The Best NFL Parlay Bets for Week 8
The Games and the Parlay:
-430 SAINTS VS CARDINALS
-600 RAMS VS BENGALS
-270 SEAHAWKS VS FALCONS
The Saints are rolling right now and have won five in a row thanks in part to QB Teddy Bridgewater. Bridgewater has nine touchdowns against just two interceptions and is a master of controlling a game. Plus, backup and utility knife Taysom Hill is a guy who can really throw the Cardinals for a loop since he does a little bit of everything. Hill has two receiving TDs and is averaging 11.6 yards per carry. Real WR Michael Thomas has 62 receptions and leads the league in receiving yards.
The Cards have won three in a row, but are on the road for the second straight week and are just 29th in the league in total yards against. The Saints defense is 6th in the NFL in total yards against and will shutdown rookie QB Tyler Murray from both passing and rushing with any success.
The Rams take on the 0-7 Bengals in London. Los Angeles got back on track beating the hapless Falcons by 27 and should do the same to Cincinnati. The Bengals are 27th in total offense while they are dead last in total yards against (giving up 431 yards per game). QB Jared Goff looked much better last week as he had three total touchdowns in Atlanta and this game looks to be a mismatch from the outset. The Rams will just run it up in front of the London faithful. If you think this game is going to be close, chew on this; the Rams have scored 76 more points than the Bengals through Week 7.
The Seahawks and QB Russell Wilson had a subpar game last week in a rare double-digit loss at home against the Ravens. Unless Lamar Jackson gets traded to Atlanta, the Seattle defense will not have to worry about a rushing quarterback that this week. The Falcons are 28th versus the pass and are 29th in the league running the ball; that is a recipe for disaster against a team that needs a bounceback win like the Seahawks. Russell Wilson is a must start if you have him in fantasy because he is going to light up the Falcons soft defense like a Christmas tree. The Falcons have given up 124 points in their last three games combined so you can all but pencil in Seattle for a high scoring victory.
