I have to step things up this week after going 7-5 last week. So I’m not going to waste any time with a clever intro and get straight to the picks.

Lapeer West (1-1) at Oxford (2-0) — The Wildcats take a big step towards a Flint Metro title. Pick: Oxford

Waterford Mott (2-0) at Walled Lake Western (1-1) — The Warriors will kick off KLAA North play with a victory. Pick: Western

Howell (2-0) at Milford (2-0) — I’ve picked against the Mavericks two weeks in a row and they have won both times. Let’s make it three. Pick: Howell

Clarkston (1-1) at Troy (2-0) — Whoever is working the scoreboard at Troy is going to earn their paycheck tonight. These two teams could combine for over 90 points. Pick: Clarkston

Rochester Hills Lutheran Northwest (2-0) at Bloomfield Hills Cranbrook Kingswood (0-2) — The Crusaders look like they have turned things around this season. Pick: Northwest
