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. In addition, I got the winning margin exactly correct on two games: I correctly said Arrowhead Christian would beat Crean Lutheran by 28 and Granite Hills would beat Indian Springs by 20, giving me three exact margins this season.

So, here are my picks this week.
