NFL Week 15 same game parlay (+981 odds): Washington Football Team vs Philadelphia Eagles
Washington’s run of 5 straight divisional games continues with their delayed trip to face the Eagles in a matchup that could have huge playoff implications. Both teams find themselves at 6-7 entering the final 4 weeks of the regular season and can’t afford to put a foot wrong in the hotly-contested race for a wild-card spot in the NFC.
The Eagles return from an extended bye week boosted by the availability of QB Jalen Hurts and RB Jordan Howard, who add to their already top-ranked rushing attack. As Philly are getting players back, Washington are losing them with numerous players on the Covid list, including quarterbacks Taylor Heinecke and Kyle Allen, making it likely that recent signing Garrett Gilbert will start.

Parlay odds: +981
Under 41.5 points
They say styles make fights and the respective styles of these teams means this is setting up to be an ugly fight. The line has dropped almost 4 points in recent days with Washington’s availability issues but it is for good reason. Washington will have little choice but to try and run the ball and to minimize the pressure on Gilbert, who has just joined the team. While Washington enjoys controlling the football, ranking 6th in average time of possession, it hasn’t led to a lot of points. Washington averages 19.5 ppg on the road this year and it’s tough to see them improving that average with a depleted lineup.
Philadelphia’s rushing attack is the top-ranked unit in the league, averaging 160 yards per game and while they should punch a few holes in Washington’s line, the Football Team can still make life tough for them. If Philadelphia are forced to take to the air then we’ve seen how hit and miss that can be, with Jalen Hurts having thrown for 129 yards and 3 interceptions in his last start. With so much on the line, expect a low-scoring game.
Jalen Hurts over 48.5 rushing yards
While Washington has had success putting the clamps on running backs, they’ve found it a little tougher to contain quarterbacks with the ability to scramble. The Football Team have allowed 5.6 yards per carry to opposing quarterbacks, with the average QB rushing for 24.6 yards per game against them.
Hurts is certainly no ordinary quarterback. He leads the Eagles in rushing yards with 695 on the year. Head coach Nick Sirianni says Hurts is over the ankle injury that saw him miss the Week 13 win over the Jets and if he’s back to full fitness then we should expect to see him tuck and run on a regular basis.
Devonta Smith anytime touchdown scorer
Hurts’ absence from the Jets game was partly to blame for Smith’s production nose-diving. The rookie wide receiver posted just 2 catches for 15 yards. The other big reason for that was the Jets’ inability to stop the Eagles running the ball and they should find it a bit tougher to execute the same gameplan against Washington. Smith has been a favorite target of Hurts all year, putting up some big numbers and scoring 3 touchdowns in the last 5 games.
He has a favorable matchup this week against a Washington defense that has given up 15 TDs this year and more than 300 yards per game on average. The Football Team are also without their top pass defender in Kendall Fuller for this game and Smith looks a solid choice to return to the end zone.
