Same game parlays are built for prime time football. It's going to be the only game we're going to be watching, so why not have a little bit of fun?
Remember, parlays have a lower chance of hitting compared to normal bets, so I'd suggest wagering less money than you would on other types of bets.
But, with that being said, let's take a look at my favorite same game parlay for the Sunday Night Football showdown between the Miami Dolphins and Los Angeles Chargers.
Best Same Game Parlay for Dolphins vs. Chargers
- Dolphins moneyline
- Alternate total OVER 44.5
- Raheem Mostert 40+ rushing yards
- Austin Ekeler 40+ receiving yards
- Tyreek Hill Anytime TD
The Dolphins are listed as 3.5-point favorites, but I don't want to mess around with any point spread when it comes to the same game parlay. Let's try to play it a little bit more safe and just take the Dolphins to win outright.
This is a meeting between the team that ranks 4th in net yards per play and the team that ranks 30th. Statistically, this is a mismatch that I expect the Dolphins to win.
Alternate total OVER 44.5
The Chargers and Dolphins have an average combined points per game of 49.2. Instead of risking the parlay on the normal set total of 54.5, let's bring it all the way down to 44.5 and chalk this leg of a parlay up as simply an odds booster.
Raheem Mostert 40+ rushing yards
I'm all over Raheem Mostert in every which way this game. The Chargers rank dead last in the NFL in opponent yards per carry, giving up an average of 5.4 yards per snap. As long as Mostert gets the carries, which I suspect he will based on his snap count last week, he should thrive in this matchup against the Los Angeles defense.
Austin Ekeler 40+ receiving yards
Austin Ekeler is averaging 47 receiving yards per game, so we're well within his range for him to go over 40 on Sunday Night Football. The Dolphins secondary has allowed the second fewest yards per pass attempt over their last three games, so the Chargers may rely on several dump offs and screens to Ekeler to get their pass game going.
Ekeler has hit over 40 receiving yards for two straight games, so let's make it three straight tonight.
Tyreek Hill Anytime TD
Tyreek Hill has had a nose for the end zone lately, scoring a touchdown in three of his last four games. He's also coming off a 14 target, nine reception, 146 yard game against the San Francisco 49ers. With no Derwin James for the Chargers, Hill is going to find openings in the Chargers secondary.
He's the betting favorite to find the end zone for the Dolphins, so betting on him to score is a nice little cherry on top for our parlay.
