As we have come to expect, Prather has put together another solid year, including winning the PBA Tournament of Champions back in March.

He’s also the defending champion in the Playoffs and certainly wants to make it back-to-back years as champion.

You could say Kent is playing with house money as Chris Via had a chance to eliminate him in the last round with a double but left a wicked ringing 10 pin in the final frame.

Who has the edge? Kent bowled decent against Via but you have to think it’s going to take more than 218 to take down the defending champ. Prather just has too much on his side to lose this match, so the edge goes to him.
