Sports betting in California was shot down when voters emphatically rejected Prop 26 and Prop 27 in the Nov. 8 election. So, there is no legal sportsbook to use in the Golden State.
Or … is there?
If you haven’t heard of it already, allow us to introduce you to Fliff, the free, legal, social sportsbook. It offers moneyline, spread, total, prop, parlay, and some future bets on a wide range of sports.
It’s 100% legal because you don’t technically win real money with it. Once you accumulate a certain amount of Fliff Cash, you can redeem it for real cash prizes or gift cards. Or you can just play for fun with Fliff Coins, which can’t be redeemed for cash.
Use our Fliff promo code SHARP to sign up and get a 100% match bonus up to $100 in Fliff Cash.
Once you’ve done that, come back for some advice on the NFL and college football Fliff parlays we’re going with this weekend.
Fliff NFL Week 13 Parlay
Buffalo Bills -4 at New England Patriots (-110)
Have the Bills looked very good (for their standards) the past four weeks? Not at all.
Back-to-back losses and then iffy wins against Cleveland and Detroit don’t exactly inspire confidence. But we’re banking on Buffalo’s talent to be enough against an overachieving New England team.
Give us the Bills by a touchdown in a low-scoring affair.
Tennessee Titans +5 at Philadelphia Eagles (+100)
The Titans are such a weird team this season. Lose to the Giants in Week 1. Look like a JV squad in a blowout loss to Buffalo in Week 2.
Then … 5-2 since then. Yes, their wins have come against not-so-great teams and their four losses have come to the Giants, Bills, Chiefs, and Bengals — all teams at or below the Eagles’ tier.
But the Cincinnati and Kansas City losses were close, and Tennessee’s defense is good enough to keep this thing close all four quarters. And there’s also a saying written on every NFL football: “With Derrick Henry, anything is possible.” It’s true.
Anyway, give us the Titans to cover in a good game.

San Francisco 49ers (-205) vs. Miami Dolphins
There might not be a team in the NFL playing better than San Francisco right now.
And, sorry anybody reading in Miami, but we’re of the opinion that the Dolphins might — just might — be overrated.
The 49ers’ offense will shut down Tua Time enough for Jimmy G and his playmakers to win this one, maybe even by a couple scores.
3-Leg Parlay Odds: +468
With those three bets, you’ll have a parlay with +468 odds. That means a winning bet of $1 Fliff Cash would yield a $5.68 payout.

Fresno State +3 vs. Boise State (-105)
Oddsmakers are probably factoring in Boise State’s 40-20 win over Fresno State on Oct. 8 when setting the spread for the Mountain West title game. But Fresno State was without starting quarterback Jake Haener in that game, and he makes all the difference for this Bulldogs team.
Proof: Fresno State has won all five games since Haener’s return, including a 30-0 beatdown of Wyoming last week. (For reference: Boise State eked out a 20-17 win over Wyoming two weeks ago.)
We almost picked the Bulldogs straight-up. But, to be a little conservative here, and knowing this is part of a parlay, we simply picked Fresno State to cover.

Georgia -17.5 vs. LSU (-115)
Georgia is in a different league than LSU. Not much more to it than that. Plus, the Tigers have proven to be a whole mess of inconsistent throughout this season.
This may be kind of close in the first half, but expect the Bulldogs to put the hurt on in quarters three and four of the SEC title game en route to the College Football Playoff.
North Carolina +7.5 vs. Clemson (-115)
Entering Week 12, North Carolina fans were wondering why the heck their team wasn’t in the CFP conversation.
After two straight losses to Georgia Tech (gulp) and North Carolina State (less gulp), that talk has disappeared. But Clemson is limping into the ACC title game, too, fresh off a 31-30 loss to South Carolina last week in which DJ Uiagaleilei passed for *checks notes* 99 yards on a *checks notes* 8-for-29 clip.
So, we’re not picking an outright winner in this one. We’re predicting a tight game, where Drake Maye wins the QB battle and gives the Tarheels either a close win or a close loss.
3-Leg Parlay Odds: +582
With those three bets, you’ll have a parlay with +582 odds. That means a winning bet of $1 Fliff Cash would yield a $6.82 payout.
