OK so after half of the top players in this tour were knocked out in a really strange week 1 (SHSP should count his lucky stars for being handed the W) i figured i'd try my hand at some predictions

Nalorium vs zeefable - two non cap mains try to figure out what the hell these shitty fakemon do as they fight to the death. going with zee because he just got a banner and is still riding the plot armor
Voltage vs iNoLife - i really hate to predict against voltage but inolife will bring a stonjourner or some shit and it will probably get three kills
Lasen vs velvet - HL game, should be really fun to watch. mostly comes down to whether lasen's cracked ass HO has a good salazzle matchup or not
Birkal vs Dj Breloominati♬ - birkal is someone else who has a lot of plot armor right now. he just finished TLing for the latest CAP and pulled out the W against a top player last week, in 2-0 fashion no less. if he keeps riding this wave of momentum i think it's even possible that his badges could start being ungreyed (although unfortunately i cant say the same about his hair). HOWEVER, with that being said, i cannot in good faith predict against the 100% WR articuno. this one goes to spitfire
SHSP vs Da Pizza Man - SHSP is winning this tour -- the pieces were already in place, but D2TheW's untimely loss has only made this reality more certain
Maxouille vs Mr.Bossaru - maxouille will bring a single fairy type and bossaru wont know how to act
Blui vs Sputnik - don't know much about blui but sput's a good player and he has experience in this tier
Heaven Jay
(99.998%) vs (00.002%) خسدڭۋە - someone please just avenge d2
crow crumbs vs Rat With Wings - i don't know crow crumbs so could be wrong but im going with the cap vet
IloveScaldBurns vs CallMeDrippyT - IloveScaldBurns will get one (1) lucky scald burn and drippy will get himself perma'd
The Number Man vs S1nn0hC0nfirm3d - another great match between two great players, going with tnm though as he's got more experience in the tier
Atha vs Pitmore - pitmore managed to beat darek last week but i don't think he will be able to repeat the success against a player of a similar caliber. ngl it would be pretty funny if he won though, lowkey rooting for him
slurpuffthebest vs quziel - quziel good
Zephyri vs Rage.Spam.Quit. - 55/45 in rsq's favor if zeph brings dhelmise again. 80/20 otherwise
Amamama vs Binacleisthebest - binpin plays the meta more but all ama has to do is bring tran and it should be quick work
 
Nalorium  vs  zeefable - I embarrassed myself last week by predicting against zeefable, not this time
Voltage  vs  iNoLife - Hard one. I'll go Voltage because I feel like I've been predicting against him a ton against my will recently. INolife is a dangerous opponent though.
Lasen  vs  velvet - Lasen's style doesn't seem to match up well against velvet. If he shifts a bit I'll still favor him
Birkal  vs  Dj Breloominati♬ - Would be funny if Birkal won the tournament. Never too late to have a strong prime. Not going against my man spitfire however
arn.av136  vs  2spoopy4u - arnav uses spitifre teams, which is never a good idea if you're not spitfire
SHSP  vs  Da Pizza Man - Unless pizza guy randomly sweeps with Cawm shsp is heavily favored
Maxouille  vs  Mr.Bossaru - Max impressed ma last week, also ALLAIENT LA FROONCE
Blui  vs  Sputnik - Superior vaccine
Heaven Jay  vs  خسدڭۋە - I fucking warned you d2
crow crumbs  vs  Rat With Wings - crow vs rat, looks like some fable de La Fontaine
IloveScaldBurns  vs  CallMeDrippyT - I think scaldburns guy is a bit better, and that's not meant to be an insult, it's simply true.
The Number Man  vs  S1nn0hC0nfirm3d - There is only one number man, how dare you put some numbers in your name and pretend you're him
slurpuffthebest  vs  quziel - Nostrathamus
Zephyri  vs  Rage.Spam.Quit. - I'll love to bold Zeph but he'll need an upset
Amamama  vs  Binacleisthebest
