People have been asking how the Silverbacks only need 3 points to clinch a playoff spot, so I'll explain things, while also going through the other teams.
The magic number right now to clinch a playoff spot is 39 points. Why? Because the highest number of points that any of the lowest four teams can reach is 38. Right now, that team is Carolina, who has 26 points with 4 matches remaining. Anything over 38 at this point clinches a spot.
That being said, Seattle (42), Portland and Montreal (41 each) and Rochester (39) have all clinched spots.
The Silverbacks are sitting on 36 with 5 matches remaining. A pretty good spot, if you ask me.
Now, this is assuming Carolina wins out, which they probably won't do. But if they do, here's what the remaining teams need, bearing in mind that only California has been officially eliminated.
Atlanta: 3 points, 5 matches remaining.
Puerto Rico: 6 points, 4 matches remaining.
Vancouver: 8 points, 4 matches remaining.
Charleston: 10 points, 5 matches remaining.
That would complete your 8-team playoffs. Miami, Carolina and Minnesota all need to win out and hope for other teams to lose.
