Steve and I will go head-to-head throughout the season. Here is our updated records on the Tribskin Pick’em thread.
Robledo: Last week/Total: 13-8/61-21
Ramirez: Last week/Total: 11-10/53-29
Last Week: In three years of doing this, we both have never had a worse week. Steve barely stayed about .500 and I had eight losses. I completely missed on the big three, taking Charter Oak, Monrovia and Damien, who all lost. Other mild surprises included West Covina beating Glendora, and Bonita knocking off unbeaten Baldwin Park. Workman also suffered its first loss.
This week: Calpreps projects St. Bonny as a 24-point favorite over Bishop Amat, which I don’t think will be that lopsided, but the Lancers will suffer their first defeat. Damien and Charter Oak is interesting because both teams are coming off losses and are hungry. Whether you call me a homer or not, Charter Oak did more to lose that game against Rancho than Rancho did to win it, so I’m taking the Chargers again this week. Walnut hosting Arroyo is an intriguing game. After the Mustangs narrowly beat Covina, I like the Knights to bounce back from their loss to Claremont and get a win. The Montview gets going this week, look for Azusa, Gladstone and La Puente to all start 1-0.
