I've been writing about the NFL and a host of other sports for the UK's top daily betting paper the Racing Post for more than 20 years. An incurable Browns fan (1-31 survivor), I also specialise in all kinds of motorsport betting including F1, MotoGP, IndyCar and NASCAR.

This game is probably some way down the priority list for most people on the NFL Week 6 afternoon slate and it’s far from the most attractive betting game of the week, too. But someone has to win, and someone has to score make plays, so there’s always scope for a same game parlay to liven things up.

Sunday’s game (Fox Sports, 1 pm ET) sees the winless Detroit Lions hosting the the 3-2 Cincinnati Bengals, but those records might easily be a little closer together if a few breaks had gone the other way.

Let’s take a look at the 3-leg same game parlay we’ve prepared, which pays +684 odds with FanDuel Sportsbook.

Detroit Lions +3.5 (-110)

Ja’Marr Chase anytime touchdown scorer (+110)

Jared Goff over 8.5 rushing yards (-114)

Parlay odds: +684

Detroit Lions +3.5

Detroit’s 0-5 start was enough to reduce head coach Dan Campbell to tears after their loss to Minnesota on a 54-yard field goal as time expired last Sunday. But while the Lions are 0-5 in terms of what matters to coaches — winning games — they are a much better 3-2 at what matters to bettors — covering the spread. And the Lions again can be expected to at least keep things close against the Bengals at Ford Field on Sunday, whether or not the game ends in another heartbreaking loss or they get a ‘W’ for the first time this season. Cincinnati beat the league’s other winless team, Jacksonville, by only 3 points having trailed 14-0 at the half. And while last Sunday’s narrow loss to Green Bay represented an improved performance, the Bengals’ already fragile offensive line has sustained more losses and that could prove a problem.

Ja’Marr Chase anytime touchdown scorer

One interesting storyline from this game is that it features the two players the Bengals spent a long time choosing between in this year’s draft. They opted for wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase, and that looks smart enough given that he has scored 5 TDs in his first 5 NFL games. But equally, the Bengals sure could use Penei Sewell–the offensive tackle who fell to Detroit 2 picks later instead. Bengals QB Joe Burrow has continued to take punishment this season and has been sacked 14 times. That being said, when he is kept clean he has a flourishing relationship with his former college teammate and another Chase TD would be no surprise. The spread pick wasn’t banking on the Lions shutting out the Bengals, so adding a Cincy TD scorer is not a major concern for the parlay.

Jared Goff over 8.5 rushing yards

The player prop markets for this game are hard to assess with both teams’ leading running backs, Joe Mixon for Cincinnati and Detroit’s D’Andre Swift, on the injury report this week. Detroit’s receiving corps is depleted (KhaDarel Hodge could play a bigger role in this game but has been ignored by the yardage prop setters). Instead, we can look to one player who is just about guaranteed to play, Lions QB Jared Goff. His rushing yardage line is just 8.5 and while he topped that mark in only the first 2 games of this season — falling just short with 8 against Chicago — a couple of scrambles away from the lively Bengals d-line should be enough to cash this leg.
