The 2021 NFL season has been great so far, and we have another exciting slate on Sunday for Week 6. Why not celebrate the fun by going for a big payday? That’s right; we’re back with another mega parlay, NFL edition. I’ve had a ton of success with these mega parlays, and even hit one at 74/1 in Week 13 last year. We’re going big and bold again, 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 game.

Houston Texans ML (+360)

Chicago Bears ML (+205)

Minnesota Vikings ML (-140)

Parlay odds: +2277

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

Houston Texans ML (+360) over Indianapolis Colts

Let’s start this parlay off the right way, with a double-digit dog. The Texans were undervalued as a huge money line underdog last week, and they nearly pulled off the upset over the Patriots. They led almost the entire game, and likely would’ve won if not for some questionable decisions by David Culley late in the game. This week, they’re being undervalued again. The Colts are 1-4 and have been completely decimated by injuries. They don’t deserve to be this big of a favorite over just about anybody.

Indy is so banged-up in the secondary, that Davis Mills should be able to move the ball just fine. If Mills could move it consistently against New England last week, he can do it against the Colts. Nobody is talking about it, but Mills averaged 10.8 yards per attempt with 3 touchdowns and no interceptions against the Pats last week. It was an impressive performance.

Chicago Bears ML (+205) over Green Bay Packers

I think the Bears have a very good shot to win this game. It’s at home, and I certainly don’t think the Packers will come out with an easy win like some seem to expect. And it’s not because Justin Fields has played all that well. It’s because new defensive coordinator Sean Desai is starting to get this Chicago defense to look like the unit it was a couple of years ago, when it was one of the best in the league.

Ever since their Week 1 loss to the Rams, the Bears’ defense has quietly played very well. At an elite level actually. Over their past two contests, they’ve given up only 23 total points. When you throw in the fact that Fields at least gives this offense a lot more upside than it had previously, I can’t pass on getting better than 2/1 with them. Green Bay’s offensive line is banged-up, and Bears pass-rusher Khalil Mack is starting to play like his old dominant self.

Minnesota Vikings ML (-140) over Carolina Panthers

Minnesota is one of the most underrated teams in the league right now, and I expect them to roll here. The Panthers got off to a 3-0 start, but have now lost back-to-back games. When you look at it closely, it’s clear their 3-0 start was fraudulent. They beat the Jets, Saints, and Texans. New York and Houston are two of the worst teams in the league, and New Orleans had been decimated by COVID that week.

In their last two games against the Cowboys and Eagles, Sam Darnold has looked a lot more like the Sam Darnold we all knew and loved on the Jets. The really bad one. The Vikings are 2-3, but should be 4-1 or 5-0 if they had just avoided some unlucky beats. Now is the time to buy low on them while you still can.
