With the playoff picture shaping up, Monday Night Football in Week 17 features two teams, the Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals, who are both vying for the No. 1 seed.
The Bills currently hold the No. 1 spot, but with a win tonight, the Bengals climb to the No. 2 seed and would need a win in Week 18 and a Kansas City Chiefs loss to take the No. 1 spot.
Here, we’ve constructed a three-leg Same Game Parlay over at DraftKings Sportsbook with odds of +675. You can bet on this right now and receive a $1,000 deposit bonus when you click our link and sign up for a new account.
Let’s dive into the parlay.
On the road, the Bills are favored, and based on the Bengals recent defensive performance, we can see why.
The Bengals have been excellent against the run over their last three games, not allowing a single rushing score and holding teams to under 75 yards rushing.
However, through the air, they’ve allowed two touchdowns per game and nearly 270 passing yards.
Bills quarterback Josh Allen has three rushing touchdowns over his last five games and multiple touchdowns passes in four of his previous five games.
Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow has also been excellent at passing the ball, posting 16 touchdowns over his last six games. Still, he also has six interceptions in that stretch. Meanwhile, over his previous six games, Allen has just three interceptions.
This should be a higher-scoring matchup and may come down to whoever has the ball last.
The Bills and Allen narrowly escape with a win here to keep their No. 1 seed hopes alive.
A big part of the Bills winnings this game will be the passing attack, and who better to look to than Diggs?
It’s been a rough stretch for the Bills No. 1 option, posting no more than 60 receiving yards over his last three games and failing to find the end zone. He’s only eclipsed three receptions in one of his previous three games.
However, Diggs should bounce back against a Bengals defense allowing nearly 270 passing yards per game over the last three weeks. On the outside, he’ll matchup primarily with Bengals rookie cornerback Cam Taylor-Britt. Taylor-Britt has allowed 13 receptions over his last three games, including touchdowns in back-to-back games.
With a total nearing 50, Diggs should be in a great spot to score for the first time in three games.
We looked at the Bills No. 1 option, and now we’ll look to the Bengals No. 1 guy.
Chase will lineup mostly across from Dane Jackson, who hasn’t been targeted much in his last two games, but if you go back to Week 14 against the New York Jets, he allowed six catches on 11 targets for 89 yards.
He’s allowed three touchdowns this year, but against Chase, he should be in for a long evening.
Whenever Jackson is targeted five times or more, he’s allowed a reception rate of 60% or higher on all but two occasions.
Chase has seen fewer than 11 targets over his last three games and will continue to get fed here at home in a solid matchup.
