With the expansion of legalized betting, an expansion of options has come, and one particular type of bet has taken off in popularity. Involving both straight wagers (spreads, totals, money lines) and prop bets (yardage, touchdown scorers), the Same Game Parlay allows you to bet on multiple events within the same game; with the payout featuring often great odds.
Let’s take a look at one in the Bengals vs. Chiefs matchup that I have my eye on.
Leg #1. Anytime TD Scorer: Tyreek Hill
With two touchdowns through two games so far this postseason, I see no reason for Hill to stop now behind an offense that’s put up 42 points in both of those games. Include the added option of this converting on a punt return, and I like for Hill, who has the second-best odds on the board at -120, to find pay dirt once again in this one.
Leg #2. Anytime TD Scorer: Ja’Marr Chase
Chase has had a monster rookie season that will likely put him #2 in the Offensive Rookie of the Year conversation, with one game sticking out more than the rest, vs. the Chiefs. In the early January win for the Bengals, Chase put up 23% of his season’s receiving yards to go along with three touchdowns.
This is the same Chiefs’ secondary that allowed four touchdowns through the air last week vs. Buffalo. Look for the Burrow-Chase connection to be alive and well in this one.
Leg #3. Chiefs to Win
While I certainly don’t think the Bengals will get routed in this one like many pundits and fans alike are calling for, I do think the big-game experience of this Chiefs team will be just too much to overcome. I expect a slow start from the Chiefs following last week’s dramatic OT thriller but for them to do enough late to narrowly pull this one out.
