So, tonight should be interesting. We have a giant IDEXX party overlapping with BoPo, so only 2 early games (next to eight lanes of IDEXX) then 5 late games (with 2 lanes of IDEXX stragglers)
Dick’s Picks Vol. 2 (4-1) -3 vs Roll Models (3-1): Well, there aren’t many early games but the top game of the night will be going on. Last week Dick’s was #2 but knocked off then #1 Bath Salts. Now they’re back on top and face the new 2nd ranked squad. Dick’s has been getting huge results from their Yay! pair of Ralphie and Romo, and neither has shown signs of dropping off. Bama also seems poised for a big breakout week. The Roll Models are one of the few teams with the depth to contend, getting solid scores from Rufio and Big Red, and some monsters from Bustah, Snapshot and His Cheeseness. I expect the games to be close, but Dick’s to pick off some close points for the win.
Bath Salts (3-1) -3 vs Flying Buttresses (3-1): Tough doubleheader tonight for the Buttresses. They play a Bath Salts team hungry to rebound after last week (though they will be without Mona Laudley, forcing Bubbles to roll 3). Gutterbot is climbing up the charts for the Buttresses, and Knuckles should grab a few points, but the Bath Salts should be able to pull away.
Lane’s Addiction (1-3) -1 vs Slackers (1-3): With three teams missing the postseason entirely, grabbing wins when you can is crucial. The winner of this game gets a tiny bit of cushion, the loser will be battling to qualify for the rest of the year. Lane’s needs Pistol Pete to rebound, Slackers need Bombpop to continue overperforming.
Wilfork Y.F.O. (2-2) -1 vs Split For Brains (2-3): The Brains are impossible to predict with Precious’ schedule (though Roadhouse is quietly having a very strong season to help make up for the absences). Y.F.O. is always in close ones. I’ll give this to them on a hunch.
Deez Knees (2-3) -1 vs Ooh, That’s Bingo (3-2): Deez Knees is coming off a tough loss. Meanwhile, Bingo is coming off a very solid doubleheader sweep. I think Deez kneeds it more, and will find a way to get it done. Game should feature a classic BoPo old-school matchup of Jerk v Oz.
Hebros (2-2) -5 vs Supah Deep (1-3): The Hebros have vaulted back from a tough start to 5th place with two straight wins, now they face a desperate basement dweller. Supah is almost in a must win situation already, but so far has yet to show that it can win under any circumstance. Can Jewdy keep up his crazy start? Can Probie be the next Yay-er to excel? Can Layne build on her bowler of the week award against two of the league’s best women in VG Jess and McStriker?
Shake N Bake (1-3) -1 vs Flying Buttresses (3-1): Yeah, SnB has been on a losing streak. However, Natro is leading the league in average, and the Buttresses are going to be in the second game of a doubleheader. Dr. Thunder needs to perform better or face a mutiny.
