Fliff Football: Best Parlays for NFL Week 17, College Football Playoff

While sports betting in California is illegal if you use real money, there are no rules outlawing sports betting with fake digital currency that can turn into real money.

Welcome to Fliff, the free social sportsbook where you can redeem Fliff Cash for cash or gift cards. It isn’t the exact same thing as a traditional sportsbook experience. But it’s dang close. Fliff is legal in California and most other US states.

If you use our Fliff promo code SHARP, you’ll get a 100% match bonus up to $100 Fliff Cash with your first purchase.

Once you’re all signed up and loaded with Fliff Cash and Fliff Coins, come back to this story for this weekend’s top Fliff football parlay picks.

Fliff NFL Week 17 Parlay Picks

San Francisco 49ers (-270) at Las Vegas Raiders

We aren’t getting too wild with our parlay picks this week, as you can see by this first one.

The Raiders are a mess. The 49ers are the exact opposite of a mess. Case closed. Give us San Francisco straight up and let’s see the Brock Purdy Show continue with another stellar week.

Seattle Seahawks (+110) vs. New York Jets

Frankly, we’re a bit surprised to see Seattle as the underdog, especially at home.

Yes, Mike White is healthy again and will start for the Jets. But he can’t fix everything. New York looked like the New York of the past decade in its laughable loss to the Jaguars last Thursday — nothing like the team that started the year 5-2.

Meanwhile, Pro Bowler Geno Smith has his high-octane Seahawks in the playoff hunt, facing a must-win situation.

Taking Seattle at +110 feels like easy money.

Jacksonville Jaguars (-215) at Houston Texans

Jacksonville has won four of its past five. Trevor Lawrence is looking like the Trevor Lawrence we expected when he was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. If the season ended today, the Jaguars would be in the playoffs.

The Texans? Well … while they’ve looked the best all season the past three weeks in a win over Tennessee and two close losses to Kansas City and Dallas, we just don’t love their chances against a Jacksonville team that has much more to play for.

New York Giants (-255) vs. Indianapolis Colts

Give us the team with a capable quarterback, star running back, and playoff-pursuit mindset over the team that just scored 3 points last week and has lost five games in a row.

We told you this was a more conservative parlay.

Fliff College Football Playoff Parlays

TCU QB Max Duggan Over 23.5 Rushing Yards (-120)

Max Duggan showed his ability to take over a game when he rushed for 90 yards in TCU’s game-tying fourth-quarter drive in the Big 12 title game against Kansas State. He can get big gains with his legs on broken plays, but Sonny Dykes has also shown confidence with designed run plays for Duggan.

No matter how you slice it, Duggan’s legs should play a significant role in TCU’s CFP Semifinal against Michigan. So we’ll take the Over on 23.5 rushing yards — which he’s done six times this season.

Georgia (-270) vs. Ohio State

It’s hard to imagine any of the CFP teams outplaying Georgia for four quarters. We’ll take the Bulldogs straight up in this semifinal, and we’d take them straight up against Michigan or TCU, too.

Sun Bowl: UCLA (-5) vs. Pitt (-120)

One of the biggest keys for betting on non-CFP bowl games is opt-outs — whether it’s guys who have already entered the transfer portal, or guys sitting the bowl game out to prepare for the NFL Draft.

Pitt has been obliterated by opt-outs, most notably from starting quarterback Kedon Slovis, ACC-leading rusher Izzy Abanikanda, and defensive linemen, Calijah Kancey, John Morgan III, and Deslin Alexandre.

On the other side, UCLA will have most of its major pieces for the Sun Bowl, with quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson, running back Zach Charbonnet, and receiver Jake Bobo all expected to play.

That’s why we’re betting the spread on this one.

Music City Bowl: Iowa vs. Kentucky, Under 36 (-200)

Combine two stellar defenses and two third-string quarterbacks and what do you get?

An Over/Under of 31, the lowest projected point total in college football history.

If you love defense, then Iowa vs. Kentucky in the Music City Bowl is the game for you. Bowl games can be weird, so we didn’t bite on the Under for 31. But check out the alternate lines on Fliff and you’ll see the Under 36 option for -200 odds. That feels a bit more comfortable.

4-Leg Parlay Odds: +590

This four-leg parlay comes with +590 odds. A winning bet of $1 Fliff Cash would get a $6.90 Fliff Cash payout. A winning bet of $10 Fliff Cash would get a $69 Fliff Cash payout, and so on.

Combined 8-Leg Parlay Odds: +3955

If you’re feeling lucky, this combined eight-leg parlay comes with +3955 odds. A winning bet of $1 Fliff Cash would get a $40.55 Fliff Cash payout. A winning bet of $10 Fliff Cash would get a $405.50 Fliff Cash payout, and so on.
