Same Game Parlay SNF Week 18

As we conclude the NFL’s regular season, we have two NFC North teams—the Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions squaring off.

Both teams have a path to the postseason, making it all the more exciting.

  • Packers: Win, and they get the No. 7 seed.
  • Lions: Win, and Los Angeles Rams beat or tie with the Seattle Seahawks, and they get the No. 7 seed.

This is a massively important game. 

Below, we’ve created a three-leg Same Game Parlay for this game using odds from DraftKings Sportsbook. The odds here are +400, and you can get this now and receive a $1,000 deposit bonus if you’ve never played at DraftKings before.

With that, let’s dive into this parlay. 

Green Bay Packers vs. Detroit Lions SGP: +400

Pick: Packer -4.5 (-110)

As we head into this game, two teams with offenses are putting up points. 

The Lions have had success scoring this season, scoring 30+ points eight times, whereas the Packers have scored 24 points or more in five straight games. 

A big part of the Packers success has been their running game with Aaron Jones, A.J. Dillon, and, to a lesser extent, Patrick Taylor Jr. 

This is important because the Lions have a run defense allowing 149.3 rushing yards per game this season and 190 rushing yards per game over the last three weeks. 

The Lions have succeeded on the ground, with Jamaal Williams finding the end zone. Still, quarterback Jared Goff hasn’t thrown for less than 252 passing yards since Week 13 and has attempted less than 37 passes just once since Week 12. 

While Goff has had this success, the Packers are allowing under 200 passing yards per game and just over 207 per game over the last three weeks. 

Look for the Packers to run successfully here and put the Lions away at home.

Pick: Aaron Jones Over 69.5 Rushing Yards (+120) 

Over the last few weeks, Jones has been dealing with some injuries. Over the previous four weeks, Jones had less than 10 rush attempts twice but saw 14 in Week 17 and 17 in Week 15. 

Jones had no less than 90 rushing yards in those games where he had double-digit carries. 

As mentioned above, the Lions are getting gouged on the ground, allowing 190 rushing yards per game over the last three weeks. 

Jones is on the injury report again this week with a leg injury, but he also has a line of -180 to score a touchdown.

With all of that in mind, 70+ rushing yards is a no-brainer. 

Pick: Over 49.5 Points (-110)

With a total close to 50 points, this could seem high for a game featuring the Lions and Packers, but as we mentioned above, these teams have been rolling as of late.

The Lions have scored 30+ points eight times this year, and the Packers have scored 24 points or more in five straight games. 

The Packers will be able to run successfully against the Lions, and the Lions pass-happy approach will result in points regardless of the Packers passing defense numbers. 

Both teams should finish well inside the 20s. It’ll be pretty cold on Sunday with a low of 21 degrees, but that’s practically summer weather in Green Bay.

It would be better if they were in the Ford Field dome, but unless the weather vastly changes and everything is clear, both offenses should keep firing.
