2018 Championship Games Predictions
It is now 2018, and it’s a fresh year for every team. What teams will walk away as champs in the NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB, NCAA football ,and NCAA Basketball. Only time can tell, but I have a few predictions. Hopefully, all these games turn out to competitive, like they normally are.
NFL: Super Bowl LII
Prediction: New England Patriots vs Philadelphia Eagles.
Patriots 31, Eagles 28
Patriots are the hottest team right now, and Brady is showing no signs of slowing down. He’s on a mission after the rough start to the season. This guy isn’t human. Here’s the catch though. I would’ve picked the Eagles to win it all if Carson Wentz didn’t get hurt. The Eagles looked so good when Wentz was healthy. They were the best team in the league, easily. I still think the Eagles will make the Super Bowl, and put up a good fight against the Patriots.
NBA: NBA Finals
Prediction: Golden State Warriors vs Cleveland Cavaliers
Golden State 4, Cavaliers 2
I hate to see this same match up year after year, but it’s bound to happen. The Warriors are the Warriors, and the only teams that could take them down are the Rockets and Cavaliers. The Cavaliers should start gaining some momentum when Isaiah Thomas returns tomorrow. I expect the Cavs to put up a good fight this year, and be more competitive than the last finals.
NHL: Stanley Cup Playoffs
Prediction: Las Vegas Golden Knights vs Tampa Bay Lightning
Golden Knights 4, Lightning 3
Wouldn’t be something if the Golden Knights made it to the Stanley Cup and won it in the first season ever. That would be legendary. I hope this happens, so much. I don’t really keep up with the NHL too much, but I hope this match up comes true. Go Golden Knights!
MLB: World Series
Prediction: NY Yankees vs Los Angeles Dodgers
NY Yankees 4, Dodgers 3
The Yankees are for sure going to be the team to beat after acquiring Giancarlo Stanton this offseason. Aaron Judge and Stanton on the same team is wild. I think the Dodgers will be good again, and make it back to the World Series. I think the Astros will give the Yankees a great fight in the ALCS though.
NCAA Football: National Championship
Prediction: Oklahoma vs Clemson
Oklahoma 35, Clemson 28
Baker Mayfield. That’s all I have to say. I think he’ll lead Oklahoma to the win in the championship. However, it is a tough road for both Oklahoma and Clemson. Georgia and Alabama are no slouch. They will give both those teams a run for their money. That’s why they are in the playoffs. I think it’ll be a great game, but I give Oklahoma the edge.
NCAA Basketball: National Championship
Prediction: Michigan State vs Oklahoma
Michigan State 73, Oklahoma 65
Michigan State looks amazing this season. They are all around talented. Miles Bridges will take them far, as long as he gets the support he has this season. They like to push it, and this team is very athletic. I don’t see an early round exit this year at all. The shocking pick is Oklahoma. It is March Madness so you never really know what will happen. Trae Young is the most talented guard freshman this season. He tossed out 22 assists in one game. I think he’s talented enough to take that team to the national championship. I don’t see Michigan State losing to them though. Michigan State is way more balanced. Should be a good game still though.
