B&RU Match Prediction Game - Week 8

New, 54 comments

Things are heating up in the Match Prediction Game, so we're upping the ante and including two double-point games in Week 8.

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

After a relatively quiet start to the MPG season, B&RU reader Steven Streff decided it was time to make a statement. So he decided to dropkick everyone else in the face and score 28 points, which is a tie for the second-highest single week score this season (dcsoccer7 currently holds the single-week points record with 31 points).  As a prize, Señor Streff will receive a military-grade laser pointer from Estadio Azteca so you can point out your future victims. Well done.

Things are starting to heat up in the Match Prediction Game, so I've decided to take things one step further and include not one, but TWO double-point games this week: Orlando City SC vs. Toronto FC and Seattle vs. Portland. For those of us who might still be lagging behind, there is no excuse not to make a statement in Week 8. Get some!

If a player's name has been dropped from the Leaderboard, it is because that player has been inactive for three consecutive weeks. This does not mean that they are out of the game or disqualified. That player may re-join the Match Prediction Game at any time and retain the points they have already earned. If a player's name is in italics, it is a warning that means they have been inactive for two consecutive weeks.
