Below, you'll find this week's predictions.
Also, check out the "Bold or just bald?" prediction show for Burns' wild prediction for this week's Chicken Ranch Casino Game of the Week between Trans-Valley League foes Hilmar and host Escalon. Spoiler alert: He summoned his spirit animal — ESPN College Gameday's Lee Corso. There's also bonus footage, so stay with the video.
