The final weekend of the regular season is here. Man, time flies.
BMuz Game of the Week
Chelmsford Charawalas (7-5) vs. New England Double Terriers (6-6)
- ESPN Projection: Double Terriers by 5
After notching their second winning season, the Charawalas have an outside chance of making their first BMuz FFL playoff appearance in their fifth year of existence. They’ll need some help from the likes of Bakr, Muaz, or Ebad. More importantly, they’ll have to get past a dejected, but still dangerous Double Terriers squad. Good luck to the Charawalas, Ahsan Ali is rooting for you.
Games to Watch
Old Tappan J-E-T-S (9-3) vs. Bloomfield Cowboys (6-6)
- ESPN Projection: J-E-T-S by 20
A win in the “The Battle for New Jersey” will give the J-E-T-S the #1 seed and the Klay division title, but a loss could drop them into the WC round. Note, a #1 seed has never won a BMuz championship, so a loss could be a blessing in disguise. The Cowboys were in the middle of the playoff picture as of two weeks ago, but subsequently dropped their next two games leaving them on the outside looking in. At least they’re set up well for the future thanks to this year’s #1 pick, Zeke Elliot.
Chappaqua GOATs (8-4) vs. Lowell Panthers (4-8)
- ESPN Projection: GOATs by 20
For the second year in a row, the GOATs are the hottest team at the end of the season, but may have to settle for a Wild Card spot or may even find themselves out of the playoffs altogether. A loss against a potent Panthers team would leave them at 8-5 and the GOATs could find themselves out of the playoffs if the Charawalas, OakTrees, and Mubaraks all win this week. While the GOATs remain heavy favorites this week, their playoffs have some tough match ups with Captain Kirk and Rob Kelley going up against the Arizona D and OBJ up against the Steelers secondary.
Mubarakstan University of Mubaraks (8-4) vs. Worcester Nation of Muazination (4-8)
- ESPN Projection: Mubaraks by 5
The Mubaraks can stunningly clinch Steph division with a win against the NoM and cap off the year with a very impressive 6-0 division record. What makes it even more impressive is that they currently average 97.6 points per game which ranks 12th in the league and is less than any team in the entire Klay division. Nonetheless, after last year’s down year, the 2nd winningest franchise in BMuz history is back in the playoff mix.
Boston OakTrees (8-4) vs. Malden Cavaliers (3-7)
- ESPN Projection: OakTrees by 32
The OakTrees are the HEAVY favorites this week against a Cavaliers team that has three starters on their bye week…in week 13. If Allah (swt) blesses Ebad with a huge upset this week, Oak may find himself out of the playoffs (if the Sheikhs can get by Sulreeb). This would be a stunning development as the OakTrees are the top scoring team in BMuz (and should finish the year that way). But again, they are heavily favored this week with plus match ups all around (Ware vs. ATL, Gordon vs. TB, and Hightower taking over the RB1 duties this week). Meanwhile, Ebad finds himself out of the playoffs once again and has yet to make the BMuz playoffs since joining the league in 2011.
Chicago 7-6ers (9-3) vs. Franklin Raekwons (2-10)
- ESPN Projection: 7-6ers by 7.5
Ahsan will be looking to end his dream season with a win against his former co-owner and Traders Anonymous sponsor, HSid. Another win would clinch a playoff bye and potentially the #1 overall seed should Shahzad fall against Q. Unfortunately for Ace, his team has been pretty cold over the last 5 weeks, averaging ~94 ppg and breaking 100 pts (barely) in only two of those games. Nonetheless, a great regular season for the 7-6ers.
Dublin #McNuggets (7-5) vs. Pepperell Patriots (5-7)
- ESPN Projection: Patriots by 9
The #McNuggets clinched their second consecutive division title and #4 seed last week and will look to end their regular season on a high note. Haroon and the Patriots will look to win this week and avoid their second straight 5-8 season.
Lexington Mughals (6-6) vs. Boston Baingans (4-8)
- ESPN Projection: Mughals by 6
Another season, another disappointment for Uzair and the Mughals. They will miss out on the playoffs for the third consecutive season. With a loss this week, they’ll match their 6-7 record from 2015. Meanwhile, another forgettable season for the once dominant Omar Usmani. Since winning their second BMuz championship in 2014, the Baingains are 8-17 in the regular season and will have consecutive 4-9 seasons if they lose this week.
