Last week was rough, going 15-9 (62.5%) and pretty much ending any shot of going 75 percent on the season. I have to go 64-12 the last regular season weeks (or 21.3 wins per week) to get there - it's obviously not happening. Now the goal is just to get back to 70 percent on the year. My overall record is 130-58 (.692) through eight weeks.
Below are the 22 other games of note that I'll try my best at predicting a winner for in addition to the deeper-dive games in 7-6A:
DeSoto downing Mansfield Summit; Cedar Hill defeating South Grand Prairie.
Lakeview Centennial (5-2, 3-1) vs. Sachse (5-2, 3-1)
Everyone is beating each other up in 10-6A. It's a four-way tie (all at 3-1) for first with Centennial at the top holding the tie-breaker over Wylie, which holds the tie-breaker over Sachse and Rowlett, and Naaman Forest is in 5th at 2-2. Sachse was the pick to win district, so we'll roll with the 'Stangs here.
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.
