2014 Quick Hitters (Week 9 NFL Picks) @


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.

2014 Quick Hitters (Week 6 NFL Picks)

We’ve almost completed a third of the season and we came away with another winning 11-4 record, let’s get on to the Week 6 NFL Picks. I did not like this previous week one bit because the average number of correct picks in pick ‘em pools was 11 which means that it was a favorite week almost all the way. Don’t get me started on the Detroit Lions who still self-impose losses on themselves and ruin my “Lock of the Week.” There’s no way the public gets to 11 wins this week as there’s all kinds of juicy value plays and intriguing home underdogs. The disappointing New Orleans Saints and emerging Kansas City Chiefs are on a bye.

2014 Quick Hitters (Week 5 NFL Picks)


Hit on both of my upset picks for a respectable 9-4 mark last week, so let’s get started on the Week 5 NFL picks! Thank you to the New York Giants (blew up Washington on Thursday) and Kansas City Chiefs (dominated New England on Monday) for being the teams who I thought you were. Glad to see the Miami Dolphins and Oakland Raiders go on bye because both are highly inconsistent teams. Both the Dolphins and Raiders are probably a little better than public perception would say, so keep your eye on these teams going forward.

2014 Quick Hitters (Week 4 NFL Picks)

Fresh off a season-best 12-4 mark, it’s time for Week 4 NFL Picks. Can we continue what’s been a solid season so far? Last week could have been even better if I didn’t switch off the San Diego Chargers right before I published my picks. It was fun to see them buck the trend of west coast teams traveling east for an early game. Bye weeks are here and we’re without three of the best teams in the league in the Cincinnati Bengals, Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks who collectively have accounted for a lot of successful picks. I’m glad to not see the Arizona Cardinals, Cleveland Browns or St. Louis Rams this week.

2014 Quick Hitters (Week 3 NFL Picks)

Time for Week 3 NFL Picks has arrived after another solid 10-6 week when all kinds of crazy happened around the league. Sorry about the fail on last week’s “Lock of the Week,” as it’s never easy to win when the Bucs lost their best defensive player in Gerald McCoy. Tampa Bay still almost beat the Rams with absolutely no pass-rush at all. New Orleans and Seattle also dropped precarious games on the road, but that just goes to show you how dangerous home underdogs are. On to this week’s picks!
