Matt O'Leary tries his luck with three parlays for the conference championship games this weekend.

NFL Picks and Parlays: Top Parlay Picks For Conference Championship Games

We're down to four teams remaining to decide the champion of the 2021 season in the NFL. This Sunday, the Chiefs, Bengals, 49ers, and Rams will battle it out to decide who goes to the Super Bowl. It should be a great day of football.

Cincy and San Fran are two teams who upset the one seed in the divisional round and have been a fun watch come playoff time. As for the Chiefs and the Rams, well they were popular preseason picks, and for good reason.

Let's take a look at my three parlays for the Conference Championship games this weekend.

Joe Burrow + Patrick Mahomes 275+ Passing Yards (+160) (Bet $100 to win $160)

Oh man, the Chiefs vs Bills lived up to the hype in the divisional round. I'm not sure you can replicate that but one thing I'm pretty confident in is the Chiefs and Bengals throwing it all over the yard. Over the Bengals last seven games, Joe Burrow has gone over 300 yards five times. Over the regular season, he was averaging 288.2 yards per game, plus these two teams played already. When the Bengals upset the Chiefs in Week 17, Burrow went for 446 yards and four touchdowns. 275 almost feels conservative.

Patrick Mahomes is a similar story. In both playoff games, he went over 375 yards but when he played Cincy in Week 17, he threw for just 259. I'd imagine in the pace of this game he'd be throwing more than 35 times which is where he was at in their regular season matchup.

Deebo Samuel + Tyler Higbee Anytime Touchdown Scorer (+450) (Bet $100 to win $450)

The NFC Conference Championship is a divisional game, so we're getting two teams who see each other a lot already. Starting with Deebo Samuel, he's an absolute freak. He's a running back, he's a wide receiver, and Kyle Shanahan and Mike McDaniel have him do everything in their offense. In the two games these teams have played this year, Deebo has thrown for a touchdown, rushed for one, and caught two. The moral of the story, he is always very involved in the offense and is likely a safe bet to get into the endzone after the 49ers offense was held out of the endzone last week.

With Tyler Higbee, he has three touchdowns in the two games that the 49ers and Rams played this year. Higbee hasn't gotten into the endzone in the playoffs yet but he has still gotten his targets. Last week against Tampa Bay, Higbee was targetted seven times. Matthew Stafford is comfortable with him and it seems like a matter of when and not if his scoreless streak comes to an end.

Bengals +7 + Rams -3.5 (+264) (Bet $100 to win $264)

The final parlay is against the spread picks for both games. We'll start with the Bengals who are 6-0 against the spread in their last six games including an upset win over the Chiefs back in Week 17. Now, I'm not gutsy enough to take Cincy on the moneyline but I do think they keep this one close. Kansas City has struggled to cover big numbers in the past, and as a road underdog they are 5-1 on the season.

As for the Rams, here's the logic it's very simple. It's tough to beat a team three times in one year. So far, the 49ers have beaten the Rams twice in the regular season. One was a blowout and the other was a wild Week 18 overtime win. I think the Rams get the job done at home and get back to the Super Bowl.
