The Philadelphia Eagles enter Sunday hoping to stay atop the NFC through eight weeks, while the Washington Commanders enter hoping to earn a massive divisional win. Only one team will leave FedEx Field with their hope turning into reality, though, in what will surely be an exciting showdown.

Sports bettors looking to get in on the action can do so in a variety of ways, including creating a same-game parlay on DraftKings Sportsbook. Every leg must cash for the parlay to be deemed a winning ticket, so here's a look at a few that culminate in a payout over four times the investment.

Leg 1: Jake Elliott Over 1.5 Made Field Goals (-115)

Washington's defense has been picked apart by many teams this season, but it's a unit that knows how to make stops when it matters. In fact, the Commanders have allowed opponents to find the end zone on only 41.7% of red zone trips at FedEx Field. That's the third-best home mark in the NFC.

It makes targeting one of Jake Elliott's player props the way to go on Sunday. Elliott made all four of his field goal attempts against the Commanders in Week 4 and has logged at least a pair of field goal makes in five of seven games overall. His 17 made field goals are tied for the most in the NFL, too.

To dive even deeper, an opposing kicker has nailed at least two field goals in five of Washington's seven games in 2023. It's worth noting that the Eagles have scored first in six of their seven games, so this is a leg that could get started off on the right foot early and cash before halftime even arrives.

Leg 2: Jalen Hurts Anytime Touchdown Scorer (-120)

Now when the Eagles do score, there's a great chance Jalen Hurts will be the reason why. After all, he has a rushing touchdown in 10 of his last 14 regular season starts. He has scored five touchdowns across six career games against the Commanders as well, which is his highest total against any team.

Head coach Nick Sirianni has shown he trusts his quarterback to excel with the Brotherly Shove play call. It makes the 25-year-old a threat to score whenever the Eagles get within five yards of pay dirt. That's crucial on a team that averages the third-most red zone scoring chances per away game (4.0).

Leg 3: Washington Commanders Under 17.5 Points (-118)

The Eagles have truly turned a corner since they were torched by a subpar Washington offense for 31 points at Lincoln Financial Field in Week 4. Philadelphia has allowed an average of just 17.0 points in its last three games despite facing offenses with stars like wideouts Tyreek Hill and Cooper Kupp.

Meanwhile, the same thing cannot be said about the Commanders offensive line as it hasn't improved at all. It's a unit that has allowed a league-worst 40 sacks and now faces a defensive line led by veteran Haason Reddick. Negative plays do nothing but kill an team's chances of finishing drives with points.

Washington has not hit the over on its team total in any of its three home games as it is putting up a lackluster 14.3 points per game during that span. Seeing that change against a Philadelphia defense that has allowed the fourth-fewest points per away game (16.3) would be shocking to say the least.
