Since graduating from Davidson (The College That Stephen Curry Built), I have been writing about sports--just about any and all you can think of!--and coaching tennis in Atlanta, Ga. Beyond the four major sports, I am an avid tennis fan and cover the ATP Tour on a daily basis. If I'm not busy writing, you can generally find me on a tennis court or traveling the world wherever a sporting event takes me.

Week 3 of the NFL season is here and it will heat up in a big way with plenty of intriguing matchups on Sunday. One of those features the undefeated Las Vegas Raiders going up against the 1-1 Miami Dolphins. Let’s take a look at the best same game parlay option for Dolphins-Raiders, and also be sure to check out our full game preview for picks on the side and total.

Las Vegas Raiders -9.5 alternate spread (+185)

Jacoby Brissett Under 229.5 passing yards (-113)

Henry Ruggs III to record 50+ receiving yards (+164)

Parlay odds: +1126

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 the entire plan here, as Henry Ruggs III having a big day through the air would obviously work well with a big Las Vegas win, as would Miami quarterback Jacoby Brissett being held in check. Let’s break down each of the three legs one by one.

Las Vegas Raiders -9.5 alternate spread (+185)

The Raiders kicked off their 2021 campaign in incredibly impressive fashion, with a Monday night win over Baltimore following by a road victory at Pittsburgh. Derek Carr has been outstanding so far, with a ridiculous 817 passing yards through 2 games in addition to 4 touchdowns and 1 interception. Ruggs (22.7 ypc) provides and fellow WR Hunter Renfrow seems to just keep getting better and better every year. As expected, Carr’s MRI for an apparent ankle issue did not show anything of note so he is good to go. The quarterback news is not as good in Miami. Tua Tagovailoa is injured again, having suffered cracked ribs in Week 2. He is out for at least 3 weeks, which means Jacoby Brissett is now under center for the Dolphins. Brissett was awful against the Bills last weekend, completing 24 of 40 passes for 169 yards with no TDs and 1 INT during a 35-0 loss. The Raiders should win this one, and they will probably win it big.

Jacoby Brissett Under 229.5 passing yards (-113)

As mentioned above, Brissett attempted 40 attempts last week and finished with only 169 yards to show for his efforts. Nothing suggests that he will suddenly get on track in his first start of the years, especially when he is going up against a Las Vegas defense that is brimming with confidence. Moreover, the Dolphins are going to do everything they can to keep the Raiders’ offense off the field. Their best chance of that is by controlling the clock with a steady diet of runs.

Henry Ruggs III to record 50+ receiving yards (+164)

Ruggs’ yards per catch average is such that it doesn’t take a genius to figure out that he probably won’t need many receptions to exceeded the 50-yard mark. The former Alabama standout already has 159 yards on 7 catches this season.  With opposing defenses forced to focus on Darren Waller, who is arguably the best tight end in the game, things are opening up for Ruggs and other receivers. Miami’s secondary is going to be in trouble.
