The NFL Week 9 slate started with a home win for the Pittsburgh Steelers against the Tennessee Titans on Thursday, and with 4 teams on a bye after everyone was in action in Week 8, that means we need ‘only’ to find 13 money-line winners to cash a millionaire parlay this week. How hard could it be?

One of the most fun bets you can have with an NFL wager is to swing for the fences with a millionaire parlay, so I’ve taken a money line pick from every remaining game this week to create this +204989 odds parlay at FanDuel Sportsbook.

Let’s see the teams that could make us rich for a small stake across Sunday and Monday night. Make sure to also check out our NFL Week 9 picks for every matchup.

Miami Dolphins ML over Kansas City Chiefs (+106)

The bad news is that the NFL schedulers have presented another opportunity for every-game parlays to be sunk before lunchtime, with one of the week’s trickiest matchups between the Dolphins and Chiefs taking place in Frankfurt, Germany, with a 9:30 am ET start. The good news is that there will still be time to have another try with the other 12 games before the 1:00 pm ET games begin!

This pick goes against the pattern of the Dolphins smashing weak teams only to lose when they meet teams with winning records, but they’re in a better place overall than the Chiefs right now and I also like that they traveled over to Germany much earlier in the week than the Chiefs, so they have adjusted to the European time zone.

Los Angeles Rams ML over Green Bay Packers (+142)

The Rams disappointed in Dallas but have a solid chance of sending the struggling Packers to a 5th straight defeat, provided QB Matthew Stafford’s thumb issue doesn’t prove to be too serious.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers ML over Houston Texans (+126)

I’m not the biggest fan of this Tampa Bay team, but there has to be some value in taking the Bucs at plus money against a team that handed the Panthers their first win of the season last week.

Washington Commanders ML over New England Patriots (+138)

It’s not often we will start one of these parlays with 4 road underdogs (well, 3 and a neutral-site underdog) but again, taking a shot with the Commanders at +138 is much more palatable than trusting the 2-6 Patriots at -164. Even so, Mac Jones will be pleased he is not going to be seeing Chase Young and Montez Sweat.

New Orleans Saints ML over Chicago Bears (-400)

Sometimes the home favorite is just hard to ignore, though, so we’re switching to the chalk with the Saints — or rather fading the Bears.

Atlanta Falcons ML over Minnesota Vikings (-186)

The Vikings’ impressive 3-game winning streak is set to come to an end in Atlanta, unless Jaren Hall turns out to be better than expected in his first career start or Taylor Heinicke doesn’t do so well playing a full game for Atlanta.

Cleveland Browns ML over Arizona Cardinals (-450)

Whichever of the 4 starting QB options we see (Watson or Walker for the Browns, Tune or Murray for the Cardinals), the Browns should be able to find a way to get the home win.

Baltimore Ravens ML over Seattle Seahawks (-255)

The Ravens shouldn’t let the Seahawks steal a win the way the Browns did last week. Even though they let down their spread backers as the Cardinals came through the back door last week to cover, they should be a solid money-line pick.

Indianapolis Colts ML over Carolina Panthers (-134)

The Panthers boosted their confidence by final losing the 0 in their record when beating the Texans, but the Colts should be strong enough to prevent them claiming back-to-back wins.

Philadelphia Eagles ML over Dallas Cowboys (-172)

The Cowboys have beaten both LA teams over their last 2 games but will find a tougher test in the City of the Brotherly Shove. It’s not the easiest call of the week by any means, but the sensible move is to pick the home team.

Las Vegas Raiders ML over New York Giants (-126)

Anything could happen here as the Raiders become the first team this season to take the field under an interim head coach after the firing of Josh McDaniels. Reports suggest it has been hard to wipe the smiles off the faces of Raiders players this week, so a much-improved effort under Antonio Pierce would not be a surprise.

Cincinnati Bengals ML over Buffalo Bills (-126)

The Bengals finally look like themselves again after a stuttering start to the season, while the Bills have been stuck in what hopefully is only second or third gear for around a month now. The emotions around the game after last season’s Damar Hamlin could inspire the Bills to give their best effort, but the Bengals may be the better team right now.

New York Jets ML over Los Angeles Chargers (+154)

The Jets, believe it or not, are on a 3-game winning streak — even though last week’s Battle of New York against the Giants pushed the definitions of being a professional sports contest. The inconsistent Chargers managed to beat the Bears last week, but there’s value in the Jets as home ‘dogs on Monday.
