We finally got an entertaining game on Thursday Night Football, courtesy of the Arizona Cardinals (and DeAndre Hopkins) and the New Orleans Saints. As for the rest of the Week 7 slate, only one game features two teams with a winning record, but there are plenty of markets for bettors to take advantage of and create NFL parlay bets with.
Of course, when it comes to parlays, the risk factor increases exponentially, but so does the reward. But when it comes to parlays, it is best to exercise caution. Here are a few of our favorite NFL parlay picks for Week 7, including a couple of same-game parlay bets.
NFL Parlay Picks: Week 7 (Odds via FanDuel)
Parlays are a lot of fun if you take the right approach. The house will always have the edge, so don’t get greedy and make big wagers on multi-leg NFL parlays. It’s more likely you’ll lose your money rather than cash in on a massive payday. So, keep the number of legs small and your wagers relatively small as well.
Let’s go over a few options:
NFL Parlay No. 1: A 2-Leg Jets vs. Broncos Same-Game Parlay
- First half total: 19.5 points (-125)
- Jets to win: (-105)
- Parlay odds: +240
The Broncos average a league-worst 15.2 points a game, but their defense is third-best in the NFL, allowing just 16.5. The Jets’ offense has not been terrible, but with Zach Wilson still figuring things out, it may be wise not to expect too much from him. But with a solid defense leading the way, look for the Jets to win a low-scoring contest.
A $100 wager will result in a $340 payday, your stake plus $240 in winnings.
NFL Parlay No. 2: A 3-Leg Player Props Parlay
- Tom Brady: Over 263.5 yards passing (-115)
- Matt Ryan: Over 251.5 yards passing (-115)
- Dak Prescott: Over 257.5 yards passing (-115)
- Parlay odds: +553
Tampa Bay can’t seem to run the ball to save their collective lives, but if they can give Tom Brady a little time, he can pick any defense apart. He’ll bounce back after a lackluster outing last weekend.
The offensive outlook may change a little for the Colts since Jonathan Taylor is expected to return but with how the game went last week against the Jags, it looks like Matt Ryan may have figured out how to make the passing game go. It certainly helps that the Titans’ defense is giving up 287.6 passing yards per game.
Dallas has been getting the job done with defense and the run game the last few weeks. But with Dak Prescott coming back against an opponent giving up 261 yards a game through the air, you have to think he’ll flex his muscles a little and throw the ball around.
A $100 wager will result in a $653 payday, your stake plus $553 in winnings.
NFL Parlay No. 3:
- Travis Etienne: Over 54.5 rushing yards (+110)
- Total: Under 43.5 points (-110)
- Daniel Jones: Under 199.5 (-120)
- Parlay odds: +500
The Jaguars gave Etienne double-digit carries the last two weeks, which paid off with 71- and 86-yard days. With the Giants struggling to defend against the run this season, Etienne should get a chance to shine.
Neither offense is terrible, but they are also far from great. Their defenses, on the other hand, are pretty good. Both are allowing less than 20-points a game this season, and it would not be shocking if both followed suit on Sunday.
Jones has had one game with 200+ passing yards this season. While the Jags’ passing defense is not exceptional, it is not terrible. But the Giants will rely more on their defense and Saquon Barkley than whatever passing game Daniels can muster.
A $100 wager will result in a $600 payday, your stake plus $500 in winnings.
