Week 3 went much better for both of us. Here's how I did calling against these spreads.

parentof2 - week 3 results Wrote:
-------------------------------------------------------

> - Edison won and covered, 28-13. The Eagles are
> quietly 3-1.

Correctly picked Edison to both win and to cover. Good for Edison to be 3-1. They haven't played much in the way of competition, but I think we're seeing them rise from the very bottom of National (which will be occupied by Lee, Annandale and Falls Church).
>
> 2. Langley (-8) @ George Mason
> - Langley won big, 48-13.

Correctly picked Langley to win and cover. People may not know this, but George Mason is either a AAA or AA school, and they don't play many local schools. Since Langley is 6A, they should have easily beat them.
>
> 3. Marshall (-7) @ Hayfield
> - Got this one wrong. Hayfield won 38-35 as
> Marshall missed the game tying FG as time expired.

Correctly picked Hayfield to win outright. FWIW, I think picking an underdog to win outright, or a favorite to win but not cover is easier than picking a favorite to cover. This had to be a heck of a game.

Correctly picked Fairfax to win and cover.
>

Correctly picked Mt. Vernon to both win and cover. You have to feel bad for Lee.
>
> 6. North Stafford @ Lake Braddock (-17)

Correctly picked Lake Braddock to win and cover, and not because of their insufferable fans, but in spite of them.

> - Herndon won 48-0, I can't believe it. Wow. OP

Correctly picked Herndon to win outright. OP isn't well known in Fairfax and Arlington, but I know that they are one of the bottom PWC teams, so I had a hunch Herndon would get the win. Congratulations to Herndon for breaking their multi-year losing streak.
>
> 8. Robinson (-21) @ Chantilly
> - Robinson won 35-24, failing to cover but Scott

Correctly picked Robo to win. Also correctly picked Robo not to cover.

I blew both ends of this pick. This Westfield performance was like your older brother's Westfield team.
>
> 10. Stone Bridge (-8) @ Colonial Forge
> - Stone Bridge won 20-14, just missing the cover
> by 2 points.

Good call on the spread. I picked Stone Bridge to win, and to cover, so I only got one end of the pick right.
>
> 11. T.C. Williams (-35) @ Stuart
> - T.C. blanked JEB 35-0, nailed this one!

Congratulations on nailing this spread. I never thought TCW would lose this game, but I didn't think they could cover a 35 point spread. I just wish Stuart would have returned some of the love I showed them and at least converted a field goal, or blocked an extra point, allowing me to get both ends of the pick right.

Wakefield indeed walked into a slaughter. I make no picks if the spread is >35 points. That's because it's hard to predict. On one hand, a team could be up be >35, then put all their sophomores in, who give up a couple of garbage time TDs to keep them from covering. Or, on the other hand, the favorite to keep their foot on the gas, as Centreville apparently did here. That's hard to predict, and why I avoid doing so.
>
> 13. Washington-Lee @ West Springfield (-10)
> - WS won 28-21, failing to cover.

I correctly took WS to win, but I thought they would also cover. W-L showed respectably against a good team and Yorktown had an impressive win as well. Could we all be underestimating Arlington football?
>
> 14. Woodson (-14) @ Falls Church
> - Woodson won and covered, 31-13. FC is not good
> this year.

I see that Woodson, our "blind squirrel" team got another win. I correctly picked Woodson to both win and cover, and I got both ends of that pick right. The spread was pretty close to on point. I agree that FC isn't good, but it's not like Woodson is, either. I had a third prediction here. I predicted that this win would be Woodson's "penultimate" win of the season. I don't know yet whether that will turn out (we won't know until season end), but I feel pretty good about that prediction.
>
> 15. Yorktown (-22) @ Oakton
> - Yorktown won big, 49-7.

I predicted Yorktown to win, but not to cover. Good win for the Patriots. Yorktown, Oakton, and Langley are the three teams I'm having the most trouble figuring out this season.

Thanks, again for posting spreads. I enjoy trying my luck against them. My picks:

No pick where the spread is >35 points. I really don't think you have much alternative. And what the heck is Lake Braddock doing scheduling Annandale? They need to pick on someone their own size.
>

Chantilly wins and covers. I think this is an intriguing game, and I think your predicted spread is going to be almost right on the money.
>

Robo wins and covers. I'm really happy for Edison; they have some of the same challenges that Lee has in fielding a good football team, but they have managed to get the most out of their limited resources. Still, Robo is way too much for them.
>

No pick with a spread >35 points. I join you in wishing that Fairfax would have put together a better OOD schedule. I think these things are arranged in two year cycles, and my theory is that this schedule was put together back when everyone thought Fairfax was a cupcake (including Fairfax), in an effort to get them at least some wins. I don't think anyone anticipated they would be good. The danger for them is that they aren't getting adequately tested before District play. How does playing Falls Church prepare you for Robo or Lake Braddock?

Sounds like nova fan must have been on the receiving end of quite a few “ultimate” wedgies from Woodson kids back when he was in high school. Hahaha.. weird to sound so bitter when talking about a struggling 3 win Fairfax county HS football team.

Now how about them Rebels (Lions)!!

This is a tough one to figure out. I'm going to split the difference and take West Springfield to win, but not cover.

Madison has to be better than 0-3. I'll take them to win and to cover.

Lee is bad, but they have an excuse. So is Woodson, but they have no excuse. The fact that you only made Woodson a 21 point favorite against Lee(!) says more about Woodson than it does about Lee. Still I think Woodson will win and cover, extending their winning streak to three, and getting their last win of this season.

No pick against a >35 point spread, but given how both teams did last week, I'm tempted to say that South County won't cover (they will win, though).

I agree. South Lakes wins and covers.

Stone Bridge wins and covers.

Herndon was playing a really bad team last week, and the close call against South Lakes can be explained by Herndon getting up for a rivalry game. I think TCW is too much for them. TCW wins and covers.

I'm starting to become a believer in Arlington football (at least NORTH Arlington football). W-L wins and covers.

I think West Po is a bit better. West Po wins and covers.

I can't believe that Yorktown would be competing in a game of the week, but they are. I think your older brother's Westfield is back, so I'll take them to win and cover, though I don't think they win by much more.

I was at the Mount Vernon-Centreville game. West Potomac wins by no less than 4 TDs.

Holy Crap!!!! Only 1 team in Class 6 C/D in the top 8 in the State Ranking!!

BTW, SoCo played the 1st half without their starting QB vs Westfield & Stone Bridge didn't play THEIR starting QB vs Freedom. So, those wins don't mean nearly as much as y'all thought they did!! Come late November, everything will pan out & we'll see what teams are still playing through Thanksgiving!!

Sounds like, maybe the truth hurts & this struck a nerve. So, please enlighten us upon your wisdom of why MaxPreps Sucks? They actually get things correct about 85% of the time. Of ourse if you're just a kid, we understand your limited resources and we'll just move on.

Yorktown had exactly two good chances to score and made the most of them, and Madison is struggling on offense after losing so much. Then compare who each has played and it is not even close. I expect Madison to roll tonight vs Langley (unless Langley really is having an above average season-but I know little about them). Yorktown and Westfield should be close unless the Westfield from last week shows up, then it will be a comfortable Westfield win.

Robinson gave up 28 to an average, at best, South Lakes and only won by 7, then let Chantilly put up 24 to win by 11. They crushed two horrible teams. About right where they belong at this point in the season.

Those games are still significant. For Stone Bridge they might have kept it closer if they had their starting QB but they are not beating Freedom this year.
South County did get a good late game effort from their QB coming back from an injury, but they made far too many mistakes and were being mostly handled until the 4th quarter. Furthermore, the South County defense is not great, IMO.

Great team win tonight!

Woodson is on a 3-game winning streak, with a record of 3-1!
The offense is starting to jell with Aidan and Kia leading the way.
The defense has been playing lights out the last 3 games.
All of the hard work in off season is now starting to pay off!
Look for the Cavs to be in contention for the Patriot District

It's a great day to be a Cav!

Congratulations on completing your 3 game winning streak. The question now is whether you're ready for your 6 game losing streak.

By the way, why is the final score of Woodson's game last night against Lee/Lewis being treated like a state secret? It's not posted anywhere. All I see (here) is 41-7 midway thru the 4th.

The final was 49-14, Lewis got a mercy TD. Will TJ beat Lewis? I’d say yes.

Coach Henderson has Woodson playing well at the right time

Looks for them to win at least 3 maybe 4 of the next 6 games.
That should qualify them for the playoffs, and I am not sure a lot of teams will want to play them come playoff time!

Fun fact: Woodson allowed Lee to score 14 points. Those 14 point are more than the total number of points that Lee scored in their first three games combined.

1. Annandale @ Lake Braddock (-45)
- The Bruins did indeed roll on Homecoming, winning 62-7. Side note: I really like the yellow jerseys they wore Friday night. LB was up 56-0 at halftime.

2. Chantilly (-20) @ Marshall
- Chantilly won and covered 42-19, spoiling the Statesmen Homecoming.

3. Edison @ Robinson (-30)
- Robinson won 48-19, failing to cover by 1 point. The Rams were up 30-6 at halftime. Their defense is going to be a issue come Patriot District play. Also, I don't think the Eagles are as bad as we thought.

4. Falls Church @ Fairfax (-42)
- Fairfax rolled, 67-0.

5. Hayfield @ West Springfield (-17)
- West Springfield won and covered, 46-9. On the opening kickoff, Hayfield's return man caught it and attempted to hand it off to another guy who couldn't handle it and WS got a safety. They then returned the ensuing free kick for a TD. It was 32-0 Spartans after the 1st.

6.Langley @ Madison (-10)
- Madison won and covered, 28-3. Score was 21-3 Warhawks at the half and they seemed content with playing conservative and going home with a win.

7. Lee @ Woodson (-21)
- Woodson won and covered, 49-14. Kudos to Lee for scoring twice. Gotta feel bad for those kids. I counted 21 people in the Lee bleachers...

8.South County (-42) @ Stuart
- South County rolled JEB, 61-6.

9. South Lakes (-28) @ McLean
- SL did indeed win big, 51-14.

10. Stone Bridge (-35) @ Riverside
- Game was on Thursday. SB won 59-7. I noticed that Zeke Wimbush is playing QB for the Bulldogs, I guess their QB is still hurt. Anyone have any details? Reminds of when Hayfield lost their QB years ago and brought in Brian Cobbs to play QB, he did a great job, Wimbush is as well.

11. T.C. Williams (-21) @ Herndon
- Herndon upset the Titans, 21-8. Who can honestly say they saw that one coming?

12. Washington-Lee (-21) @ Wakefield
- WL blanked Wakefield, 39-0.

13. West Potomac (-7) @ Mount Vernon
- Nailed this one! West Potomac won, 35-28.

14. Westfield (-7) @ Yorktown
- Great game. Westfield won 20-17 in OT. 100% deserving of Game of the Week.

Talked with a good friend of mine, Matt Hatfield from VA Preps and we both agree that Freedom is the favorite to win the Class 6 Title. Just too much talent, really enjoyed our talk. Another weak slate this week as quite a few teams are on a bye week. Anyway, let's get into it...


1. Broad Run @ Stone Bridge (-20)
- Co-Game of the week. Usually a very close played rivalry game but Broad Run is not up to par. SB should be just fine.

2. Cardozo (DC) @ Annandale (-7)
- I believe this is the Atoms’ Homecoming game and I looked at Cardozo’s results and they are essentially on the same level as Lee. Look for Annandale to win at home.

3. Chantilly (-8) @ T.C. Williams
- Intriguing game. Will the Titans get back right and make up for last week? Or will the Chargers beat up on their last out of district opponent?

4. Fairfax (-35) @ Edison
- I will say what I said last week, I wish the Rebels scheduled tougher out of district competition.

5. Herndon (-3) @ Wakefield
- Never thought I’d pick Herndon but here we are folks. Wakefield just sucks, and while I thought Herndon sucked, they are 2-2 and are showing me something! Hornets win a close one.

6. Lake Braddock (-24) @ South Lakes
- Game of the week due to a weak slate. Personally, I think SL will cover but I have to respect what the Bruins have done thus far.

7. Marshall @ Madison (-17)
- The Warhawks may finally be getting on track, right on time for district play.

8. McLean @ Yorktown (-40)
- Running clock in the 2nd half… next.

9. Mount Vernon @ South County (-24)
- I think the Majors will score a few times before the Stallions pull away and win big.

10. Woodson @ Centreville (-35)
- Was debating making the spread higher, Wildcats will roll in this one. I hope WTW enjoyed their few wins.

11. West Potomac (-49) @ Lee
- Poor Lancers… Will they show any fight on Homecoming?

12. West Springfield (-30) @ Oakton
- I have been very impressed with the Spartans. They have a great QB and other talent to surround him. I can see them upsetting a SoCo/LB/FFX. Just saying folks!

I always assumed that high school football teams are supposed to play exactly 5 home and 5 away games in the regular season, but it seems that Robinson is playing 6 home games, and only 4 away this year (they played Edison at home two seasons in a row).

Is that normal? It seems like this shouldn't be allowed...

Also, Stone Bridge played 6 home games last year and this year they are playing 6 road games. That’s how it should go, Yorktown must beg for 6 home games a year. Faggots.

Here's my weekly review of how I did picking against your spreads. Thank you again for posting these week in and week out. Also, I think you deserve a shout out on this week's set of spreads. I think many of the games were inherently hard to handicap. Yet, your spreads hit the mark, or pretty close to it in many cases. Well-done!

As per my policy, no pick where the spread is >35 points. Having said that, this spread was obviously not high enough, but I frankly don't know how you can go much higher on a spread.

Correctly picked Chantilly to both win and cover. This spread is an example of what I was talking about above.

Correctly picked Robo to win. That was the easy part. However, I took them to cover, and I missed that by one point. When I first saw this, I wondered why you didn't assign >35 to this, but you obviously had a hunch that Edison could hang better with Robo, and the result shows it. Edison is not a powerhouse by any means, but they do seem to be punching above their weight this season. Maybe they'll get a breakthrough win later this season?

I correctly took West Springfield to win, but it seems that I either underestimated West Springfield (likely due to their close win last week aginst W-L) overestimated Hayfield, which lead me to think that West Springfield wouldn't cover, which I got wrong. When you think you have the pecking order figured out, there comes a surprising result, though this one wasn't the most surprising this week.

Correctly picked Woodson to both win and to cover. I do feel bad for Lee, but I think Edison has similar issues as Lee, but they seem to be doing more with their "less" than Lee does. As four Woodson, congratulations on capping off your winning streak. The question for Woodson is whether they are prepared for their impending losing streak. FWIW, I was predicting it would be six games, but I'm waivering a bit on that. It might be only five.

To answer your question, ABSOLUTELY NO ONE can HONESTLY say they saw this coming. If they said they did, they're lying. I took TCW to win and cover, so obviously I got both ends of this pick wrong. This is the kind of game that will have ripple effects beyond just this week. Herndon has been quietly building to this, and I think they'll avoid the cellar of Liberty. TCW may not be as good as we thought, and I think we may need to put them on upset alert for their season-ending game against Woodson (which will allow Woodson to limit their losing streak to five).

Correctly picked Westfield to win, but I also thought they would cover, so I got that part of the pick wrong. Yorktown led at half in this game, and they have to feel bad about losing, though congratulations to Westfield for the comeback. Definitely game of the week, along with West Po and Mount Vernon.

Stone Bridge wins and covers.

I'll take Annandale to win and to cover. After Annandale beat Lee, and covered, I said that would be Annandale's only win of the season, but I said that without looking hard at their schedule. I hope I'm proven wrong about that earlier statement. Go Atoms!

My sense is that TCW losing to Herndon is going to be more demoralizing for TCW than motivating. Plus, Chantilly is good. Chantilly wins and covers.

Fairfax wins and covers. I echo the comment about better OOD competition for Fairfax, but I'll re-iterate that this game was scheduled more than two years ago, when the program at Fairfax was in a very different, and much worse, position. This game, along with their others, probably was scheduled just to get some wins. Having said all that, I think Edison is better than we would have thought at the beginning of the season. Fairfax will still win and cover, but they won't hang 67 points on Edison the way they did against Falls Church.

We all thought Herndon sucked, but they have proved all of us wrong. Herndon deserves to be the favorite here. Herndon wins and covers.

The easy part of this pick is that Lake Braddock will win. But I don't think they are 24 points better than South Lakes, so I'm taking them NOT to cover.
>

I think so as well about Madison. Madison wins and covers. I think the margin will be similar to Madison v. Langley.

On consecutive weeks, Mount Vernon (a) gets destroyed by Centreville, and (b) plays West Potomac close. They are hard for me to figure out. I'll take South County to win and cover, but I won't be surprised if South County doesn't cover a 24 point spread.

You kept the spread at 35 so that I would make a pick. Admit it! :) I'll oblige. I think Centreville is probably the best team in 6A Region C and D combined, and we saw that with their destruction of Wakefield. Woodson, for their part now puts their 3-1 record to the real test. No more Lee/Wakefield/Falls Church creampuffs. Now it's time for the potentially season-ending losing streak to begin. Centreville wins and covers. Easily.

This one is really tough. The easy part -- West Springfield wins. But are they really 30 points better than Oakton? I don't want to have to give 30 points, but West Springfield blew out Hayfield last week, and Hayfield is much better than Oakton. So I'll take West Springfield to cover. I really wish the line was lower, though. As for whom should West Springfield upset? Can I get Lake Braddock, please?

This is an interesting situation. Teams split the gate, and the beltway schools really struggle to balance their budgets. Might we start seeing payday games, similar to what happens in college?

Yorktowns 6 home game regular seasons all happened because they were playing DC schools. Those schools almost always travel back to back years. Last years 6th home game was a playoff game.

VHSL has a complex points system based on strength of schedule to figure all that out.

VHSL Power points isn't hard to figure out. If your team beats a team they get a lot of points if they lose, they get half that amount. If the teams you beat also win a lot, your team gets bonus points. So, the better your opponents are, more points your team accumulates through the season.

It's entirely possible to have identical records for 3 teams & each have different power points.

Game Points
Teams receive game points regardless if they win or lose, but earn significantly more points for winning. For example, a team will earn 26 points for beating a Class 6 team, but will only receive 14 points for losing to a Class 6 team.

Class/Winning Against/Losing Against
Class 6/26/14
Class 5/24/12
Class 4/22/10
Class 3/20/8
Class 2/18/6
Class 1/16/4

Bonus/Rider Points
Bonus points (also known as rider points) are what separate great teams from good teams. For each opponent a team beats—they’ll receive 2 bonus points for each win that opponent has during the season. For opponents a team loses to—they’ll receive only 1 bonus point for each win that opponent has during the season.

For example, if Team A beats Team B who goes 0-10 during the season, Team A will receive no bonus points at all because Team B doesn’t have any wins (0 wins x 2 points) and Team B will receive 10 points (10 wins x 1 point). And if Team A beats Team C who is 9-1, Team A will receive 18 bonus points (9 wins x 2 points) and Team C will receive 10 points (10 wins x 1 point).

Classification Points
The addition of classification points makes it possible for higher class teams to play lower class team's without creating a disadvantage. Historical districts are still used as a core in scheduling, which creates some districts with different class teams. If a higher class team play's a lower class team, they will automatically receive 2 points for each class jump to make up for the difference in base points. These points are now given whether a team is in your district or not.

Every week you question why the likes of Fairfax, LB, Robo, & other Patriot District teams schedule such weak out of district games, well I can shed light on some of it…

In the first couple years of the new region (Patriot & National districts), the Patriot District DSA’s didn’t like seeing National District teams (who may have played weak schedules) end up in the regional playoffs, so starting with last year’s scheduling, it was agreed that the Patriot district teams would randomly draw and schedule at least 2 National district teams…

FWIW the Patriot district’s scheduling play seems to have paid off, I think over last season and this, the Patriot district has not lost a game vs National district (someone might want to check this stat) and last year the National district only sent 1 team to the regional playoffs, so kudos to the Patriot district DSA’s on figuring out a way to rake in more of that playoff money

And while I’m here, I think Fairfax had this game locked away by the end of the 1st Q last year and I expect the same this year, Fairfax wins big (just probably not as big as this past week, sheesh Falls Church has fallen way off under the new coaches)

And thanks for doing this, love checking the spreads every week.
