My same game parlay cashed for the fourth time in five weeks, with the Jacksonville Jaguars defeating the Indianapolis Colts and exceeding their team total of 24.5 points.
However, my luck ended there as the best and longshot parlays fell short in Week 6. I almost hit the best parlay (SF ML + NE-LV Under 41.5), but the San Francisco 49ers lost 19-17 to the Cleveland Browns as rookie kicker Jake Moody missed a game-winning field goal.
Nevertheless, it’s a new week and the perfect opportunity to dole out more winning bets. Let’s check out my best NFL parlays for Week 7.

NFL Week 7 Best Parlay Bet
Week 7 Best Parlay (+234)
- Browns ML (-130) vs Colts
- Chiefs -5.5 (-112) vs Chargers
As of right now, we don’t know if the Browns will have starting QB Deshaun Watson (shoulder) back under center. However, if it’s Watson or P.J. Walker, I like the Browns to go on the road and defeat the Colts.
Cleveland showed its toughness last weekend against the 49ers and made second-year QB Brock Purdy look like a seventh-round pick. Now, this dominant defense gets Gardner Minshew, who threw three interceptions last week against the Jags.
If Cleveland can keep the duo of Zack Moss and Jonathan Taylor under wraps, the Browns should win.

The Kansas City Chiefs will try to continue their dominance over the AFC West when they play the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday afternoon. Since 2020, Kansas City is 16-3 straight up against the AFC West but only 7-12 against the spread. Over the same time frame, the Chargers are 9-10 straight up in the division but 12-7 ATS.
Based on those trends, it seems like Los Angeles would be the best bet. However, I trust the Chiefs more in this spot than the Chargers, who have found more ways to lose than win this season.
NFL Week 7 Longshot Parlay Bet
Week 7 Longshot Parlay (+1174)
- Bills 1H -5.5 (-110) vs Patriots
- Steelers vs Rams Under 43.5 (-110)
- Seahawks -7.5 (-112) vs Cardinals
- Commanders 1H ML (-118) vs Giants
Buffalo is 4-2 ATS in the first half this season, while New England is 2-4 ATS. The Bills looked sluggish on Sunday Night Football after playing in London in Week 5, but I expect a better showing this week in Foxboro.
Along with the Bills 1H spread, I’m taking Under 43.5 points in the matchup between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Los Angeles Rams. The Over is 1-4 in Steelers’ games so far this season and 2-4 in Rams’ games. Pittsburgh averages 15.8 points per game (30th in the NFL), while the Rams put up 23 points per contest (12th in the NFL).
- Check out our top moneyline, ATS, and Over/Under plays in our NFL Week 7 picks.
I’ll round out the longshot parlay with the Seahawks’ spread and the Commanders’ first-half moneyline. The Cardinals have struggled in NFC West play this season, losing their two divisional bouts by an average of 18 points per game. The Seahawks are 2-1 ATS as a favorite this season and should bounce back if Geno Smith can play turnover-free football.
Finally, the Commanders are 2-4 straight up in the first half, but the Giants are worse at 1-5. Washington scores 10.2 first-half points per game (18th in the NFL), while New York puts up a league-worst 4.2 points in the opening 30 minutes.
This game doesn’t feature an exciting quarterback battle, but I like the Commanders’ offense slightly more.
NFL Week 7 Same Game Parlay Bet
Jaguars vs Saints Same Game Parlay (+140)
- Saints ML (-120)
- Jaguars: Under 19.5 Points (-108)
The New Orleans Saints are going in the wrong direction, losing three of their last four games. But they will try to get back into the win column on Thursday night against the Jacksonville Jaguars, who have won three straight.
For the Saints to come away victorious, they will need their defense to hold down a Jags’ offense that has scored 28.3 points per game over their last three games. I think the Saints can silence Jacksonville’s offense, as New Orleans has the sixth-best scoring defense (16 points per game) this season.
- Stay up to date on the latest line moves with our NFL Week 7 odds.
The Jags have only scored less than 19.5 points twice this season, which came in losses to Kansas City and Houston. New Orleans’ offense hasn’t been great, but we’ve seen teams hit on big plays in the passing game against the Jags. The Saints have Chris Olave, Michael Thomas, and Rashid Shaheed at wide receiver.
If New Orleans’ run defense stands firm, and Derek Carr plays better in the red zone, the Saints should walk away with a close win at Caesars Superdome.
