As we arrive at essentially the quarter pole of the NFL season, parlays are more popular than ever in sportsbooks. If you would like to partake, check these NFL picks out.
I'm not suggesting to go crazy and have some exotic double-digit entry, which has virtually no chance of winning unless you would be betting $5.00 or less on one for grins. Rather, a more intelligent approach that gives you a better a chance of winning with the right teams chosen.
2-Team Parlay - Panthers (-3) and Cowboys (-2)
Atlanta and San Francisco are going to attract a lot of attention by those making NFL week 4 picks. The Falcons offense is on fire and the 49ers are back home off two road blowouts.
However, I prefer Carolina in this spot, even giving the three points because the Atlanta defense ranks 22nd against the run and is 29th versus the pass. Look for Cam Newton to exploit this and the Panthers to win by a touchdown. While I understand Dez Bryant is doubtful, Dak Prescott had been proficient in using all receivers and the Dallas run game is clicking again. Expect the Cowboys to win by six or more.
3-Team Parlay - Ravens (-3) - Browns (+8) - Rams (+8)
Might have to shop around for the best odds, because the marketplace is rather volatile on these three contests, so make sure to enhance your opportunities. Baltimore hosts Oakland, who was fortunate to escape at Tennessee last week. Hard scheduling spot for the Raiders and it should be known they are despicable 1-18 SU in Eastern Time zone.
Cleveland played better last week and should have knocked off Miami. Washington got much needed victory over the Giants. Though the spread has come down for 9.5, the Redskins have not been favored by more than a touchdown since 2009. Do you want to trust them with their history?
The Rams have a stunning 2-1 record and are off a couple of outright upsets. I am not suggesting Los Angeles can or will win this game outright, but Arizona is in some turmoil as opposing teams have learned how to slow the Cardinals deep passing offense. Take the points.
4-Team Money Line Parlay
What we are trying to do here is group four teams that have a very good chance to win and take the point spread out of equation. Of course upsets happen, but needing this contingent to just win outright is quite helpful.
Panthers - Texans - Cardinals - Steelers
If correct, a $100 bet currently should pay $330 and change, which is not a bad payout and reduces risk.
