We did not have a Thursday night game this week, but we will have a pair of games on Saturday with playoff implications — Chiefs vs. Raiders and Titans vs. Jaguars. Between Saturday’s games and a full slate on Sunday, bettors can look forward to a weekend full of NFL parlay bets and same-game parlay bets!

Of course, you have to be aware of the games with no playoff implications at this time of year. With so many games potentially impacting the postseason, the action should be intense in several. Here are a few of our favorite NFL parlay picks for Week 14, including a couple of same-game parlay bets.

NFL Parlay Picks: Week 18

This week, we are featuring odds from FanDuel, but you should always compare the odds at other top sports betting apps.

Let’s take a look at a few NFL parlays and NFL same-game parlays:

NFL Parlay No. 1: Saturday’s Games

  • Raiders +9.5 (-118)
  • Titans +6.5 (-112)
  • Parlay Odds: +249

The Chiefs need to win this game to lock up the No. 1 seed and a bye in the first week of the playoffs. However, they have not been a good team against the spread (ATS) this season, going 5-10-1. In games where the spread was -8 or more, they were 2-3-1. The Raiders have not been a great team ATS (8-8), but they were 5-2 ATS at home.

If Jarrett Stidham can have another solid game like last week, the Raiders will keep this one within a touchdown.

As for the Titans, the Jags have all the momentum, but the Titans’ defense has a lot of healthy playmakers returning to action this week. Derrick Henry has a good track record against the Jags and should take some pressure off Joshua Dobbs, who had a decent passing day against a tough Dallas defense in his first start.

A $100 bet would result in a $349 payday, your stake plus $249 in winnings.

NFL Same-Game Parlay No. 1: Chiefs vs. Raiders

  • Raiders +9.5 (-118)
  • Jarrett Stidham, 275+ alternate passing yards (+225)
  • Davante Adams, 80+ receiving yards (+100)
  • Same-Game Parlay odds: +552

Kansas City has not been a good team ATS, especially when favored by 8+ points. If Stidham can play like he did last week against an excellent 49ers defense, the Raiders will keep this one relatively close. Going for 275+ yards is a bit aggressive, but the Chiefs’ secondary is not strong. It ranks No. 19 in passing yards allowed, but teams have had a lot of success throwing on the Chiefs.

Of course, it helps that they have to catch up and stay in the game.

Davante Adams appeared to have a good connection with Stidham against the 49ers; it would be surprising if he did not have a similar day against Kansas City’s lackluster secondary.

A $100 bet would result in a $652 payday, your stake plus $552 in winnings.

NFL Parlay No. 2: Sunday’s Games

  • Texans +2.5 (+126)
  • Bills -7 (-110)
  • Parlay Odds: +331

Houston has played well in recent weeks, except for last week’s dreadful outing against the surging Jags. On the other hand, Indianapolis has been redefining what it means to be on the struggle bus. With no Jonathan Taylor and Sam Ehlinger starting at quarterback, they will probably struggle again.

Is there a team that will be more motivated to win this week than the Buffalo Bills? No. New England is a decent team, but they are catching the Bills at the wrong time.

A $100 bet would result in a $431 payday, your stake plus $331 in winnings.

NFL Parlay No. 3

  • Buccaneers +4.5 (+166)
  • Jets +3 (+144)
  • Parlay Odds: +549

Tampa Bay has nothing to gain by beating the Falcons, but it appears they intend to play everyone anyway. There is some logic to doing so since the offense finally clicked last week; it would be good to see the offense click again. Assuming they do play their starters, the Bucs should win this game.

The Dolphins are going with Skylar Thompson at quarterback this week. Thompson had a dreadful outing against the Jets back in Week 5, and there is no reason to believe he’ll be much better this time. As for the Jets, while Joe Flacco is not the same guy he once was, his experience should give him and the Jets an edge.

NFL Same-Game Parlay No. 2: Ravens vs. Bengals

  • Bengals -9.5 (-118)
  • Under 39.5 (-110)
  • Same Game Parlay Odds: +259

Cincinnati still has something to play for, so look for them to keep their starters on the field until the game is well in hand. With Lamar Jackson on the bench, the Bengals’ defense has a definite edge over the Ravens’ offense. The Bengals have been the best team in the NFL ATS this season at 12-3. While asking them to cover a 9.5-point spread is a lot, they’ll make it 13-3 this week.

Both defenses have been stingy this season, making it unlikely the score gets out of hand.

A $100 wager would result in a $359 payday, your stake plus $259 in winnings.
