NFL parlays are always extremely enticing because of the much higher upside than straight bets, even despite the far greater risk of losing your bet.
When betting parlays, it’s important to have at least some discipline in not adding too many legs. Even though your potential payout increases significantly, so does your probability of losing.
Some people recommend you stay away from them entirely, but that isn’t any fun! Also, given how sportsbooks like to give you bonus bets, why not use them on a parlay, considering it’s a free play?
If you’re looking to place a parlay bet for Sunday’s action, our betting team has you covered. From parlaying teams on the moneyline or anytime touchdown scorers, we have suggestions if you’re looking to score a greater payout than you would from a straight bet.
Our Betting Lines page has the freshest lines and promos to get BANG for your buck. PFN’s FREE Parlay Calculator and Betting Odds Calculator are also available for your betting process!

Best Week 4 NFL Parlays
Note: we do not recommend betting a full unit on every one of these parlay suggestions
Bearman: One of my favorite things to do is to take my favorite plays, go with favorable alternate lines past key numbers, and then use a 50% boost to get back to close to normal value. And with the numbers I want, It’s better than a teaser because those don’t give you anywhere close to true value.
As you saw in our best bets column, I like the Dolphins/Bills over, Browns/Ravens under, as well as the Patriots and Cardinals with the points. For the alternate parlay, I’m going to go Dolphins/Bills over 50, Browns/Ravens under 43, Cardinals +17, and Patriots +10.
The odds for this parlay are +470, but using DraftKings’ profit boost, the odds are +691. A four-team parlay at -110 typically pays 11-1, so you are giving up some value to get through key numbers, and you can move those numbers around to get more.
Parlay Pick: Dolphins/Bills O50, Browns/Ravens U43, Cardinals +17, Patriots +10 (+470 at DraftKings)
Blewis: If you’re in a survivor pool, you might have been eliminated after picking either of these teams to win last week. After they each lost by double-digits to two teams we expected to be among the worst in the NFL this season, I expect them both to bounce back this week.
The Cowboys are facing a Patriots team in which their starting quarterback has lost 11 straight starts as an underdog. They should be getting healthier on the offensive line this week, and this is a get-right spot for the Cowboys defense against a Patriots offense that doesn’t scare anybody.
Parlay Pick: Cowboys and Jaguars Moneyline Parlay (+128 at DraftKings)
Blewis: Christian McCaffrey has scored a touchdown 12 games in a row, including the postseason. As a result, the sportsbooks have priced up his anytime touchdown odds considerably, as it’s currently as short as -300 at DraftKings.
McCaffrey to get into the end zone is the closest we’ll get to a sure thing with a player prop, but it’s extremely unappealing to lay that much juice on any bet. So why don’t we parlay that with another player who is really profitable in this market?
Thanks in large part to the “Tush Push,” Jalen Hurts has scored in five of his last six games, including the postseason. It’s the most unstoppable play in football right now, and the Eagles will continue to run it with Hurts under center for as long as they can.
Parlay Pick: Christian McCaffrey and Jalen Hurts Anytime Touchdown Parlay (+146 at FanDuel)
Katz: Let’s have some fun with this one. Ezekiel Elliott, Adam Thielen, and Calvin Ridley are making their first appearances against their former teams. Elliott spent his entire career up until this season with the Cowboys. Thielen did the same with the Minnesota Vikings, and Ridley did the same with the Atlanta Falcons.
There is absolutely credence to the notion that teams try to get certain players the ball in the end zone. We saw the Chiefs do it last week for Travis Kelce with Taylor Swift in the building. We saw the Eagles do it last week for A.J. Brown (even though it didn’t work, they certainly tried).
If the Patriots get near the goal line, you just know they are going to give it to Zeke instead of Rhamondre Stevenson this week. And if the Panthers get inside the 10, expect Bryce Young to look Thielen’s way as well. As for Ridley, he should’ve scored each of the past two weeks but had some egregious drops. You can be confident they will try and get him at least one.
Feel free to leave out one of these for a more reasonable parlay, but if you want a true long shot, the revenge narrative is real in Week 4!
Parlay Pick: The Revenge Game Anytime Touchdown Parlay — Ezekiel Elliott, Adam Thielen, Calvin Ridley (+2559 at FanDuel)
