Case Keefer attempt to pick

Keefer's Picks
Last Week:
17-1

Season:
75-21 (.781)

Liberty is the class of the Southeast Division.
Liberty 35, Basic 14

Me picking against Basic? Sounds uncharacteristic.
Liberty 33, Basic 24

Let’s go with an upset special. I’ll take Coronado against underachieving Silverado.
Coronado 22, Silverado 20

Not stunned by Brewer's pick, but I'll play it safe and go with the slight favorites.
Silverado 28, Coronado 21

Del Sol's deficiencies on the line are making the Dragons a middle-of-the-pack team.
Foothill 23, Del Sol 18

Dragons could get back on track here, but they catch a bad break running into the Falcons after a bye week.
Foothill 34, Del Sol 28

Valley is better than you think, but I've told everyone that DP will be a threat come November.
Desert Pines 34, Valley 22

Vikings are tough, young and talented — three characteristics I like to lead them to a big-time upset.
Valley 22, Desert Pines 21

Eldorado breaks its losing streak.
Eldorado 38, Sunrise Mountain 12

Long season for the Miners continues.
Eldorado 54, Sunrise Mountain 6

Hey, Las Vegas: Go easy on my Cowboys.
Las Vegas 58, Chaparral 7

Only way to make this game interesting would be to spot Chaparral a six-touchdown head start.
Las Vegas 49, Chaparral 6

Canyon Springs prevails in a close game.
Canyon Springs 32, Rancho 29

Close game? Not seeing it.
Canyon Springs 34, Rancho 19

Cheyenne showed last week against Palo Verde that it can’t stop the double wing attack.
Arbor View 37, Cheyenne 15

Planned on picking an upset here, but Cheyenne's performance last week scared me away.
Arbor View 32, Cheyenne 21

This will be a rare Northwest Division victory for Mojave.
Mojave 19, Faith Lutheran 16

Crusaders quarterback Gino De George is starting to find his rhythm.
Faith Lutheran 28, Mojave 20

Palo Verde makes quick work of Shadow Ridge heading into bye week.
Palo Verde 56, Shadow Ridge 0

Palo Verde beat a good Shadow Ridge team by 38 last season, so there's no telling how ugly this one could get.
Palo Verde 55, Shadow Ridge 6

Gorman has a hangover from Servite game, starting slow before an offensive explosion.
Bishop Gorman 49, Pahrump Valley 0

Bishop Gorman's players could simulate a real hangover by wearing those drunk goggles that make everything blurry and still win by triple digits if they wanted.
Bishop Gorman 63, Pahrump Valley 0

Bonanza won't be challenged this week.
Bonanza 32, Clark 7

Stricken with Bengal-fever over here.
Bonanza 28, Clark 13

Desert Oasis secures the No. 2 seed in the Southwest for a second straight season.
Desert Oasis 32, Durango 19

If there's one victory Durango wants this season, it's this one. Trailblazers won't get it, though.
Desert Oasis 31, Durango 21

Spring Valley wins a nip-and-tuck affair.
Spring Valley 23, Sierra Vista 20

With the exception of Bishop Gorman, all of Sierra Vista's games have been extremely close. But the Mountain Lions usually come out on the wrong end.
Spring Valley 27, Sierra Vista 26

Green Valley’s winning streak reaches five games. But it won’t be easy.
Green Valley 30, Virgin Valley 29

That close? Are we analyzing the same game? Green Valley will win by at least two scores.
Green Valley 45, Virgin Valley 20

Boulder City grabs a tough road victory.
Boulder City 20, Western 17

Eagles soar over the Warriors.
Boulder City 26, Western 13

I would have taken Legacy two weeks ago, but Moapa Valley has looked great against 4A classification teams.
Moapa Valley 40, Legacy 29

In a game of the week candidate, Moapa Valley finds a way to win in a shootout.
Moapa Valley 36, Legacy 33

Centennial shouldn't lose the rest of the season.
Centennial 32, Cimarron 20

Hey Cimarron: Dust off that seat on your bandwagon, I want to get back on.
Cimarron 27, Centennial 21
