Best Bets for NFL Parlays in Week 14, 2020
It is not easy to hit on NFL parlays, but if you stuck it out with me through week 13, I finally delivered another winner.
I had some success earlier in the year and also endured some close calls, but the New England Patriots made it easy on me last week. My first three parlay picks for NFL betting converted to open up the day, and the Pats went on to crush the Chargers, 45-0.
It was a glorious day, as that parlay could have won you even more cash if you took the Browns (+5.5) as straight-up underdogs.
As fun as that was, I fully plan to do it all again in week 14. Stringing together wins is always easier said than done, but there are numerous bets calling my name this week.
With that, join me for my favorite parlay picks for NFL week 14.
New England Patriots to Win (+225)
The Patriots prevented a sweat to close out last week’s winner, so hopefully, they don’t mind helping me out to start the week, as well.
This is just too good of a price for a seemingly surging Patriots team. New England’s defense may have found their sweet spot, as they have made Kyler Murray and Justin Herbert look really bad in successive weeks.
Justin Herbert vs Patriots today: 209 total yards, 0 TD, 2 INT— Field Yates (@FieldYates) December 7, 2020
Justin Herbert in 10 other games: 320 total yards/game, 26 total TD, 7 INT
Kyler Murray vs Patriots last week: 201 total yards, 0 TD, 1 INT
Kyler Murray in 11 other games: 314 total yards/game, 32 total TD, 9 INT
New England has a nice narrative to roll with, too. After looking like they were headed for their first losing season with a 2-5 start, they’ve rebounded nicely. The Patriots have won two straight and four of their last five.
In fact, even when they’ve lost this year, it’s come in excruciatingly close fashion. New England could seriously be 10-3 right now if things bounced their way a bit more.
Bet on the Pats to beat their 6-point spread if you’re not with me on the upset, but I love the momentum they’re building. Cam Newton and co. need to find a way to be a bit better through the air, but if the defense and running game can keep it going, I love them at this +225 price.
Texans vs. Bears Over 45.5 (-110)
Okay, so the seemingly tough part of my week 14 NFL parlay picks is out of the way. And thankfully, that Patriots win (fingers crossed) would come on Thursday, so you’d know exactly what you need going into Sunday – and you’d know the parlay is over if they fail.
I think you can tack on the Over in this Texans vs. Bears game, or you can always just hammer the Over as a side bet.
Whatever you do, you should like the Over here. Maybe there is a better price or a lower total somewhere, and if so, go find it. But this requires this game to total 46 points, and it feels like one of the best plays on the board this week.
Houston almost beat the Colts last week, and perhaps they would have done so had Deshaun Watson not fumbled at the goal-line.
With Deshaun Watson and the Texans at Indianapolis' 2-yard line and primed to steal the lead away with under a minute to go, a botched snap bounced the way of the Colts, who recovered the fumble and held on for the win. https://t.co/Jn8SET0X6O— USA TODAY Sports (@usatodaysports) December 6, 2020
They would have ultimately put up more than the 20 points they managed, while Watson has led his offense to 25+ points in three of his last five games.
One of those games was in terrible weather, too.
Both Chicago and Houston do not play good defense. There should be next to no resistance in this game, while Mitch Trubisky – as bad as he seems – has at least put up points in his two games since returning to the starting lineup.
I know it doesn’t feel amazing, but this total is low when you look at the defenses and offensive firepower.
Tennessee Titans (-7.5) -110
Lastly, I am all about hopping aboard the Derrick Henry train this week. Most will balk at this 7.5-point spread with the Titans, but that’s recency bias.
It’s giving a bad Jaguars team a bit too much credit for hanging tight in several games, and it’s not crediting Tennessee enough for their insane offensive upside.
Yeah, the Titans got crushed by the Browns before a late rally last week, but you know how good this offense can be.
Derrick Henry has specifically owned the Jaguars lately.

Last three games vs. Jax:

Jacksonville shouldn’t rise up and provide some wild act of defiance. Mike Glennon is still their quarterback, after all, and after two respectable showings, the wheels should pop off.
Let’s not forget that the Titans have the ability to embarrass people. If it’s not Henry, it’s explosive weapons like A.J. Brown and Corey Davis through the air.
Tennessee will want to bounce back after what happened in their loss to the Browns, and they’re still playing for first place in the AFC South. Look for them to win big and hopefully drop the hammer on another winning NFL parlay.
Top Week 14 NFL Parlay Bet
- New England Patriots to Win (+225)
- Texans vs. Bears Over 45.5 (-110)
- Tennessee Titans (-7.5) -110
If you want to just bet on the Pats to win, you can get $225 back for every $100 you risk. But these other two bets fill out a pretty fun week 14 NFL parlay, and it bumps a $225 return up to $1,084.5 for every $100 risked.
Bovada is the best spot to bet on this week 14 NFL parlay, but feel free to shop around. And like always, you don’t need to go with my entire parlay. Pick just two of the bets, add another on, or just target these wagers individually.
