Week 9 Predictions

Well, it’s that time of the week again to see how well I can pick this week’s games, and even though we haven’t been tracking as closely, we will once again give it a go. Inspired by D. Orlando Ledbetter’s picks in the AJC nearly two decades ago as a 12-year-old, this is my best effort to recreate something that has been missing in the state, and that is completely gut-based picks for each game in the state of Georgia.

Each winner is underlined. That’s it. See who I picked and enjoy knowing who is going to win going into tonight’s games.
