If you’ve bet on football for a while, you know that parlay bets can provide some pretty good bang for your buck if you can string a couple of wins together on the same ticket. However, while betting one game is lower risk, it’s also a lower reward.
NFL parlay bets aren’t for the faint of heart, but if you’re confident on a few different games, packaging them together can produce a nice payday. There’s an opportunity every week to hit it big. So let’s look at three exciting parlays for Week 11.
Patriots (-6) at Falcons, Colts at Bills (-7)
Combining these two games against the spread will produce a healthy +264 return. It’s hard not to like the Patriots this week after how they’ve been playing. The Pats are second in the NFL in defensive points allowed (17.7 per game) and have surrendered just 344.7 total yards on average to opposing teams.
Rookie first-round pick Mac Jones is looking great, and it seems New England’s winning culture has rubbed off on him in a hurry. Unfortunately, the Falcons embody inconsistency and are coming off a laughable 43-3 loss to the Cowboys.
Meanwhile, the Bills have found their winning ways again after a decimation of the Jets. Josh Allen averaged an incredible 17.4 yards per completion on route to a 45-17 win. Unfortunately, the Colts still haven’t beat a team with a winning record this season, and that won’t change this week.
Packers (-2.5) at Vikings, Saints at Eagles (-1.5)
The Packers handed Russell Wilson the first shutout of his career on Sunday in a game where they didn’t play close to their best football. QB Aaron Rodgers will have practiced this week before facing the Vikes, and even without running back Aaron Jones (knee), the Pack should roll.
The unreliable Vikings are coming off a surprising win in L.A. vs. the Chargers, which means they’re due for a flop this week. On the other hand, the Packers are 9-1 against the spread this year. So I’m banking on that to improve.
Don’t look now, but the sneaky Eagles are making waves. In the last three weeks (which includes two wins), the Eagles are first in points per drive (3.23) and first in touchdowns per drive (34.6%). They’ve finally started to run the ball, and it appears to be paying off. Philly is just one game off of the playoff pace in the NFC, and a home win on Sunday will go a long way in improving their chances.
Bengals (-1) at Raiders, Cowboys (+2) at Chiefs
It appears that all the turmoil the Raiders have been through this season is finally starting to take its toll. After a disappointing loss to the Giants in Week 9, it was expected that the Silver and Black would bounce back in a monumentally critical AFC West showdown at home against the Chiefs on Sunday night. But, instead, they completely flopped.
They had no energy, no fight, and were the first team in a long time to make Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs look good. I like the Bengals off a bye week to pounce on the wounded animal that is the Raiders right now.
On the other hand, the Chiefs looked great. They finally decided to take what the defense gave them and piled up the yardage on some long drives all night long. Unfortunately for Kansas City fans, they’re in for a reality check when the Cowboys come to town this week.
The Cowboys are an impressive 8-1 against the spread, while the Chiefs are just 3-7. In addition, Dallas has the number one offense in the NFL and a defense that has allowed just 21.7 points per game. Therefore, I believe that the best bet is to take the ‘Boys with the points.
Make More With Parlay Bets
It’s fun to bet on two games for parlay bets, but it gets even more exciting if you’re adventurous enough to add a third or a fourth. Then, the odds can multiply quickly to provide some enticing returns.
