The Thursday Night Football game between New Orleans and Arizona this week might as well be called the injury bowl. The Saints vs. Cardinals injury list is heavy on big names, which has created substantial possibilities for a few individuals.
We intend to capitalize on the increased use for Alvin Kamara and Chris Olave in particular. As a result, we’ve created a tasty Saints vs. Cardinals same-game parlay to show it.
Check out our recommendations below, and then keep reading to learn about our thinking process behind each one.
Same-Game Parlay: Saints vs. Cardinals
|Alvin Kamara 4+ Receptions||-230|

Even though there are only three legs in this same-game parlay between Arizona and New Orleans, it still pays +380 odds on a hit. The SGP opens with a wager on Kamara’s enlarged pass game role with Andy Dalton at the helm.
Alvin Kamara, 1st SGP Pick, 4+ Receptions
Jameis Winston, who seldom checks the ball down, is among the worst quarterbacks at using Kamara’s skill set. Kamara managed just five receptions in two games when Winston was in charge of the offense.
Contrarily, Dalton is the check-down king. In two games with the Red Rifle, Kamara had at least six passes caught while seeing a total of 15 targets.
Despite the fact that the oddsmakers have the Saints as 2.5-point underdogs on TNF, Kamara is a great wager to catch at least four passes in this game.
It’s hardly surprising that he appears frequently in the Saints vs. Cardinals player props, but receptions aren’t his only appearance.
Alvin Kamara Anytime TD, SGP Pick #2
Kamara’s lack of a touchdown is one of the more surprising aspects of this NFL season thus far. This is the same player that scored 21 touchdowns in 2020. Based on his use over the last two weeks and the injury situation in New Orleans, this appears to be the night he ends his dry drought.
Over the last two games, Kamara has had 29 and 25 touches, resulting in 318 total yards. Over that time, the Saints have scored 55 points, and if the offense keeps clicking, Kamara will get his. Arizona is 24th against the pass and 20th overall in total defense according to DVOA, so the matchup is hardly intimidating.
One of our experts, who is backing New Orleans in the Saints vs. Cardinals choices, is cognizant of this fact.
Chris Olave Over 49.5 Receiving Yards, SGP Pick #3
I get that by selecting a second New Orleans receiving option, we are placing a lot of trust in Dalton, but aside from Kamara and Olave, the pass-catching options are really limited.
Olave, who missed Sunday’s loss due to a concussion, is back this week and aims to accumulate at least 50 receiving yards for the fifth consecutive game.
In just his last four games, the Ohio State product has received 39 targets, including 26 in three games with Dalton at the helm. Sorry Tre’Quan Smith and Marcus Callaway, but Olave is the only reliable wide receiver the Saints have left now that Michael Thomas and Jarvis Landry are injured. Dalton is well aware of this.
In the Saints vs. Cardinals public betting splits, just 36% of the ATS wagers are going to New Orleans. If gamblers are right, a pass-heavy game script from Dalton in catch-up mode is probably going to raise Olave’s ceiling even further.
