Betting NFL parlays are the ultimate risk/reward proposition given that each one of your picks included in that bet needs to win. The only exception is in the case of a PUSH, which reduces the parlay by one play. The more teams you add to a parlay play, the bigger the return, but I look at three teams as the sweet spot with a 6/1 return. Once you start adding teams, the betting edge shifts more and more in the book’s favor.
Intertops online sportsbook will often times sweeten that spot with special prop bet odds for a designated three-team play. One of the best-valued parlay booster bets on the board for Week 6 groups the three late Sunday afternoon games together at a 7.5/1 return. The three-team parlay consists of the Los Angeles Rams, Jacksonville Jaguars, and the Baltimore Ravens.
The Rams are 5-0 straight-up with a 3-1-1 record against the spread heading into a 4:05 p.m. start on FOX as seven-point road favorites against the 2-3 Denver Broncos. They failed to cover for the first time this season in last Sunday’s tight 33-31 victory against Seattle as 7.5-point road favorites, but that was against an NFC West rival.
The Broncos have lost their last three games by a combined 35 points following the SU 2-0 start. They have gone a costly 0-4-1 against the spread this season. Look for Los Angeles to keep things rolling on the road where it has gone 6-3 ATS in its last nine road games.
Jacksonville will be on the road against the Dallas Cowboys as a three-point favorite in a 4:25 p.m. start at AT&T Stadium on FOX. The Jaguars come into this inter-conference clash at 3-2 both SU and ATS following last Sunday’s 30-14 road loss against Kansas City as three-point underdogs. They covered as three-point favorites against the New York Giants in their only other road game this season.
Dallas slipped to 2-3 (SU and ATS) with a 19-16 overtime loss to Houston as a 3.5-point road underdog. The Cowboys return home with a 2-4 record ATS in their last six games at AT&T Stadium against Jacksonville’s 10-5 record ATS in its last 15 road games.
The bigger factor in the Jaguars’ favor in this matchup is a defense that is ranked third in the NFL in points allowed (17.2) going up against a Dallas offense that is averaging 16.6 points per game. As a side bet on a two-team parlay, you might want to take Jacksonville and the UNDER 40.5 points in this one.
The final play in this parlay prop sends the 3-2 Baltimore Ravens on the road to face the 3-2 Tennessee Titans in a 4:25 p.m. start at Nissan Stadium on CBS. Each team is coming off a Week 5 loss with the Ravens set as slight 2.5-point favorites on the road for this game.
Baltimore was on the wrong end of a 12-9 grinder against NFC North rival Cleveland as a three-point road favorite last Sunday. This followed a big 26-14 upset against Pittsburgh as a three-point underdog in another road game against a division foe.
Tennessee was flying high with back-to-back victories as an underdog against Jacksonville on the road and Philadelphia at home. Things came crashing down last Sunday in a 13-12 road loss against Buffalo as a six-point favorite. It is hard to know what to expect from the Titans in this Sunday’s matchup.
The Ravens have a 4-2 mark ATS in their last six road games and it has a 7-3-1 record ATS in its last 11 road games against the Titans. This is shaping up as another low-scoring grind for each team with the 2.5-point spread favoring Baltimore in a three-point road win.
