Matt O'Leary is taking a look at a same-game parlay for the Cincinnati Bengals vs Las Vegas Raiders Wild Card matchup.

Cincinnati Bengals vs. Las Vegas Raiders SGP: Cashing in on the Burrow and Chase Connection With SI Sportsbook

Something about Wild Card weekend is just special. You have wall-to-wall football for two straight days to get the playoffs started, and it begins on Saturday at 4:35 pm ET with the Cincinnati Bengals hosting the Las Vegas Raiders.

For this matchup between the 10-7 Bengals and the 10-7 Raiders, I'm looking at a +220 same-game parlay with SI Sportsbook to cash in on.

Leg 1: Raiders +5.5

The Las Vegas Raiders are coming off a wild win over the Los Angeles Chargers to get them into the playoffs and now will travel to Cincinnati for the Wild Card round. In Week 11 these two teams played and the Bengals blew them out 32-13. For Vegas, that was in the midst of their cold streak where they just went 3-7 after starting the season 3-0. Well, now they've won four games in a row and are playing their best football of the season.

I'm not sold on them going into Cincy and winning outright, although I wouldn't put it past them, but 5.5 sounds like too big of a number for me. As an away underdog this year, the Raiders are 4-2 covering 66.7 percent of the time. The Bengals are just 2-3 as a home favorite and haven't won a playoff game in my lifetime. Take the Raiders getting points.

Leg 2: Ja'Marr Chase 60+ receiving yards

Ja'Marr Chase had himself the best season for a rookie wide receiver ever with 1,455 yards and 13 touchdowns. He's averaging 85.6 yards per game and has cleared the 60 number nine times during the season. With how this game should play out, I anticipate a close back and forth game, I'd imagine the Bengals using a heavy dosage of their best weapon. In Week 11 he was held to just three catches and 32 yards on only six targets. While the Raiders pass defense has been steady this year, I'm not sure they have enough to keep Chase under 60 the second time around.

Leg 3: Joe Burrow 230+ passing yards

The Cincinnati Bengals are hoping that Joe Burrow has a little more playoff luck than Andy Dalton who wasn't able to get this team over the hump. Burrow has been excellent this year and the last two times we saw him he went for 446 and 525. Granted, while another 400 yard game in a row seems unlikely, I do anticipate him to clear 230.

The reason I talked myself out of 255+ is because the last time these two teams played he only threw for 148 yards on 29 attempts. Sure, a big reason why was because of the score (32-13) he wasn't asked to do a lot but the Raiders on average are only allowing 222.9 yards against through the air. We might not get a huge performance but in crunch time, I have faith Burrow gets it done and clears the number.
