Key Takeaways

  • The top three have all played one more game than the three chasers, but they’ve built an advantage greater than a full five would overcome.
  • Over the next month, Utah’s schedule puts them in the best position to push up.
  • Expect one or two of the teams ‘In The Hunt’ to fall over the next month.
  • Of note: if the playoffs started today, only Austin would be in a position to host the Final. That would only occur if New England could run to the Championship match. Playoff spots are the first thing on the list, but the title contenders will be keeping an eye across the Mississippi.
