2-Team Parlay Pick NFL Week 2

  • Arizona Cardinals
  • Kansas City Chiefs

Arizona Cardinals (0-1) at Indianapolis Colts (0-1)

Analysis: The Cardinals didn’t show up in their 35-23 road loss against Detroit in Week 1 as they allowed Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford to toss four TD passes and Detroit to outscore them 20-6 in the final quarter. More importantly, Arizona saw Pro Bowl running back David Johnson leave the game late in the third quarter with a wrist injury after getting limited to just 23 rushing yards on 11 carries, although he did add six receptions for 68 yards.

Veteran quarterback Carson Palmer was mediocre at best in the opener as he was limited to 27 of 48 passing for 269 yards and one touchdown, but a trio of costly interceptions, one of which Lions cornerback Justin Bethel returned 82 yards for a touchdown. The Cards led 17-9 lead with 5:37 left in the third quarter but got outscored 26-6 from that point on.

The Indianapolis Colts – and specifically, quarterback Scott Tolzien – looked completely pitiful in their stunning 46-9 beatdown at the hands of the revitalized Los Angeles Rams on Sunday while never coming close to covering the spread as a 3.5-point road underdog as starting quarterback Andrew Luck missed the affair with his ailing shoulder.

Tolzien completed 9 of 18 passes for 128 yards but tossed two costly pick-six interceptions that the Colts could never bounce back from before being benched in favor of Jacoby Brissett, who the team said will start in Week 2 against Arizona. Indianapolis also allowed Rams quarterback Jared Goff to complete 21 of 29 passes for 306 yards and one touchdown in the humbling defeat.

As far as this Week 2 matchup is concerned, I like the Arizona Cardinals to rebound in a big way even if David Johnson isn’t at 100 percent and Indianapolis is going to start a clearly more competent Jacoby Brissett in this affair.

The Cardinals are a perfect 6-0 ATS in their last 6 Week 2 games and a robust 13-3 ATS in their last 16 road games against a team with a losing home record. Conversely, the Colts are just 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games in the month of September.

Indianapolis wisely got Brissett from New England just before the start of the regular season. But clearly, the Colts are a team without much leadership, which is why head coach Chuck Pagano is my pick to be the first head coach fired this season. Keep it simple and back the Cardinals to win and cover the spread with room to spare after falling apart in the second half of their opener against Detroit.

Analysis: The Philadelphia Eagles outscored Washington 11-0 in the fourth quarter en route to a solid 30-17 win in their opener. Quarterback Carson Wentz completed 26 of 39 passes for 307 yards with two touchdowns and one interception to help Philly cash in as a 1-point road favorite. The Eagles also forced four turnovers in the win while limiting the Redskins to just 64 rushing yards and winning the time of possession battle by almost 10 full minutes.

Kansas City made my Week 1 pick of a cover against New England stand up as the Chiefs stunned Tom Brady and company in their 42-27 season-opening win while covering the spread as an 8-point road dog. Veteran quarterback Alex Smith was outstanding as he completed 28 of 35 passes for 368 yards and four touchdowns while running back Kareem Hunt made the most of his opportunity as the Chiefs new starter by rushing for 148 yards and one touchdown on 17 carries while adding five receptions for 98 yards and two additional scores. The 42 points are the most the Patriots have allowed since coach Bill Belichick took over in 2000, a span of 307 games — including playoffs. Smith hit Tyreek Hill and Hunt with touchdown bombs of 75 and 78 yards, respectively.

While Philadelphia was solid in their Week 1 win over Washington, the Kansas City Chiefs are the pick for me in this Week 2 pairing, seeing as how they are the only team in this contest with an elite defense.

While the Eagles have gone 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games in the month of September, the Birds are also just 2-6 ATS in their last 8 Week 2 games and an identical 2-6 ATS in their last 8 road games. On the flip side of the coin, Kansas City has gone 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall and 5-2 ATS in their L/7 games against a team with a winning record.

While the Eagles have gone 4-1 in their last five meetings against the Chiefs, I like Kansas City to get it done as head coach Andy Reid beats his former team by at least a touchdown.

3-Team Parlay Pick NFL Week 2

  • Arizona Cardinals
  • Kansas City Chiefs
  • Denver Broncos

Dallas Cowboys (1-0) at Denver Broncos (1-0)
When: Sunday, September 17, 2017 at 4:25 PM ET
Where: Sports Authority Field, Denver, Colorado
NFL Odds: Denver +1.5
Total: OFF

Analysis: Dallas laid an emphatic 19-3 smackdown on the division rival New York Giants in their regular season opener as quarterback Dak Prescott completed 24 of 39 passes for 268 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions while Ezekiel Elliott added 104 rushing yards in the win. The Cowboys limited the Giants to a paltry 35 rushing yards while picking off Eli Manning once and not allowing the G-Men into the end zone.

In their MNF game the Broncos blocked a late game field-goal attempt that helped Denver squeak past the San Diego Chargers. Starting QB Trevor Siemian and the bruising Broncos D did just enough for the W.

While the Cowboys are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games in Week 2 and a robust 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games following an ATS win, Dallas is also just 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games overall. With the Broncos going a perfect 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games in the month of September and a consistent 7-3-1 ATS in their last 11 home games before the start of this season, I like Von Miller and company to get the hard-fought home win by harassing Dak Prescott and shutting down Ezekiel Elliott en route to the narrow win.

With the home team in this series going 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings and Denver having one of the stingiest defenses in all of football, I like the Broncos to get the win in Week 2 as surprising home underdogs against a Cowboys team that I don’t believe is nearly as good as they looked against New York in Week 1, particularly on the defensive side of the ball.
