NFL Picks and Parlays: Top Week 5 Parlay Picks for Early Sunday Games

If you're an experienced sports bettor then you've heard of a parlay before. If you're new to the sports betting world and lingo a parlay is multiple bets stacked together that we need each to win for longshot odds. You may have seen screenshots on the internet of people posting insane parlays that they've won thousands of dollars from. Well, I'm here to give you my favorite picks for a parlay across the early NFL Sunday games. So we'll be making our picks from the eight 1:00 p.m. ET games.

New England Patriots Running Back - Damien Harris Over 14.5 Rush Attempts (-125)

The Patriots abandoned the run in their loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as a result Harris rushed just four times. This week he and the Pats get a juicy matchup in which they are favored by 9 points against the Houston Texans. Despite the lack of carries Harris has dominated the snaps by Patriots running backs. Look for New England to get the ground game going in this one, leaning on Harris.

Jacksonville Jaguars Wide Receiver - Laviska Shenault Over 58.5 Receiving Yards (-115)

The Jaguars lost starting wide reciever D.J. Chark last week to injury on Thursday night. Shenault in his second season quickly became quarterback Trevor Lawrence's go-to target. He caught 6 passes on 7 targets for 99 yards. The Titans have allowed the most yards to opposing wide receivers through the first four weeks.

Green Bay Packers Moneyline (-150)

The Packers are on the road in Cincinnati this week and take on the Bengals. Both are 3-1, as the Bengals have gotten off to a hot start with a big road win in Pittsburgh, and two wins over rookie quarterbacks. They squeaked by the Vikings in overtime back in Week 1 after a 4th quarter collapse. The Bengals are dealing with an injury to their starting running back Joe Mixon. I'm not sure if you know but the Packers have Aaron Rodgers, and if you can't run the ball and keep him in the sideline for extended periods of time, he will eventually pick you apart. The Packers are among the favorites to reach the Super Bowl. To sum it up, this line doesn't make sense.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Running Back Leonard Fournette To Score Anytime (+150)

Fournette has dominated the Tampa backfield since Week 1. Miami has allowed 6 total touchdowns to opposing running backs through the first four weeks. That's tied for the second-most in the NFL. He is playing over 58 percent of the snaps and receiving over two-thirds of the touches out of the backfield. This is the first week Lenny finds the endzone.
