I really want to see PEE win again and bring their ratio into the positive, but doing that will be a big challenge. QMP is coming in off consecutive ties, and desperately want that first W. The Dragon/Sparil duo is going to be extremely effective on this map, but after what we've seen from PEE last week against SXP, it's very possible PEE could pull off yet another upset performance. In the end though, I think Dragon/Sparil will shut things down just enough for im1 to get the winning caps in.
SXP is rather solid on paper, but has had a tough start to the season so far with consecutive Ls. Unfortunately for them, they're facing one of the toughest teams they could play on this map. BST is extremely adaptable and seem to have a good grip on any map they play. BST will likely start off slow, in order to see how SXP is going to attack, then adapt quickly hitting SXP hard where it hurts. SXP will probably put up a solid initial fight, but will eventually become overwhelmed by BST in two rounds.
GPS has had a great start to their season, which was sparked by their pre-season acquisition of Denzoa. GPS is all about team chemistry, and they have it. But their first two battles were against weaker teams, this week they're finally in for a real challenge in TPT. Meanwhile TPT, despite having extremely strong players, have yet to secure a win. They play well though, Jake and Tai can do some amazing things, and this week they're probably hungry for that first W. TPT's trade acquisition of Starrk in exchange for SkullRush is an interesting spin, I'm curious to see what Tai does with him. This is a hard game to predict especially with Tai's roster change. Teams should be pretty even in strength, ties are likely here which is what it will ultimately be.
TPT 1-1-1 GPS
SUC has one of the strongest duos in the league, and I'm curious how they've been adapting with Souler. They started off the season with a narrow win against SXP, and a tie after QMP performed somewhat of a comeback. That being said, I'm sure Ralph is coordinating a lot of practice when he can, as while they're 3rd seed right now that could easily change this week. Luckily for them, they're facing the most troubled team in the league. BSK has had a rough season coming into week 3, all beginning with the questionable pre-season decision to trade Denzoa away for Starrk. They've endured two 0-2 L's so far, and don't show any signs of improving that record. With the trade of Starrk for SkullRush, BSK is going to have to really practice and generate some team energy. Zakken is a very solid D, and SkullRush can be a really good runner when he wants to be. Dosu has been improving a lot lately, so if Skr and Dosu can generate a solid O/mid chemistry while Zakken holds down D, they could make something work. In the end though, I think the wall that is Ralph and Jwar will prove impossible for BSK to get past, meanwhile Zakken will eventually leak a few flags to give SUC the W.
