And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 3:

Predacons (-1/2) vs. Baltimorons
The 'Morons are the top scoring team in the league after our first two weeks. They're also 0-2 and have lost their last 8 straight games (and 10 of their last 11). A loss against the Preds this week will tie the all time losing streak record. And all those Qs and IRs aren't going to help.

Yuengling Brewers (-1/2) vs. Phys. Ed. Phenoms
Our defending champs outscored the league last week and are projected to have the highest score again this week. Meanwhile, PEP is hoping that their prime time comeback is enough to earn them a win this time around.

Marauders (-1/2) vs. Renegades
With a player in every NFL time slot, this one will take an extended time to decide the winner. Both teams have a chance for a big start tonight but the matchups seem to give the edge to the Marauders.

Stiletto Stompers (-1/2) vs. Lightning
Losing Saquon Barkley is going to make it tough for the Bolts to stay undefeated this week. They only have one player projected to score in the double digits. But that player is Patrick Mahomes, so you never know.

Dumbbums (-1/2) vs. Misfits, Inc.
The 'Bums have put up fewer points this whole season than a couple of our teams did just last week. But they have a shot at grabbing their first win against FitzCorp, who appear to be starting Daniel Jones in tonight's game because of a concussed first string QB.

And the game of the week...

Spiked Vipers (-1/2) vs. the HAW
This important 3FL North battle is going to come down to the wire on MNF. The CAPS are undefeated but SpiVi has scored more points so far. Coach HAW has to hope that his team can keep it close through the early games, and his fingers have to be crossed that Breece Hall can actually play on Sunday since there are no backup RBs on the roster.

Good luck this week.
