One of the absolute best things about FanDuel has been the addition of the Same Game Parlay. The Same Game Parlay allows users to parlay game bets, like spread, moneyline and total, with player and game props from one game.
There are three bets for the Saturday Night game that I have my eyes on, and I’m going to take advantage of FanDuel’s generosity and package them in a 3-leg parlay to try and win big.
3-Leg Parlay @ +930 - $50 Bet Wins $464
Leg 1: Under 49.5 @ -106
I really like this play. The Dolphins have averaged 20.2 points per game over the last five games. Tua has been relatively efficient, but he’s not put up massive numbers or massive points. The Dolphins are good, but very little of it has to do with their offense.
Meanwhile, the Raiders are starting Derek Carr at QB, who is coming off an injury and is less than 100%. The Dolphins defense has been playing extremely well. The only team that’s had offensive success on them of late is the Chiefs, and even they turned the ball over and struggled at first.
I’m expecting a back and forth ugly game that the Dolphins end up pulling out in the end.
Leg 2: Miami Dolphins -2.5 @ -110
The Raiders are lost. They’ve lost four of their last five and their only win is a last-second Hail Mary to beat the then winless Jets. Derek Carr is hobbled and the Dolphins have the far superior defense. I’m not sure there is a team in the NFL that I’d feel confident in the Raiders beating right now, and Miami is playing great football of late.
Add to all that the fact that Miami is the league’s best team against the spread and Vegas is 7-7 ATS, and I think this one is kind of a no brainer. Two teams headed in opposite direction and a spread of less than 3 points? I’ll take the Dolphins.
Leg 3: Mike Gesicki Anytime TD Scorer @ +190
Gesicki has four touchdowns in his last three games and you can get him here at almost 2/1 to score. That’s great value. Tua Tagovailoa has used Gesicki as a security blanket in the red zone, finding his massive tight end with regularity.
Gesicki has quietly been one of the strongest tight ends in the NFL this season, and his price here is too good to ignore. I don’t expect a lot of points in this game, but I do think there’s a good chance that Tua will be looking Gesicki’s way when they’re near the endzone.
