And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 13:

Misfits, Inc. (-1/2) vs. Marauders
This is one of two matchups this week without playoff implications. Both of these teams have already qualified, so there won't be too much drama. But it will let us know if FitzCorp will defend the title from the top spot or not. Can they break the curse? Do they even want to try?

Spiked Vipers (-1/2) vs. the HAW
There is also no playoff drama to be had here either, as both teams already punched their postseason tickets weeks ago. The excitement will instead come from watching SpiVi's point total. If they score 78 or more this week they'll set the league record for team points in a season. It's going to be a close game too, with players in every game through MNF.

Predacons (-1/2) vs. Lightning
They may be in 11th place, but the Bolts still have shot at playing next week. They need a win here and some help, though. The Preds have been trending downward and have scored a lower point total every week for the past five games. Maybe Coach Thad's team can pull out two surprises in a row?

Renegades (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
This might be our best matchup of the week. Things look even across the board (as long as Coach Coaldog does a lineup check before Monday afternoon) and it's going to stretch all the way until Tuesday night. The Renegades are for sure in the playoffs with a win, but they might be in with a loss too.

Yuengling Brewers (-1/2) vs. Baltimorons
Week five seems so far in the past. After that set of games the Brew Crew was celebrating their fourth straight win and was sitting in second place. Since then they have lost seven in a row and have fallen out of the top eight. They need a win here for a chance at the postseason. Luckily they face off against the only team in the league that's already mathematically eliminated.

Phys. Ed. Phenoms (-1) vs. Stiletto Stompers
Speaking of the past, after week ten the Phenoms were in last place in the league after losing four in a row. Things weren't looking good. But here we are just two weeks later and PEP has jumped up above the playoff cut line and scored the highest weekly point total in our history. Now they can sure up their postseason spot with a win against the Stompers – who could themselves be in with a win.

Good luck this week!
