Only 52 teams remain as we head into the third week of the high school football playoffs. We have already had multiple major upsets and some classifications have been turned upside down. However, all seven defending champions remain.

Below are my predictions on how things will turn out after watching 13 weeks of the season for all classifications. The games will be listed like this:

Road team at Home team (Spread) – My pick straight up (not ATS)

The spreads I have listed come from a specific formula using the Freeman Ratings and aren’t my actual predictions, I will simply pick a winner. Many times the home team will be favored, but if the road team is favored, then the spread will be a + number.

Also, each classification is listed in order of how the bracket is laid out (so the first two games’ winners will play each other and so on).
