Week 3 of the NFL season is here, and one of the games of the week is between the Rams and Cardinals, two divisional rivals who also met in the playoffs last year. With Matthew Stafford and Cooper Kupp facing Kyler Murray and Marquise Brown, there are plenty of exciting players in action to place wagers on.
This article will focus on building a Same Game Parlay (SGP) for the Rams vs. Cardinals game. If you are looking for specific wagers on player props, we have that for you as well. With SGPs, we are looking to capitalize on correlation and find outcomes that are likely to happen together. Let’s take a look at our options.

NFL Week 3 Rams vs. Cardinals Same Game Parlay
On the main player props page, I wrote about how I believe this matchup is primed for Allen Robinson to have a breakout performance. Arizona ranks 28th in DVOA against the pass this season, and second-year cornerback Marco Wilson has struggled – he allowed Mack Hollins three catches for 50 yards last week while Byron Murphy played well against Davante Adams.
While it would be silly to suggest that any NFL cornerback can truly take Cooper Kupp out of the game, I assume Murphy will give it his best shot, and Robinson will have the more favorable matchup. Let’s go big with Robinson in this SGP and bet on him to have his first 100-yard game as a member of the Rams. In addition, I’m grabbing him to score a touchdown at +160 odds.
To round out our SGP, I’m adding the Rams’ Moneyline. I wrote about Rams -3.5 being one of my favorite bets in my weekly best bets article, but we’re already getting so much value from the Robinson props that we can keep it safer with the ML play. Their Moneyline is at -194 on FanDuel.
Put it all together, and we have a three-leg SGP that looks very enticing:
- Allen Robinson 100+ Yards (+750)
- Allen Robinson Anytime Touchdown Scorer (+160)
- Rams Moneyline (-194)
Full SGP Odds: +1850 ($10 wins $185.07)
NFL Week 3 Rams vs. Cardinals Same Game Parlay Bankroll Builder
For our bankroll builder parlay, there are a handful of solid options. Rather than taking the Rams Moneyline, I’m deflating it even more and taking the Rams +7.5 to give us extra coverage if the Cardinals find a way to win by a touchdown or less. In addition, I’m grabbing the over 36.5 points. 37-39 are key numbers in betting NFL totals, so it’s nice to have coverage there.
Next, I like the idea of adding a deflated line on Matthew Stafford’s passing yards. He has thrown for 225+ yards in all but two of 23 games with the Rams, and that hit rate would imply odds of -1050 rather than the -420 odds we can get on FanDuel. Finally, I’m utilizing Stafford’s chemistry with Cooper Kupp and adding his receiving yardage at an alternate line of 80+ yards. He’s also hit that in 21 of 23 games over last season and the start to this year.
