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.

The voters seem sure that both 2,4,6 Mafia (2018 Champion) and Tyr’s Tre (T9) have relatively safe paths to Sunday. However, one voter sees The Northmen (G) giving Kubb Life (T13) a hard time and there is contention about who will win between Kalifornia Kubbers (T5) and Kubb Squirrels (T13). The Kubb Squirrels drew a tough Kubb Snipers team in their group and one of them will find their way to this side.

Dark Horses

Like the Kubb Squirrels, the Drill Pickles are a tough team that likely will make their way to this part of the bracket and match-up with a difficult Tyr’s Tre team. Watch out for Southern Kings too! Team Captain Steven Woodson and teammate Eric Pardoe have been playing a lot and finished the regular season of the Keystone Virtual Kubb League tied for second.

Potential Matchup to Watch

  • Kalifornia Kubbers versus Kubb Squirrels

This is about as good as it gets on Saturday. Both teams have been to Sunday before, but Kalifornia Kubbers beat the Squirrels in Sunday group play in 2018. The Squirrels, however, haven’t missed Sunday since their first year in 2015.
