nfl Same game parlay STRATEGY

The key to long-term profitability in SGP betting is correlation. Getting the broad story of a game correct makes it easier to hit a parlay, as you’re not cheering for disparate and potentially even contradictory things to happen. When reviewing winning SGP tickets, we can think backward and determine what game-script ideas and correlations went into constructing the parlay.

Lions at Cowboys presents us with what should be one of the higher-scoring games of the season. The over/under for this game is one of the highest we have seen all year. Bettors should be licking their chops with many overs to target in player props, as this game environment sets up for extreme offensive success for both teams.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott Props

This is the perfect bounce-back spot for Prescott and the Cowboys as they head home after a disappointing road loss to the Dolphins. Dak is slated to face a defense with its share of issues defending the pass.

At home this season, Prescott has completed 74.0% of his passes (second) for 8.5 yards per attempt (fifth), with 20 touchdown passes (first) and just two interceptions. Since their Week 9 bye, the Lions are allowing 8.4 yards per pass attempt, which is 30th in the league. They have allowed a 5.8% touchdown rate over that period, 28th in the league. Here are where his passing props sit:

  • Over passing yards
  • Over passing touchdowns
  • Over passing attempts
  • Over completions

Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb Alt Receiving Yards

Even with the Dallas offense mostly struggling last week, Lamb still managed to produce, securing six of 10 targets for 118 yards and a touchdown. He also added 14 rushing yards. Since the Cowboys Week 7 bye, Lamb leads all wide receivers in targets per game (12.1), ranking second in receptions per game (8.3) and second in receiving yards per game (105.4). His eight receiving touchdowns are second in the league.

Lamb also has 80 rushing yards and two touchdowns over that span. Only Jayden Reed and Deebo Samuel have more rushing yards than Lamb among wide receivers over that period.

Over their past seven games, the Lions’ defense has become a pass funnel. Playing tough against the run but surrendering a ton of WR production. During this period, the Lions have allowed 193.0 yards per game to opposing wide receivers (29th). Wideouts against them have secured 65.5% of their targets (24th) with 1.6 touchdowns per game (30th) over that stretch.

If you’re into trends, it’s interesting to note that Lamb has seven games this year of 110+ receiving yards, while the rest of his games failed to eclipse 77 yards. If I were betting on Lamb to have a big game here, it’s worth considering betting on his alternate yards of 110+ instead of betting him over the regular prop number.

Lions RB Jahmyr Gibbs Rushing Props

Even while still playing in a backfield split, Gibbs closed last week’s game with 19 touches for 100 yards and two touchdowns. Fellow RB David Montgomery ended the game with 19 touches for 69 yards and a touchdown. It’s been an even split for this backfield for some time. The touch counts end up similarly here at the end of each week. However, Gibbs offers more efficiency. Since the team’s Week 9 bye, Montgomery has 111 touches for 576 yards and five touchdowns. Gibbs has 101 touches for 624 yards and eight touchdowns.

Detroit’s rushing attack has been elite this year, as their backs have combined to average 5.0 yards per carry (second in the league). Now enter the elite rushing matchup that Gibbs will get against this Dallas front, sincerely missing their best-run stuffer, Jonathan Hankins. The Cowboys are dead last in the NFL regarding rushing defense by success rate in 2023. Even as an underdog, Gibbs should have some huge runs in this game.

  • Over rushing yards
  • to score a touchdown
  • Over longest rush
  • Over rushing and receiving yards
