NFL Week 9 millionaire money line parlay for Sunday’s schedule (+99108 odds!): Bengals batter Browns
Whew! The first couple of months of the 2021 NFL season sure have been a wild ride. The action has been truly thrilling, and we’re only just about halfway through. We have a great Week 9 slate on Sunday, which will be highlighted by an NFC West showdown between the Cardinals and 49ers, and a great Sunday Night Football matchup featuring the Titans and Rams. It’s an NFL Sunday, we might as well celebrate by trying to hit the jackpot and score a massive payday, right?
Each week we’ll be doing a millionaire parlay, picking every Sunday game on the money line for the chance at a ridiculous payday. You never know!
Without further ado, here is our 13-leg Week 9 millionaire parlay.
Houston Texans (+200) over Miami Dolphins
What better way to start this millionaire parlay than with a money line underdog? The Texans are getting Tyrod Taylor back, which is massive. Houston picked up a dominant win in Week 1 when Taylor was under center, and they were playing a great game against the Browns in Week 2 before Taylor went down with his hamstring injury. With Taylor back, 2/1 is far too steep of a line.
Dallas Cowboys (-400) over Denver Broncos
The Broncos finally snapped their losing streak last week with a very narrow win over Washington, but I wasn’t too impressed. Their trade of Von Miller at the deadline shows they’re officially throwing in the towel on the season. Dak Prescott is back for Dallas, and the Cowboys should roll here.
Minnesota Vikings (+215) over Baltimore Ravens
I just can’t quit this Vikings team. They’ve underachieved for sure, but they’ve got all the talent you could ask for. And getting better than 2/1 here is just too good to pass up. They should have a lot more wins than they do, and Baltimore showed in their most recent game (an ugly loss to the Bengals) that they’ve got plenty of issues.
New England Patriots (-190) over Carolina Panthers
The Panthers also snapped a losing streak by beating the Falcons last week, but I’m still highly skeptical. New England’s defense has been playing really well, and Mac Jones has been great for a rookie. I have no confidence in Sam Darnold against a Bill Belichick defense.
Buffalo Bills (-1000) over Jacksonville Jaguars
Don’t overthink this one. The Jaguars have one of the worst defenses in the league, and Trevor Lawrence is getting absolutely zero help on offense. Buffalo’s defense has been even better than their offense, so Lawrence could be in for a rough day. The spread here is 14.5, and it wouldn’t be at all surprising if this game is decided by 20+.
Cincinnati Bengals (-132) over Cleveland Browns
I’m not a believer in Baker Mayfield, and I felt that way long before this Odell Beckham Jr. saga erupted. Now is the time to buy low on Cincinnati after their shocking loss to the Jets. That was just a bad spot for them, and the Bengals should bounce back against a dysfunctional and distracted Cleveland team.
Atlanta Falcons (+240) over New Orleans Saints
This line is just too high for a game the Saints will be playing with either Trevor Siemian or Taysom Hill at quarterback. I like the Saints defense as much as the next guy, but I don’t see New Orleans scoring much. The Falcons have been playing a lot better on both sides of the ball after their abysmal start.
Las Vegas Raiders (-176) over New York Giants
I’m officially out on the Giants. New York is on a short week after a devastating loss on Monday Night Football, while the Raiders are coming off their bye. Derek Carr has been nothing short of phenomenal lately, and I expect the Giants to look a bit demoralized after yet another tough loss.
Los Angeles Chargers (-130) over Philadelphia Eagles
The Chargers have had a rough couple of weeks, but this team is still super-talented. And I’m not ready to buy back in on the Eagles just because they looked good against a winless Lions team. The offense has still been inefficient with Jalen Hurts, and Justin Herbert should get back on track.
Kansas City Chiefs (-330) over Green Bay Packers
I don’t want any piece of the Jordan Love Packers. Green Bay is in a state of chaos right now with all the Aaron Rodgers drama, and I don’t see Love scoring enough to keep up with Patrick Mahomes in his first career start. The Chiefs’ defense has quietly been trending up after they looked truly horrific for a while.
San Francisco 49ers (-134) over Arizona Cardinals
Whether or not Kyler Murray plays, I like the 49ers this week. San Francisco just got really unlucky early in the year with a ton of injuries, while the Cardinals overachieved. Now Arizona is the team that’s banged up, and the loss of JJ Watt on defense is huge. Jimmy Garoppolo is coming off a great game, and he should be able to keep that momentum going.
Los Angeles Rams (-335) over Tennessee Titans
The Rams just traded for Miller, providing a huge boost to an already talented defense. Matthew Stafford is putting up ridiculous numbers under Sean McVay, and the Titans just lost Derrick Henry. Jalen Ramsey will remove AJ Brown from the game, so I don’t see the Titans doing much offensively.
