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

Stiletto Stompers (-1/2) vs. Predacons
The Preds just handed the Lightning their first loss in an entire regular season worth of games. But don't crown them just yet - literally ANY OTHER TEAM would have beaten the Bolts last week. This game will be extremely close and run through all NFL game times. It's just a shame that the Stompers don't have Mahomes or Kamara available to tip the scales even more.

Baltimorons (-1/2) vs. Yuengling Brewers
Drew's squad picked up an important victory last week and may earn a second W in a row against a top-tier opponent. That is if all of his Qs turn out to be active on Sunday. Meanwhile the Brew Crew will try to make do with all of their Falcons on a bye (while their head coach probably gets fired).

the HAW (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
Ok, hear me out. I realize that the CAPS are in last place in the league with only five games until the playoffs. But they are only one game out of a postseason spot and have scored the third highest point total this year. Take a quick look at their lineup and tell me that you'd bet against them to play in week 14.

Lightning (-1/2) vs. Marauders
Now that the streak is over it might be time for the Bolts to concentrate on the postseason. And do they really want to keep the #1 seed? The Marauders will put up a good fight, but this may end up as the first win in a new Lightning streak. RB vs. RB on Sunday night will be the highlight.

Spiked Vipers (-1/2) vs. Misfits, Inc.
SpiVi remains our top scoring team (by more than 20 points) and their average PPW might actually go up after this game. It will be a RB show, with their combined backfields projected to put up more than 60 combined points. The Corporation has multiple bye week fill-ins to fill and that might be just too much to overcome.

And the game of the week...

Phys. Ed. Phenoms (-1/2) vs. Renegades
Our annual household matchup is the perfect GOTW for this week. PEP has been in the league since 2015 and this is the fifth matchup between the spouses. Coach Greg has won the previous four. The Renegades have a chance to finally win one this week (unless they forget to take the injured Chase Edmonds out of their starting lineup before tonight's game).

Happy Halloween and good luck this week!
