With the start of Week 16 just hours away from getting underway, the trio of last-minute NFL parlay picks that you’re about to get, based on the latest NFL betting odds, could help you cash in exponentially this coming weekend.

Can Matthew Stafford and the Detroit Lions give their narrow playoff hopes a boost against a Cincinnati Bengals team that has nothing left to play for and now knows longtime head coach Marvin Lewis is outta’ here like last year?

Will Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers cover the chalk as near double-digit favorites against Jameis Winston and a Tampa Bay Buccaneers team that has been one of the biggest bunch of underachievers in the league this season?

Last but not least, will the Jacksonville Jaguars put a beatdown on a San Francisco 49ers team that has clearly been revitalized by the play of quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo?

Let’s find some answers!

Last Minute Betting Picks to Place an NFL Parlay in Week 16

Detroit Lions (8-6) at Cincinnati Bengals (5-9)

  • When: Sunday, December 24, 2017, 1:00 PM ET
  • Where: Paul Brown Stadium, Cincinnati, OH
  • TV: FOX
  • Betting Odds: Detroit Lions -3 (Over/Under at 44)

Matthew Stafford and the Lions have everything to play for, while Andy Dalton and the Cincinnati Bengals will be one step away from completing what has been an underachieving campaign under longtime head coach Marvin Lewis (again). The Bengals showed no fight whatsoever in their ugly 34-7 loss against Minnesota last weekend while Detroit man-handled Chicago in their 20-10 Week 15 win to keep their playoff hopes alive.

Detroit is 5-2 SU over their last seven games while Cincinnati has gone a polar opposite 2-5 SU over the same span. This pick is easy as pie people. Stafford and the Lions cover the spread as a very manageable 4-point road favorite in this one!

NFL Parlay Pick: Detroit Lions -3

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4-9) at Carolina Panthers (10-4)

  • When: Sunday, December 24, 2017, 1:00 PM ET
  • Where: Bank of America Stadium, Charlotte, NC
  • TV: FOX
  • Betting Odds: Carolina Panthers -10.5 (Over/Under at 46.5)

Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers have recorded a pair of fantastic wins by beating Minnesota and Green Bay the last two weeks, not to mention they’ve won six of their last seven games overall.

The Panthers have a ton to play for as they still have a chance to win the NFC South and nail down a potential first-round bye.

The Panthers should be included in your NFL Parlay ticket for Week 16.

Jameis Winston and the Buccaneers have nothing left to play for and they’ve rolled over like a trained dog in losing their last three games coming into this contest. The Bucs are an awful 2-9-1 ATS in their last dozen games while Carolina has gone a near-perfect 6-1 ATS in their last seven.

If the Panthers don’t have the game firmly in hand by the time halftime rolls around, I’ll be completely stunned.

NFL Parlay Pick: Carolina Panthers -10.5

Jacksonville Jaguars (10-4) at San Francisco 49ers (4-10)

  • When: Sunday, December 24, 2017, 4:05 PM ET
  • Where: Levi’s Stadium, Santa Clara, CA
  • TV: CBS
  • Betting Odds: Jacksonville Jaguars -4.5 (Over/Under at 42)

Jacksonville has won three straight and seven of eight overall and ‘opened up a serious can of whup-ass 45-7 smackdown win over an injury-ravaged Houston team I actually feel bad for right about now. The San Francisco 49ers have won three straight games and have clearly been revitalized by the play of new starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo.

Still, though, the Niners have beaten the likes of the lowly Bears, Texans and suddenly struggling Titans in their last three games and just haven’t faced a team of Jacksonville’s caliber since ‘Jimmy G’ took over. San Francisco has gone an uninspiring 1-4 ATS in their last five home games while Jacksonville has gone 7-2 ATS in their last nine road dates.

The incendiary Jags and their league-leading defense get the easy win t cover the chalk in this one.

NFL Parlay Pick: Jacksonville Jaguars -4.5
