2019 NFL Week 7 Parlay Betting Picks
San Francisco (5-0) at Washington (1-5)
- When: Sunday, October 20, 2019 at 1:00 PM ET
- Where: FedEx Field, Landover, Maryland
- TV: FOX
- NFL Week 7 Odds: San Francisco -10 / Total: 41.5
San Francisco has been one of the most pleasant surprises in the entire league so far this season. Not only are the Niners an unblemished 5-0 coming into this contest, but Frisco is ranked a stellar third in scoring (29.4 ppg) and even more impressive second in points allowed (12.8 ppg). San Francisco has shut down Cleveland the L.A. Rams the last two weeks while giving up just 10 combined points to along the way.
Washington got their first win of the season last weekend, but they narrowly got past the completely awful Miami Dolphins 17-16 in order to get their first victory. Unfortunately, the Skins are ranked an identical 25th in scoring (15.0 ppg) and points allowed (27.8 ppg) and they were held to just 10 combined points in their previous two games before beating the Fins.
San Francisco looks elite on both sides of the ball while Washington is borderline incompetent on offense and defense. I know the Skins have a new head coach in interim leader Bill Callahan, but the fact of the matter is that they just don’t have the talent it takes to beat a San Francisco team that is now brimming with talent on both sides of the ball.
The Niners are 4-1 ATS in their last five road games against a team with a losing home record while Washington has gone 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games against their NFC counterparts and 0-5 ATS in their last five home games. Don’t think twice about the Niners covering the chalk as a double-digit road fave!
Pick: San Francisco 35 Washington 7
New Orleans (5-1) at Chicago (3-2)
- When: Sunday, October 20, 2019 at 4:25 PM ET
- Where: Soldier Field, Chicago, Illinois
- TV: FOX
- NFL Week 7 Odds: Chicago -3 / Total: 38.5
The Bears will be well-rested in this matchup after getting a bye this past weekend, but Chicago didn’t look good at all in their 24-21 upset road loss at Oakland two weeks ago. New Orleans moved to a perfect 4-0 under veteran signal-caller Teddy Bridgewater since Drew Brees went down with an injury. The Saints took down the Jacksonville Jaguars 13-6 this past weekend in a hard-fought affair while holding an opponent to 10 points or less for the second time in their last three games.
While Chicago has an elite defense that limits the opposition to just 13.8 points per game to rank third in points allowed, the Bears are struggling offensively and are ranked a dismal 27th in scoring (17.4 ppg). More importantly, quarterback Mitch Trubisky looks like he’s going to flame out after being picked second overall in 2017. Not only that, but I contend, that the Bears made a foolish move by parting ways with underrated running back Jordan Howard after he rushed for over 3,00 yards in his first three seasons in the league. While the Saints are putting up 30 points per game like they almost always do, they are the more complete team on both sides of the ball and they definitely have the better quarterback and head coach in this matchup.
New Orleans is a bankroll-boosting 22-8 ATS in their last 30 road games while Chicago has gone 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games following a bye week. With the Saints also going 4-0-1 ATS in the last five meetings against the Bears, I think the handwriting is on the wall.
Pick: New Orleans 21 Chicago 17
Philadelphia (3-3) at Dallas (3-3) at 8:20 PM ET
- When: Sunday, October 20, 2019 at 8:20 PM ET
- Where: AT&T Stadium, Arlington, Texas
- TV: NBC
- NFL Week 7 Odds: Dallas -3 / Total: 49.5
Philadelphia had their two-game winning streak snapped in their humbling 38-20 road loss against Minnesota on Sunday, but Dallas dropped their third straight by falling to the previously winless New York Jets 24-22. While the Cowboys are ranked a solid 10th in scoring (25.5 ppg) and even more impressive eighth in points allowed (19.0 ppg), Dallas just looks out of sync on both sides of the ball.
While Philly got embarrassed against the Vikings the last time out, the Bird still rank an encouraging ninth in scoring (26.8 ppg), even though their defense has clearly seen better days in ranking 29th against the pass (280.2 ypg) and 23rd in points allowed (24.8 ppg).
Sure, the Eagles were on the wrong end of a humbling loss to Minnesota this past weekend, but Dallas has lost three straight and got completely embarrassed by the lowly Jets on Sunday. The Boys might be at home in this Week 7 NFC East divisional showdown, but they are absolutely reeling and things don’t look good right now for Dallas at all.
While Dallas has won three straight against Philadelphia, this time around I believe the Birds are the pick to not only cover the chalk, but to do so by winning outright. The road team in this NFC East rivalry has gone 11-4 ATS in the last 15 meetings. Philadelphia is 5-2 ATS in their last seven road games while Dallas has gone an uninspiring 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games after allowing more than 350 total yards in their previous game. The Eagles have the edge at quarterback and head coach and I’m going with Philly for the outright road win!
Pick: Philadelphia 27 Dallas 23
