Favorites have to be Team Martin and Team Noel. Noel’s team has a good depth but not sure if they match up well against Martin in the first match on Saturday. Kraemer and Madison have strong groups as well but are lacking some locks which helps win you need two out of three.
I like Cormier and Pickett in this flight mainly again because they have some top players at each level and don’t seem to have any weak areas. Myers and Stevens have some solid players as well but might be lacking at 3.5 a bit although look good at 4.5 and 4.0 respectively.
Even though I see those four teams as favorites I don’t foresee many lopsided results this weekend.
Odds to join Team Bazan in Houston on February 22-24:
Team Pickett 3 to 1
Team Martin 4 to 1
Team Noel 6 to 1
Team Cormier 8 to 1
Team Stevens 12 to 1
Team Myers 15 to 1
Team Kraemer 25 to 1
Team Madison 25 to 1
