Schon: Picks of the Week - 9/24/04

Ok, so I'm dishing it out again – playing against the spread. After a nice 11-5 first weekend, I split the field in Week 2, going 8-8, so we're standing at 19-13 heading into Sunday's games.

Here's the scoop -

Denver + 7 over the Patriots - W
Colts – 7 over Jacksonville - Tie
Miami - 11 over the Titans - L
Chicago -3 over the Vikings - Tie
Houston + 4 over Washington - L
Jets + 5 ½ over Buffalo - W
Bengals + 2 over the Steelers - W
Giants + 3 ½ over Seattle - L
Baltimore – 6 ½ over Cleveland - L
Bucs + 3 over the Panthers - W
Green Bay + 6 over Detroit - W
St. Louis + 4 ½ over Arizona - W
Philly – 6 over San Francisco - W
Atlanta – 3 ½ over New Orleans (Monday night) - L

Tossing out another one- I'm taking the over (33½) in the Cleveland - Baltimore matchup and rolling the under (42½) in Seattle. (Tanked on BOTH)

Not bad - 7-5 against the spread with two ties heading into Monday night. Dropped it hard on the over/under but still stayed above .500 for the weekend. Through the first three weeks of the season I'm pulling in at 26-17 (not incuding the o/u side bet).

Think you can pick ‘em any better – drop me a line, we'll go head to head in Week 4…
