Two of the oddsmakers’ top five choices to make the Super Bowl are going head-to-head on Sunday Night Football when the Miami Dolphins hit the City of Brotherly Love for a date with the Philadelphia Eagles. And to make it even better, we’ve put together a same-game parlay for the high-stakes matchup.
The Dolphins lead the league in scoring and are coming off consecutive victories, while the Eagles were handed their first loss of the season last week against the New York Jets.
Here are our best bets and favorite parlay picks for what has “game of the year” potential.
From the top! Hurts has five rushing touchdowns and has scored with his legs in four of six contests, including each of the last two. The Dolphins’ defensive line is also significantly worse than the Eagles’ offensive line, and nobody can stop the tush push. Philly’s path to victory comes from controlling the clock, and running the ball will allow them to do just that.
Going by the same logic, Swift is the Eagles’ top back and should feature heavily with the intent of keeping Miami’s dynamic offense off the field. He was held to 18 yards last week but went over in three of four beforehand and averaged 107.8 yards per game in the process.
Tua, the MVP frontrunner, has thrown for at least 250 yards in five of six outings—the one he didn’t was against the New England Patriots, and he went for 249. Philly has a bottom-10 pass defense and has several players that are beat up or flat-out injured.
Once again following that train of thought, Tyreek Hill should be in for a big day. He’s hit the over on this line four times in six games, and the two times he didn’t were against a strong Buffalo Bills defense and a New England Patriots team that was willing to sell out and leave other places of the field open just to stop him. He’s averaging 135.7 yards per game and is the most explosive player in the league.
This is a primetime matchup, and the regular line of 51.5 is the highest of the week. The under has hit in nearly 61% of NFL games this season, so we bumped it down to provide extra breathing space. But these offenses are too good, and Miami in particular has a suspect defense, which sets this up to have a lot of points.
