With almost every day in sports, an underdog comes up with a way to win. The online sports betting lines may give these teams less than a 50 percent shot at victory, but don’t tell that to these underdogs. The NBA, NHL, and NFL are all active this weekend as we find the likeliest underdog winners to come through for us in this cross-sport parlay.
Let’s check the latest NFL picks, stats, injury reports and odds. We’ve got plenty of NFL lines for NFC Conference Championship Games.
Three Dog Bets To Parlay This Weekend
Bengals (Ev) vs Chiefs
- Total: Over 48 (-110), Under 48 (-110)
- Day/Time: Sunday, Jan. 29, 6:30 p.m. ET
- Stream: CBS
The NFL betting lines have been in disarray here. Are the Bengals underdogs? Right now they are as news of Patrick Mahomes’s injury makes the Chiefs’ superstar quarterback look ready. But even with a healthy Mahomes, the Bengals have already beaten the Chiefs and they can do it again.
The Bengals have better defense. This unit allows the lowest passer rating in the NFL at just 80.1 this season. Against Josh Allen, the Chiefs held him to one of his worst playoff performances. And despite a battered offensive line, the Bengals managed to give Joe Burrow enough time to shred Buffalo. This team is the right side to bet on online.
Pick: Cincinnati Bengals (Ev)
Bulls vs Magic (+3½)
- Total: TBD
- Day/Time: Saturday, Jan. 28, 7:00 p.m. ET
- Stream: BSFL, NBA League Pass
Moving to the NBA, the Orlando Magic play host to the Chicago Bulls as home underdogs. The Magic play on the second night of a back-to-back. They are just 1-8 when doing so but Chicago is just 4-4 with a rest advantage and 0-6 against the spread (ATS) as a road favorite. The Bulls are also just 8-9 against teams below .500.
In short, this is a fade on Chicago versus faith in Orlando. The Magic are a young team and should be able to play well despite having no rest. Orlando is also 3-1 ATS in its last four home games. Another key stat is rebounding. The Magic have a 50.4 rebounding percentage at home while the Bulls are at 48.2 percent. Take the Magic on the NBA lines’ spread.
Pick: Orlando Magic +3½ (-110)
Coyotes (+110) vs Ducks
- Total: Over 6 (-115), Under 6 (-105)
- Day/Time: Saturday, Jan. 28, 10:30 p.m. ET
- Stream: BAZX, NHL TV
Whether Gary Bettman believes it, tanking does exist in the NHL. Well, at least inadvertently. Anaheim made a few off-season moves to contend but is worse than it was last season. The Ducks are in the bottom three in the NHL in most categories and that includes being last with a -81 goal differential.
I think Connor Bedard would fit perfectly in this @AnaheimDucks dressing room 😊💪 Welcome to Southern California! pic.twitter.com/cI6FZsArAG

Anaheim should be a favorite to land Connor Bedard. Meanwhile, a fellow also-ran in Arizona is not as bad as folks believed. It’s upset the likes of St. Louis and Vegas. While the Coyotes lost to the Ducks recently, it still has an edge in goal. Every losing skid ends at some point and the Coyotes will snap theirs on the road. Take them on the NHL betting lines.
Pick: Arizona Coyotes +110
Parlay: Orlando Magic ML, Arizona Coyotes ML, and Cincinnati Bengals ML (+701)
