NFL Picks: Week 7 NFL Parlay

A great way to mix up your NFL Picks is by identifying slight underdogs in the NFL odds, and taking advantage of their money line price in a parlay. How can we use these methods in our Week 7 betting action?

A normal 2-team parlay pays out only at +250, but with our two one-point underdogs this week, a money line parlay with them will net a potential profit of +340, adding a ton of value to our parlay while only increasing the risk slightly. Let’s take a look at the two teams I have highlighted for our NFL picks in Week 7.

NFL Picks: Week 7 Fades & Games to Avoid 

Bears vs. Redskins 

The Bears travel into Washington DC this weekend to play the Redskins, and while the real battle may be taking place down the road in Congress, this game should be a battle in it’s own right, and the Skins come in as -1 favorites in the NFL odds. The Bears have had a little extra rest this week after playing on Thursday, and I think that will be a deciding factor in this game. 

The Skins have not played well at home so far this season, losing both of their games there. Now under Robert Griffin III, the Redskins are only 5-5 SU at home, and against a Bears team that has not only a better offense, but a better defense as well, it could be a struggle for the Skins at home. 

If Stephen Paea ends up playing and is able to slow down Alfred Morris in this game, the Bears should have a great shot at the road upset here. Even with all the injuries on their defense, they have been bending and not breaking every time they play. Chicago is 6-3 SU in their last nine road games, and while both teams have been horrible ATS this season, one of them has to cover here.

Ravens vs. Steelers 

In what is normally one of the better rivalries in all of sports, not just the NFL, the Ravens head into Pittsburgh this weekend to play the Steelers. This season it seems the rivalry may be on a new level, as both teams are kind of fighting for the same wildcard playoff spot at this point in the season, and both are currently looking up at the new, improved, and very talented Bengals. While the Steelers are only 1-4, they still believe they could make a run at a wildcard spot. 

It seems only one of these teams will make the playoffs, and this game could go a long way in determine a tie breaking scenario if it possibly came down to it. However right now, I am favoring the road Ravens in this game, and to grab the wildcard spot. If they could ever get off to a better start in games, the Ravens would be right up there with the Bengals, but Baltimore has only scored 3 first quarter points in their last five games, however I think that will cease this week against the Steelers.

Even if they don’t score in the first, this is the type of game the Ravens could win 6-3. Pittsburgh is only 1-5-1 ATS in their last seven home games, and 1-5 SU in their last six home games. I fully expect the Ravens’ pass rush to demolish the Steelers’ offensive line in this game, leaving Ben Roethlisberger running for his life, and the giving the Ravens enough of an edge to win this game on the road, all while cashing in for our sports picks.

My Pick: 2-team parlay Bears +100 & Ravens +120 (+340)
