The Bills-Patriots game on Thursday night wasn’t exactly a thriller, but bettors that took the Bills walked away pretty happy. With that game in the books, it is time to look at the remaining games in Week 13 and examine a few NFL parlay bets and same-game parlay bets.
Parlays come with substantial risks but can also lead to significant rewards.

NFL Parlay Picks: Week 13
Let’s go over a few options:
NFL Parlay No. 1
- Titans: +4.5 (-110)
- Saints-Buccaneers: Under 40.5 pts (-110)
- Parlay Odds: +264
Tennessee has lost their last two, but the Titans are 5-1 against the spread on the road this season. While the Philly defense is solid, it is unlikely Derrick Henry will get held in check for a third consecutive week. The Titans may not win, but they’ll keep it within a field goal. The Eagles are 1-3 ATS in their last four games but 5-1 when playing at home this season.
The Buccaneers and Saints have both struggled to be productive on the offensive side of the ball this season while still managing to play solid defense (most of the time). New Orleans has gone under their total six time this season and in three of their last four games; Tampa Bay has gone under in nine of 11 games. When these two teams met back in Week 2, the total was 43.4 points and the final score was 20-10, Tampa Bay.
A $100 wager will result in a $364 payday, your stake plus $264 in winnings.
NFL Parlay No. 2
- Trevor Lawrence: Over 252.5 passing yards (-115)
- Commanders-Giants: Under 40.5 pts (-110)
- Parlay Odds: +256
Lawrence has played well the last couple of weeks and faced a Lions defense giving up 259.9 yards per game this season. As for the Commanders-Giants game, both offenses are more efficient than productive, and both defenses are formidable. The winner will probably be whoever has the best day in the red zone, but don’t look for either team to get there often in this one.
A $100 wager will result in a $356 payday, your stake plus $256 in winnings.
NFL Same Game Parlay No. 1: A 3-Leg SGP Featuring Colts-Cowboys
- Dak Prescott: Under 274.5 passing yards -205
- Matt Ryan: 220+ passing yards +100
- Under 24.5 pts in the first half: -200
- Same-Game Parlay Odds: +400
Dallas has been leaning on their defense and run game this season. While Prescott has thrown for 250+ in his last four games, he’ll be facing a tough Colts pass defense that’s giving up less than 200 yards per game this season. He may still throw for 250+, but don’t count on him going over 274.5 yards.
On the other hand, Ryan has been on the struggle bus this season. He’ll likely be on it once again versus the Cowboys defense. However, he has beefed up his stats in several games during garbage time, and Dallas is infamous for taking their metaphorical foot off the gas and letting teams produce late in games (195+ yards may be a better number, but the odds are -195).
Neither team has been putting up a lot of points in the first half this season and assuming both defenses show up, that will be true this week as well.
A $100 wager will result in a $500 payday, your stake plus $400 in winnings.
NFL Same-Game Parlay No. 2
- Bengals: +1.5 (+100)
- Patrick Mahomes: Over 319.5 passing yards (+110)
- Over 27.5 pts in the first half: (+110)
- Same-Game Parlay Odds: +500
The Chiefs are on a roll with wins in their last five games, but the Bengals had their number last season, beating them in the regular season and the AFC Championship. Mahomes and the Chiefs are playing great football right now, but so are the Bengals. Look for Cincinnati to keep this one close whether or not Ja’Marr Chase plays.
Take them to win outright at +110, and the parlay odds go up to +550.
Kansas City is trying to develop a run game, but the Chiefs know they must ride Mahomes and his arm to victory. While the Bengals defense has been tough of late, Mahomes has thrown for 320+ yards in his last six games. He’ll make it seven in a row this week.
They combined for 27.5+ points in the first half in both games last season. With how both offenses are playing of late, there is no reason to think that will not happen again.
