All For One, and One For All: Our favorite NFL Week 2 parlay and teaser picks

0 Comments

Parlays and teasers are exploding in popularity for NFL bettors, who love to wager a little to win a lot. Books love them too, because they’re hard to hit. Just look at our parlay/teaser picks for Week 1.

All six of our staffers laid a goose egg on their accumulators, with plenty of close calls. But close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades, and if you know how parlays and teasers work, one wrong pick and your entire play is down the tubes.

We dust ourselves off and get back on the betting horse for our NFL Week 2 parlay and teaser picks. If you missed Week 1, here are the rules: Six guys from Covers share their favorite multi-wager plays each week, giving at least a three-game parlay or three-game teasers (standard 6-point wiggle) for full-game spreads and totals this football season. Odds used will be our Covers Line (the ultimate industry consensus odds) at 2 p.m. ET every Friday.

In the end, whoever provides the most profits will claim office superiority (which means a closer parking spot and the good toilet paper, not that thin stuff) and a case of beer (a dozen for those who aren’t cool or think they can get away with just a sixer).

Now on to the Week 2 picks!

ANDREW CALEY, SENIOR PUBLISHING EDITOR

THREE-TEAM TEASER (+160)

Dallas Pick’em
Tennessee +2.5
Kansas City-Oakland Over 47.5

The Cowboys should be favored by more like a TD. This is an overreaction to one good half of football from Washington. No Andrew Luck. Titans went 2-0 vs the Colts with Jacoby Brissett at QB in 2017. The Chiefs dropped 40 on the Jags D. What are the Raiders gonna do?

LAST WEEK:

Atlanta +10 ❌
Kansas City +2.5 ✅
New England +0.5 ✅

ROB HANSEN, ALERTS/SOCIAL MEDIA EDITOR

THREE-TEAM TEASER (+160)

N.Y. Giants +8
Kansas City -1
Cleveland -0.5

I love moving the Giants through a few key numbers at home against a mediocre Bills team. For the other two games, the Chiefs will not lose to the Raiders (I don’t care where the game is being played) and the Browns looked awful in Week 1 but should be able to handle Trevor Siemian and the Jets on Monday night.

LAST WEEK: 

Baltimore -0.5 ✅
Philadelphia -4 ✅
Pittsburgh +11.5 ❌

BRANDON DUBREUIL, HOST OF PROP SHOP PODCAST

THREE-TEAM TEASER (+160)

Tennessee +2.5
Green Bay +3.5
Pittsburgh +2.5

Strategy is pretty simple here: I’m taking three home faves and turning them into dogs, as I believe all three have a solid chance of winning outright.

LAST WEEK:

San Francisco-Tampa Bay Over 45 ✅
Baltimore -0.5 ✅
Seattle -3.5 ❌

JASON LOGAN, SENIOR INDUSTRY ANALYST

THREE-TEAM PARLAY (+600)

Kansas City -1
San Francisco-Cincinnati Over 40
Minnesota-Green Bay Over 37

The Chiefs should be a given and I’m expecting more offense from the other two games. Plus, you get to cheer for points, which is fun.

LAST WEEK: 

L.A. Rams-Carolina Under 50 ❌
Baltimore -6.5 ✅
Cincinnati +9.5 ✅

ROHIT PONNAIYA, PUBLISHING EDITOR

THREE-TEAM TEASER (+160)

New Orleans-L.A. Rams Over 46
Kansas City -1
Cleveland -0.5

The Saints and Rams have two of the most explosive offenses in the league and lived up to that billing last week. There’s no way Oakland is winning two straight games especially against a Super Bowl contender like the Chiefs. The Browns will look to bounce back from a Week 1 loss as they take on Jets team that couldn’t beat the Bills last week and now have Trevor Siemian at QB. Yikes!

LAST WEEK:

San Francisco-Tampa Bay Over 45 ✅
Houston-New Orleans Over 47 ✅
Denver +4 ❌

PATRICK EVERSON, SENIOR WRITER LAS VEGAS

THREE-TEAM PARLAY (+600)

Kansas City -7
Tennessee -3.5
Washington +6

Chiefs looked great in Week 1, opened -8.5 vs Raiders, now -7. I’ll lay seven, sure. Titans are better than we thought, so I’ll lay -3.5 at home versus Colts. The Redskins with parlay-busting Week 1 road cover. I’ll take +6 at home versus Cowboys.

LAST WEEK:

Carolina +1.5 ❌
Kansas City -3.5 ✅
L.A. Chargers -6.5 ❌
