85-19 (.817)

Steve Silver attempt to pick
the winning team from prep contests
across the Las Vegas area.

Silver's Picks
Last Week:

80-24 (.769)

Basic will win the Henderson Bowl because it is more physical than Green Valley - talk about a role reversal.
Basic 27, Green Valley 9

I think this could be one of the best Henderson Bowls in history. Wolves pull it out on the road.
Basic 20, Green Valley 17

Silverado still has a chip on its shoulder from last year.
Silverado 30, Liberty 21

Forget last year, what about last week? Silverado better recover quickly or Liberty will pick up the 'W.'
Silverado 24, Liberty 19

Foothill is still alive for playoff spot in Southeast.
Foothill 32, Coronado 29

Upset special. Coronado stuns a floundering Foothill squad.
Coronado 28, Foothill 21

Valley's Wharton will be the best player on the field.
Valley 19, Rancho 17

Not a lot of positives for either team, but Valley has decent speed.
Valley 14, Rancho 6

Las Vegas shows it is still the top team in the Northeast.
Las Vegas 33, Canyon Springs 28

Canyon Springs is one tough team with Hunkie Cooper at the helm. This one could go either way.
Las Vegas 42, Canyon Springs 35

A win in the Cleat Game would make the season a success for both struggling teams.
Chaparral 22, Eldorado 16

Just to be different I'll go with Eldorado, but this one is not going to be pretty.
Eldorado 14, Chaparral 7

Durango caps its homecoming week with a win against the Mountain Lions.
Durango 29, Sierra Vista 6

No question here. Durango rolls.
Durango 34, Sierra Vista 13

It's a shame the Gorman-Western rivalry has died.
Gorman 52, Western 0

No Brewer, it's a shame they are even bothering to play this game.
Gorman 66, Western 6

Desert Oasis continues to shine in its first year of league play.
Desert Oasis 38, Pahrump 12

How about Desert Oasis making a push for a playoff spot? I love it.
Desert Oasis 27, Pahrump 14

Spring Valley is still fighting for a playoff spot.
Spring Valley 23, Bonanza 21

First a brawl then a 72-0 beat down by Gorman -- Can Bonanza salvage its season this week? Highly doubtful.
Spring Valley 34, Bonanza 20

Cimarron could rest Nixon and Poole and still win by four touchdowns.
Cimarron 52, Mojave 0

Cimarron turns this into a one-team track meet.
Cimarron 42, Mojave 7

Faith Lutheran finally gets first win in the 4A.
Faith Lutheran 13, Shadow Ridge 12

Coin flip in my mind and since I'm scared of crusades, I'll go with the Mustangs.
Shadow Ridge 20, Faith Lutheran 13

Legacy has hangover from big win last week, but rallies to remain undefeated.
Legacy 29, Cheyenne 27

Ah, the old USC post big victory hangover syndrome. Not this week.
Legacy 14, Cheyenne 13

Palo Verde gets back on track with lopsided win.
Palo Verde 41, Arbor View 0

It's no fun playing an angry Palo Verde squad.
Palo Verde 28, Arbor View 7

Del Sol remains undefeated with non-league win.
Del Sol 32, Centennial 12

Despite a small roster, Del Sol continues to impress.
Del Sol 28, Centennial 13

Boulder City shows defending state champion Moapa Valley that there is a new king of the 3A.
Boulder City 16, Moapa Valley 14

In sticking with tradition I will choose Boulder City, which of course means Moapa Valley will win.
Boulder City 21, Moapa Valley 20
