ANALYSIS

NFL Week 2 Parlay Picks: Building Around the Chargers and 49ers

We did the Wednesday NFL Teaser already which is a staple in any NFL bettor's weekly diet. Not the cornerstone, but certainly a staple. Basically, if we were at a steakhouse, the Wednesday teaser would be like a really good side dish. Like some kind of grilled vegetable with a twist. Or even a weird flavor mashed potato or some other starch we've never even heard of. Maybe with some type of cheese. I don't know. Just spit-balling here. The point is, that the Wednesday teaser is a very important part of the Sunday meal. Do you know what else is the important part? The appetizer. It's literally the first thing we get so it needs to be good. That's where the Thursday teaser comes in. It's something I've been doing forever and honestly, I'll never stop. All you have to do is find something you like in the Thursday game, then tie it to something on Sunday. It's glorious.

Two-Team, Six-Point NFL Teaser (-120) (Bet $120 to win $100)

*Odds available at DraftKings at time of publishing*

  • Los Angeles Chargers +10
  • San Francisco 49ers -2.5

Los Angeles Chargers +10

We lucked out with this one because there is a 0.0000% chance the Los Angeles Chargers lose this game by double digits. Like no chance. First off, they pretty much blew out the Las Vegas Raiders last week. They only won the game by five points so it didn't look so bad but it was 17-3 at the half. The Raiders got a lucky 41-yard pass play to set up a third-down touchdown to open the second half or else we would be talking about a different outcome. We all saw what happened.

As for the Chiefs, they beat up on a Cardinals team that looked like they didn't even know there was a game Sunday. For some reason, Arizona thought blitzing Patrick Mahomes was smart when it's obviously not. I highly doubt the Chargers do the same thing. Each time they played them last season, Los Angeles stayed within 10 points. Hell, they beat them once and took them to overtime the second time. In fact, the Chiefs have never beaten Justin Herbert by 10+ points. That just won't happen.\

San Francisco 49ers -2.5

In terms of the second bet, we want to find something in the 4:00 pm ET range so we can keep the winning feeling going a little longer. Always do that whenever you have a chance. Feeling like a winner is important so the longer you can do it, the better. Everyone knows that. Lucky for us, the San Francisco 49ers play at 4:05 pm ET on Sunday. I know they lost to the Chicago Bears in Week 1 but this game won't be played in a monsoon. At the end of the day, this one isn't even about the 49ers though.

The Seattle Seahawks are the first team I've ever seen get blown out and still win a game. That's crazy. It just doesn't happen much. They did all their damage in the first half when the Broncos were still getting used to playing football again. They didn't even play in the preseason. They just needed time. In the second half, Denver lost two fumbles on the one-yard line which would have not only covered their team total (26.5), but it would have also led to an easy cover. I doubt the Seahawks get this lucky again. It definitely won't happen this Sunday.
