If Sportslook doesn’t come away victorious, they will end up entering the playoffs as a bottom-two seed. Once again, Sportslook’s fate relies on Tyrell Holmes and Scott Benzing, while Run TMC has a good squad that passes the ball well and plays an uptempo style, one that Sportslook will have to try to keep up with to keep the score close.
