T2) Jeff Hardy: 7 points
T2) Christopher Daniels: 7 points
T2) Mr. Anderson: 7 points
T2) Austin Aries: 7 points

4) Bobby Roode, Jay Bradley, Joseph Park, Hernandez and Kazarian with no points.
Early Predictions on Who Will Win the Bound For Glory Series
With Magnus beginning to play a much larger role on Impact! Wrestling, expect the British wrestler to evolve into a serious contender throughout the Bound For Glory Series battle. Magnus, who features a balanced display of power and technical wrestling inside the ring, has all the makings to become a strong World Heavyweight Champion down the road in TNA.
Hardy, who recently held the World Heavyweight title before losing it to Bully Ray at the TNA Lockdown pay-per-view, should also be competing higher on the standings chart. However, don't expect Hardy to win the Bound For Glory Series, as his chances are grim due to his recent title reign.
Meanwhile, Joe has all the potential to become the sleeper pick of the Bound For Glory Series. Joe, who could quietly sneak into the top spot on the standings, is due for a strong run in the series. Another sleeper pick in the series is Styles. However, Styles is currently undergoing a major character change from his past days in TNA, and a World Heavyweight title run may not be in the works just yet.
Finally, don't expect Park, Hernandez, Kazarian and Bradley to climb higher in the series. All of them should remain lower on the standings throughout the remainder of the series.
