Parlay Picks NFL Week 1

The NFL is back! Use my Week 1 parlay picks to get your season started off with a bang. I have a 2 and 3 team parlay pick. Happy hunting!

What’s going to go down when the Washington Redskins and Philadelphia Eagles hook up in their Week 1 NFC East division matchup?

Will Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers get the road win and ATS cover in Frisco against the rebuilding 49ers?

Are the Cincinnati Bengals a lock to take care of business at home against their longtime AFC North division rivals when they host the Baltimore Ravens in their opener?

If you’re looking for answers to each of the aforementioned three questions, then I’ve got answers in the form of my expert Week 1 NFL parlay picks trio!

2-Team Parlay Pick NFL Preseason Week 1

  • Philadelphia/Washington Over
  • Carolina Panthers

Philadelphia at Washington
When: Sunday, September 10, 2017 at 1:00 PM ET
Where: FedEx Field, Landover, MD
TV: FOX
NFL Odds: Washington -1
Total: 47.5

Analysis: With two solid offenses going up against what I believe will be two mediocre defenses, you can expect both, Washington’s Kirk Cousins and Philadelphia’s Carson Wentz, to put plenty of points on the board in a matchup that looks like another divisional thriller just waiting to happen.

The Over is 3-0 in the last three meetings between these longtime foes and 5-1 in the last six meetings overall. The Over is also 7-3 in the last 10 meetings and both of these teams have scored at least 20 points on the other in nine of the last 10 meetings overall.

If you need more evidence that this is going to be a high-scoring affair, you should know that the Over is 11-1 in Philadelphia’s last 12 road games and 8-1 in their last 9 games against their NFC East division rivals. The Over is also 4-0 in Washington’s last 4 games in the month of September and 7-1 in their last 8 games against their NFC East foes.

Pick: Over

Carolina Panthers at San Francisco 49ers
When: Sunday, September 10, 2017 at 4:25 PM ET
Where: Levi’s Stadium, Santa Clara, California
TV: FOX
NFL Odds: Carolina -6
Total: 48

Analysis: I know the Carolina Panthers looked lost and confused last season after reaching the Super Bowl just the season before, but I like Carolina to bounce back from its injury-riddled campaign to beat the stuffing out of the rebuilding San Francisco 49ers and whoever they start under center in this regular season opener.

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a million times the last few years. Christian McCaffrey is going to be a flat-out star and speedy former Ohio State wide receiver Curtis Samuel is going to surprise as well. San Francisco’s third-string backup C.J. Beathard, a third round pick out of Iowa, has completely outplayed both, veterans Brian Hoyer and second-stringer Matt Barkley this preseason. Carolina is 8-1 in their last nine road games against the Niners and a robust 13-3 ATS in the last 16 meetings overall, making them the easy pick to win and cash in!

Pick: Panthers

3-Team Parlay Pick NFL Preseason Week 3

  • Philadelphia/Washington Over
  • Carolina Panthers
  • Cincinnati Bengals

Baltimore Ravens at Cincinnati Bengals
When: Sunday, September 10, 2017 at 1:00 PM ET
Where: Paul Brown Stadium, Cincinnati, Ohio
TV: CBS
NFL Odds: Cincinnati -2.5
Total: 43

Analysis: The Baltimore Ravens likely won’t have starting quarterback Joe Flacco on the field for their regular season opener against longtime AFC North division rival Cincinnati, but I don’t think it would have mattered much either way as the Bengals are the easy pick to get the win and ATS cover.

Both teams in this regular season opener have solid defenses, but Baltimore is seriously offensively-challenged while Cincinnati restocked its pedestrian offense from last season by adding fleet-footed wide receiver John Ross and talented running back Joe Mixon in the NFL draft.

Cincinnati is a near-perfect 3-0-1 ATS in their last four Week 1 games while also going 5-2 ATS in their last seven meetings against Baltimore and 4-1 ATS in their last five home dates against the Ravens.

Baltimore won’t have any problem covering the modest spread as 2.5-point home faves.

Pick: Bengals
