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 Wild Card Round game between Cleveland and Pittsburgh 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 @ +685 - $50 bet wins $342
Leg 1: Nick Chubb Anytime TD Scorer @ +105
Chubb has 12 rushing touchdowns on the year, and more importantly he’s scored a touchdown in six straight games. In his last eight games, he’s rushed for eight touchdowns. Getting Chubb at better-than-even odds here is a gift.
The Browns are going to rely heavily on their run game today, as they have all season, and I can’t really see a way Chubb doesn’t find the endzone. Last week, against this same defense, Chubb rushed for 7.7 yards per carry on his way to a touchdown and 108 yards.
Leg 2: Ben Roethlisberger Under 283.5 Passing Yards @ -112
The Steelers basically refuse to run the ball at this point of the season, so this may sound counterintuitive, but I think we’re going to see more of a defensive battle on Sunday than anything.
Roethlisberger has played in 15 games this season and he’s thrown for fewer than 283 yards in 10 of them. The only time Roethlisberger played against the Browns this season, Pittsburgh won in a 38-7 blowout. But, Roethlisberger threw for a season-low 162 yards in that one.
Leg 3: Under 47.5 @ -106
I expect an old school, ground and pound AFC North contest in this one. Now Pittsburgh won’t be running much, but they will dink and dunk down the field and have very few opportunities for the big play.
It’s going to be a brisk, cold night in Pittsburgh and points are going to be hard to come by. Last week, this game ended at 24-22 and I think we should see a similar score in the final game of the Wild Card Round.
