The Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 4:

Predacons (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
Both are undefeated but only one can remain so. The 'Bums are riding an eight game winning streak into this weekend, but the Predacons look to have the matchups in their favor. The prime time games will weigh heavily on the outcome.

Stiletto Stompers (-1/2) vs. Misfits, Inc.
Coach Bev is 3-0 and atop the 3FL at the moment. The 'Fitz won't make it easy for her to go to 4-0, but the bye week will definitely hit the Corp harder. Plus, there's Willie Parker's toe.

Lightning (-1/2) vs. Yuengling Brewers
The Brew Crew held off a Monday night comeback last week only because they also had players in prime time. Not this time. Of course, Brady is playing the Ravens while Cutler gets the Lions, so this game might be over before MNF even begins.

ray ray haw (-1/2) vs. The Comfy Chair
Neither of these two former champions is off to a great start. And with the bye weeks a factor for both, we'll just have to wait and see which set of backups and newly acquired players pulls his team to .500.

Spiked Vipers (-1/2) vs. Marauders
The Marauders have yet to win a game. I'm not sure that changes this week against Drew Brees and the Vipers. The Roethlisberger/Ward/Reed angle on Sunday night will be fun, though.

And the game of the week...

Renegades (-1/2) vs. Baltimorons
The Renegades have to win a game at some point, so why not this week with a backup QB? Coach Val will put up a bunch of points and then hope that the Steelers don't let the 'Morons mount a comeback. And then hope that Aaron Rodgers throws all of his TDs to Donald Driver.

Good luck this week.
