Week 2 predictions and more

Week Two has arrived and I’m back for more picks. I went 6-4 last week (not including my two correct college football predictions) and I’ve decided to increase my picks to 12 games this week.

Walled Lake Western at Livonia Franklin — The Warriors will have the unenviable task of taking on Franklin after it lost a heartbreaker to Livonia Stevenson last week. Pick: Franklin
Lakeland at Canton — The Eagles face another tough test in Canton, but will be up to the task. Pick: Lakeland
Troy at Royal Oak — The Colts appear ready to prove last season wasn’t a fluke. Pick: Troy
Troy Athens at Clarkston — The Red Hawks gave up 42 points to Stoney Creek, how many do you think the Wolves can score? Pick: Clarkston
Birmingham Seaholm at Southfield — The Maples offense will have more success this week. Pick: Seaholm
Milford at South Lyon — Hopefully these two teams will still play every year despite the new KLAA because it’s usually a good one. Pick: South Lyon
West Bloomfield at Lake Orion — The Dragons may be young, but they won’t let their home fans down this week. Pick: Lake Orion
Stoney Creek at Rochester Adams — The Highlanders are scary good and won’t let a cross-town rival get a W at their place. Pick: Adams
Orchard Lake St. Mary’s at Detroit U-D Jesuit — The Eaglets 0-2. I don’t buy it Pick: St. Mary’s
Novi at Walled Lake Central — The Wildcats will be rebound from the Milford loss with a solid victory over the Vikings. Pick: Novi

Birmingham Brother Rice at Muskegon — Two of the biggest team’s in Division 2 square off. This one will likely be worth the long drive for Rice fans. Pick: Brother Rice
Oak Park at Southfield-Lathrup — The Chargers won’t stop Edwin Baker, but will do enough to get the win. Pick: Lathrup

And for Oakland University basketball fans. The loss of Tim Williams hurts. He had a ton of potential, but made some bad decisions. He won’t be back and has left the school. I wish him good luck and hopefully he can rebound from this.

Also I’m glad to see Shane Lawal will play for Wayne State this season. I always enjoyed watching Shane play and he was a fun guy to talk to. I’m sure he will be successful this season for the Warriors.
