And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 7:

Spiked Vipers (-1) vs. Stiletto Stompers
The Stompers won last week for the first time since the 2017 regular season. But it looks like they'll start a new losing streak this week, with Aaron Rodgers on a bye and all those injuries.

Renegades (-1/2) vs. Misfits, Inc.
This battle of the bottom three is the first step toward the playoffs for the winner. The loser will have an uphill climb with less than half of the season left. Mahomes gives FitzCorp the advantage, but they'll also have to replace all those bye week players.

Dumbbums (-1/2) vs. Predacons
The Preds just turned in their second MNF comeback in a row to stay atop the standings. But this week will be different, even with Big Ben on the 'Bums bench. You know, since Coach Sinkerbeam doesn't have any players in the Monday night game.

Yuengling Brewers (-1/2) vs. Lightning
The Brew Crew scored 131 points again last week, tying themselves on the weekly scores superlatives list. They might match that total again. Can you believe that neither of these teams has a single player on a bye this week? Well, I guess Rishard Matthews kinda has a bye every week...

Phys. Ed. Phenoms (-1/2) vs. the HAW
Coach HAW's team scored more points last week than any team has ever scored in a single game in our history. By 11 points. They can't possibly do that again this week, right? And PEP is ready to strike after letting one get away with less than two minutes to go on MNF.

And the game of the week...

Baltimorons (-1/2) vs. Marauders
These two teams enter this game with 4-2 records and point totals that differ by only one. This matchup will also be even, mostly because the 'Morons have WR issues and the Marauders have RB issues. Bye weeks and injuries will make things very interesting.

Good luck this week.
