As promised in my Week One Wrap, here are our much anticipated PREDICTIONS for Week Two of Madness 2018.
 Jewell Ravenlock -vs-  Romeo MacKenzie
Romeo had some pretty solid luck in Week One against Jewell’s former Royal teammate Luna, but I think this may be where it runs out. Now granted, it’s been awhile since we saw much in the way of action from the Empress and when we have, it’s been a lot of yada yada Kalamere drama and oh my heart. Don’t worry, Jewell, you give us heart palpitations when we see you too. I think she’ll send all of our hearts a-fluttering when she lays the smackdown on Ro.
Prediction: Jewell wins, 5-3 in 10.
 Baphelocutis -vs-  Strawberry
In Round One, Strawberry put down a rather infamous slaver while Baph put down a five year old boy. You’d think that maybe based on that, the lady would have it in the bag. Don’t get me wrong, the Beginner’s Luck phenomenon is real, but it’s hard to believe it will hold up against tried and true experience, the likes of which Baphelocutis has plenty. I think the Wardrac takes it, but it’ll be a narrow victory.
Prediction: Baph wins, 5-4 in 14.
 Xanth van Bokkelen -vs-  Matt Simon
Xanth had a hell of an opener against Leena Vincent in Round One and in Round Two, he’s lucky enough to go up again my favorite Team Fist Colonel, Matt Simon. Xanth is a badass and all of that but I’m contractually obligated to always pick Matt Simon. I think Xanth will put up a good fight but yes, Matt takes it in the end.
Prediction: Matt wins, 5-3.5 in 11.
 Ebon Ilnaren -vs-  Ekthbjlgke Smith
E Smith has had quite the year when it comes to dueling in general. He is the latest Overlord and even got himself an Opal over in the Outback. The former Governor is a nice guy? Yeah, we’ll go with that. That said, I think he’s a nice guy that is going to get absolutely steamrolled by E. Sorry, Ebon.
Prediction: Ekthbjlgke wins, 5-2 in 6.
