Broncos – Seahawks Same Game Parlay
For starters, be sure to check out the factors that make up a same game parlay (SGP) if you’re unfamiliar with this type of bet. Essentially, the end goal is to place multiple bets from the same game into one single parlay.
In regards to the point spread, the Broncos initially opened as a four-point road favorite when opening lines were released in May. But the betting market has bumped them up to after reaching as high as -7 on Sunday night.
On top of that, the total has been bet up to . It was initially set at 41.5 (-115 towards the over).
Should you consider either of them in a SGP, along with select player props? For the record, this wager isn’t going on my betting card, but these markets certainly correlate with one another.
Same Game Parlay Options
Focusing on DraftKings Sportsbook in particular, let’s begin with the spread. Although Denver is clearly the superior team (per my NFL power ratings), this line is a bit inflated. The acquisition of Russell Wilson boosted its regular season win total by three victories, yet the betting market isn’t considering the presumption that this team may take time to gel with a brand-new coaching staff and signal caller, respectively.
Plus, the Seahawks — led by Geno Smith’s noodle arm — project to have one of the league’s worst offenses. Mind you, Smith’s dropback EPA ranked No. 26 last season among quarterbacks with at least 100 snaps. He’ll be up against a top-10 secondary, assuming the pieces fit within Ejiro Evero’s 3-4 scheme.
Combine those those variables, and there’s value towards integrating the full-game under (43.5) as the first leg of your SGP.
Next up, given the line, sportsbooks’ player prop prices are heavily shaded towards the Broncos. However, first-year coach Nathaniel Hackett operated the NFL’s slowest offensive pace during his stint as the Packers’ offensive coordinator. On the flip side, Seattle will want to utilize a similar game plan if it expects to keep this one close.
Assuming this script manifests itself on Monday Night Football, it lends itself towards some overinflated player props, as well as correlating with the aforementioned total.
Hence, Denver wide receiver Courtland Sutton is worth a look to the under on his receiving yards prop (64.5) as the other SGP leg. He’ll likely be matched up against Seattle cornerback Sidney Jones, too, who represents the toughest test in the Seahawks’ secondary.
This SGP is priced at +210 on DraftKings, and there’s also an opportunity for an odds boost on it. More information is below.
