Indianapolis Colts vs. Arizona Cardinals Same-Game Parlay: Enhance Your Christmas With This Bet

Indianapolis Colts vs. Arizona Cardinals Same-Game Parlay Pick: +185

  • Leg 1: Jonathan Taylor 85+ Rush Yards
  • Leg 2: Jonathan Taylor Anytime TD
  • Leg 3: Zach Ertz 40+ Receiving Yards

Leg 1 and Leg 2

Let's start off by talking about both of the Jonathan Taylor plays here. Taylor has unarguably been the best running back in football this season. Not only has he kept an inconsistent Colts team offensively effective, but he's also put himself into MVP contention.

Let's take a look at some of the numbers he's put up recently:

  • 29-170-1 vs. NE
  • 32-142-2 vs. HOU
  • 16-83-1 vs. TB
  • 32-185-4 vs. BUF
  • 21-116-1 vs. JAX

Over the last five weeks, this is absolutely insane production. The only time he missed this number was in their loss to Tampa, who has had an elite rush defense for the last couple years, and yet he still only fell 2 yards short. Additionally, the Bills were a top-three rush defense before being absolutely exposed by Taylor. 

In each of these five games, he scored a touchdown, and he actually leads the league with 17 this season, averaging over a touchdown per game. The Cardinals rush defense hasn't been great this year, they just allowed a 112-yard game to Craig Reynolds, a player most didn't know existed before last week.

Leg 3

Flipping over to the other side of the ball, we have the recently-traded Zach Ertz taking on a relatively tough Colts team. Since joining the team, Ertz has had a relatively successful season helping out his new team. In the eight weeks since he's joined the Cardinals, he's gone over 40 yards in six of them, and additionally, he has seen 5+ targets in six of eight. 

Over the last two games, Ertz has really established himself as an even bigger target in this offense, especially with the injury to DeAndre Hopkins. In those two games, he's gone 6-74 and 5-42, seeing 7 and 11 targets in those games, respectively. Due to injury, Kyler Murray has seemingly become more of a pocket passer over these last couple weeks, and Ertz has clearly stepped up as one of his favorite targets.
