Let’s play the over/under game

With no football in town tonight, I thought I would play Aram’s over/under game for the first round of the playoffs. It’s real simple I’ll put out a number to a corresponding stat or situation and then give my take…You can give yours

Charter Oak’s chances of knocking off second-seed Vista Murrieta
OVER/UNDER: 25 percent
Fred’s bet: UNDER — still not buying it

Bishop Amat’s 50-50 amount on Friday Night
OVER/UNDER: $2,500
Fred’s bet: OVER — I’ve seen it climb to $2,800 before.

Number of teams from the Montview and Mission Valley League left after the first-round of the Mid-Valley.
Fred’s bet:
OVER – Some think Azusa and Arroyo aren’t slam dunks, so the rest must be in deep trouble. I have them both winning, however.

Number of times we quote a coach in the paper on Saturday blaming the ref’s for what happened.
Freds bet:
UNDER — Though I have witnessed it too many times before.

Number of yards quarterback Steven Rivera throws for against San Dimas
Fred’s bet:
UNDER — They need to mix up the run and pass.

Number of times Aram reports “Breaking News” before Monday.
Fred’s bet:
OVER — I would hate to have his phone bill.

Total rushing yards for Amat running back Jalen Moore against Tesoro’s powerful D-Line
Fred’s bet: UNDER — He gets his 100, but they need to air it out too.

Number of total rushing yards for West Covina against Bellflower
Fred’s bet: OVER — Seen it too many times against better teams

With 16 area football teams in the playoffs, how many will be left after Friday’s first round?
Fred’s bet: OVER — I like the favorites, plus a couple upset.

  • Nice game, Freddie.

    I will put all the money in the Amat 50/50 on OVER 1 1/2 teams left from the Montview/Mission Valley.

    I’ve got Azusa and Koffmead moving on without a doubt.

  • don’t buy the hype

    I’m sayin 150+ for Jalen Moore. Barnes sold you a bill of goods on that Tesoro front 7. One of the reasons they give up few yards rushing (although even South Hills went for 200+) is their pass coverage is so poor.

    You forgot one line Fred;

    Total number of Bishop Amat threads you will post
    OVER/UNDER 300
    Fred’s bet: Over – 350, you can never have too many Amat hits!

  • Colt74

    Agree with Freds picks. Seems like you left off 2 other important lines:

    Number of In-N-Out Double Doubles Animal Style that Aram partakes of at the Bishop Amat Game
    Colt74 PICK : UNDER – Too many other good things to sample at the tailgate party.

    Number of times Mike (the cousin) types during the COVERITLIVE that “he can not feel his fingers!”.
    Colt74 PICK: UNDER – Bishop Amat has more class than Alemany. Plus the emergency hand warmers in his jacket pocket.

    That number better be under!

    Like Fred mentioned yesterday, I too haven’t forgiven that school in Mission Hills for their poor treatment of the out of town media… I was not prepared for the elements as I’m usually up in a cozy press box…

    Big props to all the schools who were ALL hospitable to me this year: ELAC, Citrus College, Ganesha High, Rowland High, San Dimas High, West Covina High & Loyola High.

    BTW- I’ll take the over on Charter Oak’s chances vs Vista Murrieta… Did anyone think Muir would take CO to the brink last year??

  • just askin’

    Mike Robledo – since they weren’t mentioned – does that mean Bishop Amat was NOT hospitable?

  • Mike Robledo

    Amat is hospitable to all media…

    last year I saw them accommodate The Trib, LAT, LA Daily News & IBN in their press box for the Notre Dame game… then for the MD playoff game, FSN broadcasted with the same cast minus IBN..

    If Amat wins Friday, I’ll look forward to the roadie either to OC or the LBC… i’m sure they’ll treat us better than Alemany…

  • NotSince1995
