2020 is a couple days in and this year can hold many great moments. But when will these moments occur? These are my predictions for the year in sports for 2020.
1. March Madness will be insane
We are 2 months into college basketball and seven number one teams have arose. That is a record for college basketball. There isn’t a team I see that is dominate and the ones that I think could be, have had surreal losses.
2. Baltimore is in the Super Bowl
Look, no one has beaten the Ravens since week 5. They run an offense that no one has stopped and have the best secondary in the league with one of the best scoring defenses with CB Marlon Humphrey, CB Marcus Peters, and LB Matt Judon, all pro-bowlers. If they do play the Chiefs in the AFC Championship, they are going to beat them at home and redeem themselves from week 3.
3. Clippers and Lakers Western Conference Final
A seven game series played in the same building would be pretty fun. These teams are the best in the league. The Clippers haven’t had the start I expected with 11 losses, but they will turn it around because their chemistry will continue to grow with the new all-star in Kawhi Leonard.
4. The 76ers will play in June
I think the Sixers are the best. Look, they have 14 losses, but it is a completely different new team with none of the starting line up playing together before. Horford was recently acquired, with Harris, and Simmons and Embiid aren’t even 25. They will gain chemistry and the reason they win is their size. They would beat the Bucks or Celtics because they are the biggest team in the league. They have the size to isolate Giannis, just like they did against the Bucks on Christmas Day holding him to 18 points, a low for him. The Celtics would lose because they are a smaller team and couldn’t compete with the Sixers, as they already loss to them twice.
5. Lamar Jackson will be an MVP. Again
We already know Jackson will win this year, but he will again next year. I don’t see him getting worse. I don’t see him getting hurt because he plays like a running back and can take hits. It is peculiar how he can take hits and not get hurt as a QB. I don’t see him not continue to win MVP’s.
