The Monday night Football double-headers are back in NFL Week 3 with matchups between the Philadelphia Eagles and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, plus the Los Angeles Rams and Cincinnati Bengals.
Here, we have assembled same-game parlays with our favorite picks, including player props, for each of these matchups. Let's take a look at what they are.
The Buccaneers have defied pre-season expectations and are 2-0 straight-up and 2-0 against the spread. They’ve played impressive football on both sides and have already a 13-win team from a year ago, the Minnesota Vikings, and a popular sleeper pick, the Chicago Bears.
The Eagles are also 2-0 but have not gotten there convincingly. They looked sloppy and out of sync in their Week 1 win against the New England Patriots and then, despite generating four turnovers against the Vikings in Week 2, couldn’t cover a 6.5-point spread.
Part of the Eagles’ struggle to generate solid performances (despite their record) is their shoddy pass defense. Avonte Maddox and Zech McPherson are both on IR, and James Bradberry and Reed Blankenship are banged up. Those are troubling signs for a secondary that has allowed the second-most passing yards per game thus far (326.0)
Enter: Baker Mayfield. The former first-overall pick has bounced around since flaming out in Cleveland but may have found a home in Tampa. He threw for 317 yards against the Bears last week and is sixth in passer rating.
Hurts scored a pair of touchdowns on the ground last week as the infamous “tush push” is still working as well as ever.
The Bucs’ defense has been stout thus far, but Hurts is a near-lock to get a few opportunities near the goal line if he gets his team in position.

The Rams have been better than advertised to start the season. They won on the road in Week 1 against the Seattle Seahawks and came within seven points of the Super Bowl-favorite San Francisco 49ers in Week 2.
Matthew Stafford is throwing for more than 320 yards per game, and the defense has elevated its play from last year. The Bengals will likely either be without Joe Burrow or with a very damaged version of their star QB, which makes us lean toward the Rams.
We don’t think there will be many points scored, but the alternate line gives this bet more breathing room. An absent or injured Burrow will significantly hinder Cincy’s offense, and the Rams, despite starting well, don’t have one of the top offenses in the league.
Placing the line at 51.5 points accounts for popular scores such as 27-24 or 31-20. The regular line is only at 44 points, and the -275 odds of this line as a standalone leg suggest there’s over a 73% chance it hits (based on implied probability).
LA traded running back Cam Akers to the Vikings earlier this week and is going all-in on Kyren Williams. The second-year pro scored two touchdowns in each of the first two games of the year and now faces a Cincy squad that allowed 24 and 27 points to start the year.
Williams is yet to break 52 yards rushing, but his volume around the goal line ensures that he’ll always be in with a chance to score when the Rams enter the red zone.
