Football: Long Beach Poly Enters Los Al Game As Underdog by CalPreps Projection

We don’t normally cite CalPreps game score predictions, but with so much interest in this week’s CIF-SS football quarterfinal playoff games, why not? 

Long Beach Poly actually moved back up over Los Al in this week’s CalPreps ratings, and is now once again No. 4 in the CIF-SS, with Mission Viejo No. 5 and Los Alamitos No. 6

Despite that fact, the Jackrabbits will enter this week’s Division 1 game with the Griffins as underdogs. CalPreps’ score projection is: 38-27 Los Al over Long Beach Poly.

Millikan certainly looked a cut better than their Division 4 competition last week and CalPreps expects the Rams to keep it rolling this week against undefeated Cypress. CalPreps’ score projection is: 38-35 Millikan over Cypress.Lakewood’s defense was outstanding in the Lancers’ first-round Division 8 playoffs and CalPreps thinks they will be again this week against Redondo Union. CalPreps’ score projection is: 26-17 Lakewood over Redondo Union.
