Perk’s Picks for the 3A & 3AA 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 3A and 3AA pairings we had a full slate of 16 games in both the East and West brackets but I’ll leave the East to some of my cohorts that know those teams better that I do. You’ll want to check out the articles of Jim West in particular. 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.
In the abbreviated schedule of the 1A & 1AA brackets (because of the top four seeds having BYES) 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 and 2AA brackets I picked 15 out of 16 winners with 11 of the 15 winners covering the spread and six of the winners 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 3A and 3AA brackets.
