TNF Same Game Parlay Strategy
Normally, I’d build two different parlays based around each team winning the game outright. If you’re picking Houston to win this one, you might want to go buy a Powerball ticket, too.
The Eagles scoring distribution this season is a bizarre one. 126 of their total 196 points have been scored in second quarters this season (64.3%) in what’s becoming a flash fry trend. To capitalize on this, FanDuel’s first half spread for the Eagles is 7.5 (+100)– a strong first leg of the parlay to get it to +400 or higher. That’s about the only piece of the Eagles offense I’m looking for in this game.
While the matchup between Philly’s ultra-efficient offense– particularly on the ground– is exciting, markets are already way ahead of that. Houston rosters the last-ranked rushing defense in the league. That was put on full display last week when they gave up over 200 yards to Derrick Henry.
Instead, I’d like to focus on the Eagles’ defense, which is an even bigger mismatch to the Texans’ offense. The Texans OL is allowing the third-highest pressure rate, the 10th-least adjusted line yards, and the third-lowest overall success rate in the NFL. Led by Jordan Davis and a downright nasty defensive front (now bolstered by Robert Quinn), the Eagles are first in pass rush win rate and first in turnovers forced.
Under this kind of pressure and on primetime, I cannot trust Davis Mills. The other two legs of the parlay are Mills under 218.5 passing yards (-114) and the game total under 44.5 (-110). Overall, the SGP comes out to +515.
Finding correlations and actionable trends in teams helps boost the rest of your parlay legs. Good luck with your TNF same game parlays!
