2022 NFL Week 1 Parlay Picks

If you’re looking for sure picks, below are my best parlay bets for NFL Week 1.

I have evaluated all the Week 1 games and come up with my locks for a five-bet parlay. If you hit this five-bet $100 parlay, the payout would be just over $1,700.

Chiefs vs. Browns Picks For Moneyline Parlay

Moneyline: Chiefs (-233)

Kansas City will be hoping to return to the Super Bowl for the third year in a row. Their AFC title defense starts against the Browns, who made the playoffs in 2020 for the first time since 2002.

Kansas outscored their opponents by 111 points last season, which is almost six points per game. They also held opponents to 5.6 yards per play and managed 6.3 yards.

The Browns were surprisingly outscored by their opponents last season. However, the run game was superb, with 4.8 yards per carry. This unit will have to carry them to make the playoffs again.

The Chiefs have been dominant the past few seasons and I expect that to continue against the Browns.

Titans vs. Cardinals Picks For Spread Parlay

Spread: Titans to cover (-3.0) (-110)

Tennessee made it to the divisional round in the playoffs last season. Their offense was outstanding last year. They have strengthened their defense with the addition of Bud Dupree.

Last season Tennessee outscored their opponents by three points per game. With the addition of Julio Jones to this explosive offense, I expect Tennessee to push for the number one seed.

The Cardinals haven’t added too many starters in the offseason. However, J.J. Watt will be disruptive upfront for the Cardinals.

With the Cardinals’ average 2020 season, I expect the Titans to cover the spread easily.

Falcons vs. Eagles Picks For O/U Parlay

Over/Under: (Under 48.5) (-110)

The Eagles and Falcons will be feeling confident ahead of this season. The Falcons have added a generational talent in Kyle Pitts. The Eagles have decided to stick with Jalen Hurts after he impressed last season.

The Eagles averaged 20.9 points per game last season and conceded 26.1 points. However, they have strengthened their defense in the offseason. So, I expect Philly to outscore their opponents this year.

The Falcons have stuck with Matt Ryan after a disappointing 2020. Atlanta has also lost their star receiver who went to Tennessee. Last year they scored 24.8 points and conceded 25.9 points per game.

These teams have more robust defenses than offenses, so I expect them to hit the under.

Lions vs. 49ers Picks For O/U Passing Yards Parlay

Over/Under Passing Yards: Jimmy Garoppolo (over 224.5) (-110)

Jimmy Garoppolo will want to prove himself to Kyle Shanahan after San Fran drafted Trey Lance in April. However, Jimmy G is expected to start while Lance develops for most of this season.

Garoppolo had a disrupted 2020 season due to injury. He only played in six games and averaged 183 yards per game. He had a TD: INT ratio of 7:5. But he was missing plenty of weapons and playing injured.

Detroit is at the start of its rebuild under their new HC. Last season the Lions conceded 284.9 passing yards per game. They haven’t strengthened in the secondary over the summer.

This means Garoppolo should easily hit the over.

Bengals vs. Vikings Picks For O/U Receiving Yards Parlay

Over/Under Receiving Yards: Justin Jefferson (over 76) (-115)

Justin Jefferson is coming off a break-out first year in the league. He had 1,400 receiving yards with seven TDs and 15.9 yards per reception.

Jefferson was so dominant he set a Super Bowl-era rookie record for most receiving yards in a season. This season he will line up with the same faces due to the Vikings focusing on their defense in the offseason.

Cincinnati has high hopes for this season after a productive offseason. They added some veteran DB’s in free agency after conceding almost 250 passing yards per game last season.

Jefferson should be Cousins’ favorite target. I wouldn’t be surprised if JJ starts the season off with a three-figure game.
