Here are the predicted scores by Cal-Hi Sports for this weekend’s five CIF state football bowl games:
De La Salle (Concord) 37, St. John Bosco (Bellflower) 31. It’s really hard to pick against a team as dominant and talented as the Braves, but De La Salle has experience and knows how to win in the types of games where it seems outmatched. For Ronnie Flores’ scouting report after he saw both teams play earlier in the season, CLICK HERE.
Bakersfield 34, Del Oro (Loomis) 28. Driller fans head back home with a record seventh state title but the first in 86 years.
Chaminade (West Hills) 35, Enterprise (Redding) 14. The Eagles don’t have as big of an advantage as some might think up front, but their superior talent across the board will be too much for the Hornets.
Corona del Mar (Newport Beach) 38, Sacred Heart Prep (Atherton) 31. We went against Sacred Heart Prep last week and got burned big time. But based on facts we’re going to do it again.
Bakersfield Christian 28, Central Catholic (Modesto) 24. While we wouldn’t say the Eagles are the favorite like we’ve seen others say this week, we will go for an upset of sorts in this game. The Raiders might be a little banged up with injuries.
