It was a wild Week 1 in the NFL, as underdogs once again came through to open the season.

This weekly article is going to focus on the best parlays and teasers to bet to get in on some early week action.  For evergreen content on how to approach parlays, teasers and same-game parlays check out the introductory article in Week 1.

Most of these bets get scoffed at by serious bettors, as parlays are generally viewed as the lottery tickets of sports betting. Teasers do provide positive EV situations when crossing key numbers, but the preferred approach is to bet lines that are as sharp as possible late in the week. Simply avoiding these types of wagers altogether leaves opportunities on the table, especially in early week betting when we can pick up some line value.

We are already seeing recency bias play a role in lines correcting from preseason to what we now have for early Week 2. Depending upon how you weigh Week 1 performances, there appear to be quite a few spots to take advantage of this week.
