NFL Week 15 Parlay Bets
3-team parlay: New England Patriots (-525) vs. Cincinnati Bengals, Kansas City Chiefs (-600) vs. Denver Broncos, Seattle Seahawks (-295) vs. Carolina Panthers
As per usual, when LAFB Network says “safe”, we mean it. The safest of all the bets is the Patriots vs. the Bengals, two teams on the absolute opposite ends of the spectrum. The Bengals are the favorites to land the first overall pick despite earning their first win of the season a few weeks ago against the New York Jets. Meanwhile, despite their loss to the Chiefs, the Patriots are still firmly in place as a Super Bowl contender. Tom Brady has obviously taken a big step backwards but the Pats defense is strong enough to make up for it especially against the Bengals. Plus it never hurts when you have the other team’s sideline on tape.
The aforementioned Chiefs are coming off their biggest win of the season against the Patriots and it’s hard to see their hot streak coming to an end against the Denver Broncos. Denver has burned me several times this season and while this does have upset potential given Drew Lock’s last few breakout weeks, I don’t see them as a strong enough team to pull out the win. Ron Leary, Noah Fant, and Ja’Wuan James were all held out of practice on Wednesday and that does not bode well for their status this week.
The Seahawks are the “riskier” pick here but as they fight with the 49ers to win the NFC West, it’s hard to imagine them dropping a game against the Panthers. Kyle Allen has proven that the NFL season is a long one after going from the likely successor to Cam Newton to career backup at best. Carolina has dropped five straight games and in that span, Allen has thrown seven touchdowns and eight interceptions. Pure mediocrity. Even while being on the road, the Seahawks should walk away from this one with a win.
3-team parlay: New England Patriots (-525) vs. Cincinnati Bengals, Seattle Seahawks (-295) vs. Carolina Panthers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-190) vs. Detroit Lions
Trusting the Bucs with anything let alone winning a game as the favorite is risky. However, a story that has gone criminally undercover in the national sports media is that Tampa Bay’s offense has seemingly been revived over the past three and arguably five weeks. The lowest amount of points they’ve put up in that span has been 17 against the Saints. Since then, it’s been 28 points or higher.
The Lions meanwhile are sticking with David Blough as their starting quarterback despite being on the heel of a six-game losing streak. They played better teams like the Cowboys and Bears close but right now, they aren’t showing enough to convince me that they can pull off the win against the Bucs. The only reason this is in the riskier part of the article is because it’s probably just a matter of time until Jameis Winston falls back to Earth and that can happen in any game.
3-team parlay: New England Patriots (-525) vs. Cincinnati Bengals, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-190) vs. Detroit Lions, Buffalo Bills (+100) vs. Pittsburgh Steelers
A bettor’s favorite game is one where the line would be switched if the other team was at home. Especially when it’s two cold-weather teams going against each other so hometown advantage isn’t that big of an advantage anyway. That’s exactly what we have with the Bills vs. Steelers game. If this game were at Buffalo, the Bills definitely would be the favorites. It’s seemingly been all year that people have been waiting for the Bills good season to hit a brick wall but it hasn’t happened yet. Josh Allen has proven capable of carrying the Bills at times limited offense, but the real star of the show has been their defense. Which is why I think despite Devlin Hodges having a surprisingly good NFL debut this season, this is where the Steelers three-game winning streak likely ends. Taking an underdog is always a risk, but, especially with this one, one worth taking.
