Week 5 Massey Matchups Predictions

FAYETTEVILLE, GA -- Starr's Mill at Whitewater handily won Game of the Week with 65 percent of the vote, but will it turn out to be the closest contest? Massey Matchups lets us know.

 The Region 3-4A Division B matchup should have playoff implications for the undefeated Starr's Mill Panthers and the one-loss Wildcats. Both teams are undefeated in their region since Whitewater's lone loss came at the hands of defending 4A champ Sandy Creek, who is now in 3A.  

The two teams are expected to play to a 20-20 draw. But if the game were at Starr's Mill's place or on a neutral field, Massey Matchups gives Starr's Mill the edge.

With 33.7 percent of the Game of the Week vote, Buford at Lovett is definitely one to watch. Lovett won last year's matchup and it is not often the Buford Wolves have the chance to avenge a loss. However, the two teams are in different sub-regions so this season's game will not have the same impact as in years past.

Lovett is 2-1, having lost to Thomasville by two points. Buford's lone loss came to Carver-Columbus.

Massey Matchups predicts Buford will win 26-19.

Kell at Hiram is a battle of two 4-0 Region 5-4A North teams. Kell has beaten tough teams by close margins. Hiram has had an easier schedule, but has won by bigger margins. Massey Matchups gives Kell the 23-14 edge.

Not many teams leave Parkview High School with a win, but that is what South Gwinnett will be trying to do tonight. The Comets are 3-1, losing to Lowndes in their season opener, and with three consecutive 40-plus point efforts, South Gwinnett can certainly score points.

Points may not come easily against the Panthers, though. Parkview has only given up an average of 14 points per game.

Massey Matchups splits the difference, giving South Gwinnett the 30-23 win.
