*Only confirmed matchups will be predicted

9 AM – Caliphs (10) vs. Ballers (11) –

Flashback when they met in the regular season: The Caliphs comfortably beat the Ballers in their week 9 matchup. Strong offensive performance by Musab and crew wreaked havoc on the Ballers defense. Usman was in charge of the offensive attack for the Ballers, but the team couldn’t generate enough offense to hang with the Caliphs.

Prediction: The Caliphs have shown steady progression throughout the season. A key turning point was when Musab took over the offense and became the QB. The Ballers themselves have made changes and have gone from Umair to Usman. However, Usman is still not 100% coming back from injury. Our expert advice for the Ballers is to turn back to Umair as he can be a dual threat with his tremendous speed. We expect this to be a much more competitive contest then the last time these two teams met. Ultimately the Caliphs will pull out a win to advance to the next round.

Score Prediction:

Caliphs 20– Ballers 13

10 AM- Imaan (8) vs. Elites (9) –

Flashback when they met in the regular season: A very competitive showdown between these two teams happened in week 8. A back and forth game which went down to the final play to decide the winner (Imaan 26-24). Waqas throwing a late TD to seal the game and a huge victory.

Prediction: Imaan will be playing with a heavy heart after the loss of dear teammate and friend Scott. This game is a matchup of two teams sliding in opposite directions. Elites have lost five straight while Imaan has shown much better form in recent weeks. Our expert advice to the Elites is to play an up tempo offense and force their opponent to adjust to their pace. This game will be full of emotions and fierce competition. It is very had to predict this game, but we give the slight edge to Imaan.

Score prediction:

Imaan 27– Elites 26

11 AM- Niners (4) vs. AK (5) –

Flashback when they met in the regular season: These two teams met early in the season in Alley Pond Park. The Niners were victorious in a defensive showdown (18-12). Key plays by Josh for the Niners led them to a huge win over the talented AK team. AK was missing star QB Sim in this contest.

Prediction: Welcome to life in the CFL! Both teams had a chance at the number one seed and instead fell to 4th and 5th respectively. A potential finals preview in the first round. THIS IS THE GAME OF THE WEEK! A star studded showdown with CFL veterans on one side vs. a dominant team on the other. AK will receive a huge boost with Sim leading  charge of the offense. The Niners offense has been very different this season relying more on intermediate passes vs. the deep ball that has been part of the Niners identity since league inception. Our expert advice for the Niners is to get Glueman in the game. All jokes aside the Niners need to eliminate the miscues. Key drops and missed tackles hurt them tremendously against the Outsiders, and they will need to play a clean game to beat AK. Ultimately we believe AK will be victorious in a very heated battle.

Score prediction:

AK 27– Niners 20

11 AM- Outsiders vs. Underdogs:

Flashback when they met in the regular season: These teams met back in week 7 in a rainy showdown. The Outsiders were victorious (28-19) in a highly competitive contest. Danny was able to deliver key plays to lead his team to victory.

Prediction: Since this contest both teams have gone in opposite directions. Underdogs have lost four out of their last five contests, while the Outsiders have won six straight. The young ‘dogs must keep their heads up after a thrashing in week 9 against the top two teams in the CFL. Our expert advice to the Underdogs is to come out aggressive and play with nothing to lose. This will keep them loose and give them their best shot at victory. Ultimately the veteran Outsiders will be too much for the young ‘dogs.

Score Prediction:

Outsiders 28– Underdogs 20
