The NFL is back, and that means parlays are in full effect. Our NFL parlays are the best on the internet, and they start on Sunday. The slate is loaded with outstanding games, and we cannot wait to get started.
Here is our winning three-team parlay for the first Sunday of professional football.
Arizona Cardinals vs. Tennessee Titans Over 52 Points (-110)
The Cardinals and Titans were meant to put up massive points on the scoreboard. This game has a shootout written all over it thanks to Kyler Murray, Julio Jones, and the countless number of explosive players in this game.
The Cardinals have one of the fastest scoring offenses in football. Murray is focused on honing his throwing ability this season. Nevertheless, we know Murray is going to run the ball, and this is where the team excels.
Alongside Murray will be Chase Edmonds and James Connor to support the running game. Murray can still deliver strikes down the field, and Kliff Kingsbury plans on throwing the ball more in 2021.
The Cardinals had a top ten offense while running the ball 44% of the time. With more passing, Arizona will help the game go over 52 points. The Titans have playmakers all over the field, including Julio Jones and A.J. Brown.
If Tennessee chooses to run the ball, they can give it to Derrick Henry, one of the league’s best backs. This is the largest over on the slate, but do not be alarmed because these two offenses were not built for under.
Denver Broncos vs. New York Giants Under 42.5 Points (-110)
While the Cardinals and Titans will be scoring many points, the Broncos and Giants will barely be lighting up the scoreboard. This is the lowest total on the week one slate, and for a good reason.
The Broncos will have Teddy Bridgewater under center in the game. Bridgewater is serviceable, but he is not a prolific passer. He only threw for over 300 yards once last season. In Carolina, he has much better receivers than in Denver.
The Giants have some skilled players, but Daniel Jones will have no time in the pocket. New York only put Jones under center once in the preseason because they knew they had a serious protection problem.
The Patriots’ front seven destroyed the Giants’ starting offensive line in the final game of the preseason. New York had two weeks to clean up their poor protection, but they are still considered bad until proven otherwise.
The Giants went under in 13 of 16 games last season, and they went under in every game as an underdog. Denver accumulated more overs, but this was thanks to their poor defense.
The under of 42.5 is a lock on Sunday.
Green Bay Packers -3.5 (-110) vs. New Orleans Saints
Because of the recent hurricane in New Orleans, this game will be played at a neutral site in Jacksonville. This does not affect my belief that the Packers will cover with ease.
The heat may play a small factor in the game, but the Packers will be ready for the humidity in Jacksonville. Jameis Winston will be starting at quarterback for the Saints. Winston is talented, but he turns the ball over frequently.
Backing up Drew Brees may have been good for the quarterback, but I still have many doubts about Winston. The Packers are in a completely different spot at the quarterback position.
Aaron Rodgers will be back in Green Bay leading the charge. If he was hosting Jeopardy, I might be more inclined to bet the Saints. Rodgers’ command of the huddle and success with the Packers gives me the belief they will cover with ease.
There will be growing pains following the Drew Brees era, and it will be apparent on Sunday.
If you place $100 on this parlay, the combined odds would be +595. A $100 wager would pay out $695.79.
