Bookies.com senior handicapper Adam Thompson has his finger on the pulse of the NFL. Thompson hit on 64.4% of his NFL best bets in 2019 and 62% of them in 2020, including over 80% for the playoffs. He is 1-3, +276 on parlays this season.

The underdog remains king through two weeks of the 2021 NFL season. After going 12-4 against the spread on the opening weekend, the dogs finished above .500 again in Week 2 at 9-6. They’re covering in 66% of all games so far.

Based on Week 3 line movement going into Thursday’s game between the Panthers and Texans, NFL betting fans aren’t learning any key lessons. In that game, the Panthers opened at -4.5 on the road but the line had moved to -8 by Thursday afternoon. That’s not all. Four other games have had the NFL lines move three points or more at sportsbooks and betting sites – three toward the favorite.

Here are the top two parlays for Week 3 of the NFL season:

The “West Coast Customs” Parlay

Leg 1: Broncos -10 over Jets

New York has a defense that can keep the team in games, but this one in the mountains against a clicking Broncos offense feels like an exception. The Jets may not score more than 10 against this defense, either. Drop the line to 10 on your sports betting app, however, for a parlay.

Leg 2: Cardinals -7 over Jaguars

The Jaguars’ offense has been a big disappointment. Here it faces a Cardinals team that will make it difficult to be competitive without scoring in the mid-20s, probably more. Kyler Murray has the Cards humming. If wagering at Arizona sports betting sites or elsewhere, eliminate the hook for the parlay.

Leg 3: Raiders -3 over Dolphins

Tua Tagovailoa is out, Jacoby Brissett is in, but he’s not a playmaker, and Miami has no run game to fall back on. Derek Carr and the LV offense is playing at a high level. The Raiders can blow past the Dolphins. We’re dropping the spread on this one.

The “Ohio Players” Parlay

Leg 1: Bengals +4 over Steelers

Joe Burrow’s bizarre INT parade cost Cincy a win at Chicago. Pittsburgh has been a house of horrors for the Bengals, but this Steelers defense is ravaged by injuries and the QB situation isn’t a good one.

Take a look at the latest Steelers vs Bengals odds, betting lines, injury report and more.

Leg 2: Browns -7 over Bears

The Browns should have beaten the Chiefs in Week 1, then cruised by the Texans in Week 2. They should be poised here to face a Bears team that has QB questions, per usual, and not enough juice to keep up. Cleveland can run and pass, and Chicago isn’t equipped.

Take a look at the latest Bears vs Browns odds, betting lines, injury report and more.

Leg 3: Bears-Browns Over 45.5

Cleveland has been complacent with leads in the last one-plus seasons, allowing opponents back into games as they learn how to put down teams. The Browns will still score points, but Bears QB Justin Fields will get a few looks and make a few plays. If they can get close to 20 points, this total topples with ease.
