Best Betting Picks to Place an NFL Parlay in Week 5

Written by on October 2, 2017

This has been one of the strangest starts to a season that I can ever remember, with the supposed top teams struggling to win, and only a single team, the Kansas City Chiefs, still remaining unbeaten after 3 games. That’s why hitting an NFL Parlay has become a complicated task, but don’t worry, that’s why we are here. We are going to take an early look at Week 5 to see if we can put together a few parlay tickets, but keep in mind that NFL spreads may change as the week progresses, so check back into MyBookie regularly for updated lines and other information.

Top NFL Betting Picks & Prediction for Week 5

NFL Week 5 SU Parlay

Let’s start off our Straight Up parlay by looking at the Thursday night game, which features the 2-2 Patriots on the road at the 2-1 Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Tom Brady had been at his brilliant best for the Patriots, but he is being forced to play big to cover for an inferior defense. More of the same on Thursday, and a win for the Bucs. For the first half of the Sunday night game, the Indianapolis Colts hung in there with the Seattle Seahawks. Mistakes in the second half did them in, making the final score look a little more lopsided than the game actually was. I like the Colts to bounce back against the 49ers this weekend. While still not playing that great offensively, the Pittsburgh Steelers took control of the AFC North with a big 26-9 win over the Ravens in Week 4. They will be home to a Jacksonville Jaguars team that has been a bit Jekyll and Hyde so far. Another win for the Steelers and a good to pick to an NFL Parlay.

NFL Week 5 ATS Parlay

The Cincinnati Bengals got their first win of the season in a dominating performance against the Cleveland Browns, which is no reason to get carried away. They are a 3-point home favorite against the surprising Buffalo Bills this weekend, and I like the Bills to win as a road underdog and to be on you NFL Parlay bet. The Arizona Cardinals have somehow managed to get to 2-2 despite being one of the lowest scoring teams in the NFL. They will go against one of the top scorers this weekend, and I like the Philadelphia Eagles to cover as a 6 ½ point favorite. The Cardinals are not a good pick for an NFL Parlay in Week 5.   It has proven to be another season of futility thus far for the Cleveland Browns, yet they come into this weekend as a 2-point favorite over a New York Jets team that is a surprising 2-2. Let’s go with the Jets to win and get over .500. Hard to believe I am saying that out loud, but include them in your NFL Parlay ticket.

Latest NFL ATS Betting Trends

  • Buffalo is 11-3 ATS in its last 14 games when playing Cincinnati
  • Cincinnati is 2-5 ATS in its last 7 games at home
  • Arizona is 2-6 ATS in its last 8 games on the road
  • Philadelphia is 0-4-1 ATS in its last 5 games when playing Arizona
  • NY Jets is 4-1 ATS in its last 5 games when playing Cleveland
  • Cleveland is 2-11-1 ATS in its last 14 games

NFL Week 5 O/U Parlay

One of the best games on the schedule for Week 6 is the one that sees the Green Bay Packers and Dallas Cowboys go head to head. The point total for this one is set at 52 ½, and I would not be surprised to see the OVER hit here. The Jets and Browns are not exactly lighting things up offensively, so we can perhaps expect a low-scoring game filled with FG attempts. The point total of 39 is low, but if any two teams can combine to go UNDER, it would almost certainly be these two. Perhaps more surprising than the fact that the Patriots are 2-2 through the first 4 weeks of the season is their performance on defense. They are being forced into shootouts because of those defensive frailties, which is why I think their game versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers goes OVER the 54 points.

Latest NFL O/U Betting Trends

  • The total has gone OVER in 14 of Green Bay’s last 20 games when playing Dallas
  • Total has gone OVER in 4 of Dallas’s last 6 games at home
