Here are my picks against these spreads.

I'll take West Po to win and cover. Just a hunch though, as I don't know much about Colonial Forge

Chantilly wins and covers this one, easily. This spread should be much higher.
> 3. Edison (-8) @ McLean
> - Lower tier game, I like the Eagles in this one.
This game features a bottom-feeding National Team visiting a bottom-feeding Liberty team. Both of these conferences are the weaker of the two conferences in their respective regions, but I feel Liberty is a bit better than National. On that basis, combined with McLean being at home, means I'll take McLean to win outright.

Hayfield wins a covers.

If this spread would have been one point more, I'd pass on making a pick. 35 is the max. I'll take South Lakes to win and cover.

As bad as Annandale is this year, Lee is a whole league worse. I think Annandale wins, covers, and gets their only win of the season.

I agree with you that Madison is going to be mad. I'd also say that Yorktown may not be as good as people think -- after all, they lost to Langley. Madison wins and covers.
> 8. Mount Vernon @ Centreville (-28)

Centreville wins and covers.

I need some Pepto Bismol. I'll take Lake Braddock to win and cover.

If Langley had shown up better against Fairfax (and as I thought they would), I'd agree, but that 38-7 loss to Fairfax is taking me off of any Langley bandwagon I would have been on. I'm taking Oakton to win outright.

Stone Bridge wins and covers

This is a greater than 35 point spread. No pick from me.

A blind squirrel occasionally will find an acorn, and a sorry football team will occasionally find a win. Woodson wins and covers.

Your older brother's Westfield team would have taken Marshall to a running clock by the 3rd quarter. But this isn't your older brother's Westfield team. Westfield wins, doesn't cover.
