: : : : : : : : : what are your predictions on who is going to get first place in each division?

: : : : : : : : These lines are posted at Caesars Palace in Vegas

: : : : : : : : Open
: : : : : : : : Poly -12 vs HW

: : : : : : : : 1AA
: : : : : : : : Valencia -3.5 vs Canyon

: : : : : : : : 1A
: : : : : : : : Bishop Montgomery -3 vs Huntington Beach

: : : : : : : : 2AA
: : : : : : : : Camarillo PK vs Rosary

: : : : : : : : 2A
: : : : : : : : Marlborough -3 vs Leuzinger

: : : : : : : : 3AA
: : : : : : : : Glendora -3.5 vs Thousand Oaks

: : : : : : : : 3A
: : : : : : : : Los Osos -14 vs Lancaster

: : : : : : : : 4AA
: : : : : : : : Knight-6 vs Beverly Hills

: : : : : : : : 4A
: : : : : : : : Village Christian -3 vs Valley Christian

: : : : : : : : 5AA
: : : : : : : : Heritage Christian -9 vs Crean Lutheran

: : : : : : : : 5A
: : : : : : : : Bell Jeff -5 vs Chadwick

: : : : : : : : 6
: : : : : : : : Rolling Hills Prep -6.5 vs Grace Brethren

: : : : : : : : Was there a line or over-under on any of the games?

: : : : : : If only one could actually bet on these games. that would be remarkable!

: : : : : With the lines given I would

: : : : : Open: Take Harvard Westlake and the points, they may not win, but it will be closer than that

: : : : : 1AA: Canyon and the points

: : : : : 1A: Bishop Montgomery to cover

: : : : : 2AA: Rosary

: : : : : 2A: Leuzinger and the points

: : : : : 3AA: Glendora will cover

: : : : : 3A: Lancaster and the points

: : : : : 4AA: Village Christian will cover

: : : : : 4A: Beverly Hills and the points

: : : : : 5AA: Heritage Christian will win, but I'd take the points and Crean Lutheran

: : : : : 5A: maybe my toughest decision as I am picking Bell-Jeff to win but think it will be right around 5 points. Bell-Jeff to cover.

: : : : : 6: Rolling Hills Prep will cover

: : : : I like both coaches of the Double Digit Dogs so I will take those 2 (HW +12 and Lancaster +14)... I think Glendora takes care of business as well.

: : : If Village Christian and Los Osos were both to win, I wonder who gets the higher seed in state? Village is higher seeded by MaxPreps, seems to have more high quality wins, and beat common opponents like Viewpoint by more, but Los Osos is 3A. Of course, they both need to win to worry about it and that is never a sure thing.

: : CIF has it pre slotted...
: : 3A -Champ = #1
: : 3A- 2nd Pl. = #2
: : 4AA-Champ #3
: : 4AA-2nd Pl = #4
: : 4A-Champ = #5
: : 4A- 2nd Pl = #6
: : Usually wil cards #7/#8
: : Other sections #9-#16

: : I believe in this division SS went 8-0 last year in round 1.
: : So even if you think LO and VC are best 2 teams they would be ranked 1 and 3 and not meet until SS Finals...I personally think both wild card teams are better than the 4A finalists so 4AA is actually given a break as compared to 3A.

: This is not the state finals bracket from last year where Antelope Valley and St. Anthony were representing the Southern Section in State Division 4. I would hope they do not slot the seeds as they did last year because I highly doubt the Southern Section will be rolling through the lower State Divisions like they did back then. Perhaps they may have the Regional winners but last year the Southern Section went 39-1 in the 1st round of the state tournament. This year the section will lose more games in the first round than that in Division 4 alone.

: And yes you are correct the two Wild Card teams should be seeded higher than the 4A finalist, but that may require time and work which some people are not real excited about.

too bad that they pre slot instead of actually rank the teams. Seems odd. Especially in a year like this when the divisions are so helter shelter.
