Cowboys vs. Saints Same-Game NFL Parlay Picks

The first step is finding which sport you are going to wager on, so the banner at the top of the screen has the sports separated. Once you are on the NFL page, it is super simple to customize what you are looking for as far as teams and players on the left-hand side of the page.

Now, if you miss one of the odds highlighted in the article because it changed, do not worry. The lines do not always stay the same as they are updated every two minutes. There will be examples of when you can still wager based on the Awesemo projections. It is also easy to sort the props by what style you want to bet them, meaning that you can choose the highest ROI or the highest expected win rate.

Generally, the best approach is a mix of the highest ROI and expected win rate, and this whole process should take under 30 seconds to filter what you are looking for. The highlighted wagers in the article can also be bet individually, so if the parlay misses by one leg, it is not a total loss. Let’s find out what the best-projected bets are for Thursday Night Football and build some NFL parlay picks.

Amari Cooper Over 46.5 Yards Receiving

The wager varies on the yardage depending on the sportsbook, but OddsShopper projects Cooper for 55.7 yards and an expected win rate of 68% on this particular number. He is in line to make his return to the lineup tonight after missing the past two games, and the Dallas offense will welcome him back with open arms. The Saints are 13th in DVOA against the pass, but they also allow 7.3 yards per pass attempt, 26th in the league. Dallas is up to sixth in attempts per game (38.4), and New Orleans has a stout run defense. They lead in DVOA against the run, and this could be a game where Dallas has to throw to move the ball consistently. Even if Cooper is a bit limited, he is averaging 64.8 yards per game this season.

Marquez Callaway Over 30.5 Yards Receiving

There has not been a lot to talk about for the New Orleans passing game this year, but the Saints appear to be using Taysom Hill as the starting quarterback tonight. Callaway only has a 16.1% target share, but that leads the Saints receivers on the season and is second to only running back Alvin Kamara, who is out tonight. Hill showed last year that he is capable of peppering the No. 1 receiver with targets because Michael Thomas had a 33.3% target share in Hill’s four starts last season. Surely Callaway will not be targeted at that rate, but the wager only needs 31 yards to hit. OddsShopper projects him at a 58% expected win rate with 39.2 yards. Callaway likely will face Trevon Diggs in coverage, but Diggs allows 16.8 yards per reception, so he can be had when he is not racking up interceptions.

Juwan Johnson Over 13.5 Yards Receiving

The Saints lost tight end Adam Trautman to injury last week, and Johnson was not targeted, but he played the most snaps of any tight end (about 42%). It has been a tough season for Johnson, with multiple healthy scratches, but he also has four games of being targeted three times. In every one of those games he has hit at least 20 yards receiving. With Kamara out, everyone in the passing game can see more targets in the offense. When Johnson has been targeted this season, he has generated 12 yards per reception and has three deep targets among his 19 total. Dallas is fourth in DVOA against the pass, but they have also allowed the sixth-most yards passing in the league, and the 65% expected win rate is one of the highest of the night on OddsShopper.
