Week 13 high school football fearless predictions

We’re down to the CIF-SS football semifinals. While I won’t personally be at any games this week, I will be very interested in how the games turn out. Last week in the quarterfinals, I went 9-3 (missing on Colony, San Gorgonio and Big Bear games) and I am 297-86-2 this season and I have correctly gotten the winning team and exact winning margin 10 times.

Here we go, with semifinal predictions on both semifinals in divisions where we have teams still alive.

Week 12 Fearless CIF-SS football predictions

Not a bad first week of the playoffs for me picking games. I went 21-3 in all, missing the Kaiser, Hesperia and Rancho Cucamonga games. I am taking credit for a Colony win, even though I technically typed in that La Canada would win and lose that game. In all this season, I am 288-83-2 and 10 times I have correctly predicted the exact winning margin of the game.

Here are my predictions on this week’s playoff games for San Bernardino County teams

CENTRAL DIVISION
Glendora 34, Colony 31
EAST VALLEY DIVISION
Saddleback Valley Christian 41, Silver Valley 37

Week 10 Fearless/Fearful high school football predictions

I’ve been fairly consistent of late picking winners: my week 9 record was 25-8, with my total record as 244-77-2. In addition I picked 2 more games correctly, with the exact winning margin (but not exact score). I correctly said Upland would beat Rancho Cucamonga by 18 and that Rubidoux would beat Pacific by 8 points. But on the other side, I always seem to have problems with at least 1 league. Most of the year, it’s been the Mountain Valley League. Last week, it was the Ambassador League, when I went 0-3.

Here are my Week 10 picks:

Ambassador League
Arrowhead Christian 49, Western Christian 31
Linfield Christian 31, Ontario Christian 21
Aquinas 35, Notre Dame 31
Baseline League
Chino Hills 49, Los Osos 10
Rancho Cucamonga 24, Damien 7
Upland 28, Etiwanda 10
Citrus Belt League
Redlands East Valley 31, Carter 14
Cajon 28, Eisenhower 16
Yucaipa 24, Redlands 14
Citrus Valley 28, Miller 7

Week 9 high school football fearless/fearful predictions

I think I had another good week last week, but of course I was 0-2 predicting in the unpredictable Mountain Valley League. (What do I know?). Overall, I was 25-7 for the week and I am 219-69-2. For the week I also picked two margins exactly correct: I said Rancho Cucamonga would beat Etiwanda 24-17 actual score was 16-9. I also said Carter would beat Miller 42-0, actual score was 49-7.

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.
