2004 JOE PINKOS' FORECAST: Week 5

While a number of hurricanes have made it tough for all teams to play a full schedule, Joe Pinkos has found a way to keep moving forward with his picks. As usual, nobody gets it right like he does when it comes to forecasting high school football games in the state of Florida!

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.
