Same Game Parlay Picks: Fade The Bears on Sunday Night Football

It’s Sunday Night Football! Matthew Stafford and the Rams with their Super Bowl aspirations are taking on...Andy Dalton and the Chicago Bears? Yes, this game isn’t that appealing for a national audience, especially with Dalton at quarterback, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t make you some money on a same game parlay.

When looking at this matchup between the Rams and the Bears, this one has blowout potential written all over it. The reason being, that Rams defense.

Los Angeles allowed only 190.7 yards per game passing. They also allowed the fewest touchdowns per game with just 17 coming through the air. That’s a nightmare for Chicago who will be electing to start the veteran Dalton.

In the 11 games he started for Dallas last season, their offense put up under 20 points five times. Clearly, he’s on a new team and circumstances change, but is anyone going to argue that the Bears have better weapons around the QB than the Cowboys?

It gets worse when you look at the defensive side of the ball and see that their starting two corners will be Jaylon Johnson, who struggled as a rookie, and Kindle Vildor on the other side. He started just one game last year as a fifth rounder from the 2020 draft class.

The inexperience at CB going against one of the most innovative play callers in the sport, sounds like a recipe for disaster. The Rams -8.5 is the first leg of this same game parlay.

As for part two, we’re going to go back to the Bears offense for a second. Their best weapon is clearly Allen Robinson. He still managed to put up over 1,200 yards and six scores with poor play at the QB position last year.

But he has a very tough task in front of him for this game against the Rams. The biggest reason they allowed so few passing yards was Jalen Ramsey. In 2020, he held receivers to just 345 yards and two TD’s on the season. Only twice did he give up more than 50 yards receiving in a game and never more than 81.

In the game last year, Allen Robinson was able to gain 70 yards against this Rams defense but a repeat performance on opening night sounds unlikely. For leg number two of the parlay we’re going with the under on receiving yards at 69.5 for Robinson.

According to DraftKings, this will get you at +240 for this to hit. Based on what we saw last year, the Bears should struggle to move the ball offensively which should indicate a Rams cover and a long night for Allen Robinson and company.

Same Game Parlay Pick: Rams -8.5 & Allen Robinson under 69.5 receiving yards @ +240
