To get a jump start on building your NFL betting bankroll, use my NFL preseason week 2 parlay picks to score big. Can New England make it 2 wins a row? What’s going to happen when San Francisco travels to Denver?
NFL Pre-season Week 2 Two-Team Parlay Pick
- New England
Chicago at New England
When: Thursday, Aug. 18 at 8:00 pm ET
Where: Gillette Stadium, Foxboro
Analysis: The Bears didn’t look all that great in a 0 to 22 loss to the Denver Broncos in their first 2016 NFL Preseason game. Chicago just didn’t have it. I expect to see a healthy dose of quarterbacks David Fales and Connor Shaw in this game. The Bears are keeping Brian Hoyer to back-up Jay Cutler. Fales or Shaw will be the second back-up.
New England might play QB Tom Brady in this matchup since he’s sitting out the first 4 games of the regular season. Even if they don’t, back-up Jimmy Garoppolo proved that he can lead the team to a win. Garoppolo completed 11 out of 18 passes for 168 yards. New England should have no trouble getting the W in this game on Thursday.
Pick: New England
Miami at Dallas
When: Friday, Aug. 19 at 8:00 pm ET
Where: AT&T Stadium, Arlington
Analysis: Dallas’ 24 to 28 loss to the Los Angeles Rams as a 5 point underdog wasn’t that bad. The Cowboys played Mississippi State rookie Dak Prescott heavily at QB in that game. Prescott was sensational when going 10 out of 12 for 139 yards and throwing 2 touchdown passes.
Miami beat the Giants 27 to 10 in their first NFL Preseason game. Coach Adam Gase’s offensive system is already paying dividends as rookie QB Brandon Doughty went 7 out of 9 for 66 yards while RB Isaiah Pead averaged 5 yards per carry. I like Miami to show more than Dallas in this matchup.
NFL Preseason Week 2 Three-Team Parlay
- New England
- San Francisco
San Francisco at Denver
When: Saturday, Aug. 20 at 9:00 pm ET
Where: Sports Authority Field at Mile High, Denver
Analysis: The good news in San Francisco’s 13 to 24 loss to the Houston Texans in NFL Preseason Week 1 is that coach Chip Kelly didn’t show everything that his team is going to do during the regular season.
The second piece of good news is that the 49’ers rushed for 236 yards from 34 carries. San Francisco is going to have a tough time deciding between 2 below average quarterbacks. But couldn’t that be said for Denver as well? My money is going to be on San Francisco to get the job done on August 20.
Pick: San Francisco
