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.

There doesn’t seem to be any known teams in the way of (2nd) or Tad Kubbler (T9) making a return to Sunday this year. The other two spots could be filled by a number of known teams including Kubbitz (G), The Northmen (T13), Grass Kickers (G), Ona Orth, and Kubbquists (G). Also a strong second place team like King Kung or T-Time Kubboom from group H could find their way into this quarter. Our voters favor the winner or group W to get the fourth spot but they will still have to get past the Kubbquists a T13 team from 2016.

Dark Horses

  • The Northmen
  • Kubbquists

The Northmen and Kubbquists are both Sunday veterans. They have tough paths to get there again, but don’t count out either team.

Potential Matchup to Watch

  • Kubbquists vs. Grass Kickers/Ona Orth

Whoever ends up in this round three battle will get to go to Sunday. The Kubbquists have seen Sunday in the past, but the Grass Kickers and Ona Orth are surely hungry for their chance too.
