The Best NFL Parlay Bets for Week 16
Los Angeles Rams at San Francisco 49ers odds (-260)
The 49ers pounded the Rams the first time these two rivals met earlier this season with San Francisco dismantling Los Angeles 20-7. San Francisco held the Rams to just 78 yards passing in that game and after this past week’s loss to the Falcons, the Niners will be ready while the Rams could be on a downturn after getting buried by the Cowboys.
The Niners are top three in the league in rushing, with a hydra of running backs including Raheem Mostert who is averaging almost six yards a carry. Meanwhile, the Rams just got run over by the Dallas Cowboys and Ezekiel Elliot with the Rams’ rush defense plummeting to 23rd in the league. The Rams probably blew any chance they had at making the playoffs last week and are going to have to face an angry Niners team. I see the 49ers getting back into the win column against a floundering Rams squad with the chances the Niners losing back-to-back games being between slim and none.
23 San Francisco 49ers

Pittsburgh Steelers odds (-160) at New York Jet
Despite their loss to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday night, don’t overlook the fact the Steelers have still won seven of their last nine games and are 4-1 ATS in their last five games against the Jets. This is going to be one of those games where Pittsburgh’s defense will lead them to a win on the road and keep their playoff hopes alive.
Why? Well, the Jets are just 31st in the league in total yards whereas Pittsburgh is 4th in the league in total yards against and 5th best in the league against the pass. From a pure betting standpoint, the Steelers are an impressive 9-3 straight up and ATS on the road in their last 12 games in December.
27 Pittsburgh Steelers
17 New York Jets
Green Bay Packers at Minnesota Vikings odds (-200)
The NFC North is on the line Monday night when these two bitter rivals collide in Minneapolis. The Vikings have been probably the best team in the league at home this season; going 6-0 and winning by an average of 14 points per game. The Packers are just 1-4 straight up and ATS in their last five versus their division on the road.
The Packers have lost their last two-night games (scoring just 19 points combined in those two games against the Chargers and 49ers) and the Vikings have outscored their last two opponents (Lions and Rams) by 42 points. By night’s end, the Vikings will be in a tie for the division with just one week left in the season.
31 Minnesota Vikings
23 Green Bay Packers
