When it comes to betting NFL football betting, sportsbooks have found parlay cards are about has irresistible as going thru Taco Bell at 3:00 am for a sack of food after an evening of let's say 'having fun'.
Of course, a 'Run for the Border' is not like strolling the aisles of a Whole Foods, but if you think about, it is pretty much the same thing as betting parlays, you know it is not really good for you, but on enough occasions, it hits the spot.
I worked over the NFL odds with diligence and have this trio of parlays for your consideration.
2-Team Parlay - Vikings (-3) and Redskins (+1)
Minnesota is undefeated and shown few weaknesses other than not running the ball very well. With Philadelphia permitting 4.8 yards a carry, the Vikings could start to rectify that problem. The Eagles have lost two straight after a hot start and their offensive line is going thru upheaval which is not what you want when facing Minnesota's defense. With the Vikes 19-3 ATS since last season and 9-1 ATS on the road, great spot against a slumping team.
Washington is on a sweet 4-0 SU and ATS move and primed to keep it going in Detroit. With the Lions having no running game, the Redskins defense can focus on rushing the passer and they got five sacks last week. With Washington on a 7-0 ATS roll versus teams permitting 350 or more yards a game since last season, have the Skins winning this one.
3-Team Parlay - Raiders (+1) - Giants (-3) - Saints/Chiefs UNDER 50.5
For this three-teamer on making NFL picks, here are the reasons why I am comfortable with this trio.
Oakland for whatever reason is better on the road than at home and is stellar 8-1 ATS as a visiting underdog. Besides, if Jacksonville was truly better, wouldn't they be a larger favorite?
The New York Giants are in London with Los Angeles and while some might stress about giving three points, is it that big of a deal against a team like the Rams who have given up 30 or more points in three of their last four games and ranks 28th in rushing?
Finally, Drew Brees and the Saints historically score fewer points when playing outdoors and Kansas City has the capacity to run the ball and play keep away, which should keep the final score down. There you have it!
4-Team Money Line Parlay
Everyone plays parlays different and one of the one's I have always favored in taking teams that I am all but certain will win and assemble them together on the money line. This reduces my risk, just having to be on the right side of the game and avoiding point spreads and while the payout is not always the best, it is not bad either. Here are my choices for NFL Week 7.
Bengals - Patriots - Bills - Broncos
If correct, a $100 bet currently should pay $255 and change, which is good payout.
