The 2019 NFL season is almost over and while the playoff race isn’t exactly coming down to the wire, there are still plenty of teams fighting for their pride, coaches fighting for their jobs, and wild card hopefuls fighting to stay alive. After going 3/3 on our picks last week, there is no better place on the internet to find your way to profit off these efforts than here at The LAFB Network. So without further ado, let’s take a look at some of the best parlay bets you can place for Week 16 of the NFL season.
While parlays are always the riskiest bets you can place compared to spreads, we’ll break down the safest parlay you can place, another will make you some money but carries some risk and the riskiest but most fruitful one you can place. For this article, we will take a look at 3-team parlays based on each team’s money line with each one based on its level of risk.

3-team parlay: Baltimore Ravens (-495) vs. Cleveland Browns, Seattle Seahawks (-450) vs. Arizona Cardinals, Kansas City Chiefs (-250) vs. Chicago Bears
This week’s lines haven’t made it particularly easy to pick a home run parlay that you are almost guaranteed to make money on so these three are about as close as you’re going to get. Normally, I shy away from divisional matchups for “safe” games especially when one team is at home and can play spoiler for a team shooting for the top spot in the AFC which is the exact opportunity the Cleveland Browns have. However, as evidenced by the recent drama created by Jarvis Landry and Odell Beckham Jr, the Browns are seemingly in the middle of a full-on collapse while the Ravens continue their great run. Factoring in that Baltimore will likely be looking to avenge their 40-25 loss at the hands of the Browns earlier this season, I think Lamar Jackson will lead Baltimore to their 11th straight win this week.
The Seahawks have proven to be one of the more consistent teams this season by beating everyone they should but falling to some of the more top-tier opponents they’ve faced. Their three losses of the season have come against the Ravens, Rams, and Saints but luckily for them, the Cardinals are nowhere near any of those teams. Kyler Murray has provided Arizona with enough hope for the future but this season is clearly a bust and while I think this will be closer than most think, the Seahawks talent, combined with home-field advantage, will likely prove to be too much for the still-growing Cardinals.
As for the Chiefs, I am legitimately shocked the line is only -250. I get the Bears are at home and it is a primetime game and they are just two weeks removed from a surprising win against the Cowboys, but Kansas City seems like the overwhelmingly better team here. The Chiefs have some notable names on the injury report that are all listed as questionable but Andy Reid’s squad has proven that isn’t an issue for them over and over again this season. There is a possibility the Chiefs have their playoff seeding locked in before the game starts which might factor in how much the starters play but that would require a Texans loss against Tampa Bay which is hard to envision.
3-team parlay: Baltimore Ravens (-495) vs. Cleveland Browns, Seattle Seahawks (-450) vs. Arizona Cardinals, Denver Broncos (-330) vs. Detroit Lions
The Broncos have had the epitome of an up-and-down season but the biggest takeaway is it seems that John Elway has finally found his quarterback of the future in Drew Lock. He looked like a typical rookie against the Chiefs last Sunday but it is important to remember his great performances against the Chargers and Texans in the two weeks prior. Both of those teams have superior defenses than the Lions, who haven’t held a team to below 19 points since Week 2. The Broncos are dealing with injuries on the offensive line but even that shouldn’t be enough to boost the second-to-last Lions defense from getting scorched by the impressive rookie.
3-team parlay: Baltimore Ravens (-495) vs. Cleveland Browns, Denver Broncos (-330) vs. Detroit Lions, Green Bay Packers (+190) vs. Minnesota Vikings
It is always a big risk to bet against the Vikings when they play at home. While the Seahawks love to boast their home field advantage, Minnesota has had arguably the best in the league under the tenure of Mike Zimmer. Aaron Rodgers hasn’t thrown for more than 250 yards in six straight games so it makes sense why the Packers are underdogs here. However, Rodgers is almost always a sure bet in a big game with the division up for grabs while Kirk Cousins has yet to prove he can show up on the big stage.
To make matters worse for the Vikings, Dalvin Cook is unlikely to play against the Packers and even if he does, it’s hard to imagine he will have a bulk of the carries. The Packers defense and running game have more than made up for Rodgers’ slide so without Cook, an upset is definitely within the realm of possibility.
