The Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 7:

Lightning (-1/2) vs. Predacons
What's happening with the Preds? After a great start to the season they have lost three in a row. And the Lightning have been surprising opponents left and right, but it won't be a surprise if they win this week.

Misfits, Inc. (-1) vs. ray ray haw
Both the 'Fitz and the Eagles are looking to rebound from last week's tough losses. This battle should be a good one, but we'll have to wait until McNabb leads Philly on MNF to find out who wins. They play the Redskins, so it should be an easy victory for both of Coach Tim-A's teams. Err...

Stiletto Stompers (-1) vs. The Comfy Chair
No shoes on the furniture. The Stompers have been galloping their way to a great first six weeks and they sit atop the 3FL North. They are looking tough this week, but it doesn't hurt that the Chair are starting three WRs that don't even start on their NFL teams.

Marauders (-1/2) vs. Renegades
Both of these teams are better than their records indicate, but the Renegades have had a little more bad luck. It's going to be a tight matchup. Coach Hoss mentioned in his weekly press conference that Jeff Reed will indeed be the starting kicker for the Marauders this week while he and his staff gather evidence about last week's incident.

Baltimorons (-1/2) vs. Spiked Vipers
The Steve Smiths get to play against each other this week! Even matchups, even teams and even streaks (although in the opposite direction) make this a great one to watch. If the Vipers were smart they'd pick up whoever runs back kicks for Indianapolis.

And the game of the week...

Yuengling Brewers (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
How interesting - the Brewers scored a ton of points last week but the 'Bums have only lost one game in the past 11 weeks. And they have a combined five players going on MNF. The season's first tie, anyone?

Good luck this week.
