Week 2 Predictions
By FM Robby Adamson
Congrats to the upset winners Philadelphia and of course my own Scorpions for winning Week 1, and a lot of great candidates for Game of the Week – I really thought Becerra – Barcenilla would do a lot better in the voting. The resourcefulness by Becerra to hold and in fact win was quite impressive IMO.
As for Week 1, for the first time in a while, I actually got better than 50% record in picking the matches. In Week 1, I went 5-3 which isnt too bad. Unfortunately, because I am playing this week and it being a Monday match, I will give my picks quickly and without much comment (which to some might be a good thing!).
Monday Matches –
New Jersey Knockouts vs New York Knights
NY Knights Win 2.5-1.5
Carolina Cobras vs New England Nor’easters
NE Noreasters move to 2-0 with a win 3-1 over the snakes.
Miami Sharks vs San Francisco Mechanics
SF wins 2.5-1.5
Arizona Scorpions vs Seattle Sluggers
AZ wins 2.5-1.5
Wednesday Matches -
Boston Blitz vs Philadelphia Inventors
Boston changes strategy and goes with the kid on board 4, but Philly counts with their own youth. A tie is in order.
Baltimore Kingfishers vs Manhattan Applesauce
MA wins 2.5-1.5, though Baltimore has reasonable chances to pull the upset. Its tough competing with a team with a 2500 on board 3, good grief.
Chicago Blaze vs St. Louis Arch Bishops
St Louis rebounds with a 3-1 win.
Los Angeles Vibe vs Dallas Destiny
Vibe moves to 2-0 with a win, despite the Alejandro factor.
