It’s that time of the year and our “PATHS TO THE PLAYOFFS” article will now be a weekly installment for the remainder of the regular season. In the coming weeks, teams will be trying to clinch playoffs spots, while others will be trying to avoid elimination. With the help of our supercomputer, we have crunched the numbers and sifted through the millions of possibilities.
Each week, as teams near clinching, we will lay out the scenarios needed to do the task. So, throw ESPN’s projections out the window. WE are here to lay it out.
This week, we have 2 teams nearing their “Clinch”.
Joe Buck Yourself
PATHS TO CLINCH playoff spot
A WIN -AND- SONS OF ANARCHY LOSS ; OR
A WIN -AND- MIDWAY MONSTERS LOSS ; OR
A WIN -AND- GB GAMBLERS LOSS
PATHS TO elimination
A LOSS -AND- SONS OF ANARCHY WIN ; OR
A LOSS -AND- THE PIMPS WIN ; OR
A LOSS -AND- SWASHBUCKLING SCALLYWAGS WIN
Yes, you see that right. The Jesters are actually still alive! However, it is only by the slimmest of percentages. See below for ALL postseason prospects. And stay tuned next week for more teams trying to clinch or hold of elimination.
- No scenario was detected in which a team ending with less than 5 wins got a wildcard spot.
- Current estimates for wins likely to get (but not guaranteed) a wildcard spot range between 7 and 8.
- Reaching 10 wins guarantees at least a wildcard spot.
|Joe Buck Yourself||8-0||925||99%||Could clinch this week.|
|Top Dawgs||5-3||833||55%||America’s Team is shining!!|
|Midway Monsters||5-3||710||55%||Solid chances. Gotta edge the other teams out by wins though. |
Point total is too low to win tiebreaker.
|GB Gamblers||4-4||903||23%||Moving up! Points will help edge out other teams.|
|Scallywags||4-4||806||24%||In the thick of things|
|Sons Of Anarchy||4-4||788||22%||Ditto Ditto|
|Irish Pride||3-5||818||5%||Gotta go all out!|
|Darque Warriors||2-6||708||0.7%||Not out of it yet. And much better odds than the Jesters.|
|Jesters||1-7||705||0.0003%||The calculator got maxed out on this one. Yeah, he’s alive. Kind of.|
He would need to win out and the perfect combo of wins/losses
from the teams above.
