Parlay NFL TNF Week 2 Vikings vs Eagles
  • Philadelphia Eagles -6.5 (-125)
  • DeVonta Smith Over 5.5 Receptions (+112)
  • Justin Jefferson Over 94.5 Receiving Yards (-114)
  • Jalen Hurts Anytime Touchdown (-120)

Combined Odds +1204 via FanDuel Sportsbook

Week two in the NFL starts with a bang as the Vikings and the Eagles face off on Thursday night. Minnesota will look to right their wrongs from week one with a bounce-back performance over the defending NFC conference champions.

After winning the NFC North in 2022, the Vikings started the new season with a questionable loss to an unfamiliar Baker Mayfield and the Buccaneers. 

A lot of defensive injuries on both teams suggest that this could be a high-scoring affair between some of the best talent in the league. Minnesota comes into this one as a seven-point underdog looking to prove their worth. 

Same Game Parlays can be tough, but we’ve got one for you and a breakdown of every leg. 

Philadelphia Eagles -6.5 (-125 at FanDuel Sportsbook)

The Eagles have many strong points to their team and can quickly move the ball. A lot of their production comes from the legs of Jalen Hurts, but the rest comes from his arm talent and availability to spread the ball around to many different receivers. 

In 2022, the Eagles had the second-highest points per game, only behind the Super Bowl winners, the Kansas City Chiefs. When Hurts, A.J. Brown and the rest of this offense are firing on all cylinders, they are potentially the most dangerous all-around team in the league. 

While the Eagles did not look that great last week, they came together to get a hard-fought win. However, the same cannot be said about Minnesota, as they lost to Tampa Bay. 

This game should go somewhat the same as Kirk Cousins has failed to perform well in most prime-time games. Without Justin Jefferson, this team would be in shambles. That’s why we think the Alternate -6.5 spread for the Eagles is the safe way to go. 

DeVonta Smith Over 5.5 Receptions (+112 at FanDuel Sportsbook)

In 2022, DeVonta Smith shined brighter than ever. The massive complement of A.J. Brown on the other side of the line really helped Smith show what he can do with more opportunities. 

In that season, Smith had just under 2,000 receiving yards and seven touchdowns. He also averaged just over 5.5 catches per game. Smith now has a clear WR2 role on one of the best teams in the league that continues to grow in every aspect of the game. 

The Eagles selected the former Alabama standout with the 10th pick in 2021. With this offense growing every season, Smith's skill set and usage are expected to grow increasingly as time goes on. 

This is a perfect matchup for Smith, given the fact that he should be lined up against second-year cornerback Akayleb Evans. We Don’t think Evans will be able to lock down anyone in this game. 

Justin Jefferson Over 94.5 Receiving yards (-114 at FanDuel Sportsbook)

While the struggles for the Vikings may continue, Justin Jefferson always seems to shine a light on a bad situation. When it comes to cornerbacks, Jefferson has proven to be matchup-proof for just about everyone in the league. 

Kirk Cousins doesn’t have to try too hard to get the ball to Jefferson. It seems like if he puts it in the general area, Jefferson goes up and gets it in any situation. In this game, Cousins will be forced to throw the ball more than usual to keep up with the Eagles

In week one, Jefferson caught nine passes on 12 targets for 150 yards. At 16.7 yards per catch and Cousins continuing to look his way play after play, Jefferson should be able to get back over 100 yards for the second consecutive week.

Jalen Hurts Anytime Touchdown (-125 at FanDuel Sportsbook)

If you watched the Eagles last season, you know that Jalen Hurts is not afraid of getting into the end zone himself. In 2022, Hurts had the 34th most rush attempts and the fourth most rushing touchdowns. 

Last season, the Vikings' defense ranked 20th in the league against the run and gave up the 9th most rushing touchdowns with 18. 

Most teams look to pound the ball inside the five or run their quick passing game. However, the Eagles, lean on the legs of their quarterback. Expect him to find the end zone at least once on Thursday night.
