I put up another strong performance in Week 16, netting 5.37 units in profit. We’ll try to keep the winning streak rolling in Week 17.

Read on for my best, longshot, and same-game parlays for Week 17. Check out my X account, @FAmmiranteTFJ, to see my full betting card.

Let’s stay hot with my NFL Week 17 parlays.

Best NFL Week 17 Parlay

Frank Ammirante 2023 Betting Record: 280-342 (+19.77 units)

All NFL gameday odds are current as of Friday, Dec. 29, at 10 a.m. ET from DraftKings Sportsbook.

Week 17 Top Parlay (-109)

DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 0.5 Units

  • Bills ML (-800) vs Patriots
  • Eagles ML (-650) vs Cardinals
  • 49ers ML (-750) at Commanders
  • Chiefs ML (-325) vs Bengals

NFL Week 17 Top Parlay

We’re keeping it simple and going with four heavy favorites on the moneyline for the Week 17 top parlay.

We’ll start off with the Buffalo Bills (9-6), who have won three in a row and are looking to cement their position in the playoffs.

Josh Allen and company should be able to take care of business at home and avenge their Week 7 loss to the New England Patriots (4-11), who come off an upset win and are unlikely to make it two in a row.

Next, we’ll roll with the Philadelphia Eagles (11-4), who should be able to easily dispose of the Arizona Cardinals (3-12).

Philly will want to torment former defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon, who is now the head coach in Arizona. The Cardinals are simply overmatched in this one, and we could see a blowout here.

The third leg features the San Francisco 49ers (11-4), who are coming off an embarrassing home loss by double digits against the Baltimore Ravens.

The Niners will likely take it out on the Washington Commanders (4-11). I’m not worried that Jacoby Brissett is starting, even though he’s an upgrade over Sam Howell.

The final leg requires the Kansas City Chiefs (9-6) to defeat the Cincinnati Bengals (8-7).

Like San Francisco, the Chiefs are looking to bounce back following an abysmal performance at home. Patrick Mahomes should be able to shred a Bengals defense that just got torched by Mason Rudolph.

I like each of these plays against the spread as well, but I’ll put them in a parlay in case they win but don’t cover.

Target these four plays for our NFL bet of the day.

Longshot NFL Week 17 Parlay

Week 17 Longshot Parlay (+687)

DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 0.1 Units

  • Panthers ML (+210) at Jaguars
  • Chargers ML (+154) at Broncos

NFL Week 17 Longshot Parlay

The Week 17 longshot parlay features two underdogs that have a great chance of winning outright.

We’ll start with the Carolina Panthers (2-13) to beat the Jacksonville Jaguars (8-7).

Carolina has been much better under interim coach Chris Tabor, beating the Atlanta Falcons and almost coming from behind in a three-point loss to the Green Bay Packers.

Bryce Young had his best game as a pro last week and could build on that performance vs a struggling Jaguars defense that just got picked apart by Baker Mayfield.

On the other hand, the Jags are reeling right now, having lost four in a row. There’s also a chance that C.J. Beathard will be forced into action for the banged-up Trevor Lawrence.

Take a shot on the Panthers, who are slowly starting to trend upward.

I’ll finish it off with the Los Angeles Chargers (5-10) to avoid the season sweep against the division-rival Denver Broncos (7-8).

The Chargers nearly pulled off the upset over the Buffalo Bills in interim head coach Giff Smith‘s debut.

Los Angeles now takes on a Denver team that has benched Russell Wilson in favor of Jarrett Stidham for reasons that are largely financial.

Don’t underestimate the impact that this move could have on a locker room. There’s a decent chance that we don’t see the Broncos’ best effort in this game.

NFL Week 17 Same-Game Parlay

Panthers vs Jaguars Same-Game Parlay (+675)

DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 0.1 Units

  • Bryce Young: 200+ Passing Yards (+175)
  • D.J. Chark: 50+ Receiving Yards (+425)

NFL Week 17 Same-Game Parlay

I’ll go back to Jacksonville for the Week 17 same-game parlay by targeting Bryce Young and D.J. Chark.

The Panthers’ rookie quarterback is coming off his best game as a pro, completing 23-of-35 passes for 312 yards and two touchdowns.

This is an exploitable matchup vs a Jaguars defense that’s giving up 272.1 passing yards per game.

I’m adding Chark because the veteran wideout is also coming off a big game, having hauled in 6-of-8 targets for 98 yards and two touchdowns.

As an added bonus, it’s a revenge game for Chark, as he’s facing his former team. When Chark played the Jags last year, he racked up 98 yards.
