There are just 2 weeks left in the NFL season, and while we do know some of the teams that will be in the playoffs, there are still a lot of places to be filled. The AFC is insane right now, with the Chiefs the only team to have officially punched their postseason ticket. More spots will fill after Week 17, but the rest will go down to the wire. There are now only 2 open spots in the NFC, and those too probably won’t be decided until Week 18. There are huge games everywhere you look this weekend, it’s time to get into our parlay picks for NFL Week 17 so you can bet against the NFL odds.
2021 NFL Season Week 17 Parlay Picks to Bet On
Week 17 SU Parlay – Chiefs, Chargers, Cowboys
The Chiefs are the lone team to have clinched a playoff spot in the AFC and they can potentially clinch the #1 seed if they beat the Bengals this weekend. They have lost in each of their last 5 visits to Cincy, but KC is hot right now, winning 8 straight games.
Every week, I make a pick or two that makes me a little nervous. Taking the Chargers, who have lost 2 in a row to fall below the playoff line, might well be that pick. Still, I like them to rebound this week and get the win over Denver.
The Dallas Cowboys are on a roll and looking to keep their hopes of a #1 seed alive this weekend. They will go against a battered and bruised Arizona Cardinals team limping towards the postseason. I have to go with the Cowboys here.
Week 17 ATS Parlay – Rams (-3 ½), Colts (-7 ½), Eagles (-3 ½)
Speaking of teams limping towards the playoffs, the Baltimore Ravens are there, too, after losing 4 in a row. Things stay tough this weekend, as they will be up against the surging LA Rams. I am with the Rams to win and cover.
I had my picks made and written before I found out that Colts QB Carson Wentz would be out this weekend against the Las Vegas Raiders. I would keep an eye on how the spread changes with this news, at which point you can decide what to do with this pick.
It has been an up and down season for the Philadelphia Eagles, but they come into their Week 17 game versus Washington on a bit of a roll. Washington is an absolute mess right now, so I like the Eagles to cover this one quite handily.
Week 17 O/U Parlay – Bills (O44), Lions (O42 ½), Packers (O47 ½)
The Bills head into Week 17 with a chance to clinch the AFC East, which they can do with a victory over the Atlanta Falcons. We have seen the over hit in 6 of the last 8 meetings between these teams, so expect more of the same here.
The Lions and the Seahawks are set to meet in Week 17 in what is a tricky game to predict. Both are out of the playoffs, but we do still have players playing for jobs next season, so perhaps we see a wide-open offensive battle that takes the point total OVER.
Everything in the matchup between the Vikings and the Packers points to the OVER being the way to go. Both of these teams have been trending over in the last 5 or 6 games, while the Packers have seen the OVER hit in 9 straight games played in January.
