Spoiler Alert: MLR Round 8

A 3-3 week pulls the season record down to 26-15. This week could be worse, with four games being far from certain picks.

Bye(s): San Diego Legion, Dallas Jackals, Austin Gilgronis

Rugby ATL v. New England Free Jacks

The biggest game of the week is in the peach state. Both sides are truly elite. Waaka we’ll be the best single player on the field, but the home advantage gives a slight edge to the RATLers.

Winner: Atlanta

Old Glory DC v. NOLA Gold

The Gold continue to be mediocre. For DC, it’s a level to which they aspire.

Winner: NOLA

Seattle Seawolves v. LA Giltinis

It flew under my radar, but Seattle is the only team playing that still hasn’t had a bye. Could the inconsistency be tired legs? LA is starting to move closer to its ‘no-Giteau-or-Carty’ peak. It’ll be tight one up north.

Winner: LA

Utah Warriors v. Houston SaberCats

These two are all over the place. It comes down to the question of who shows up and who doesn’t. Take the home team, but don’t bet much.

Winner: Utah

Rugby New York v. Toronto Arrows

A sneaky important game. A win give RNY the inside track on a home playoff game. A Toronto win firmly reasserts them in the playoff race. I’ll take the home side in a tight one. Don’t bet on the visitors to leave empty handed.

Winner: New York
