Best Same-Game Parlay Week 6 bets today for Seahawks vs. Bengals: 3-Leg Parlay Pick (+600)
Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow had his first three-TD passing game of the season last week in Cincinnati’s 34-20 win over the Arizona Cardinals and finally looked like the Burrow we all know. Given Burrow’s improved health and the Seattle secondary’s struggles this season, we’re going to take the plus money here and project that Burrow will throw for at least three touchdowns for the second straight week.
Leg-1 SGP Pick: Joe Burrow 3+ Passing Touchdowns (+240)
If you’ve been reading this, you already know my favorite player prop for Sunday’s game is for Bengals QB Joe Burrow to exceed 277.5 passing yards. While I think he gets over that number, I also think he’ll reach 300 yards passing. As stated above, this Seahawks defense has allowed every opposing quarterback other than Daniel Jones -- whom I don’t even consider a competent quarterback at this point -- to throw for 300 yards against it.
Leg-2 SGP Pick: Joe Burrow 300+ Passing Yards (+150)
I was going to add a prop here for Seahawks running back Kenneth Walker III, and anyone who is feeling risky is certainly willing to wager on him because the Bengals run defense is awful. However, I’m worried that the Seahawks will abandon the run if this game gets out of hand. So, for our third leg of this same-game parlay, we’re going to go with the Cincinnati Bengals money line. Having already taken the spread bet in Cincinnati’s favor, there’s no need to double dip because it's still “any given Sunday.” The Bengals should handle the spread and more as Joe Burrow could flirt with 400 yards passing against this Seattle secondary.
Leg-3 SGP Pick: Cincinnati Bengals ML (-150)

Seahawks at Bengals Preview
Since suffering a beatdown at home in their season-opener against the Los Angeles Rams, the Seattle Seahawks have taken a 180-degree turn. Seattle has won three straight games and currently sits in second place in the NFC West. Since the San Francisco 49ers are likely going to win the division, every game going forward is critical for the Seahawks, who will likely be battling for a wild-card playoff berth toward the end of the year. Meanwhile in Cincinnati, star quarterback Joe Burrow ‘s health has been a focal point, because the Bengals’ offense hasn’t resembled anything close to what we have seen with Burrow leading the way in previous seasons. Trailing the AFC North-leading Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens, who are both 3-2, the 2-3 Bengals find themselves in a near must-win game Sunday to keep pace with the Steelers, who have a bye this week, and Ravens, who face a sub.-500 Titans team this weekend.
Seahawks vs. Bengals Predictions and NFL Picks Week 6
After Cincinnati’s practice on Wednesday, quarterback Joe Burrow told reporters that this is “by far” the closest he has been to 100 percent healthy since training camp. That’s great news for the Bengals, whose offense has looked like a shell of itself through the season’s first five weeks. Cincy is averaging 16.6 points per game this season compared to 26.1 last season. Seattle’s defense has safety Jamal Adams coming back from the league’s concussion protocol, and the Seahawks certainly hope that he can bolster their secondary, because it has been allowing the third-most passing yards per game to opposing offenses this season. While Adams’ return will help, the news that Burrow is nearly 100 percent has to be scary for Seattle. If the Seahawks wants to have a chance in this game, they will have to utilize their pass rush, which is sixth in the NFL with 16 sacks on the season. That’s a challenge since – through the first five games, at least - the Bengals offensive line has done a decent job protecting Burrow, who has only been sacked 11 times. Given Burrow’s improved health and the state of this Seahawks secondary, look for Burrow and the Bengals to have a big day in front of their home crowd.
The Pick: Cincinnati Bengals -3 (-105)
Now that Burrow has said his injury is behind him, I have high expectations for this Bengals offense. In fact, I expect it to look like the offense we’re used to seeing. In any event, there should be a lot of points coming from the Bengals, given how bad Seattle’s defense is at defending the pass. On the flip side, Cincinnati’s run defense allows opponents the NFL’s second-most rushing yards -- an average of 154 per game. So, expect the Seahawks to establish the run early and set up some play-action for wide receivers Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf. I expect this game to become lopsided in the Bengals’ favor, which could eliminate the run option for Seattle, but the Seahawks should be able to get a touchdown or two, which will be more than enough for this total to hit the over.
The Pick: Over 44.5 (-115)
Best NFL Player Prop Bets for Seahawks vs. Bengals: Week 6
Quarterback Joe Burrow’s high prop total for passing yardage in this game could scare away a lot of people, but hear me out. Other than Giants quarterback Daniel Jones, who had his second-best passing day of the season when he threw for 203 yards against Seattle, NFL quarterbacks have really gone to town against the Seahawks defense. Seattle has allowed each of the four other quarterbacks it has faced to exceed 300 passing yards. With Burrow now healthy, and knowing what his offense is capable of in that situation, I see the Bengals QB quite easily breaking 300 passing yards for the second time this season.
