Week 3 must have been the peak of my predicting prowess (going 20-4) as I went 17-7 in Week 4 and 16-8 last week. On the year, I'm a respectable 70.7 percent right (82-34). I hope to have that percentage up to around 75 by the end of the regular season. That entails me going 115-31 the rest of the way.
Below are the 22 other games of note I'll try our best at predicting a winner in addition to the two deeper-dive games: The Colony downing Frisco Liberty; Wylie coming out on top of Lakeview Centennial
#5 Southlake Carroll (4-0) vs. #3 Denton Guyer (4-0)
We like what Guyer has been doing so far this season between Kaedric Cobbs and Eli Stowers having knocked off Aledo on the road, downing Cedar Hill at the Cotton Bowl and rolling past North Crowley and Keller Central. This was a four-point game at Carroll last year, so we're going to pick Guyer to win at home this year. But regardless of the outcome, this 6A Top 10 matchup should be a good'n.
This probably should have been published yesterday, but better late than never, right? Each week, on top of the bigger DFW football breakdowns that will be published, we'll predict 24 notable games based on highly scientific research methodologies.
Or off gut instinct. Or flip a coin. Throw darts a board. Whatever strikes our fancy is how we'll handle this.
But since we missed yesterday's notable games - listed here - we'll only have 20 this week, which includes the longer breakdown predictions. And for full disclosure, the four teams that won in our list from Thursday - Flower Mound (over Keller Fossil Ridge); Arlington Bowie (over Flower Mound Marcus); McKinney Boyd (over Garland Naaman Forest); Prestonwood Christian (over Wylie) - would have been totally picked to win beforehand. Scouts honor.
All jokes aside, here are this week's projects. And including Thursday's matchup between Plano West and Frisco Reedy, we're off to a good start at 1-0.
