The 2021 NFL season had its first full slate on Sunday, and it was an absolute blast. Sunday’s 14 contests certainly didn’t disappoint, but we’ve got one last one to pore over before we turn our attention to Week 2. That’s right, the first edition of Monday Night Football this season. The Las Vegas Raiders hosting the Baltimore Ravens. What better way to make this nationally televised primetime game even more exciting than by betting a same game parlay? We also have thoughts on the side and total for tonight’s matchup, of course, which you can view in our NFL picks tab.

Baltimore Ravens -4.5 (-110)

Lamar Jackson to record 250+ passing yards (+260)

Marquise Brown to record 70+ receiving yards (+210)

Same Game Parlay odds: +1273

We have a 3-leg parlay which pays out north of 12/1 with FanDuel Sportsbook. Let’s break it down:

Baltimore Ravens -4.5 (-110)

For starters, the Ravens should spoil the Raiders’ debut in front of their new home fans. Las Vegas totally remade their offensive line this offseason, and not for the better. They traded away All-Pro center Rodney Hudson, and are set to replace him with 2019 UDFA Andre James. James never even took a snap at center in college. The Raiders also traded away starting guard Gabe Jackson and starting tackle Trent Brown.

Now they’ll also be without starting guard Richie Incognito, who has a calf injury. You get the idea. I expect Derek Carr to be running for his life in the face of a Ravens pass-rush that always manages to have some juice. I’m not sure what Jon Gruden was doing with his offense, and the receiving corp still leaves a lot to be desired. The Ravens should cruise here.

Lamar Jackson to record 250+ passing yards (+260)

The second leg of our same game parlay banks on a big game from Jackson. Baltimore made upgrading their passing game a priority this offseason, and they realize Jackson needs to throw more. I think they’ll try to make a statement here by letting him uncork it. He also has a history of chucking it in Week 1. In the Ravens’ opener last year he had 275 passing yards, and in the 2019 opener he had 324.

Jackson heard all the criticism of his passing this offseason, and will be eager to prove everybody wrong. The Raiders had one of the league’s worst secondaries last year, and although it should be a bit better after the signing of Casey Hayward, it’s still not a very good unit. Ravens running backs have also been dropping like flies in recent weeks, which could cause John Harbaugh to go with a more pass-heavy gameplan.

Marquise Brown to record 70+ receiving yards (+210)

To wrap up this same game parlay we’ve got Brown getting to 70 yards. This correlates heavily with our previous leg. If Jackson is having a great game through the air, guess who probably had a big night as well? Hollywood Brown. The team’s number one receiver closed last season strongly, racking up 109 and 87 receiving yards in the Ravens’ two playoff games. That was despite Jackson not going over 179 yards in either of those two postseason contests, so clearly Brown is going to get a good chunk of his volume.
