That's what my formula is spitting out, let's see which one ends up closer on average next week.

Results so far, the numbers in bold are the actual scores, the unbolded ones were my predictions.

Steelers 30/27, Bengals 26/13
Browns 20/10, Lions 9/13
Colts 38/38, Texans 3/20
Cheifs 34/30, Dolphins 24/20
Packers 28/20, Vikings 12/23
Eagles 35/20, Chargers 17/17
Rams 40/28, Saints 6/17
49ers 20/17, Redskins 12/52
Seahawks 36, Cowboys 13
Broncos 27, Giants 13
Raiders 24, Bills 13
Cardinals 20, Titans 18
Ravens 24, Bears 21
Falcons 29, Jets 27


Clearly a few games I did pretty bad in, and a few I did reasonably well in. Keep in mind these are scores from a hat.

The Miami-KC game was pretty good for me, I said 34-24 and it was 30-20 - the right point difference but shifted 4 points up. I got the colts and chargers scores correct and correctly chose the winner in each game. Unfortunately ATM I'm only 5-3 straight up, and my numbers for the WAS-SF and GB-MIN games were quite off. So yeah, 2 team scores correct ain't bad for picking from a hat.[/b]

dude, if you were picking from a hat....there is no talent involved....a monkey could throw doodie at team logos on the wall to predict the winner and use more skill than "picking scores from a hat"

No, I did pull from a hat, but the thread is a joke. It's because of the other guy who had a mathematical formula to predict scores, so i decided to try and do it the most random way possible and act like I had a formula or something.

Funny thing is, I think I'm doing well in the Pick 3 with these scores, the steelers/bengals game and especially the eagles/chargers game - got one of the scores right.

So after the late games I'm 8-5 straight up. I got a third correct score (Cardinals at 20 pts).
