Playoff Point Spreads

St. Ignatius is favored by 9 1/2 points Saturday night because the oddsmakers believe the Wildcats will devise a plan to slow down Mentor’s amazing quarterback Mitch Trubisky and his unstoppable passing attack.

Look at what Mentor did to St. Ed’s last week in its incredible 63-56 come from behind win. At least for one night Tribursky was the best high schoiol quarterback I have ever seen in half a century. He completed 36 of 48 passes for 478 yards and four touchdowns. Big and strong, Tribursky also ran 25 times for 98 yards. Mentor piled up 39 first downs and rolled up 726 yards and ran a staggering 92 offensive plays from scrimmage. That does not count conversions, kickoffs and punts. Of course, Mentor punted only once and St. Ed’s only twice. By the fourth quarter when Mentor outscored St. Ed’s 21-0, the Eagles’ defense was gassed. Imagine chasing the Cardinals all over the field for 92 plays. St. Ed’s, meanwhile, ran 68 offensive plays.

Anyway, here are the lines for this weekend’s third round playoff games.
