FORECAST:

 

MONSTERS own the 8-Balls and look to move on in this WildCard round matchup; but the 8Balls look to use their 1st playoff appearance to destroy the Monsters domination over them. On paper the 8Balls do have the advantage in all but receiver, but don’t look for the Monsters to hand them anything.

FORECAST:

 

Gangsters have a tough matchup in their 1st ever playoff appearance. They say Defense travels and the Gangsters sure have a great D. On the other hand the DOOM have all world RB in AP and look to ride that running game to the Conference championship. Doom have won all but one of their 14 meetings (the 1 was the last meeting), it may be a bit much for the Gangsters to overcome.
