27inarow.com: 2014 Quick Hitters (Week 13 NFL Picks)


The tricky Oakland Raiders kept me from the ultimate and almost impossible perfect sheet this past weekend. I’ll definitely take the 14-1 record in to my Week 13 NFL Picks. Fading the NFC South worked magic for me as all three teams blew winnable games, culminating with the Saints letting a lot of pickers down on Monday Night. We’re seeing history with that division and thank you to the AFC North for backing me and winning all three of your games. I’m not sure I can improve this week, but we do have all 32 teams playing with a season-high three Thursday games. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving everyone!

27inarow: 2014 Quick Hitters (Week 12 NFL Picks)


A highly successful week ten was followed by a mediocre week eleven. What will be in store as we transition to the Week 12 NFL Picks? In my defense, I believe it’s the first time this season that I posted a losing record (2-3) in my moderate confidence picks. Moreover, we saw five underdogs win straight up and I’m thinking this week might be fairly similar for some reason (which would be bad for my favorite picks). Only two teams are on bye this week; the stumbling Carolina Panthers and hard-to-read Pittsburgh Steelers. It’s the last week for byes, so get ready for the home-stretch in your pick’em leagues.

2014 Quick Hitters (Week 11 NFL Picks) @ 27inarow.com

 

We’re back on track after a successful 10-3 record and revving up for Week 11 NFL Picks. Last week couldn’t have went much better as almost everyone also lost on the Cincinnati Bengals, Pittsburgh Steelers and New Orleans Saints. After having a couple of mediocre weeks, it felt nice to do some research and get back to winning. Week 11 ratchets the action back up with more games. We won’t see the run-heavy Dallas Cowboys, surprising New York Jets, lonely Jacksonville Jaguars or resourceful Baltimore Ravens as they all experience their bye this week.

2014 Quick Hitters (Week 10 NFL Picks) @ 27inarow.com

 

A truly depressing week 9 as I posted a season-low 6-7 record. I’m looking to hit on my “Lock of the Week” and shore up my toss-up picks in the Week 10 NFL Picks. The New England Patriots have done nothing, but prove me wrong (what a shocker from Bill Belichick …). I also think the pretenders are starting to separate themselves from the contenders. The hardest part about me picking these games so early is that I can’ t stay up to date on all of the injury statuses. That would have helped me tremendously on not picking the Cowboys, Texans or Ravens. No excuses though as we have the impressive Indianapolis Colts, tricky Minnesota Vikings, surging New England Patriots, stumbling San Diego Chargers, iffy Washington Redskins and offensively-challenged Houston Texans all on a bye.

2014 Quick Hitters (Week 9 NFL Picks) @ 27inarow.com

 

Sorry for the dreadful 8-7 record last week as we transition into the Week 9 NFL Picks. I want to let everyone know that I never feel good when I place below the average in a particular week and it has me left asking whether my pick average is regressing to the mean. Luckily, I keep track of everything and my 1-5 record in “Even” lines pretty much tells you that regression is not necessarily the case yet. Hopefully I can do a bit better on those “Even” games this week to swing my record back in the high percentile of NFL pick’em pools. Week nine sees the embarrassing Atlanta Falcons, trendy Buffalo Bills, imploding Chicago Bears, lucky Detroit Lions, wounded Green Bay Packers and mysterious Tennessee Titans on a bye.

2014 Quick Hitters (Week 8 NFL Picks)

 

Took a chance on four upsets last week and only nailed one of them, giving me a mediocre 9-6 record. We’re basically at the season’s half point and ready to rock the Week 8 NFL Picks. I think we are seeing a trend of notable favorites emerging (Denver, Dallas and Indy to name a few) and some middling teams (Seattle, Cleveland and Houston) giving our picks some trouble. On bye this week is the transitioning New York Giants and beat up San Francisco 49ers.

2014 Quick Hitters (Week 7 NFL Picks)

 

It’s about that time for Week 7 NFL Picks.Despite another winning 11-3-1 week, it was discouraging because the “Lock of the Week” didn’t hit and 11 wins was the average in most pick ‘em pools for the second week in a row. Field goal kickers are killing me on my most confident picks as both the Lions (week 5 versus Buffalo) and Bengals could have won their respective games without shanked kicks. Let’s move on and tackle a week with the surprising Philadelphia Eagles and sputtering Tampa Bay Bucs on a bye.
