It's crazy how quickly the NFL can humble us and turn what could have been an undefeated week to an 0-2 outing. Here's a look at my favorite NFL parlay picks for Week 3.

Parlay Pick 1
PARLAY: Tennessee Titans first half 3-way (-160) + Arizona Cardinals first half 3-way (-200) = +143
Tennessee Titans first half 3-way (-160)
Carson Wentz has both of his ankles sprained and that could mean trouble as we get closer to kickoff on Sunday for the Indianapolis Colts. They meet a Tennessee Titans team who have been struggling defensively so far, but might get a much-needed confidence boost on the defensive front, especially if Wentz does not suit up.
The Titans, on the other hand, are coming off a huge comeback victory in OT after trailing by 15 points in the first half. Derrick Henry continued to be a focal point of their offense rushing for 182 yards on 35 carries along with his three touchdowns. It's likely Henry has another big afternoon, but I couldn't touch his rushing yards total at Over 100 or -220 for him to be a touchdown scorer anytime. The Titans look very tough in this spot outright. For a better payout, take the Titans on the first half 3-way money line (meaning, they must win the first half, a tie is a loss) at -160.
Arizona Cardinals first half 3-way (-200)
Another team that should get out to a quick start is the Arizona Cardinals, who have done so in their opening two games, averaging 8.5 first quarter points and 24 first half points per game, ranking first in the NFL. What is also important is how great their defense has been playing to start games off, last week holding the Titans to only six points in the first half.
Sunday they will be up against a Jacksonville Jaguars team that has struggled to put up points averaging only seven first half points per game through the small two-game sample size. If that is too small of a sample, their struggles were prevalent last year, too, when they ranked 29th at only 8.7. Look for the Cardinals to continue their quick starts and back them on the first half 3-way money line at -200.
Parlay Pick 2
PARLAY: Devin Singletary Over 11.5 rushing attempts (-125) + Justin Herbert Over 298.5 passing yards (-115) = +236
Devin Singletary Over 11.5 rushing attempts (-125)
The Washington Football Team head out on the road for the first time this year. Their offense has struggled to put up points and their defense has also looked subpar ranking them 24th against the pass and 23rd against the run. Defensively they have surrendered 49 total points through two games and will have a hard time slowing down a Bills defense coming off a 35-0 road win against division rival Miami Dolphins last week.
Through two games, running back Devin Singletary has been great, averaging 6.4 yards per attempt through 24 carries. With Josh Allen struggling with completion percentage, and the Bills in a very favorable matchup, expect Singletary to be fed the rock. I like targeting Over his total of 11.5. (-125)
Justin Herbert Over 298.5 passing yards (-115)
One of the biggest under/over totals this week occurs when the Los Angeles Chargers travel to Kansas City to take on the Chiefs with the total set at 54.5. The Chiefs have been stellar on offense, but defensively the same cannot be said. The Chiefs' defense has looked awful thus far, allowing 32.5 points per game, ranking them 28th. Although the Chargers haven't lit up the scoreboard yet, they look to be primed for a shootout versus the Chiefs on Sunday.
The Chargers will look to establish the run early with Austin Ekeler, which could help open up passing options through the air for quarterback Justin Herbert. Herbert is completing 70.5 percent of his passes and has thrown for no less than 337 yards through the two-game sample size. I like him to go over his passing yard total of 298.5 which is set a bit low.
