I'm an editor here at Pickswise who was raised in a household full of sports fanatics. Since I unfortunately never had LeBron James' jumping ability I wasn't able to make it to the NBA, and chose writing about sports as the next best thing. An avid sports bettor myself, I'm excited to get to write about the industry as it gets set to take off across the country. Buckle up.

The NFL preseason is winding down and the third and final week of it concludes today with 5 games. Why not celebrate our last round of exhibition action by going for a big payday? That’s right; we’re back with another NFL mega parlay – this time a four-teamer with a payout north of 15/1. In it we are counting on the Steelers to pull a money line upset.

We’re going big and bold, so let’s not waste any more time. But before we dive in, don’t forget to check out our picks for the side and total on every NFL preseason game with our team of experts in red-hot form.

Miami Dolphins ML (+115)

San Francisco 49ers -4.5 (-110)

New England Patriots -3.5 (+100)

Cleveland Browns -5.5 (-110)

Parlay odds: +1416

Let’s break down each of the 4 legs one by one.

Miami Dolphins ML (+115) over Cincinnati Bengals

To start this mega parlay off we have the Dolphins as slight underdogs on the money line. Cincinnati has announced Joe Burrow will play a little bit here, which has caused oddsmakers and the public to overreact. This will be Burrow’s first live game action since he went down with an ACL tear, and he’s reportedly struggled in training camp. I don’t see why anyone would expect him to look particularly sharp.

Dolphins head coach Brian Flores is now 5-1 in the preseason, and he’s the type of coach who cares a lot about these exhibition games. Miami is coming off a 37-17 beatdown of the Falcons, and even though Tua Tagovailoa won’t play I’m not too concerned. The Dolphins have one of the best backup quarterbacks in the league in Jacoby Brissett.

San Francisco 49ers -4.5 (-110) over Las Vegas Raiders

The 49ers are in good position. They’re going to play their starters, and both Jimmy Garoppolo and Trey Lance will see time. Meanwhile the Raiders are sitting starting QB Derek Carr, and Nathan Peterman will likely see the bulk of the work under center for Las Vegas. Jon Gruden doesn’t appear to care about the preseason as much as he used to, and the Raiders are coming off a game in which they beat the Rams by only one point. Considering Los Angeles pretty much openly tanks the preseason and sits the vast majority of their relevant guys, that wasn’t too impressive. San Francisco should roll.

New England Patriots -3.5 (+100) over New York Giants

New England has looked about just as good as one could have hoped for this preseason. The Patriots are 2-0, with their two victories coming by a combined score of 57-13. They’ve still got a bit of a battle going on between Cam Newton and Mac Jones, so they should be trying pretty hard offensively. Defense has been where they’ve been most impressive though. In their most recent game they shutout the Eagles on their way to a 35-0 domination. Philly then went on to score 31 in their next game, making the shutout even more notable. New York has struggled this preseason, and they’ve produced only 20 total points through 2 games.

Cleveland Browns -5.5 (-110) over Atlanta Falcons

Atlanta is quite simply a horrific preseason squad (and the regular season hasn’t been much better in recent times!). So far in 2021 the Falcons have lost to Tennessee (23-3 at home) and Miami (37-17 on the road). In 2019 they went 1-4 and in 2018 they were winless at 0-4.

Is there any reason to think Atlanta will suddenly get on track? Probably not. Head coach Arthur Smith has given no indication that the starters will see much, if any, playing time, while the Browns, who are 2-0 without having played their starting offense at all, have said that they will give Baker Mayfield his first preseason action. Take the Browns to wrap up this mega parlay.
