My buddy JZ decided at some point last season to start picking games by flipping a coin. It sounded like a pretty ridiculous idea, and it was…but I’ll be damned if that coin didn’t pick correctly against the spread at an uncanny rate.

That said, the coin is back for week 3 of the NFL season…and while I don’t think it will beat me this week, I’ve learned to respect the power of chance…so, fuck it, I’ll throw $5 on a coin-projected 10-team parlay.

From JZ:

Week 3 Coin Toss

A quarter will be tossed twice for each game played. I will be using a Quarter from the year 1967. The coin will be flipped in the air from a standing position, land on the ground, and read aloud.

1st coin toss: Heads = Home Team; Tails = Road Team

2nd coin toss: Heads = Over; Tails = Under

HOME TEAM = ALL CAPS
road team = lower case

And here we go…

ATL -6 UNDER
oak +9.5 UNDER
hou +4 UNDER
NYG -13 OVER
az +3 UNDER
mia +12.5 UNDER
CHI -3 OVER
MIN -3.5 UNDER
SEA -9.5 OVER
det +4 UNDER
no +5.5 UNDER
PHI -3 UNDER
IND -5 UNDER
BAL -3 OVER
GB +3 OVER
nyj +9 UNDER
