Patriots vs. Bears: Same Game Parlay

Where’s The Action?

Over at BetMGM Sportsbook, 73% of the spread handle and 63% of the total bets, respectively, are on the home favorite. Regarding the total (), the over is garnering interest from both 69% of the overall handle and 68% of the tickets.

As for the variety of props available, the Patriots’ top playmakers are receiving plenty of support as well. The most bet props at BetMGM are Rhamondre Stevenson to score the first touchdown (+400), Jakobi Meyers to deliver an anytime TD (+250), and David Montgomery to tally under 50.5 rushing yards (-110).

Are any of those markets worth a look for a same game parlay (SGP)? For the record, this wager won’t appear on my betting card, yet these legs certainly correlate with one another.

Potential Same Game Parlay

Depending on how you handicap games, key numbers may not factor into your strategy. However, I can’t back New England as more than a touchdown favorite against the spread. But there are other ways to back Bill Belichick’s team.

As I discussed in my betting guide for this game, Matt Eberflus’ defense has surrendered the league’s ninth-highest Rushing EPA. Given the fact that New England boasts one of the NFL’s top rushing attacks, look for Belichick and his staff to exploit that.

But with Damien Harris back in the mix, neither he nor Rhamondre Stevenson’s rushing yardage prop is worth wagering on.

However, we can approach the Patriots’ positive game script via a different route. No matter which running back manufactures the best performance, second-year quarterback Mac Jones likely won’t have to do much through the air — especially if Zappe gets time. His passing yards prop (215.5) is a bit inflated if New England winds up dominating with its tailbacks.

As for the second leg of this same game parlay, let’s take a look at Chicago’s backfield. Even though New England has been susceptible on the ground, Justin Fields & Co. may trail throughout.

Considering Khalil Herbert is still fairly involved in Bears’ game plan (40.2% snap rate), the aforementioned Montgomery is unlikely to generate much success on the ground. While it’s a popular bet, Montgomery going under his rushing yards prop seems like a safe proposition.

Utilizing DraftKings Sportsbook, a same game parlay with Jones (219.5) and Montgomery (54.5) unders comes out to +200. Good luck with your Monday Night Football bets.
