I finally had a perfect week of picks!
It might have helped some of those picks that had games moved to Saturday because of all the terrible weather in Northwest Ohio on Friday night, but a win is a win is a win, right?
No time to bask in perfection for too long. It’s time for the picks for week nine!
My record so far through eight weeks is now 77-18 after going 12-0 in week eight.
Liberty-Benton vs Arcadia - Arcadia won big last week over Vanlue, but LB is basically the polar opposite of Vanlue in terms of the BVC. I have LB winning big.
Vanlue vs Cory-Rawson - Postponed to 10/29
North Baltimore vs McComb - McComb, again, could score 100 points in this one if they wanted to. I think the Panthers win this one big.
Pandora-Gilboa vs Riverdale - PG actually played LB really tough last week. Riverdale wasn’t as fortunate last week vs Arlington. I have the Rockets winning this one big.
Eastwood vs Fostoria - Postponed due to covid issues within the Fostoria program.
Elmwood vs Genoa - Elmwood has been a really good football team as of late. It doesn’t look like they handled the weather issues last week very well even though they still pulled it out against Lake. Genoa has played pretty good football this year, but Elmwood is having a special season. I will go with Elmwood to win this one.
Wynford vs Carey - Carey is absolutely rolling right now, and Wynford doesn’t have enough to stop them. Give me the Blue Devils in this one.
Buckeye Central vs Mohawk - Buckeye Central hasn’t scored in their last two games. They will probably score in this one, but Mohawk is going to score more.
Perkins vs Columbian - TC has struggled the last two weeks in losses to Clyde and Bellevue. Jalen Santoro has got a good thing going at Perkins and he returns to the stadium he played at in college. I think it should be a good game, but I feel like Clyde wins this one.
Tiffin Calvert vs Hopewell-Loudon - Hopewell-Loudon continues to roll in spite of a few injuries. Calvert has had a better second half of the season. I think Hopewell-Loudon wins this one though.
Edon vs Lakota - Lakota is a pretty good team this year. They’re 6-2 with those losses coming to Hopewell-Loudon and Elmwood. Edon though is 7-1 with that lone loss coming by one point to Norwalk St. Paul. I have the Bombers winning this one.
Northwood vs Ottawa Hills - Ottawa Hills is 5-3 while Northwood is 3-3 due to missing a few games because of covid issues. Northwood has only lost to Ottawa Hills twice since joining the TAAC. I have the Rangers winning this one.
Findlay vs St. John’s - Findlay has been rolling of late with wins over Fremont Ross, St. Francis and Clay the last three weeks. I think they keep that going tonight against St. John’s.
Hardin Northern vs Ridgemont - Hardin Northern is coming off a big win against Crestline. Ridgemont sits at 1-6 with that win coming against Vanlue. I have the polar bears winning this one.
Van Buren vs Arlington - I won’t pick this one since it’s the game I will be calling tonight. Hear all the action with Matt Cotman and I on Classic Hits 96-7 right here.
Enjoy the games everyone!
