My Insiders Look At The Best NFL Odds Week 2 Parlay Picks
N.Y. Jets (+2) over BUFFALO / CAROLINA (-11.5) over San Francisco
Yes, you have to wait from Thursday’s AFC East matchup until Sunday to find out if you were right, but I think you’ll enjoy the winnings here. The Bills showed last year that they’re mostly talk — but they foiled the Jets’ postseason chances with a Week 17 win out there in Orchard Park. So I see the Jets coming back with a vengeance here, especially with Geno Smith back at the helm.
And San Francisco? Playing three time zones away against a Carolina team who will be rolling with momentum after a Week 1 win at Denver? Please. You could make this a 14-point spread and I might still take the Panthers.
Kansas City (PK) over HOUSTON / Baltimore over CLEVELAND (+3)
The Kansas City Chiefs absolutely dismantled Houston in Week 1 last year, and they did it again in their wild card matchup. So why is this a pick’em? Maybe it’s the arrival of Brock Osweiler to take over the Texans’ offense. But Kansas City comes back just as strong this season. I think that Osweiler makes this a closer game, but I don’t see the Texans putting the brakes on Alex Smith and the Chief offense.
In Cleveland, while I love the RGIII experiment, I don’t think they can beat a Baltimore team set to compete in the AFC North with Joe Flacco back at the helm. Maybe if this were five or six points? Then Cleveland’s solid defense might be able to get the cover. As it is, though, I see the Ravens winning on the road and covering.
Tampa Bay (+9) over ARIZONA / OAKLAND (-3.5) over Atlanta
No, I don’t think Tampa Bay can beat Arizona. But can Jameis Winston rally the team to keep things closer than nine points against the Cardinals? I think it’s definitely possible. He played with more confidence each week, and the Tampa Bay defense got more solid with each game as well. Arizona could be caught looking past a team they see as an upstart, while the Bucs have their sights set on them. So I think the Cardinals will win, but the Bucs will cover.
The Raiders are one of my wild card picks in the AFC this year, with a dominant pass rush and arguably the best QB-WR tandem in the AFC West. I see them getting out to an early lead over the jet-lagged Falcons and holding on for the win (and the cover).
MINNESOTA (PK) over Green Bay / CHICAGO (-2.5) over Philadelphia
This parlay starts Sunday night and takes you through Monday night. I think the Vikings grew up last year and are ready to defend their NFC North title when the Pack comes to town. Green Bay has their line back, but they didn’t add significantly, and the Vikings will have the momentum of their new stadium instead of playing at the icebox where they fell to Seattle last year in the wild card round. Teddy Bridgewater and Adrian Peterson make a powerful offensive duo.
I also like Jay Cutler to outduel Sam Bradford, as one quarterback who has regained his confidence is taking on another who still can’t find his.
