Week 10 has arrived so that means we are down to four more weeks until the playoff teams are locked. We are four weeks away from seeing which six teams are going for glory and which four teams are going for shame. We have four teams only two wins away from locking up their ticket to the dance. However, as we have seen before those two wins will not come easy. What does the Godfather see happening this week? Last week he went three for five in picks, but without the trade on Monday that altered wins and losses should have gone four for five, with predicting the Brown-Eye to win being the only wrong guess. So lets get after it and take a look into what week ten will bring.
Richard Feltersnatch (4-5) VS. Beavers Love Wood (6-3) *Game of the Week*
This weeks featured matchup features the two hottest teams in the league today. Each of these squads come into week ten riding winning streaks, the Beavers four and Feltersnatch three. Both teams have also been finishing in the top three of weekly scoring during this time racking up those crucial victory points. The Beavers are just two wins away from locking up a playoff spot while Richard will have to keep winning to fight off the teams running neck and neck with them. This is going to come down to the wire as this has the closest chance of winning difference (10.2%). The Beavers have been hot but come into this contest as the slight under dog. Will they grow their win streak to five or will Feltersnatch grow theirs to four in a row?
Godfather Predicts: ( Richard Feltersnatch and then pounded the Beaver)
My Ditka Got Your Gurley Off (4-5) VS. Cocoa Nuts (6-3)
The basement magician kept his season alive last week turning a loss into a win in a very cerebral way. The move proved fruitful last week but will it bring the same result this week? Also what message will be delivered to the champ in this weeks edition of The Elite Funhouse? This will mark the third meeting between these two squads and in the previous two meetings the champ came out on top. This will be the best chance My Ditka has had to hand the champ a loss as this is the second closest projected matchup of the week. Both of the teams come into this contest riding a two game winning streaks. My Ditka much like Feltersnatch above must continue to win as they are in a dog fight to get into the post season. The champ comes into this one just needing two more wins to clinch a spot in the playoffs, keeping his bid at a repeat alive. Cocoa Nuts is the slight favorite in this matchup but you can never count out My Ditka. How does the Godfather see this one playing out?

Dirty Sanchez Butt-Fumblers (4-5) VS. SlamHogs (4-5)
This contest is tied with the previous with the second closest matchup of the week. Last week The SlamHogs gambled their season to improve their team, was it worth it? This week will give everyone some insight on how handing a win to My Ditka will effect the Hogs. The Hogs much like his opponent this week will need to win quite often these last four weeks as they are both in a battle for the final playoff spots. This will mark the fourth time these teams have met in league history and the Hogs hold the advantage. Dirty Sanchez has never beat the Hogs will this week change that? Dirty does come into this one as the slight favorite so will they capitalize on that and get his first win against the Hogs and put some more distance between he and the Hogs in the playoff race?
Godfather Predicts: ( Dirty smears the Hogs this week)
Harry Ballsackies (6-3) VS. Annexation of Puerto Rico (3-6)
Each of these teams come into this matchup desperate for a win. The last time these two teams squared off was back in week four when they entered that meeting both 3-0. That matchup was won by Ballsackies starting the current losing streak of the Annexation, now six in a row. The Ballsackies haven't had much success since that win either going 2-3 and losing three straight. The Ballsackies are still in good shape needing just two wins to clinch a playoff spot in their first full season in the league. The Annexation needs to start winning now to have any chance. The good news for the AOPR is most of their injured players are coming back this week and will offer some relief and make them more competitive moving forward. The Ballsackies are the heavy favorite in this one so will they get the win to end their skid?
Godfather Predicts: ( Ballsackies get back into win column as AOPR drops 7th in a row )
Lick My Antonio Brown-Eye (2-7) VS. Little Italy (6-3)
This will be the second meeting of the year between these two squads and the third time in league history. The series is tied at one win a piece with the Brown-Eye setting the league record for weekly points against Italy back in week five. This week they come into the matchup the underdog looking to end their four game losing streak. Little Italy comes into this one after losing to Feltersnatch last week despite putting up top three numbers. Italy is in search of two more wins to lock up a playoff spot for the second year in a row. The Brown-Eye basically needs this win this week and two more to have any chance at making it to the Playoffs. Don't count out the Brown-Eye who have all the tools in place to go on a late season run and shock the fantasy world.
Godfather Predicts: ( Italy gets his week 5 revenge )
