeting by a score of 142.24 – 109.03.

 

DaUnderdog (3-4) vs Sportsfreak (1-6)

Sportsfreak got their first win of the season which was huge last week. The problem was that it was against the other winless team so I guess maybe we only call it a 1/2 win. They will be looking for the real deal this week as they go up against DaUnderdog that will be looking to get back to .500 on the season. This is a big game for DaUnderdog as their schedule the rest of the way is fairly tough.

Prediction:
I am not sure why I am doing this but I just get the sense that Sportsfreak gets the win this week or maybe it is because I will be watching games with their coach on Sunday and I want to avoid any conflicts! Either way, I am going to go with Sportsfreak to get the upset.

Historical Look at this Match-Up
Sportsfreak holds a 10-6 lead in their previous 16 meetings. Sportsfreak also holds the edge in ppg average, 112.82 to 97.94.


PackMan12 (6-1) vs HHH (5-2)

This to me looks like the game of the week. HHH has had a rough last couple of weeks which is why I hesitate slightly to look at it as the best game of the week. I think this is when we are going to be able to tell a lot about this team and if they are a contender or a pretender. PackMan12 has done enough in 7 weeks that we can for sure say they are a contending team and I fully expect them to be there fighting for a championship come playoff time.

Prediction:
This is PackMan12’s game to lose. Despite the records I consider HHH a significant underdog in this one. Look for PackMan12 to solidify themselves as a top team and hand HHH a tough to swallow third straight loss!

Historical Look at this Match-UP
PackMan12 holds a 6-1 advantage in their previous 7 meetings. PackMan12 also holds the ppg edge, 119.41 to 89.94.

 

Rapids Plungers (3-4) vs teamAlaska(0-7)

Rapids Plungers was able to get the much needed win last week and now can get back to .500 with another win this week against the winless teamAlaska squad. There is not much more to say here other then teamAlaska would love nothing more then to play the role of spoiler the remainder of the year OR maybe they would love nothing more then just getting that first win. A loss here by Rapids Plungers would be demoralizing and something I am not sure they would be able to recover from.

Prediction:
This would be a MAJOR upset if teamAlaska could somehow beat Rapids Plungers. teamAlaska is right now a 40 point underdog! I am not saying this can’t happen but I am for sure picking Rapids Plungers in this one.

Historical Look at this Match-Up
teamAlaska and Rapids Plungers hold an identical 5-5 record in their previous 10 meetings. teamAlaska also holds a slight lead in the ppg averages, 117.34 – 116.51

Enjoy the games everyone!
