Parlay Picks by Will Armitage. Will has been an avid sports fan since the early 1980s. His first sporting love was a mediocre English soccer team that dwelled in the lower leagues for decades. He since has switched allegiance to the EPL’s Arsenal. Every year since 1994, he has bet on the Minnesota Vikings to lift the Vince Lombardi. He is still waiting to be paid….

Last week’s parlay was so close to kicking off the season in style!

Detroit couldn’t quite find a way past Philadelphia. My dog moneyline bet broke my parlay.

Like last season, I am constructing a five-leg parlay, focussing on one moneyline underdog bet, one over, one under, and a couple of spread bets.

The odds of this particular parlay landing would be just over +3400.

Let’s see whether I can hit all five. Without further ado, here are my picks:

Moneyline Parlay – Dolphins Vs. Ravens – (Best Odds – +167)

I expect the Dolphins to start the season in much the same vein in which they finished last season; viz, impressively and by going 2-0 against AFC rivals on the East Coast.

After putting the Patriots to the sword in Week 1, they will travel up the coast to Maryland and hand the hit-or-miss Ravens a first defeat of the season.

The momentum, confidence, and much-lauded addition of Tyreek Hill will bring the best out of Tua et al.

The camaraderie of the team, with the low turnover of players going out and coming into Florida this postseason, brings belief across the Sunshine State that this current pod of Dolphins could emulate the success of Dan Marino’s vintage.

Ravens fans will be scratching their heads about which team will show up on Sunday; the one which blitzed to an 8-3 start last season or the capitulators?

I expect the Ravens to struggle past the Jets in Week 1 and then suffer an uncomfortable first defeat at home to a slicker and more organized Fins’ team.

With many new faces coming into Baltimore, the lack of Regular Season play-time together will tell and Miami will ease to a second straight victory.

The predictions I made back in June duly played out. Miami defeated New England. Baltimore made easier progress against the Jets than I expected.

The result of this has been practically zero movement in the best odds for the Dolphins this coming weekend.

Three months ago, the line was at +166. Bet365 now has the Dolphins at +167, whilst the worst odds are +148.

This means that for my $100 parlay, those betting with Bet365 would make over $250 more if it lands than someone taking the worst odds of +148.

It pays to shop around for those best odds!

Over/Under Parlay – Titans Vs. Bills (50) (-110)

The Highmark Stadium will witness another one-score game victory for their Super Bowl favorite team.

After squeaking past the Rams, the Bills will be run very close by a combination of Mr. D Henry’s heroics and inspired Titan(ic) Defense to restrict Messrs Allen and Diggs to a low-scoring victory.

The scoreline will surprisingly be more akin to the Bills’ owner’s daughter’s tennis scores, such as 6-3.

Jessica Pegula will be tweeting her support to her father’s team, whilst those bettors who believed that the Titans vs Bills would be a high-scoring affair saw the writing on the wall before the end of the first quarter with both defenses keeping the punters (kickers rather than bettors) busy all game!

The Bills may have put the Rams to the sword when I had expected a closer contest.

However, my view on the under remains.

The total has drifted down since I made my selections when the lines first came out. My take was at 51.5. Now the highest total is at 50.

Other books are showing 49 or 49.5.

Spread Parlay – Buccaneers Vs. Saints (+3) (-110)

After the GOAT’s struggles in Texas in Week 1, he heads into the raucous Caesars Superdome and duly delivers the goods, snatching victory from the jaws of defeat for the umpteenth time in his career with a last-minute winning drive to go ahead by 1 point at the death.

He may well have broken the hearts of New Orleans’ fans, whose team failed to fire in Georgia last week, to hand them an inauspicious 0-2 start to their season.

However, those bettors who felt the Saints would cover the spread and bet accordingly as an emotional hedge will be feeling that bit better as the wallets will be heavier.

The Saints somehow rallied past the Falcons at the weekend.

They will have a spring in their step for this NFC South clash of the unbeaten teams. Tampa wasn’t quite at their best in Texas but saw off the Cowboys comfortably.

I’m glad to have taken the early +4 on the Saints. They are now priced between +2.5 and +3 across the sportsbooks

Over/Under Parlay – Patriots Vs. Steelers (40.5) (-100)

New-boy Kenny Pickett and fresh-faced star Mac Jones will serve up a more exciting touchdown fest than the sportsbooks have envisioned.

Along with the two games featuring both New York teams, which also have a total of 43 for the Over/Under, this will be a game when the offenses on show help boost their average points tallies for the season.

The Patriots were the 5th highest scorers in the league last season and traveled particularly well with three-quarters of flights across the country resulting in victories.

The partisan Steelers fans will drive their home debutant to an impressive performance in a memorably high-scoring match, even though they will not see the result they so desperately want.

When I made up this parlay earlier in the summer, the total was set up at 43.

After the poor showing in Foxboro, this has now come back to the lowest mark of all the games.

The sportsbooks are now between 40.5 and 41. I maintain my position to play the over here.

As per Malcolm’s newsletter about recency bias, maybe Vegas has overreacted?

Will Bill Belichick have his team better primed to perform on the road like we often saw last year? I hope so.

Spread Parlay – Seahawks Vs. 49ers (-8) (-110)

Without their talismanic favorite son at the helm of Seattle, the Seahawks will experience what is set to become a regular theme of their 2022 season: disappointment on the road, as well as at home.

The good news for the players is that the return flight to Seattle will be their shortest flight back home this season so they will only have to receive a verbal thrashing from the septuagenarian Pete Carroll for a couple of hours.

The red-hot 49ers will put their NFC West rivals firmly in their place in a one-sided affair and rack up a clear double-digit margin of victory.

They may only have defeated the Bears and the Seahawks, but the odds compilers at the sportsbooks are already trimming the 49ers’ Super Bowl odds.

After their surprise at a sodden Soldier Field on Sunday, I expect angry 49ers to come out firing on all cylinders.

There is a big difference of opinion amongst the sportsbooks on this spread, with BetMGM having San Francisco at -9.5.

Caesars is best priced at -8. If you fancy the 49ers to register their first victory and cover the spread as well, then choose where you place your bet wisely!

You wouldn’t want to see a 9-point margin of victory for the 49ers if you had bet this particular game with BetMGM!

How To Bet NFL Parlays

A parlay bet is a sports wager that combines several bets on one ticket alone.

Usually, you would go with moneyline bets but can use spreads, totals, and futures.

You can include props in many cases, and bettors can choose to link together just two sides, or up to 15 or more depending on the sportsbook.

Parlays are wholly customizable meaning bettors get to choose how big they want the odds to go.

How many sides will be included, and how difficult is it to make each leg of the parlay or do the same game parlays.

The way to establish consistency is to have just two or three sides and avoid chasing astronomical odds.

It’s fine to take your shot at a massive payout as well, but be sure to only risk the money you’re prepared to lose.
