Week 16 of the 2022 NFL season is getting underway with Thursday Night Football between the Jacksonville Jaguars and New York Jets, but now it’s time to look ahead toward the weekend schedule. The Saturday (11) and Sunday (3) slates features a sizable total of 14 games, with some massive playoff implications at hand. Each week we are choosing a millionaire parlay, picking every game on the money line for the chance at a massive payday.

Without further ado, here is our 14-leg Week 16 millionaire parlay. It would pay out at +129424 odds! How about a Christmas miracle?!?!

Make sure to check out our NFL Week 16 picks for EVERY matchup!

Buffalo Bills ML (-365) over Chicago Bears

It’s not the biggest spread of the week, but it’s close. Give me the Bills without any hesitation.

Cincinnati Bengals ML (-170) over New England Patriots

The Bengals are on an absolute roll right now and it’s going to be hard for the Patriots to recover from last week’s complete final-play disaster.

Kansas City Chiefs ML (-460) over Seattle Seahawks

This is the biggest spread of Week 16, with Kansas City favored by 10 points. Needless to say, the money line should be extremely safe.

New York Giants ML (+180) over Minnesota Vikings

If any 11-3 team in this history of football cannot be trusted, it’s these Vikings. They have played with fire so often in 2022 that eventually they will get burned.

Carolina Panthers ML (+120) over Detroit Lions

This is one of the toughest calls of the week, but I will go with the Panthers at home at plus money. The Lions’ hot streak has to end at some point, right?

Tennessee Titans ML (-165) over Houston Texans

You have to give Houston credit for not throwing in the towel. The Texans will probably be competitive yet again, but I’m not prepared to pick an outright win.

Cleveland Browns ML (-155) over New Orleans Saints

Is anyone going to spend Christmas Eve watching Cleveland vs New Orleans?!?! Outside of the 2 cities and perhaps a few fantasy owners with playoff implications, no! Whatever the case, let’s go with the Browns.

Baltimore Ravens ML (-325) over Atlanta Falcons

Both teams are on their 2nd quarterbacks. That’s a bigger deal for Baltimore since Lamar Jackson is a lot better than Marcus Mariota, but the Ravens’ supporting cast is much better than that of the Falcons.

Check out our full Falcons vs Ravens predictions

San Francisco 49ers ML (-340) over Washington Commanders

Washington’s offense isn’t good even against bad defenses. Now it has to face San Francisco, so points will likely be few and far between for the visitors.

Check out our full Commanders vs 49ers predictions

Dallas Cowboys ML (-245) over Philadelphia Eagles

The good news for the Cowboys is they’ll probably win since Jalen Hurts is out; the bad news is it probably won’t matter in the division race because of last week’s loss to Jacksonville.

Check out our full Eagles vs Cowboys predictions

Pittsburgh Steelers ML (-135) over Las Vegas Raiders

Neither team inspires much confidence, but I’ll throw my eggs into the Mike Tomlin basket over the Josh McDaniels basket any day of the week. Yes, even Saturday.

Green Bay Packers ML (+165) over Miami Dolphins

Three games are saved for Christmas Day, starting with the Packers visiting the Dolphins. Even though this isn’t in the Frozen Tundra, Aaron Rodgers and company can’t be counted out.

Check out our full Packers vs Dolphins predictions

Los Angeles Rams ML (+130) over Denver Broncos

This is a matchup of which only Ebenezer Scrooge would approve. Actually, some bettors also might approve. After all, getting any Denver opponent at +130 is an enticing play.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers ML (-360) over Arizona Cardinals

Someone has to win a clash between 2 of the most disappointing teams in the league. And when it’s Tom Brady with a team still in contention vs Colt McCoy with a team out of contention, it’s a no-brainer.
