Week 6 Picks

Upsets! TNB got fall down drunk instead of playing kickball, BG&F and PSR took it up a notch and decided to play kickball outta nowhere. 6-3 last week.

Regular Season Record: 32-10-3 (.761)


Game 1: LHC Girth vs The Tyrannical Tea Baggers
Teabaggers -5.5

Game 2: LHC Length vs Plan B
Plan B -1.5

Game 3: Booooze On First! vs PurpleSaurus Rex
Booze on First -2.5

Game 4: Finkick Odair vs Tight and Bright
Finkick Odair -

Game 5: Brown Guy and Friends vs Pitches Be Trippin'
Pitches Be Trippin' -3.5

Game 6: FRESH BRU vs Sit On My Base

Game 7: Jacked to the Kicks vs At Least We're Having Fun
Jacked to the Kicks -1.5

Game 8: Sons of Pitches Kickin the Punt vs Kickin' Grass & Takin' Names
Kickin' Grass -3.5

Game of the Week: Red Ball and V0dka vs Do You Even Kick, Bro?
Both teams are 2-3. RAA is 5.2 to 5.6, RFA is 3.4 to 3.6. Total difference in run differential is exactly ONE. Just about the most statistically similar teams I've ever seen with 5 games of the season already behind us, this should be a tight matchup! Clearly math can accurately predict performance and there really isn't any significant variance in co-ed adult kickball, so I'm making the pick by the numbers. Assuming the teams score exactly the average of (their own RFA + their opponents RAA), we get Red Ball V0dka 4.4, Do You Even Kick Bro 4.5. I could pick a tie here, but instead I'm going to round to nearest integers and call it Red Ball 4 vs Kick Bro 5.
Do You Even Kick, Bro? -.5
