There are 48 regular season games to pick this year and the chances of a 75 percent prediction record is slim-to-none. It would require a 45-3 record the last two weeks of the year, and I'm 100% sure I'll get more than three wrong this week. I went 19-5 last week, which is 79.2 percent right, missing big time on DeSoto beating Mansfield Summit, Dallas Carter beating Dallas Hutchins and Dunne knocking off Lynch.
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 for Thursday and Friday:
Keller Central clinching a playoff spot and eliminating Keller Timber Creek; Prestonwood bouncing back and beating Bishop Lynch at home.
The first two games are Thursday night matchups; the next 19 are Friday night games; last one is Saturday. There are a lot of playoff implications in these games as well, so hold onto you butts, because here...we...go. Week 10 picks!
Grapevine (5-3, 2-2) vs. #2 Denton Ryan (8-0, 5-0)
Ryan is in. There's no doubt about that. Grapevine has work to do. It is in fourth right now and owns the tie-breaker over Denton, which is a game. Grapevine can clinch with a win and a Heritage win or a Denton loss. However, it'll have to wait a week as Ryan rolls here at home.
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.
