Super Bowl Parlay picks: Which ones are the best?
Here are our free sports picks for a three-leg parlay for our Super Bowl parlay with odds around +586. Always be sure to shop around for the best NFL odds, especially when it comes to the best Super Bowl parlay bets.
Eagles Prop: Jalen Hurts Anytime Touchdown Scorer (+105)
We begin our Super Bowl 57 parlay picks with Jalen Hurts adding to his NFL record with a 16th rushing touchdown from the quarterback position (playoffs included). He has not been throwing the ball as well lately, but Hurts has scored a rushing touchdown in five of his last six games, including one in both playoff games.
Hurts has scored a rushing touchdown in 11 games this season. He has become the team’s best short-yardage runner as the Eagles have found a way to make the quarterback sneak even more unstoppable by having one or two players push Hurts from behind on the play. It would not be surprising to see the NFL change the rule in the near future to limit the success of this play in the name of player safety.
But Hurts is the rushing touchdown threat in this game as 17 of his 28 career scores have come from inside the 3-yard line. The Chiefs allow the most passing touchdowns in the league, but the Eagles approach things differently with the run and high-percentage plays in the red zone. The Chiefs are also a bottom-ranked defense in the red zone this year.

Chiefs Prop: Isiah Pacheco Over 49.5 Rushing Yards (-114)
It sure would be wise for the Chiefs to give Patrick Mahomes more help with the running game this week. In the AFC Championship Game against the Bengals, the Chiefs had 17 carries for 34 yards as the run support for Mahomes, who was not 100% with the high-ankle sprain he aggravated in the third quarter.
The Chiefs have to do a better job of keeping Mahomes upright against a pass defense that had 70 sacks this season. One way to do that is to run the ball effectively. When these teams met last season, the Chiefs finished with 200 rushing yards for only the second time in the Mahomes era.
It just so happens that run defense is the one spot where the Eagles look most mediocre this season, ranked 16th in yards allowed and 24th in yards per carry against (4.6). This is a great spot for Isiah Pacheco, the rookie who runs every carry like its his last, to run for 50-plus yards and hit his over for your Super Bowl parlay picks. Pacheco had just 10 carries for 26 yards against the Bengals, but this will be played in nicer conditions indoors on a fast field.
It is the field where Pacheco made his Week 1 debut against the Cardinals and he rushed for 62 yards and his first NFL touchdown. That kind of game is well within his reach here as the Chiefs would look very unprepared to make this another Super Bowl where Mahomes is running for his life against a top pass rush.
Run the ball, Andy.

Second Half Spread: Chiefs +1.5 (-136)
The final leg of our Super Bowl parlay picks is trusting these teams to live up to their reputations. The Eagles started this season 8-0 with a record number of second-quarter points (133), which allowed them to become the third team since the 1970 merger to not trail in the second half of their first eight games.
But since losing to Washington in Week 10, the Eagles cooled down with their early dominance, but we have seen it return in the playoffs against overmatched opponents.
Meanwhile, the Chiefs have had their share of comebacks, but this team is hard to blow out. The Chiefs have gone 32 straight games without losing by more than 4 points, which is only two games shy of tying the NFL record. We have seen the Chiefs trail by double digits in three straight playoff games and still win them all by double digits during their 2019 Super Bowl run, including a 20-10 deficit turned into a 31-20 win in Super Bowl 54 against the 49ers.
With this matchup, one could reasonably assume the Eagles will lead at halftime after another good start, but the Chiefs have that ability to adjust and come back behind the best quarterback in the league.
The Eagles are plus-116 in scoring differential in the second quarter this year, but only plus-17 in the other three quarters combined and plus-12 in the second half.
The Chiefs are plus-42 in the second half this season, and Mahomes often puts up his best numbers on the road. Seven of Kansas City’s eight 30-point games have come away from Arrowhead this season.
We will trust the Chiefs to close the game on a high note.

What Is an NFL Parlay and how to bet Super Bowl parlay picks?
Super Bowl parlay pick is simply a wager that consists of multiple bets on the same slip. They could be from the same game or from different games. If they are all NFL picks, then you can call that an NFL parlay.
To win an NFL parlay, every leg of the parlay must hit. You can go 14-1 on a 15-leg parlay but that is still a losing bet, which is why parlays are akin to lottery tickets for how fun and frustrating they can be when you come up one number short.
There is a scenario where you can win your parlay without every leg hitting. If one of your legs is a push, then most sportsbooks will pay that out as a winner. The leg that pushed is voided and your payout is now based on the odds with that leg removed from the parlay.
There is also the situation where if a player is injured or a surprise inactive for a game, the sportsbook may void that leg too, allowing the rest of your Super Bowl parlay picks to play out.
A two-leg bet is still technically an NFL parlay. If you bet on the Eagles to win and the game to go under the total, that would still be a parlay. The number of legs you can add to a parlay will vary by site, but you can usually expect a range from 12 to 24 legs as the most you can have.
Remember, each additional leg is just going to make it harder for you to win the parlay. This is why professional gamblers tend to stay away from NFL parlay picks, but if you are just looking for fun wagers during the Super Bowl, feel free to treat NFL picks and parlays as your little lottery tickets.
