Week 2 NFL Parlays to Back: ‘Team Rebound’ & ‘Big Faves’

Week 2 NFL Parlays to Back: ‘Team Rebound’ & ‘Big Faves’

Week 1 of this unique 2020 NFL season went off without a hitch from a COVID-19 standpoint. Oddsmakers may have put too much stock in a potentially limited homefield advantage.

The home teams in Week 1 went a combined 8-8, slightly under the 51.8% of home squads in 2019. But they also went 9-6-1 against the spread. Home teams last year covered just 42.2% of the time.

The spreads didn't fool us in Week 1. After going 64.4% on NFL best bets in 2019, we went a perfect 5-0 to open 2020, including 1-1 on parlays for a $496 return. Last season those who invested $100 in our recommended parlay picks ended up $1,491 in the black.

Here are two parlays for Week 2 of the NFL season:

The “Team Rebound” Parlay

Leg 1: Cowboys -4 vs. Falcons

Week 2 NFL Parlays to Back: ‘Team Rebound’ & ‘Big Faves’ 1

Dallas dropped a 20-17 affair at the Rams, but there are very fixable errors that should right the ship – 3-for-12 on third downs and poor play calling in the fourth quarter included. The Cowboys should score at will on a porous Falcons defense. Atlanta will get points as well, but Dallas’ defense has playmakers to make key stops.

Leg 2: Eagles ML vs. Rams

The Eagles conservatively sat running back Miles Sanders (hamstring) against Washington, a possible sign of arrogance that blew up in a 10-point loss thanks to a punchless offense. They won’t make that same mistake again. His return, and that of top OL Lane Johnson, should make a world of difference for Carson Wentz. The Rams did just about everything right last week and still managed just 20 points. The Eagles’ defense can do similar work, and the 10 a.m. PT start adds an advantage to host Philly.

Leg 3: Panthers-Buccaneers Over 47.5

Each team was outscored in Week 1, combining to score 53 points but combining to allow 68. We can expect more points to be scored by Tom Brady and the Bucs in their second game together, especially against a Panthers defense that is well behind the Saints. The Panthers should hold up their end, too. Christian McCaffrey can produce against any defense and Teddy Bridgewater is highly underrated. Lock in this parlay for the best payout at BetMGM.

The “Big Faves” Parlay

Leg 2: 49ers ML at Jets

The Niners began defense of their NFC Championship with a surprising home loss to Kyler Murray and the Cardinals. They were banged up on the offensive front then and they’re banged up now. But the Jets are on another level of bad. The team wasn’t very competitive vs. the Bills and now its top playmaker, the underachieving Le’Veon Bell, won’t be there. It won’t take a Herculean offensive effort by San Fran to win.

Leg 2: Bills -5.5 at Dolphins

Week 2 NFL Parlays to Back: ‘Team Rebound’ & ‘Big Faves’ 2

The Dolphins managed just 11 points in Week 1, and it doesn’t get much easier against the Bills. On the other side, Buffalo might have one of the more-formidable offenses in the NFL, with two young and dynamic RBs, Stefon Diggs and dual-threat Josh Allen. Miami’s run defense is going to struggle. Buffalo can get a lead and pull away on the ground.

Leg 3: Chiefs ML at Chargers

The Chiefs looked like a Super Bowl favorite in their Week 1 dismantling of the Texans on Thursday night. The Chargers’ defense did too, but the offense couldn’t scrape together 17 points against the Bengals. L.A.’s defense will be a stiffer test for Patrick Mahomes and Co., and the spread is big for a road favorite. But expect KC to leave town with a victory.
