The Los Angeles Rams are 4-1 and will be looking to stay within striking distance of undefeated Arizona in the high-powered NFC West when they visit the lowly New York Giants on Sunday afternoon. Let’s take a look at the best same game parlay option for Rams vs Giants, and also be sure to check out our full game preview for picks on the side and total.

Los Angeles Rams -8 (-114)

Darrell Henderson over 75.5 rushing yards (-130)

Kadarius Toney to score a touchdown (+230)

Parlay odds: +1098

Part of the value in same game parlays, of course, is that all of its components can be correlated if you so choose. That is some of the plan here, as Darrell Henderson racking up a sizable amount of rushing yards would obviously work well with a Los Angeles win. At the same time, plays that aren’t correlated drive up the overall payout of the parlay. That is the case with betting on New York receiver Kadarius Toney to score a touchdown. But even if Toney does, there is no reason why the Rams can’t win big. Let’s break down each of the three legs one by one.

Los Angeles Rams -8 (-114)

The Rams rebounded from their lone loss of the season (to the division-rival Cardinals) by beating Seattle on the road 26-17 last Thursday night. A long week in between games will only benefit what already looks like one of the best teams in the NFL. It is a much different story for the Giants, who come in at an opposite 1-4. They did well to beat New Orleans in Week 4, but to say things went south last weekend would be an understatement. Not only did they get mauled 44-20 by Dallas, but they also lost quarterback Daniel Jones to a concussion, receiver Kenny Golladay to a knee injury, and running back Saquon Barkley to a nasty sprained ankle. Jones is questionable, while Golladay and Barkley are doubtful. Even with New York at full strength LA would be a considerable favorite, so I’m not too concerned about giving 8 points.

Darrell Henderson over 75.5 rushing yards (-130)

Henderson has exceeded this quota in each of the past two games (89 yards and then 82 yards). The Giants are fifth-to-last in rushing defense this season at 138.4 yards allowed per game. They are also giving up 4.7 yard per carry. I’m expecting Los Angeles to play from ahead for most of the game, if not all of it, which would lead to the ball being kept on the ground and Henderson getting a lot of attempts. Everything points to a big performance for the former Memphis standout.

Kadarius Toney to score a touchdown (+230)

Just about everyone on the Giants’ offense has an injury distinction this week. Toney is no exception, as he is questionable with an ankle problem. However, the Florida product practice at least a little bit on Thursday and he could be the focal point of the offense if he is good to go since Barkley and Golladay are doubtful. Expect Toney to be a top target, all over the field but especially in the red zone.
