Aram and I will go head-to-head in Tribskin Pick’em throughout the season for our annual dinner bet.
Last Week: Robledo (11-8); Tolegian (13-6).
Season: Robledo (86-43); Tolegian (84-45).
Last Week:: Since taking a six-game lead a few weeks back, Aram has chipped away and cut my lead to two. We both missed by not taking Los Altos, Duarte, Diamond Bar, Temple City and Workman, but I also missed not taking Charter Oak, El Monte or Los Alamitos. Aram missed another by not taking Kaiser.
This week:: It has been extremely tough picking games this year and this week’s lineup is another example. There are maybe five or six I feel good about, the rest are up for grabs. Do you really know about Charter Oak-Chino HIlls? Damien-Ayala? La Puente-Sierra Vista? Glendora-Alta Loma? South El Monte-Rosemead? Gabrielino-Mountain View? Los Altos-Rowland? Diamond Bar-Diamond Ranch? The way upsets and surprises are happening each week, it’s an “Any Given Friday” type of season.
