NFL Parlay of the weekend
NFL 2023 | Week 3

The first two weeks of the NFL season has had no shortage of action and drama, and we don’t expect this Sunday to be any different. Our experts have carefully gone through each game for Week 3 to build a parlay to help you win big at your favorite NFL betting sites.

Below we will share their parlay of the weekend, giving you the insights and odds, you need end the weekend on a winning note.

Los Angeles Chargers vs Minnesota Vikings Best Bet 

Over 53.5 Points | -118 FanDuel Sportsbook

While we have a lot of great matchups to look forward to this weekend, none will be more exciting than this one. Both teams have started 0-2, but it hasn’t been from a lack of offense. The Chargers have gained the fourth most yards (775 Yards) in the league through two weeks, while the Vikings were close behind in eighth (743 yards).

Conversely, both defenses have had some major struggles. LA has allowed the third most points in the NFL (63 PA), while Minnesota has allowed the eighth most (54 PA). 

Even if Chargers running back Austin Ekeler doesn’t play, we think Herbert and their pass attack will be good enough to compensate against a soft Vikings defense. 

Atlanta Falcons vs Detroit Lions Best Bet 

Desmond Ridder Over 13.5 Rush Yards (-120) | DraftKings Sportsbook

This is our favorite leg of the parlay, as Ridder showed how effective he can be rushing the ball last week, and it helped lead them to a comeback win of the Packers. The 24-year-old finished the game with 39 yads on ten carriers (3.9 YPC) along with a touchdown. Given that success, you can count on the Falcons use Ridder’s legs more in Week 3.

While the Lions defense has done well against opposing running backs, they allowed Geno Smith to rush for 20 yards on three attempts last weekend. That came a week after they let Patrick Mahomes rush for 45 yards. This line is set way too low, and we are going to capitalize on it this weekend.

Carolina Panthers vs Seattle Seahawks Best Bet  

Over 42 (-110) | BetMGM Sportsbook

While the Patriots have started 0-2, Mac Jones has looked solid through the first two weeks. He has 547 yards and four touchdowns, while adding another 40 yards on the ground. He struggled a bit against an improved Miami secondary but running back Rhamondre Stevenson looked far better after a brutal opening game. He finished with 50 rushing yards and a touchdown, and he will improve on that against a familiar foe.  

The Jets have a fantastic defense, but their offense is going to force them to stay on the field. In their blowout loss in Dallas last week, the Jets defense spent over 42 minutes on the field. It wore them down, and they surrendered 30 points and 382 yards as a result.

When the Patriots went to MetLife Stadium last season, they won 22-17 behind 143 combined yards from Stevenson. Expect to see a similar situation on Sunday.
