The Minnesota Vikings can clinch their first NFC North title since 2017 when they host the New York Jets on Sunday at U.S. Bank Stadium. The Vikings (9-2) can clinch the division title with a win over the Jets and a Lions loss or tie, or a tie with the Jets coupled with a Lions loss. Minnesota is a three-point favorite in the latest NFL odds from Caesars Sportsbook, but which side should you back with your NFL parlays? The game is one of 15 on the loaded Week 13 NFL schedule. Elsewhere around the league, the Chiefs and Bengals will stage a rematch of last season's AFC Championship Game and Deshaun Watson will make his return to the field against his former team, the Texans. Before you make any Week 13 NFL picks or NFL parlays, you need to see what SportsLine senior analyst Larry Hartstein has to say.
A former lead writer for Covers and The Linemakers, Hartstein combines a vast network of Vegas sources with an analytical approach he honed while working for Pro Football Focus. He entered the 2022 NFL season 427-344 all-time on NFL side picks (plus $3,764 for $100 players), including 394-330 against the spread. Hartstein went 68-50 ATS and 8-3 on money-line plays last season for a profit of $1,552.
Hartstein also is 22-14 on his best bets this season, including 16-8 the past eight weeks. Anyone who has consistently followed him is way up.
Now, Hartstein has locked in his confident picks for three Week 13 games, and has a parlay that would pay almost 6-1. You can only see his picks at SportsLine.
Top Week 13 NFL parlay picks
After closely studying all 16 Week 13 games, Hartstein loves the Browns to cover against the Texans. Deshaun Watson, who served an 11-game suspension for violating the league's personal conduct policy, is playing his first game since Jan. 3, 2021, and first game ever for the Browns. Meanwhile, the Texans, the team that traded Watson to Cleveland, are 5-22-1 since Watson last played for Houston.
The Texans (1-9-1) enter the game having lost six straight games, the longest losing streak in the league. They are well on their way to locking down the No. 1 pick in next year's draft. "Houston is by far the NFL's worst team, with most of its offensive success coming in garbage time," Hartstein told SportsLine. You can see the rest of Hartstein's Week 13 NFL parlay picks here.
