Just like last year, the Kubb On staff decided it would be fun to break down the bracket and make some predictions. In this article, the staff will look more in-depth at a portion of the bracket and guess who they believe will advance to Sunday. For reference, check out the official groups and bracket.

Kubb On would like to remind everyone that this is all just for fun. The staff doesn’t claim to know every team or every player, but it’s too intriguing not to at least speculate.

In addition to the great teams coming out of the I-P Groups; Kubbstaches (T5), Kubb Life (T9), Man Kubbs (G), El Forringers 99 (T5), The Kubbing Projekt, Poplar Culture, El Ringer Family Reunion, Vallstars (G), and MPG Kubboom, this quarter could also likely see TC Choppers, Shinbusters, Kubboom Jr. (G), Team Kubboom-The Supernova, Chaska Red and Läkerol Originals (G) making the trip to Sunday. There are not just Group winners, but many Sunday veterans and National Champions to contend with.

The Ringers are on two different teams this year and both are in this quarter and still look dangerous.

Watch Group Y and Group BB in the morning, the second place teams in these tough groups will find themselves in the bottom half of this quarter. Kubboom Jr. and TC Choppers are two of these teams. Also, The Kubbing Projekt, a 2016 Sunday team, drew a tough path last year and couldn’t quite find their way to Sunday in 2017. Expect a great showing from all these teams.

Other teams to watch: MPG Kubboom, Poplar Culture, Man Kubbs

Potential Matchup to Watch

  • El Forringers 99 vs. Kubbing Project… or El Ringer Family Reunion vs. TC Choppers…. Or Kubboom Jr. vs. Vallstars… or….

There are a lot of great potential matchups in this quarter. Catch whoever is playing for Sunday in round three of this quarter, as they are likely there because they’re on fire. You won’t be disappointed.
