Portland taking care of business at Lansing Catholic was the biggest surprise from Week 5.  Holt blowing out Everett was a surprise to me as well.  But I almost got the Portland St. Pats-Tekonsha game perfectly--my pick was 45-22, the final was 46-22.

See last week's picks here.

Some teams need a win badly, so I think there will be some close games this week.

Here are the Week 5 picks:

Last Week: 16-7 (.696)

Season:  80-28 (.741)
