And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 9:

Phys. Ed. Phenoms (-1) vs. Renegades
I'm sure these two look forward to this game every year. Having the entire battle under the same roof has to be fun, right? Their records may be the same but this week they won't be quite as even. PEP is looking strong even with OBJ on a bye.

Lightning (-1/2) vs. Baltimorons
The defending champs have some tough matchups this week as they meet the 'Bolts to see which team can get over .500. It result will depend on their WR choices, the Q situations and if Coach Thad checks his lineup before Sunday afternoon.

Yuengling Brewers (-1/2) vs. Marauders
I'm not sure who is running the Brew Crew this season, but things have been amazing for them starting all the way back at the draft. They're still the #1 and top scoring team in the league and things don't look like they'll slow down this week.

Misfits, Inc. (-1/2) vs. the HAW
Hey, look. It's another game pitting .500 teams against each other. This will be an even matchup and both teams will need big games from players with a II after their names. But the result might come down to which unheralded starter has a big week.

Predacons (-1) vs. Stiletto Stompers
Their losing streak was finally stopped in week six, but the Stompers have since started (and continued) a new one. And it looks like it will be extended this week as the Preds come to town projected to almost hit the century mark. It could get ugly.

And the game of the week...

Dumbbums (-1/2) vs. Spiked Vipers
Prime time games will loom large here, with SpiVi saving a player on each MNF team for a comeback. It's another .500x.500 matchup but it just might be our most exciting one of the week.

Good luck this week.
