Vic vs. Odom: High school football picks for Week 3

Milan’s Lincoln Reel (40) makes a tackle against Manassas during a Week 2 high school football game at Johnnie Hale Stadium on Aug. 26, 2022.

Six wins by the six Gibson County area teams on Friday night was big for the county. Now we get back to those inner-county rivalries in Week 3.

After Week 2, Michael Odom now has a four-game lead by picking Humboldt over Bruceton and Lake County over Obion County. He went 13-2, while Parkins went 11-4.

Overall, Odom is now 25-5 (.833 winning percentage), while Parkins is 21-9 (.700).

ROUNDUP: Week 2 Football – Peabody beats defending 2A state champion

So here is what is happening in Week 3 in Gibson County and across West Tennessee:

Milan (2-0) at South Gibson (2-0)

This is a rivalry game that could go either way. Both teams blew out Memphis teams in Week 2 and are unbeaten on the season. Milan will have the speed advantage, but South Gibson will be a little more physical.

Odom’s Pick: South Gibson 28, Milan 27

Lake County (1-1) at Peabody (1-1)
