Perk’s Picks for the 1A & 1AA NCHS Football Playoffs-Round Two
By Anthony Perkins
Hello football fans and welcome to the second round of the playoffs. Last week in the first round of the 1A and 1AA pairings the first four seeds had BYES and with the abbreviated schedule I picked 7 out of 8 winners. Six of the winners covered the spread but only three were within 10 ten points
In the 2A & 2AA and 3A & 3AA brackets there were no BYES so they had a full slate of games in those two/four classifications. I picked 15 out of 16 winners in the 2A and 2AA brackets with 11 of the 15 winners covering the spread and six of the winners were within seven points.
Over in the 3A & 3AA brackets I picked 11 out of 16 winners but only four covered the spread and no games were within seven points.
That’s a total of 33 correct picks out of 40 games for the 1A thru 3AA classifications.
Here are the pairings and my picks for this week’s games in the 1A and 1AA brackets.
