TVL Week 3 Football Picks

Article by: Steve Watson

(all games 7pm Fri unless noted)

Last week my TVL picks were better than my pro picks. Quite the opposite in Week 2. Although 5-3 isn’t awful, it’s not as good as 6-2. I managed to get Westwood’s score (34) exactly right, although I didn’t predict that they’d pitch a shutout. Good work, Westwood. Lots of great match-ups on tap in Week 3 as teams begin to look for some separation in the standings/rankings. Sit back & enjoy!!

The Tally…
Overall: 11-5
Last Week: 5-3
Westwood (1-1) VS Holliston (1-1)
Last year: Sep 30, Westwood 36-34 & Nov 24, Holliston 46-12

These historic Thanksgiving rivals meet in a crucial regular season matchup. Both enter the game with 1-1 records. Only one can leave with a 2-1 record and that team will be Westwood.

Prediction: Westwood 27-20
Dedham (1-1) VS Millis (1-1) (Sat 5pm)
Last year: Didn’t meet.

Both schools enter the contest at 1-1 & meet for the first time as TVL members. Look for Millis to take this matchup & move to 2-1

Prediction: Millis 32-14
Bellingham (2-0) VS Medway (0-2)
Last year: Bellingham, 8-7

Bellingham is looking to move to 3-0 while Medway is in search of their first win of 2017. This game will be higher scoring than last year’s, but the end result will be the same.

Prediction: Bellingham 21-13

Norton (1-1) VS Medfield (2-0) (Sat 1pm)
Last year: Medfield, 14-7

Medfield has looked impressive in their 2-0 start, posting 34 & 43 point tallies in the first two games. It’s been a mixed bag for Norton, who beat Medway & fell to Millis. Warriors take this one.

Prediction: Medfield 27-17

Ashland (1-1) VS Dover-Sherborn (1-1)
Last year: Ashland, 27-13

Both schools started strong with impressive Week 1 wins but fell flat in Week 2. A similar script so far for these teams. The Clockers take this one.

Prediction: Ashland 24-16
Hopkinton (2-0) @ Bishop Feehan (0-2)
Last year: Didn’t meet.

The Hillers look to build off their 2-0 start. Meanwhile, Bishop Feehan is 0-2 and has been outscored 57-6 in their first two games. Hopkinton takes this one with ease.

Prediction: Hopkinton 41-6
