JOE PINKOS: POWER RATINGS – Forecast for Week 2

After a very strange first week, where many games were pushed back or postponed, our very own "Guru of the Gridiron" is back and ready to pick some more winners on high school football fields across the state of Florida.

JOE PINKOS' POWER RATINGS – Forecast for Week 2

Game forecasts are sorted by classification of favored team, and listed alphabetically by favorite.

Each game forecast shows favored team, favorite's power rating in parentheses, underdog (preceded by classification if different from favorite's), power rating of underdog and forecasted margin of victory.

Joe Pinkos' Power Ratings are computed by a formula based on strength of opposition and margin of victory. To determine the forecasted margin of victory between any two teams, simply figure the difference in the respective power ratings.
