Week 6 NFL Parlay: Sunday's NFL Picks and Predictions
4-Team NFL Parlay at +1327 - $50 bet wins $663!
The board is an odd one this week. There are a lot of bad-to-average teams laying big numbers against even worse teams, which makes identifying value a bit tough. Even still, there are a few games that look like they may be worth putting together in a parlay to try and hit a big bet for Week 6 in the NFL.
NFL Expert Picks
Leg 1: Packers -1 @ -105
This one sticks out to me as one that I can’t shake ahead of Sunday. The Packers are undefeated and currently trotting out one of the league’s best offensive units. Aaron Rodgers is back where he belongs, in the MVP conversation, and he’s got legitimate weapons at every position around him.
Meanwhile, Tom Brady finally looks old and the Buccs are coming off a loss to a Bears team that I think has over performed so far in 2020. Chris Godwin is banged up, and an offense that was supposed to set records this season has been up and down.
I’m not going to overthink this one. I’m taking the undefeated Packers minus the one point.
Leg 2: Dolphins -9.5 @ -106
I’m doubling down on this one based on how bad I think the Jets are. I already gave out the Dolphins as one of my picks for the week, and I’m adding them to my parlay as well.
I used to think the Giants were the worst team in football, but that distinction belongs solely to the Jets. Miami has played some good team close lately. Meanwhile, the Jets have scored more than one offensive touchdown one time this season and have lost by an average of 17.2 points per game.
Adam Gase is a joke and so are the Jets. Giving 9.5 points at 2-3 is a weird spot for the Dolphins to be in, but I like a two-to-three touchdown win for Miami.
Leg 3: Over 47.5 @ -109
In all honesty, the Ravens may score 50 points by themselves on Sunday. The second I saw this total, I jumped all over it, because the Philadelphia defense is atrocious.
Career days happen weekly against this unit, just ask Chase Claypool and his four touchdowns. If you have ever watched Nate Gerry play football, you know this total may be about 15 points too low. Not only is he lost in space when trying to cover, he also can’t tackle.
They can indeed get after the passer and have looked to be one of the best pass rushes in football, but what good is that this week when Lamar Jackson can run past everyone. I expect a massive day from the 2019 MVP. Think 250 yards passing, 125 rushing and four touchdowns before he’s pulled in the fourth, leading 42-20.
Leg 4: Browns + 3.5 @ -104
Every year we hear that this could be the Browns’ year, that this could be different from teams in the past, and every year they disappoint. But, something about this year’s team feels much more complete.
For starters, Kevin Stefanski has proven that he knows how to use the personnel he has. He’s constantly putting their skill players in a position to make a play, and we’ve seen it pay dividends with their offensive success.
I also am not a huge believer in this Pittsburgh team. I think they’re a decent squad, but Ben Roethlisberger looks to be struggling getting the ball deep down the field and could be vulnerable if they fall behind early.
I think the Browns could win outright, but 3.5 is a great line, leaving it open to a win with the hook despite a field goal loss for Cleveland.
