2004 JOE PINKOS' FORECAST: Week 3

Joe is back! The "Guru" of picking high school football games with no rival in the state of Florida has survived a pair of hurricanes to chose the games for Week No. 3. If you have never followed him in the past, just sit back and watch how accurate he is! Welcome back Joe!

Forecast for Week 3

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.
