Once we are done with all the games this weekend, we will officially be two-thirds of the way through the season. This is information that should be enough to induce a certain level of panic in the teams that will be sitting below the playoff line heading into Week 13. Yes, there will still be time for teams to get hot and get in, but as the weeks roll on, the margin for error begins to shrink quite dramatically. The good news for the teams currently sitting below the line is that the races in both conferences are tight, so a nice run of form now could mean the difference between playing beyond the end of the regular season and watching the playoffs at home. We have sorted through all the big games this week to come up with a trio of parlay picks. Let’s get to it so you can bet against the NFL odds.
2021 NFL Season Week 12 Parlay Picks to Bet On
NFL Week 12 SU Parlay – Falcons, Panthers, Vikings
It’s never a bad idea to play any team facing the Jacksonville Jaguars this season, but given that Atlanta has managed just 3 points in their last 3 games gives a little cause for concern. They have won 4 of their last 5 versus the Jags, though, so let’s take Atlanta.
The immediate boost that the Carolina Panthers got from getting Cam Newton back ended with a loss to Washington last weekend. I think he steps up again this weekend, though, which is why I am on Carolina to beat Miami.
The last couple of weeks have seen huge victories for the Minnesota Vikings, and while their Week 12 game versus the 49ers looks like a tough proposition, Minnesota has won 6 of their last 9 versus San Francisco.
NFL Week 12 ATS Parlay – Bills (-4 ½), Eagles (-3), Chargers (-2 ½)
The Buffalo Bills and New Orleans Saints come into this weekend under some pressure, with both not playing well at the moment. The Bills have been a fantastic pick against the spread, going 13-6-1 in their last 20 games.
The Philadelphia Eagles are suddenly hot and have won 3 of their last 4 games. While their offense is kicking into high gear, the New York Giants are sputtering badly. The Eagles are not a great ATS pick on the road, but I still think they get the job done here.
The LA Chargers are coming off a very entertaining win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in primetime and will now be heading to Denver to face a Broncos team that is just 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games. The Chargers offense is too much for Denver to handle.
NFL Week 12 O/U Parlay – Bears (U41 ½), Raiders (O50 ½), Jets (O44 ½)
Thanksgiving Day gets started with the Chicago Bears going on the road to face the Detroit Lions in a battle of misfiring offenses. The Bears have seen 7 of their last 9 go UNDER, while the same has happened for the Lions in 7 of their last 8.
Another Thursday game sees the Las Vegas Raiders hit the road to face the Dallas Cowboys. Both offenses have cooled off after a hot start to the season, but Las Vegas has still seen 10 of their last 15 games go OVER.
Seeing the Jets and the Texans set to square off might automatically make you think of the under, but you may want to think again. The Texans are 3-1 O/U at home this season, but more convincing is the fact that the OVER has hit in 9 of the last 10 games the Jets have played versus the AFC South.
