(1-3) Shawnee at Van Wert (2-2)
(3-1) Kenton at St. Marys (4-0)
(3-1) Wapak at Elida (2-2)
(2-2) Defiance at Bath (0-4)
(3-1) Celina at O-G (2-2)

Last week was a tough week, no one got them all right, and a mere three people went 4-1. There were 6 losing records at 2-3, leaving 5 others that went a modest 3-2. No one forgot to get their picks in. After nine WBL teams were picked in week 1 to win, it finally took until week 4 for someone to pick Defiance, and it was actually a favorite this week, but of course choked big time. There were 3 unanimous picks - not surprisingly, St. Marys over Shawnee and Celina over Bath, and maybe a little surprisingly, O-G over Van Wert. Celina crushing Bath was the only non-close game last week, so it was an entertaining week for once. The consensus went 2-3, obvious by all the 2-3 records this week. Not too often do you see a unanimous pick lose. As for the standings, Stallionaires took advantage of one of the few 4-1 records this week to move into first place alone for the first time this year.
SM over Shawnee 14-0 (win)
O-G over VW 14-0 (loss)
Celina over Bath 14-0 (win)
Wapak over Kenton 9-5 (loss)
Defiance over Elida 8-6 (loss)

Van Wert: May be a close game but Cougs have a strong running game and i think that could be the difference
St. Marys- Another close game, but taking the riders at home
Wapak- Elida can score but can't stop anyone, WAPAK can score and plays some D
Defiance- It will be an electric atmosphere Friday night at Bath
O-G- I am a homer, but this is it, if OG can't beat the green dogs at home on homecoming I may be forced to re-think my picks from here on out

(1-3) Shawnee at Van Wert (2-2) Cougars win a close one at home


(3-1) Kenton at St. Marys (4-0) Kenton really improving, but Riders too much. (I will not be surprised if Kenton wins this one).


(3-1) Wapak at Elida (2-2) Skins play solid defense, will slow down the Elida offense.


(2-2) Defiance at Bath (0-4) Bulldogs will win but Bath will hang around for a while.


(3-1) Celina at O-G (2-2) Bulldogs very solid, are the Titans finally running out of studs?

Shawnee over Van Wert - The Indians are due to win a close one.
Kenton over St. Marys - Watch out for Kenton!
Wapakoneta at Elida - I can't imagine this will be close.
Defiance over Bath - The Bulldogs take out some frustration on the Wildcats.
Celina over Ottawa-Glandorf - I have no feel for this game. No option - blowout or close win by either team - would surprise me. But I just don't trust the Titans right now.

Tough week to pick. I could see all games except maybe one being close.
Shawnee over Van Wert - Van Wert has had one of the toughest opening schedules in this part of the state, but Shawnee has fared slightly better against the same teams.
Kenton over St. Marys - Kenton has been gaining momentum and could basically clinch the league title already in week 5.
Wapak over Elida - Redskins rebound from their first loss of the season.
Defiance over Bath - I probably haven't picked Defiance since two or more years ago.
Celina over Bath - Celina has beaten mostly bad competition so far, but I can't get a good read on O-G.
