The Philadelphia Eagles and Miami Dolphins enter Week 7 in a similar spot. Each team is fighting off a contender within the division and is relying on a star-powered offense to carry the load. Only one team will earn a coveted sixth win in 2023, though, and it's a battle that may go down to the wire.
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 nearly five times the investment.
Leg 1: A.J. Brown 100+ Receiving Yards (+160)
There's no denying that wide receiver A.J. Brown has been the heartbeat of the Eagles offense as of late. The 26-year-old has tallied at least 127 yards in each of Philadelphia's last four games and now gets to face a Miami secondary that has question marks all over the place in terms of injury concerns.
All-Pro cornerback Jalen Ramsey remains out with a meniscus injury and Xavien Howard is banged up with a groin issue. The Dolphins have given up the third-most receptions to opposing wideouts (93) and are one of 11 teams to have allowed at least 1,000 total yards to wide receivers this year.
That includes allowing Stefon Diggs of the Buffalo Bills to rack up 120 yards in Week 4 and Adam Thielen of the Carolina Panthers to log 115 yards in Week 6. Brown presents a similar challenge to the Dolphins as he is someone capable of ripping apart a team with short, intermediate, or deep routes.
Leg 2: Tyreek Hill 100+ Receiving Yards (-105)
Another one of those 11 teams to have allowed at least 1,000 total yards to opposing wideouts is the Eagles. A big reason why is the fact that Philly has been dominant against the run, giving up just 3.7 rushing first downs per game (second-best in NFL). Miami will have to rely on the pass to compete.
That bodes well for wide receiver Tyreek Hill's chances of balling out once again. The Oklahoma State product leads the league in receiving yards (814) and has tallied at least 100 yards in four of Miami's six contests. His chemistry with quarterback Tua Tagovailoa has been off the charts so far in 2023.
It's worth pointing out Hill has also put up 229 yards on 15 catches in two career matchups against Philly. Look for Miami's coaching staff to find ways to get Hill away from veteran cornerbacks Darius Slay and James Bradberry. That would give him looks against players not quite familiar with his skills.
Leg 3: Both Teams to Score 20+ Points (-175)
Sunday night features a matchup of two of the top-six scoring offenses in the NFL. Miami has posted at least 20 points in each of their first six games, while Philadelphia has done so in five of their first six showdowns. That trend alone makes adding this leg to the parlay a smart move, even at -175 odds.
To dive a bit deeper, the Dolphins are allowing a whopping 33.0 points per away game and the Eagles are giving up 29.5 points per home game. Don't expect too many punts to be on display at Lincoln Financial Field as both teams aim to assert themselves as true challengers for the Lombardi Trophy.
