I'd laugh if it went down that way, wrote this just in case it does, but obviously the odds of guessing this and being 100% correct are like winning the 649, highly unlikely. But the final outcome at least would be a sick guess. Chicago vs St-Louis would be epic imo.
Just to go back to the 1st round, I think the most likely winners that I'd be willing to bet $ on: Washington, Carolina, Pittsburgh, I just have a strong gut feeling those 3 teams will move on to the 2nd round.
