Week 1 NFL Betting Parlay – Bengals vs. Bears, Eagles vs. Redskins

NFL Parlay of the Week

The 2013 NFL regular season gets underway this week which presents the perfect opportunity to take advantage of a few bad lines with a two-team parlay that can add an instant boost to the bankroll.

Here are my top two plays for Week 1 in the NFL based on lines provided by


Game 1 – Cincinnati Bengals vs. Chicago Bears

Pointspread: Chicago -3
Total Line: 41.5
ATS Matchup Stats | NFL Gambling Insight!

For the past two seasons Cincinnati continued to live in the shadows of Baltimore and Pittsburgh in the AFC North, but still managed to work its way into the playoffs as a wildcard team.

The tide is about to change in this division as the Bengals are more than ready to ascend to the top of the heap against a couple of former heavyweights that are starting to show their age.


Chicago went 10-6 last season but still decided to make a change at the top by naming offensive guru Marc Trestman as its new head coach. It is a bold gamble considering that most of his success as a coach came north of the border in the CFL.

The thought here is that Trestman will be able to get the most out of quarterback Jay Cutler through an offensive scheme that finally fits his skill set.

The big question for the Bears is how their defense will react to the loss of long-time leader Brian Urlacher.

The Bengals are built to win right out of the gate with the likes of Andy Dalton throwing the ball to AJ Green complementing a defense that was ranked sixth In the NFL last year.

It could take the Bears a couple of weeks to come together on both sides of the ball making this a perfect opportunity jump all over a road underdog that wins the game straight-up. [soliloquy id=”82219″]

Game 2- Philadelphia Eagles vs. Washington Redskins

Pointspread: Washington -3
Total Line: 51.5
ATS Matchup Stats | NFL Gambling Insight!

There has been a changing of the guard in Philadelphia as well with Chip Kelly taking over for Andy Reid as head coach. Much has been made about Kelly bringing his fast-paced, up tempo style of play from the collegiate level to the pros.

The one thing in his favor in this season opener is the element of surprise as nobody knows what to expect on Monday night.

Robert Griffin III burst onto the scene as a rookie last season to lead Washington to its first playoff appearance since 2007 with his electrifying play both throwing and running the ball.

This past offseason all the talk has centered on his ability to come back from major knee surgery and from all indications he is ready to pick up where he left off under the prime time lights of Monday Night Football.

The one thing to expect from this classic NFC East showdown is the ability for both teams to put points on the board.

The Eagles are still loaded with playmakers on offense with a healthy LeSean McCoy and DeSean Jackson leading the way and RG III will come up with his fair share of big plays against a very porous Philadelphia defense.

All this adds up to a gift on the OVER play in this game to round-out the back-end of this parlay.
