5/16 Update - Handicapping 2015 USTA League 40+ Nationals - Who are the favorites to win it all in the women's 40 & over division?

This is the second update to my Nationals Previews taking a look at the strongest women's teams by level in the 40 & over division of USTA League tennis.  Strength of a team is based on taking an average of the Estimated Dynamic NTRP Ratings I calculate for each team.

I am continuing with using the top-8 average which I did last time.
