[TMS] Nails vs Z Strats [PLA] - Better Support

[DYN] Qwello Lee vs Paraplegic [GIB] - Qwello has underperformed expectations and is currently negative with 3-4 meanwhile Para has overperformed expectations sitting at 4-4. Qwello sat out last week but lost the week before against Nails due to some power whip misses in a game he didn't look bad and just got unlucky for the most part. Para on the other hand lost last week to Memoric bringing some heat and memeing with pogarina. The hax cancelled each other out and I think Para just played not great especially the mew and Volcarona sequence and not expecting explosion Lando-T when the Lando was confirmed band and it was a set Memo has used before. I don't really see Qwello losing this one he is just the better player in my opinion and this win is super important for his team, I doubt he goes negative and fully expect to see him turn it up in his potentially final game.

[SPA] Lunar. vs YoBuddy [FOX] - Lunar is in for stax and is up against YoBuddy who is still searching for his first official team tour win, unfortunately for him I don't see it happening. Lunar has played in officials before and is not a bad player by any means and has been quite active in prepping and testing for stax, I myself have played quite a bit of test games vs him and think he has played quite well with a decent understanding of the meta. YoBuddy is 0-3 and has not really looked good and is also coming off of a two week break after being subbed a bit for Memoric. While test games aren't tour games I still am going to give it to Lunar for previous experience as well as being imo the better player from what I can tell.

[ISL] fespy vs Actuarily [TER] - This game doesn't really matter as both teams are guaranteed in playoffs and I don't know if either player really cares about their record much. Fespy played in an SPL before with the sharks but did not have a good performance going 2-7 meanwhile this is Actuarily's first official and he is currently 2-3. I rate Actuarily higher as a player right now but I think just like Para wasn't able to handle Memos heat that fespy will bring some fun heat that Actuarily won't really know how to play against and that this might be the perfect opponent for fespy.

[BRE] Spurrific vs Frania [SHO] - This is actually now a really hard game to predict for me and could be a close one. Spurrific has been the more consistent player and is currently 5-3 after a really well played game against stax last week. Frania on the other hand went from looking pretty bad to being on a bit of a streak going from 1-3 to 4-4. Last week Frania copied my team for the second week in a row and won against grandmas cookin (though with some help from a lot of crits), his play has seemed quite a bit more solid compared to the early weeks too. Gonna go for what's probably considered the upset here partly because Franias team is still fighting for a playoff spot, Frania beat me, and purrific predicted against me this week.

Been busier than expected recently which is a bummer since week 7 imo was a huge week for SS dou and I didn't get to talk about it but life goes on. I'll make longer predicts but since it doesnt matter as much for some people I'll keep them short!

[TMS] Nails vs Z Strats [PLA] - I thought last week was going to be the upset week for Z Strats but instead he won and I lost a point LOL. He has been super solid this whole tournament and with his team's fate on the line I don't see him going lightly on prep at all. That factored into Nails being out and not looking as strong as his usual self, Z Strats should take this.
[DYN] Qwello Lee vs Paraplegic [GIB] - Qwello skipped last week thinking they were out LOL. Para 's game was a mess with a lot of luck and neither player looked amazing so I think I'll go with the guy who looked stronger in recent tournaments.
[SPA] Lunar. vs YoBuddy [FOX] - Go me!
[ISL] fespy vs Actuarily [TER] - Honestly Actu could very much lose this game depending on what crackhead stuff fespy brings.. BUT I think Actuarily is the better player and if he doesn't get caught off guard will just win.
[BRE] Spurrific vs Frania [SHO] - Frania has been looking good enough this tournament but Spurrific is on fire atm. I predict him to win here and know what I'm putting him down to win seasonals too, you heard it here first!
