Early line on state finals = 3 state championships

In the NFL immediately after the conference championship games are played, the folks in Vegas like to give early betting lines on the Super Bowl.
With the state semifinals completed on Saturday for high school football in the state of Michigan, Kosmo will give his own betting line, without the betting/gambling part of it of course.
In his Krystal ball, Kosmo sees three teams that will win state championships next Saturday at Ford Field.
The first game involving an Oakland County team is at 1 p.m. on Friday when Farmington Hills Harrison takes on Lowell. In Kosmo's eyes, this is a 10-point win for Harrison.
Yes, Lowell is the defending state champion and has gone 121-16 in its last 135 games, but Harrison will be the best team the Red Arrows have faced in their decade-long run of excellence. Harrison has both brawn up front and more speed than Lowell, so the Hawks are the choice.
The next day, Lake Orion will face Plymouth in the Division 1 state final at 1 p.m. Not many people predicted this would be the final that would take place, but it's reality.
While Plymouth has beaten three incredible teams in Canton, Catholic Central and Rockford, Lake Orion will be plenty determined to avenge a loss in the 2008 final.
Add running back Marques Stevenson and a speedy defense to the mix, and the Dragons are a touchdown better in Kosmo's eyes.
Finally, Orchard Lake St. Mary's for the third time in four years will meet East Grand Rapids in the Division 3 final on Saturday night.
The Eaglets lost two heartbreakers to the Pioneers in the 2007 and 2009 finals, and quite simply East Grand Rapids is vulnerable and due to lose one of these games.
St. Mary's has just as much talent and this time will get things to go their way by four points.
