As the FIL results come in, the old line results are published and updated, and BRAND NEW lines for tomorrow’s game are also created! Is your squad going to overcome the spread? Can you eek out a surprise win? 96 games out 107 predicted correctly is pretty darn good, but I’m trying to get that number up further with the right calls through the end of the 2018 World Lacrosse Championships!

Talk about a rough day of picking games! I got 5 games right and within predicted margins, but I also got 5 games flat out wrong! Hungary continues to be a team I struggle to read well, and Wales won a close game I thought could go either way. I had Israel to upset Australia but the Aussies used all their FIL savvy to outplay the host nation and make me look a little silly. Oi Oi Oi. I should have known, having played there way back when. Japan also proved that yesterday was an aberration, and their quest to get back into the Blue Pool is still alive and well! I love being wrong when it’s all on the line. Huge wins today for every team that came out with the W.
I went 13-5 with my picks today, bringing my record to 109 correct out of 125 predicted, and now I’m sitting at 87% correct. So far. There is hope still! I need a great day tomorrow.
Now remember, there is no Blue Division anymore – now it’s just playoff games, final seeding games, and the Championship – but there is a TON of lacrosse still to be played – over two FULL days producing more exciting FIL results. Loving it all.
