Two great NFL quarterbacks battle on Sunday in one half of this two-team parlay and two NFC West rivals go at it in the other half. Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers visit Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday while the Los Angeles Rams visit the San Francisco 49ers in a west coast showdown making for a great NFL two-team parlay.
Green Bay Packers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers: GB -1; Total 55
Green Bay versus Tampa Bay in one of the most anticipated matchups of NFL Week 6 with Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady playing against one another for just the third time in their NFL careers. This matchup opened with Tampa Bay as a one-point favorite and went as high as Tampa Bay -2.5 before shifting and bouncing over to Green Bay -2.5 and now sits at GB -1. Green Bay enjoyed a bye last week and is a perfect 4-0 straight up and against the spread and has won by an average of 12.7 points per game. The Packers offense is third in the NFL in passing, averaging 295 yards per game and the rushing offense has improved dramatically averaging 151 yards per game. Tampa Bay's defense has already sacked the quarterback 17 times and has forced nine turnovers but has yet to face a quarterback with the talent of Green Bay's Rogers, who has 13 touchdown passes and has yet to throw an interception. Green Bay has covered the spread in eight of the last 10 against an opponent with a winning record. Lay the point and take the road chalk to beat the home dogs.
1st Part of NFL Parlay: Green Bay Packers -1
Los Angeles Rams at San Francisco 49ers: LAR -3.5; Total 51.5
The Los Angeles Rams meet the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday Night Football. San Francisco is coming off a 43-17 loss to the Miami Dolphins and although playing at home are the underdogs by 3.5 points in this matchup. Jimmy Garoppolo was pulled from the game against Miami but is expected to start on Sunday against the Rams. The 49ers will use their running game to keep the strong pass rush for the Rams on its heels. San Francisco rushed for 131 yards in the loss to Miami and likely would have been much more if they were not so far behind and passing so often throughout the game. Even though the Rams have a tremendous pass rush, the Los Angeles defense has been hurt against by the run allowing between 101 and 136 yards on the ground to the Giants, Bills and Cowboys. San Francisco bounces back at home against a tough Los Angeles pass rush by running the ball repeatedly and using its talented defense to keep Jared Goff and the Rams offense from scoring too often. Take the points and the home dogs to win and cover.
