Is there anything better than going into the final week of the NFL regular season and seeing a ton of meaningful games on the schedule? A lot of people were torn about the idea of adding an extra week to the season, but if it’s going to deliver a finish like this, then long may it stay this way. All but 2 of the playoff spots have been claimed, but even the teams who have already made it in still have division titles and seeding to play for, so expect a lot of drama on the final day. With all of that said, let’s break down our parlay picks for Week 18 of the NFL season so you can keep making your bets against the NFL odds.
2021 NFL Season Week 18 Parlay Picks to Bet On
NFL SU Parlay – Cowboys, Vikings, Patriots
No team likes to essentially back into the playoffs on a losing streak, and while the Cowboys have clinched the division, they could potentially take their 2nd straight loss this weekend. I like them to get past Philly on Saturday.
The Minnesota Vikings will be closing out a disappointing season this weekend when they host the Chicago Bears, who come into this one on a modest 2-game win streak. The Vikings might well have Kirk Cousins back, which could be the difference here.
With one game left to play, the New England Patriots still have a shot at winning the division, although they need to beat the Dolphins and hope that the Buffalo Bills lose. Not sure about the Bills, but I like the Patriots to do their part.
NFL ATS Parlay – Chiefs (-10), Buccaneers (-8), Bills (-17)
The Chiefs had the opportunity to all but lock up the #1 seed in the AFC last weekend, but a loss to the Bengals made things tougher. They now need a win and some help, but I think the Chiefs are going into Denver with a chip on their shoulder.
Much like last season, the Buccaneers are going to need to take the long road to the Super Bowl after seeing the Packers clinch the #1 seed. They may choose to rest some guys, but I still think they win and cover against the Carolina Panthers.
With a win, the Buffalo Bills can clinch their 2nd straight AFC East Division title. Hosting the Jets at home seems like the perfect recipe for getting that win. I like the Bills to totally dominate in their own building against the struggling Jets.
NFL O/U Parlay – Packers (O42 ½), Steelers (U41 ½), Titans (O43)
I should preface this pick by saying that you might want to go the other way if the Packers decide to rest Aaron Rodgers this weekend. That aside, Green Bay has seen 5 of their last 6 games go OVER, as well as 5 of their last 6 versus divisional opponents.
We have grown accustomed to seeing the Steelers and Ravens engage in hard hitting games that don’t deliver a ton of offence. 5 of their last 7 meetings in Baltimore have gone UNDER, so let’s go for more of the same with this one.
The Tennessee Titans come into the final week of the regular season with a chance to nab the #1 seed in the AFC. They can do that win a win over Houston on the road. Their last 5 visits there have ended with the point total going OVER.
