Some Chicago Predictions

Without picking specific teams I'ma putting on my swami's turban, consulting the Magic 8-ball, throwing out the leftover tea leaves and offering up a few predictions for the PSP Chicago Open beginning later this week. Feel free to join the fun in the comments--but keep in mind VFTD doesn't grade on a curve.
More than 90% of the pro games will end on points scored and not on the time clock running out. And that includes Challengers.
By tourney's end a first time team will join the Champions bracket for the next event.
Three of the four semifinalists in D1 will be different from last event.
All the fields will run ahead of or easily maintain their projected schedules.
There will be at least two injuries on the pro fields that knock players out of the event.
As many divisional teams as will love this layout and event will be matched by those who wanta return to the status quo.
Dynasty will not make it three in a row.

There you go, slackers. Your turn. If any of y'all want to try and pick the podium in any division above D3-R24 VFTD will send any winners a free T-shirt. (Winning entries must be dated prior to start of the event.)

Race to 7 started in 2009 at the Phoenix Open, 548 Pro matches have been played using this format. 377 (68.8%) of these matches finish based on points. So I will take the under on your 90% prediction.

Thanks Cade for explaining the magnitude of my brilliance when I get this one right. :)

Pro predictions:

1. Impact
2. Ironmen
3. Tontons

(2nd and 3rd are long shots, I know, but it seems to me those are the 3 teams best suited for such an aggressive layout).

If the tempo picks up as you predict I can see Dynasty not making the podium. My picks for the podium are Impact, Heat and Damage :)

Dynasty
Impact
Xfactor

(Not in that particular order)

Damage? Not a chance on this layout, especially since teams are figuring out how to beat their flat back play style
