Clockin' Back In: PLL Week 7 Friday Predictions
It has been a little bit since we’ve been able to make some PLL picks. But now that we are past the All-Star game and bye week, the fellas are finally back and are taking on the last portion of the season as they get going in Colorado Springs. The final push to the coveted crown starts now and we are kicking it off with the Atlas and the Chrome. With that being said let’s get to the picks.
**All of the games for this weekend will be broadcast on Peacock**
Friday 7/30 9:00 PM ET Atlas (-180) (-1.5) vs Chrome (+155) (+1.5) (O/U 24.5)
Well, ladies and gentlemen, Dylan Molloy is officially on a Premier lacrosse league roster. After not getting picked up in the player entry draft, the 2017 Tewaaraton winner has found his home on Chrome LC. He is the perfect combination of brute force and finesse and I have no doubt he will fit into the roster well. I cannot deny how dangerous that attack line looks with him next to Colin Heacock and Jackson Morrill. I foresee match up problems for opposing defenses all across the league but I think it may take more than a game to get things clicking. The Chrome find themselves in the bottom half of the league standings with a record of 2-4 and a goal differential of -9. After posting two of the best wins of the season, they are currently on a two game losing streak. I think with the added talent to their roster they will get a few more wins before the end of the season. I know they may have high hopes going into Friday night but something tells me the young guns on the Atlas will have something to say. The Atlas are proving to everyone that all of the off-season movement was worth it as they have won their last four games. They are currently 4-2 with a goal differential of +3. The fresh talent is gelling incredibly well with the established veterans. I do believe that this will be a continuation of the Atlas solidifying themselves a spot in the playoffs. As for the pick, I am going to be going with the Atlas ML. I feel that it is a solid play. Last time these two teams met, the Bulls came away with the 16-10 victory. The Atlas are hot right now and I think that Jeff Teat and the fellas are going to get it done.
The Pick: Atlas -180
