Week 5 high school football predictions

For Week 4, I was 24-8 (one game I picked both teams, so I’m not counting that one) and I’m now 125-44-1 picking games this season.

So, here are my picks this week.

Fearless CIF-SS Football Championship game predictions

I had a really rough quarterfinal round, going only 7-6 in picking winners. Last week went much better, as I went 5-1, losing only the San Gorgonio game. For the season , I am 299-81 and have gotten the winning team and margin exactly right seven times.

San Bernardino County has only one championship game, but I will pick winners for all the divisions that include county teams. How much could rain play a factor? Hard to tell, but but it could make things interesting.

EAST VALLEY DIVISION
Saturday at Jurupa Hills
Jurupa Hills 42, St. Margaret’s 40
CENTRAL DIVISION
Saturday at Rancho Verde
Rancho Verde 28, Heritage 14
EASTERN DIVISION
Friday at Norte Vista
Citrus Hill 48, Norte Vista 31
INLAND DIVISION
Friday at Corona Centennial
Vista Murrieta 59, Corona Centennial 52
NORTHEAST DIVISION
Saturday at Salesian
Mission Prep 42, Salesian 32
