PLL Bets Week 2: Charlotte


PLL Bets Week 2: Charlotte

Week 2 of the 2023 PLL season descends on Charlotte and we are poised for some great matchups. The big news is with the NLL season finally over, so we will see the Chaos at close to full strength. A week removed from a championship celebration will give the Chaos some much needed offensive power in the lineup from the guys coming over from the Bandits. The big question for this week will be how everyone adjusts to the performances from Week 1. Will Ryder Garnsey have another monster game? Can Cross Ferrara have another big game for the Chrome? How does Mike Sisselberger matchup against Connor Farrell after a phenomenal debut? Let’s take a look at the PLL bets for all four games.

Chrome(+1.5) vs. Archers(-1.5)

Without Dylan Molloy in the lineup, what does that do for the rest of the Chrome offense? Do Jackson Morrill and Cross Ferrara have the same production carry over to Week 2? That’s going to depend on their ability to get possessions from the faceoff.

Connor Farrell going 50% last week kept the Chrome status quo, but he’ll square off against rookie Mike Sisselberger who crushed the Cannons last week going 24 for 30 at the dot.

Pick: Archers

Waterdogs(-1.5) vs. Redwoods(+1.5)

Can the Redwoods get a second week of insane production out of Ryder Garnsey and Wes Berg? Dillon Ward is unavailable this week for the Waterdogs, but they are poised for another great week.

This game is going to come down to midfield production and for the Redwoods to break through, they’re going to have to get more out of their three-headed monster this week.

Pick: Waterdogs

Whipsnakes(+1.5) vs. Atlas(-1.5)

Can Jack Concannon bounce back after only saving 38% of his shots last week? If history tells us something, he most certainly will. If that happens, then the Atlas, under first year Head Coach Mike Pressler have a shot at taking down the Whips who get Zed Williams back from the NLL.

The Atlas need Chris Gray to have his usual day to match Jeff Teat’s production, as the Whips will look to stop Teat.  

The equalizer for the Atlas is Trevor Baptiste at the X. If he can have a big day and control the middle of the field the Atlas may have the formula to combat all the weapons on offense for the Whipsnakes.

Pick: Atlas

Chaos vs. Cannons

The schedule certainly doesn’t favor the Cannons as they get the fully loaded Chaos for the first time this season. The Cannons defense will be put to the test as the Chaos with Josh Byrne and Dhane Smith can attack you from anywhere.

Big time Blaze Riorden saved 72% of the shots he faced last week in a losing effort. Don’t expect him to see as many shots, but expect his usual game as the Chaos look poised to take this one.  

Pick: Chaos

Something to Watch – How will teams handle the Friday/Saturday format as opposed to the Saturday/Sunday? Work commitments and travel can be a big factor in production especially on those Friday games. Good luck with everyone’s PLL bets!
