Week 1 of the NFL season is here, and the opening slate of games is fantastic. On Sunday Night Football, we’ll see a rematch between two teams who opened the season against one another last season with the Buccaneers and the Cowboys. This article will focus on the best options if you’re looking to build a Same Game Parlay for the game.
Same Game Parlays are an excellent option to boost your profit for any given football game as you can combine different wagers for a larger payout. We are always looking for correlation with these bets, as you want to find props and game outcomes that are likely to happen in conjunction with one another. Let’s take a look at our options.
NFL Week 1 Sunday Night Football Same Game Parlay
With the Buccaneers’ weakened offensive line, I expect their offense to be much more pass-heavy as they will struggle to run the ball. With Chris Godwin unlikely to play, the receiving weapons are few and far between, so I anticipate Mike Evans seeing a lion’s share of the targets. I also like the Bucs to win this game, so with those outcomes combined together, we can look at the following Same Game Parlay.

For another way to use the Same Game Parlay feature to your advantage, I like playing bankroll builder parlays. Essentially, the strategy with these is to combine props with low odds to get back to a high-confidence even money wager. With plenty of talent on both sides of the ball, this game profiles as an excellent one to use this strategy for.
For this game, I’m looking to attack the star quarterbacks and their receivers. The Buccaneers and Cowboys don’t have the same depth of pass-catching weapons as they did last year, so we’re looking to wager on their top receivers – Mike Evans and CeeDee Lamb – to have productive games.
Along with the receivers, we’ll bet on Tom Brady and Dak Prescott’s passing yardage totals milked down to 225 yards. It’s difficult to imagine either offense being functional if their quarterback doesn’t hit that mark.
Hit Rate Stats:
- Tom Brady: 225 passing yards in 16 of 19 games, 84% hit rate
- Dak Prescott: 225 passing yards in 13 of 17 games, 76% hit rate
- Mike Evans: 50 receiving yards in 12 of 18 games, 67% hit rate
- CeeDee Lamb: 50 receiving yards in 11 of 16 games, 69% hit rate
Put that all together, and we reach surpass our goal of even money at +50. To recap, these are the selections:
