With the final week of the regular season in progress I thought we could all take a look at the crazy scenarios for some teams that are on the playoff bubble!
First off, let’s start with the Hammer Conference. With 3 teams already clinching playoff spots, Notorious, Hybrid Theory, and Impulse. There is only one spot left and two teams actively fighting over that one spot! Uplifted is sitting at 7-7 and Legitimate Strategy is sitting at 8-6. Uplifted started off slow but has come charging back! Legitimate Strategy holds the slight upper hand and hold the key to their own destiny, as long as they win out they will hold that final spot over Uplifted!
Now, let’s move on to the Sword Conference where things are really interesting. There is only one team that has clinched a playoff spot, One Hit Wonders. There are 5 teams that could potentially make up the 3 remaining spots.
Pro Run, Vital Signs, Secret Society, and Bomb Squad are the most likely candidates with First Strike requiring a win-out and a lot of help to make it. Pro plays Vital Signs and Secret Society in the coming days. Whoever wins and loses those games could have a heavy impact on who makes playoffs. Pro Run only needs to win one more game to clinch a spot, Vital Signs only needs two more wins to clinch. Bomb Squad needs Vital Signs to lose all of their remaining games to win the division but only need to beat Secret Society and win one more game at the least to make playoffs. Secret Society will need to win at least 3 games in order have a chance. Beating Bomb Squad, Vital Signs, and Pro Run would greatly increase their chances.
Finally, for First Strike to make playoffs, they would need to win all of their remaining games. Secret Society and Bomb Squad will have to lose all but at least one game for them to make playoffs. Their chance is very slight but it’s there.
If you have read this far I would like to thank you! I’m personally very intrigued by stuff like this and thought it would be exciting to share this with you all! Thank you!
