Each week this article will be dedicated to making the perfect five-leg parlay for you to make some money from. These longer bets naturally have a much smaller hit rate, so do be responsible with your betting. 

Parlays offer that thrill of hitting big with a touch of bragging rights for being correct on multiple legs. You mix some of our picks below with your own picks or take fewer legs based on how much risk you want to take on. This is designed to provide you with several legs with a higher chance of hitting than the odds listed.

With the start of the season upon us, there is sure to be plenty of promotions to take advantage of. Be sure to check. 

Let’s dive in!

Parlay NFL Week 3

Leg #1 - Nick Bosa o.25 sacks (-160)

Nick Bosa has yet to record a sack in 2023 after inking his new contract that made him the highest-paid defender in the sport. He’ll right that wrong in Week 3.

The Giants have allowed 10 sacks through the first two weeks of the season, tied with three other teams for the second-most sacks allowed behind the Texans. With Saquon Barkley likely sidelined on a short week more will be asked of Daniel Jones in the passing game. That should only help Bosa, who now has two weeks of football under his belt after holding out for all of August.

It’s been years since Bosa went three weeks without recording at least half a sack — specifically during his rookie year in 2019 from Weeks 8-10. Chances are he’ll break that streak on Thursday night.

Leg #2 - Miami Dolphins, -6.5 (-112)

The Dolphins sit 2-0 for the second consecutive season and with head coach Mike McDaniel at the helm, the team is a good bet to go 3-0 for the first time since 2018.

Tua Tagovailoa and this talented offense is averaging 30 points per game through the first two weeks of the season and now faces a Bronco squad that choked an 18-point lead at home to Sam Howell and the Commanders. 

Dolphins standout receiver Jaylen Waddle is in the concussion protocol and could miss Week 3, but the likely return of pass-rusher Jaelan Phillips will be a welcome sight. Miami is here to stay, and teams like that take care of teams like Denver.

Leg #3 - Broncos u2.5 touchdowns (-170, -160 in SGP)

Don’t let the 33 points scored by Denver in Week 2 fool you. Denver was flat-out abysmal on offense last week, albeit after a hot start.

The Dolphins defense has been overly maligned thus far, especially after Justin Herbert picked it apart in Week 1, but it rebounded nicely against the Patriots in a tough primetime spot in Foxborough. The promising play of linebacker David Long and the return of Jaelan Phillips should provide the Dolphins with a boost after the former barely played Week 1 and the latter missed Week 2.

Put it all together with Russell Wilson looking as inconsistent as ever, and you get a Broncos offense that looks far more similar to its Week 1 form than its Week 2 early start. Even at -170 this is an attractive line in a parlay.

Leg #4 - Green Bay Packers, -1.5 (-112)

Has anyone been remotely impressed with the 2-0 New Orleans Saints? You shouldn’t be, as Derek Carr has far from impressed in his first two games as a Saint.

The former Raiders signal-caller has thrown a single touchdown to a pair of interceptions in 2023, and he has taken eight sacks thus far. Meanwhile, the Packers should be hopeful in its new quarterback Jordan Love, who has thrown six touchdowns without a single interception yet this season. Carr sits down at 21st in quarterback rating so far, with Love all the way up in fourth.

The Saints could also be without starting running back Jamaal Williams, who left Monday night with a hamstring injury, and Alvin Kamara doesn’t return from his suspension until Week 4. On the other side of the ball, the Packers could return standout receiver Christian Watson and starting running back Aaron Jones, though the jury is out on both. 

The onus will be on Carr’s arm, and that’s a bet people should be happy to take the other side of.

Leg #5 - Eagles/Eagles, Half Time/Full Time (-115)

The Eagles were the highest-scoring first-half team in the NFL last year by a good margin and sits ninth in that category this year, averaging 14.5 points-per-game in 2023. Baker Mayfield has been a nice story — and he could have some impressive weeks in 2023 — but Philadelphia will put some water on the fire brewing in Tampa Bay.

Philadelphia hasn’t looked like the dominant force it was last season, with some questionable playcalling to say the least. But it still possesses one of the best receiver duos in football, and Tampa Bay lacks the talent at cornerback to cover even one of A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith.

Add in the emergence of D’Andre Swift, whose 175 rushing yards led the Eagles to a Week 2 victory, and you have an Eagles team ready to make an early — and late — statement on Monday night.
