Week eight really is when you see who will be true contenders and what teams fall by the wayside. Why waste time? Let’s get into this week’s picks!
Record this season: 70-23 overall, 11-3 in week 7
Fostoria vs Genoa - Really tough loss for Fostoria last week. They will rebound against a Genoa team that’s down for the first time in more than a decade.
Arcadia vs North Baltimore - I have a feeling we’ll see a lot of offense in this game. Last season they combined for 100 some total points. I don’t think we see quite that output tonight. North Baltimore will have a couple highlight plays, but they won’t have enough. Taking Arcadia in this game.
Pandora-Gilboa vs Arlington - Lots of fun games in the BVC this week. Arlington’s offense has been a lot more fluid once they gave Connor Foust more touches. I will take the Red Devils over the Rockets.
Vanlue vs Cory-Rawson - Cory-Rawson hasn’t been able to stop much throughout the season. Including giving up 51 to Crestline last week. I’ll go with Vanlue.
Crestline vs Riverdale - Riverdale bounces back after a tough couple of weeks losing to Arcadia on a late field goal and running into a really good Liberty-Benton squad.
McComb vs Van Buren - McComb by a bunch.
Wynford vs Carey - Very interesting game in the NTAC. Both teams still fighting for the league crown. Going with Wynford over Carey in this one.
Buckeye Central vs Mohawk - Mohawk keeps Buckeye Central winless.
Seneca East vs Upper Sandusky - Seneca East rebounds after an overtime loss to Carey.
Findlay vs St. John’s - St. John’s has looked amazing this year. They took Central Catholic down to the wire. Taking the Titans over the Trojans.
Bellevue vs Tiffin Columbian - Big SBC game between a 5-2 team and a 6-1 squad. I think we’ll see another close game that the Tornadoes win.
Hopewell-Loudon vs Danbury - Chieftains big over winless Danbury.
Whetstone vs Northwood - Whetstone acts as the replacement game with Toledo Christain playing eight man football this season. They are a division two school from Columbus. They’re 3-4 but those wins are against teams that combine to have just two wins in total. A win here should really help the Rangers who are currently outside of the playoff picture despite behind 7-0.
Hardin Northern vs Elgin - I’ll bet it has been a while since Hardin Northern was above .500 for the season. That’ll change after this week.
Liberty-Benton vs Leipsic - I won’t pick this game since it’s the game I’m calling. It should be a fun one! Join Matt Cotman and I live on Mix 96.7 WBVI and online here
