Week 7 predictions

Last week I stepped it up and went a respectable 10-5 after a horrible 5-7 performance in Week 5. But that’s not good enough. You loyal blog readers deserve better so I’m calling my shot this week. A perfect 13-0. That’s right I’m predicting a perfect week. If I’m wrong, then I will bring in some outside help for next week. Here are the picks for the top 13 Oakland County matchups.

Auburn Hills Avondale (4-2) at Hazel Park (4-2) — The Yellow Jackets have lost two straight after a 4-0 start, a loss here and their playoff hopes will be in serious danger. Pick: Hazel Park
Bloomfield Hills Lahser (5-1) at Ferndale (6-0) — Consider this game the OAA Blue championship game. The Eagles have played a pretty easy schedule, time to find out if they are for real. Pick: Lahser
West Bloomfield (3-3) at Troy Athens (2-4) — The Lakers could be a dangerous football team in the playoffs, but first they have to make it. Pick: West Bloomfield
Clarkston (4-2) at Oak Park (2-4) — The Wolves can’t afford a loss here and need to show their defense can stop someone, but stopping Edwin Baker won’t be easy. Pick: Clarkston
Rochester Adams (6-0) at Farmington Hills Harrison (4-2) — The Hawks are in danger of missing the playoffs, but don’t count them out just yet. Pick: Adames
Farmington (3-3) at Stoney Creek (3-3) — One teams playoff hopes end tonight. Pick: Stoney Creek
Warren Fitzgerald (6-0) at Madison Heights Madison (4-2) — The Eagles have a shot at the MAC Silver title with a victory. Pick: Fitzgerald
Walled Lake Western (4-2) at Walled Lake Central (2-4) — The Vikings will be fired up to face the cross-town rivals Warriors so this should be a good one. Pick: Western
Novi (5-1) at Northville (4-2) — The KLAA Central comes down to this game. Not sure what the tiebreaker is, but I don’t think it will matter. Pick: Novi


Birmingham Brother Rice (3-3) vs. Detroit U-D Jesuit (0-6) — Who would have thought the Warriors would need a win this bad against Jesuit? Pick: Brother Rice
Dearborn Divine Child (4-2) at Orchard Lake St. Mary’s (3-3) — This is no guaranteed win for the Eaglets, who are playing for their playoff lives. Pick: OLSM
Troy (4-2) at Southfield-Lathrup (3-3) — The Colts end the Chargers’ playoff aspirations. Pick: Troy
Pontiac Notre Dame Prep (2-4) at Novi Detroit Catholic Central (3-2) — The Shamrocks are in good position to make it to the Prep Bowl championship game. Pick: Catholic Central

Last week: 10-5; Season: 47-26, .644 winning percentage
