JOE PINKOS: POWER RATINGS – Forecast for Week 4

Once again, while other places are hoping to have the right formula when it comes to picking high school football games in the state, we have the ONLY formula. Joe Pinkos picked an amazing 78% once again last week. Have fun surfing the net....we have the real "GURU" right here!

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.

Last Week's Forecast Record: 177-50, 78.0%
