The Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 9:

Renegades (-1/2) vs. Rough Riders
Don't look now, but our only twin billing (sorry) this year just might be the upset special of the week. Coach Val has a decision to make regarding the waiver wire - drop quality players for bye week fill-ins or leave the spots empty and hope for the best against Coach Bev's Riders. The whole league is waiting on the decision...

Dumbbums (-1/2) vs. Predacons
These two teams seem to be going in opposite directions. And the 'Bums can continue the trend and leap ahead of the Preds with a victory here. Even with G.Frerotte at QB.

Spiked Vipers (-1) vs. Lightning
This year's kings of the close game will be looking for more of a cushion this week against the underachieving Bolts. And with Warner and the Chicago D back in action, it looks like they may have a chance to pad their place at the top of the standings.

Marauders (-1) vs. The Comfy Chair
Speaking of a cushion, Coach Hoss is looking for a seat on the Chair this week. His Marauders are on a win streak as Coach Skrabby's team is heading in the other direction. Both of those trends will continue...

Misfits, Inc. (-1/2) vs. Baltimorons
Lately it seems like many businesses, including our own FitzCorp, have seen a decline in market value in the past few weeks. With two straight losses the 'Morons have even leapfrogged them in the standings. But I have a feeling that stocks might be ready for a rebound. Especially if Hines can outscore Mewelde on MNF.

And the game of the week...

Yuengling Brewers (-1/2) vs. ray ray haw
What has happened to the haw? After being voted the preseason co-favorite to win SuperBowl VII, Coach Haw's team will have twice as many losses as wins with a defeat this week. And with Brees and Tomlinson on a bye it looks like the Brew Crew just might extend their win streak to four.

Happy Halloween and good luck this week!
