Since taking over writing duties for this weekly NFL parlay column, I’ve hit three of my six wagers.

Last week, I connected on my best parlay (+319), which saw the Green Bay Packers, Cleveland Browns, and Seattle Seahawks win on the road.

Let’s see if I can keep this good run going down the final stretch of the regular season.

Here are my best NFL Week 17 parlays.

NFL Week 17 Best Parlay Bet

Week 17 Best Parlay (+212)

  • Cowboys ML (-250) vs Lions
  • Ravens ML (-180) vs Dolphins
  • Broncos ML (-230) vs Chargers

After cashing a three-leg moneyline parlay last week for my top play, I’m going back to the well with a trio of home favorites.

The Dallas Cowboys haven’t lost at AT&T Stadium since their 2022 home opener, so I like their chances of beating the NFC North champion Detroit Lions on Saturday.

The Cowboys will be eager to steady the ship after back-to-back road losses, while the Lions could be in a let-down spot after celebrating their first division title in 30 years.

I’m pairing the Cowboys with the Baltimore Ravens, who made a massive statement with their 33-19 road win over the San Francisco 49ers on Christmas Day.

Lamar Jackson could solidify his NFL MVP case with another strong performance against a Dolphins team that hasn’t proven it can beat top contenders away from home.

Lastly, we’ll buy low on the Denver Broncos who have lost two straight and desperately need a victory over the Los Angeles Chargers to stay alive in the AFC playoff hunt.

NFL Week 17 Longshot Parlay Bet

Week 17 Longshot Parlay (+1310)

  • Falcons ML (+130) @ Bears
  • Saints ML (+130) @ Buccaneers
  • Chargers vs Broncos Under 39.5 (-112)
  • Rams ML (-245) @ Giants

My longshot parlay for NFL Week 17 kicks off with the Atlanta Falcons defeating the Chicago Bears on the road.

Chicago has won three of four and is playing above its baseline right now. Meanwhile, I think we’ll continue to see Atlanta’s offense improve with Taylor Heinicke under center.

We’ll pair the Falcons with another team vying for the NFC South title: the New Orleans Saints.

This is a great buy-low, sell-high spot as the Saints have lost four of six but have extra rest heading into Sunday’s matchup, while the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are riding a four-game winning streak against mediocre opposition.

Moving away from the worst division in football, I’m targeting the Under in an AFC contest between the Los Angeles Chargers and Denver Broncos.

The Broncos emerged with a 24-7 victory when these two teams met on Dec. 10, and the Chargers entered that game with Justin Herbert and Keenan Allen healthy.

There should be plenty of rushing attempts in that contest and the final leg of our parlay, which has the Los Angeles Rams defeating the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium.

The Rams also have a significant rest advantage after playing Thursday night. Meanwhile, the Giants haven’t even announced their starting QB after Tommy DeVito was benched for Tyrod Taylor in Monday’s loss to the Eagles.

NFL Week 17 Same Game Parlay Bet

Bengals vs Chiefs Same Game Parlay (+264)

  • Chiefs -7 (-112)
  • Under 44 (-108)

With the Kansas City Chiefs struggling and the Cincinnati Bengals missing QB Joe Burrow (wrist), this AFC Championship Game rematch has lost its luster. However, we’ll give ourselves a reason to watch this game with a same-game parlay.

The Chiefs are 7-7-1 against the spread this season but own a 3-1-1 ATS record after a loss.

Patrick Mahomes and Co. will be eager to bounce back from their shocking Christmas Day loss to the Las Vegas Raiders and this offense should get going against a Bengals defense that surrendered 31 points to Mason Rudolph and the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Much like Pittsburgh, Kansas City’s defense should also have success slowing Jake Browning, who could be without Ja’Marr Chase for a second straight game. That leads me to the Under, which has hit in six of seven Chiefs home games this year.
