Chrome vs. Whipsnakes picks

Week 8 PLL MatchupBetOnline

The Whipsnakes are at the top of the league with a 5-1 record. The Chrome are in the middle of the PLL pack at 4-2. While the Whipsnakes are not the highest scoring team in the PLL, in fact they are one of the lowest scoring teams with 69 scores, they are the best defensive club, allowing just 62 scores.

The Chrome have scored 75 times this season and allowed 63 scores.

Expect a solid defensive matchup between these teams, but I think the Chrome has the better ability to score and they will get the win.

Pick: Chrome to beat Whipsnakes.

Archers vs. Atlas picks

Week 8 PLL MatchupBetOnline

This matchup features two teams who are both 4-2 and who have the ability to score and also play a good defensive game. The Archers have 83 scores for and 63 against, while the Atlas have scored 81 and allowed 69.

If you’re going to watch one game during Week 8 of the PLL season, this is the one to catch.

The question in this game is if Trevor Baptiste will play for the Atlas. If he does play, he gives the Atlas an important edge in faceoffs. If he doesn’t play this game becomes more of a toss up.

Pick: Atlas to beat Archers.

The Waterdogs enter this game with a 3-3 record on the season, while the Cannons are 1-5. The Waterdogs have offensive and defensive advantages in this matchup as they have scored 75 and allowed 74. The Cannons are okay on the offensive side of the game with 67 scores for, but they are by far the worst team in the PLL in 2022 in defense, allowing a league high 88 scores.

Pick: Waterdogs to beat Cannons.

Redwoods vs. Chaos

Two teams with losing records matchup when the Redwoods face the Chaos. The Redwoods are 2-4, while the Chaos are 1-5. These teams are tied for the fewest scores for in the PLL with 61 apiece, however the Chaos are a worse defensive team, allowing 80 scores to the Redwoods 73 scores allowed.

The Redwoods have been taking a lot more shots over the past few weeks and with the Chaos having a rather porous defense, that does not bode well for the Chaos.

Pick: Redwoods to beat Chaos.
