Welcome back to part 2 of the Rivalry Analysis. Let’s not waste any time and get started with…
Forgotten Brown joined the league in 2009 with BBKF IV. After an early 3rd place finish they spent years at or near the bottom of the league before winning 3 of the last 4 championships becoming the only other owner with 3 championships. They also became the first repeat champion last year and are looking for the 3peat this year.
With a record of 8-8 against NeverPlaydShenanigns, they may seem like the obvious choice, but with Brown just one win away from evening the score with inhouse, that may be the more interesting option.
Hard as SoftServe
Hard as SoftServe came into the league in 2017 with recently retired #LemmeBorrowThat. They finished 5th in their first year, and after finishing the regular season in 2018 with an impressive record of 10-3 and in first place, a disappointing playoff run had them finish in 4th.
With only 2 years of data to go through, there are almost too many options. SoftServe has split 2 games with both inhouse SWAT and MUYFAYGATO. Perhaps a more interesting choice is one of the 2-1 teams. An interesting data point seen here is that SofServe is 4-0 against Hollywood by an average margin of nearly 20 points.
Another original member of BBKF (and first champion), Hollywood, like Slaters has a lot of data to go through. They’ve won the league twice and finished in second or third a few times. After finishing in last place in 2017, they finished in 11th last year. They’ll be looking to turn that around and get back to winning trophies this year.
SuperFly Eagles may be the choice based on records with SuperFly holding a one game lead on Hollywood. However, another interesting option is MUYFAYGATO. Hollywood holds a three game advantage, but the family connection may be too much to ignore.
inhouse joined the league in 2008, two years after the creation of BBKF. They finished third in both 2013 and 2014, but are still searching for their first championship. After finishing 8th last year, they’ll be hoping that Mahomes can lead them to a championship this year.
There are four active teams that inhouse has a roughly 50% winning percentage against. We’ve mentioned Brown as an option, but don’t forgot about Turtle Power who also is just one win away from putting the series even.
That brings us to the end of part 2. Look for part 3 coming soon…
