Week 7 wasn’t the best for my NFL parlay picks, as I went 1-2 and couldn’t continue my same game parlay success after hitting four of the last five.
However, my best parlay (CLE ML + KC -5.5) came through thanks to a last-second rushing touchdown from Kareem Hunt, who helped the Cleveland Browns defeat the Indianapolis Colts 39-38.
The Kansas City Chiefs also held up their end of the bargain, covering the spread in a 31-17 win over the Los Angeles Chargers.
As we look forward to another exciting week, let’s get into my best NFL Week 8 parlays.

NFL Week 8 Best Parlay Bet
Week 8 Best Parlay (+264)
- Chiefs -8 (-108) vs Broncos
- Patriots vs Dolphins Under 47 (-112)
I am going back to the Chiefs for the second consecutive week after they covered the spread against the Chargers. With the win, Kansas City is 17-3 straight up and 8-12 ATS against the AFC West since 2020.
These teams played each other on Thursday Night Football in Week 6, with the Chiefs winning 19-8 at Arrowhead. The Broncos defense played better last week against Jordan Love and the Packers, but they still gave up 137 rushing yards.
It wouldn’t be a surprise to see Isiah Pacheco bounce back as the Broncos try to slow down Patrick Mahomes, who is coming off a 424-passing-yard outing last week.

Along with the Chiefs, I’m taking the Under between the New England Patriots and Miami Dolphins. When these two AFC East rivals played each other earlier this season, the total number of points scored was 41.
The Patriots are 5-2 to the Under, while the Dolphins’ O/U record is 2-2 when the total is between 45 and 48 points.
NFL Week 8 Longshot Parlay Bet
Week 8 Longshot Parlay (+939)
- Seahawks ML (-166) vs Browns
- Saints ML (+102) vs Colts
- Texans ML (-155) vs Panthers
- Jaguars 1H -0.5 (-105) vs Steelers
After my Week 7 longshot parlay fell flat on its face, I’m mixing it up for Week 8 by taking three teams on the moneyline and the Jacksonville Jaguars’ first-half spread.
I like the Seattle Seahawks to defend home turf this week against the Browns, who are dealing with injuries to QB Deshaun Watson (shoulder) and RB Jerome Ford (ankle). If Watson cannot play Sunday, Cleveland could turn to P.J. Walker, who has thrown three interceptions in the last two games.

Along with the Seahawks, I’m banking on the New Orleans Saints and Houston Texans to pick up road wins over the Colts and Panthers. New Orleans almost pulled off a comeback win over Jacksonville on Thursday, but it should fare better against an Indy defense that allowed 39 points to Cleveland.
Meanwhile, the Texans have played good football over their last four games, with their only loss coming on the road against the Falcons in Week 5. C.J. Stroud and Houston’s offense shouldn’t have any problems against the Panthers, who have been outscored by 19.5 points per game over their last two contests.
Lastly, I like the Jaguars to cover the spread in the first half against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Jacksonville is a stellar 6-1 ATS in the opening 30 minutes, while the Steelers are 2-4. The Jags average 12.3 first-half points per game, and Pittsburgh falls well below that mark (7.0).
NFL Week 8 Same Game Parlay Bet
Eagles vs Commanders Same Game Parlay (+172)
- Eagles 1H -3.5 (-110)
- Eagles: Over 25.5 Points (-108)
Our same game parlay hones in on another Week 8 divisional rematch, with the Eagles traveling to FedEx Field to take on the Washington Commanders.
When these two NFC East foes met in Week 4, Philly won 34-31 in overtime, thanks to a game-winning kick by Jake Elliott. The Eagles trailed by seven at the half but scored 24 points in the second half and OT.

I like the Eagles to flip the script this week and cover the first-half spread. Philly is 5-2 against the first-half line this season, while the Commanders are 2-5. The Eagles also have a great chance to score more than 25.5 points, even despite QB Jalen Hurts dealing with a knee injury.
In its last four losses, Washington has allowed 31.3 points per game, including 40 points to the lowly Chicago Bears in Week 5. Philadelphia was also much better in the red zone last week against the Dolphins (4-for-6), which is a good sign heading into this week.
