Shea Nations Schiffhauer picks!

This weekend at the Schiffhauer Strong Major by Smash It Sports in Cincinnati, OH will have 3 major teams and 6 AA teams, 7 A and 9 B teams.  The tournament will begin on Friday evening at 5 pm with the play-in and first round games.  Resmondo/Smash It/Menosse/Thunder is the #1 overall seed based on Conference points.  SmashItSports/Newbreed/TDB/RF/BD/T3 is the favorite though after winning both tournaments in Washington.  The other teams looking to upset the #1 seed and favorite are: MPT Rentals/Juno Athletics; Sports Reach/Worth/CT/Grizzy; and
SNI/Thunder/Chosen/DeMarini.

The Schiffhauer Strong Major Predictions:  The "Elite 8" starts at 9:45 am on Saturday.  The winners advance to the "Final Four" which should be MPT Rentals/Juno Athletics versus Resmondo and Sports Reach versus Smash It Sports.  Immediately following the "Final Four" is the undefeated game and should get a rematch of the Seattle Dual game between Resmondo and Smash It Sports.  In the loser’s bracket, look for SNI/Thunder/Chosen/DeMarini to make it back to the 4th place game after their Elite 8 loss to MPT Rentals.  Watch Game 31 which could be a matchup between Amish teams Silverbacks/Revolution Ath/Koval and WM Roofing / Revolution Athletics. 

Shea's Final Picks for the Schiffhauer Strong Major:
1. Resmondo/Smash It/Menosse/Thunder
2. SmashItSports/Newbreed/TDB/RF/BD/T3
3. MPT Rentals/Juno Athletics
4. SNI/Thunder/Chosen/DeMarini
5. Sports Reach/Worth/CT/Grizzy
    S & E/FRIENDLYS TRANS/WORSHAM
