The Indianapolis Colts are still searching for their first victory of the season as they prepare to visit the Miami Dolphins on Sunday afternoon. Let’s take a look at the best same game parlay option for Colts-Dolphins, and also be sure to check out our full game preview for picks on the side and total.

Miami Dolphins -5.5 alternate spread (+140)

Jacoby Brissett Over 208.5 passing yards (-113)

Jonathan Taylor anytime touchdown scorer (+115)

Parlay odds: +1100

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 Jacoby Brissett racking up his fair share of passing yards would obviously work well with a Miami 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 Indianapolis running back Jonathan Taylor to score a touchdown. But even if Taylor does, there is no reason why the Dolphins can’t take care of business. Let’s break down each of the three legs one by one.

Miami Dolphins -5.5 alternate spread (+140)

Indianapolis has opened its 2021 campaign with consecutive losses to Seattle, the Rams, and Tennessee. Quarterback Carson Wentz managed to play during last week’s setback against the Titans despite a pair of sprained ankles, but the offense could not get anything going through the air or on the ground–finishing with 265 total yards. Adding insult to injury, Week 4 marks the second of 3 straight road games for the Colts: at Tennessee, this one at Miami, and at Baltimore. Needless to say, that is not a friendly stretch–especially when they are already 0-3. Miami is down to its backup quarterback, but that may not be a bad thing. Filling in for an injured Tua Tagovailoa, Brissett looked much improved from Week 2. The Dolphins’ offense should be able to find at least a decent amount of success at the expense of an opponent that has allowed at least 25 points in every game so far.

Jacoby Brissett Over 208.5 passing yards (-113)

In his second time seeing significant action this season, Brissett improved last week by completing 23 of 49 passes for 215 yards against Las Vegas. For whatever it’s wort, he also rushed 37 yards and a score. We are only concerned about passing yards here, but the bottom line is that Brissett is playing solid football overall. Indianapolis is allowing 268.7 passing yards per contest, so this isn’t too big of a number for the 28-year-old out of N.C. State.

Jonathan Taylor anytime touchdown scorer (+115)

Miami is 27th in the NFL in rushing defense at 136.0 yards per game and has given up 4 touchdowns on the ground. Taylor actually hasn’t scored a TD through 3 weeks, but he delivered 12 last year. The former Wisconsin standout averaged 6.4 yards per carry last Sunday against Tennessee, so the Colts should feature him a lot more than just with the 10 attempts he got in Week 3. Taylor also has 8 receptions on 9 targets so far in 2021, so that is another realistic pathway to the endzone.
