The NFL preseason is winding down, and the third and final week of it will wrap up here on Sunday with five games. Why not celebrate our last round of exhibition action by going for a big payday? That’s right; we’re back with another NFL mega parlay — this time a four-teamer with a payout north of 15/1, and we’re counting on the Steelers to pull a money line upset.
We’re going big and bold, 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 preseason game, with our team of experts in red-hot form.
Miami Dolphins ML (+115)
San Francisco 49ers -4.5 (-110)
New England Patriots -3.5 (+100)
Cleveland Browns -5.5 (-110)
Let’s break down each of the four legs one by one.
Miami Dolphins ML (+115) over Cincinnati Bengals
To start this mega parlay off we’ve got the Dolphins as a slight underdog on the money line. Cincinnati has announced Joe Burrow will play a little bit here, which has caused oddsmakers and the public to overreact. This will be Burrow’s first live game action since he went down with an ACL tear, and he’s reportedly struggled in training camp. I don’t see why anyone would expect him to look particularly sharp here.
Dolphins head coach Brian Flores is now 5-1 in the preseason, and he’s the type of coach who cares a lot about these exhibition games. Miami is coming off a 37-17 beatdown of the Falcons, and even though Tua Tagovailoa won’t play here I’m not too concerned. The Dolphins have one of the best backup quarterbacks in the league in Jacoby Brissett.

San Francisco 49ers -4.5 (-110) over Las Vegas Raiders
The 49ers are in good position here. They’re going to play their starters, and both Jimmy Garoppolo and Trey Lance will see time here. Meanwhile the Raiders are sitting Derek Carr, and Nathan Peterman will likely see the bulk of the work under center for Las Vegas. Jon Gruden doesn’t appear to care about the preseason as much as he used to, and the Raiders are coming off a game where they only beat the Rams by one. Considering Los Angeles pretty much openly tanks the preseason and sits the vast majority of their relevant guys, that wasn’t too impressive. San Francisco should roll here.

New England Patriots -3.5 (+100) over New York Giants
New England has looked about just as good as one possibly could’ve hoped for this preseason. The Patriots are 2-0, with their two victories coming by a combined score of 57-13. They’ve still got a bit of a battle going on between Cam Newton and Mac Jones, so they should be trying pretty hard offensively. Defense has been where they’ve been most impressive though. In their most recent game they shutout the Eagles en route to a 35-0 domination. Philly then went on to score 31 in their next game, making the shutout even more notable. New York has struggled this preseason, and they’ve produced only 20 total points through two games.

Cleveland Browns -5.5 (-110) over Atlanta Falcons
To wrap up this mega parlay we’ve got the Chiefs in the nightcap. Kansas City won by seven last week, even with Patrick Mahomes having probably the worst game you’ll ever see him play. He struggled mightily while averaging only 4.3 yards per attempt, and the team has announced that he and the rest of the starters will play here. I think they’ll be highly motivated to get that bad taste out of their mouth before the start of the regular season, and should come out swinging as a result. The Vikings aren’t anything to be afraid of at the moment, and they’ve scored just 16 total points this preseason.
