NFL Parlay Free Pick October 16, 2016
What better way to give your bankroll a boost than with parlays and free picks? We have combined the two in our NFL Parlay Free Pick Sunday October 16, featuring three heavily favored sides perfect to combine in a free parlay paying out slightly over even money.
Cincinnati Bengals vs. New England Patriots ML
1 PM EST
The New England Patriots didn’t miss a beat while Tom Brady was suspended, and they looked even better with the star QB back under center in a 33-13 win at Cleveland in Week 5. Brady threw for 406 yards and three touchdown passes, all to Martellus Bennett.
The Bengals’ entire defense is suspect and their secondary is a big question mark, so expect Brady to air out just fine here again. The Bengals’ 28-14 loss at Dallas last week does not instill confidence and there’s just no way the Pats does not win this game outright.
San Francisco 49ers vs. Buffalo Bills ML
1 PM EST
Buffalo is at the publication of this article close to an 8-point favorite. That looks like a ton of points to cover for an unreliable team like the Bills, but surely they must win this game outright. San Francisco has lost four straight games since shutting out the Rams in Week 1, and the team has surrendered a boatload of points in each game during the skid.
Buffalo is heading in the opposite direction with three consecutive victories, and the team have averaged 178.3 rushing yards during the winning streak. San Francisco ranks 31st in rushing defense after allowing 146.8 yards per game, and not even Colin Kaepernick back under center will save the 49ers from an outright defeat.
Pittsburgh Steelers ML vs. Miami Dolphins
1 PM EST
The Miami Marlins have won just one of their five games this season, a 30-24 overtime home victory against the still winless Browns. The Steelers are 4-1 straight up on the season and looked extremely sharp in a 31-13 win against the Jets last Sunday. Ben Roethlisberger has a league-leading 15 touchdowns and he has thrown for 680 yards and nine scores without an interception in his last two games.
The Dolphins’ offense meanwhile ranks 29th overall with 303.8 yards per game and its defense dead last against the run giving up 150.8 yards per game. The Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell sat out the first three games of the season due to a suspension, but he has amassed 332 yards from scrimmage since returning. The Steelers have too much offensive firepower for the Dolphins to win this one outright.
