Week Three Results

Jets and the under. Yeah, that about sums the whole game-picking jawn through three weeks of an undefeated Broncos and nearly-undefeated Birds season.
As for the week in prognosticating that was, bloodbath.
6-8 on the line
4-10 on the O/U.
For a season tally of: 20-24-1 (spread), 15-30 (o/u) and 35-54-1.

Week Two results

Well, it's still not all that good, but it's much better than last week. On the spread, I posted a 6-8-1 and a winning 8-7 on the over unders. Bringing the year-to-date tallies to ...

Spread: 14-16-1
O/U: 11-20
Total: 25-36-1

Like I said, not so good. It's kind of like dropping a ball on the one-yard line when you should have a TD, y'know?

Week Two Picks

So, yeah, Week One was horrendous, what with the 8-8 tally on the spread and an unconscionable 3-13 on the over/unders (Got the spread best bet right and the O/U, obviously, wrong). I'd recommend picking against my picks on the O/Us actually. Here's the Week Two lines (as of 12 p.m. Thursday and the picks).

At Kansas City -3.5 Oakland UNDER 36
At Cincinnati -1 Tennessee OVER 37.5
Indianapolis -2 At Minnesota UNDER 43.5
At Washington PK New Orleans UNDER 42
Green Bay -3 At Detroit OVER 45.5
At Carolina -3 Chicago OVER 37.5
NY Giants -8.5 At St. Louis OVER 41.5
At Jacksonville -5.5 Buffalo OVER 37
At Tampa Bay -7 Atlanta OVER 38
At Seattle -7 San Francisco UNDER 38.5
At Arizona -6.5 Miami UNDER 39
At NY Jets -1.5 New England UNDER 37
At Houston -4.5 Baltimore UNDER 37.5
San Diego -1.5 At Denver OVER 46
Pittsburgh -6 At Cleveland UNDER 45

At Dallas -7 Philadelphia OVER 47

Best Bet:
New Orleans a pick'em over Washington
Jets/N.E. under 37

The results through Sunday night...

... can be summed up in one word: Atrocious.
Or in two: Very atrocious.
On the line, Hick's Picks were 7-7 and on the over/under, and a whoppingly bad 3-11, for a Week One, pre-MNF tally of 10-18. Perhaps tonight's games will bring it to a reasonable 14-18, but don't hold your amusement-only breath on it.

The deeper results through Sunday night...

Winners in bold. Losers aren't.

**At NY Giants -4.5 Washington OVER 41
**Cincinnati -1.5 At Baltimore UNDER 38
NY Jets -3 At **Miami OVER 36
**At New England -15.5 Kansas City OVER 44
**At Pittsburgh -6.5 Houston UNDER 43
