3FL Notes: S12: Week 6 Preview

The Marauders kept winning, the Stompers kept losing, and the Renegades posted the most weekly points in three years. Plus, the Brewers are still on pace to break the season total points record.

The next two months should be very interesting.

Bye Week: Panthers, Bears, Jaguars, Saints

And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 6:

The Comfy Chair (-1/2) vs. Stiletto Stompers
The Stompers have fallen to 0-5, but things are going to be very close this week against the Chair. The matchups are even and it should be a great game. But Willis McGehee will score just enough points on MNF to keep the furniture ahead of the winless footwear.

THE Haw (-1/2) vs. Marauders
The Marauders got away with one against the Preds, but with Cam Newton on a bye it may make this the week they earn their first loss. The CAPs definitely have the roster to get this win - as long as they pick the right Defense. And everyone is going to need to make it through a bunch of prime time players.

Misfits, Inc. (-1/2) vs. Baltimorons
It's been a rough start of the year for FitzCorp. They only have one win and are at the bottom of their division. The 'Morons have a winning record and are at the top of their division. But the Corporation has scored 43 more points in 2012 than their game counterpart. Is this the week where it starts to even out and make sense? For these two anyway...

Lightning (-1) vs. Predacons
Interesting fact - the Preds would have defeated the undefeated Marauders last week if they had started Jay Cutler. It doesn't seem like it matters who they start this week. The Bolts are second in the league in scoring. The Preds are last, and a turnaround is nowhere in sight.

Spiked Vipers (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
The 'Bums have a shot at an upset this week, especially with Drew Brees on a bye. We'll know plenty more after tonight's Steelers game (when 1/3 of Coach Coaldog's team is on the field). But it's more likely that the other prime time games hold the keys to this matchup.

And the game of the week...

Yuengling Brewers (-1/2) vs. Renegades
The Brewers have been a juggernaut all year. The Renegades have been on the rise and scored almost 120 points last week. This one is going to be great. And it's going to come down to Sunday night. Unless the Brewers forget to start a Defense - then all of this means nothing and I want to switch my pick.

Good luck this week.
