What is a Same Game Parlay?

Same Game Parlay Explained

A same game parlay is not very different from a regular parlay wager, with the only caveat that, as indicated by the name, all legs of the parlay are on a specific matchup or game. As we have seen in previous tutorials, the big positive of a parlay bet is that you can go for an even bigger win than a single wager, as the odds increase for every selection you add. Same game parlay are particularly popular in NFL, NBA, MLB and soccer.

If you can get all the selections correctly, the payouts can be massive. However, it is important to remember that when establishing Same Game Parlays odds, sportsbooks are taking into account correlation, so the potential payouts will not be as big as a parlays placed across multiple games.

When does it make sense to place a Same Game Parlay wager?

If you can read a game in many different aspects, then a Same Game Parlay could be the best way to monetize your knowledge. Let’s say, for instance, that Tampa Bay Buccaneers, with a top quarterback, are facing a poor pass defence. There might be opportunities to take the QB to hit over their passing yards total, and you can also parlay that with their favorite wide receiver to score a touchdown and hit the over in their receiving yards line.

In MLB, for instance, you could back a pitcher to have a dominant night on the mound, with his team covering the -2.5 run line. These are just a few examples, but Same Game Parlays’ opportunities are endless. You could also combine selections to go slightly against each other, as that will give you a boost in odds, as per the correlation we have mentioned before. For instance, you could back an under in an NFL or NBA game but select a over on a player’s points or yards prop.

The great thing about Same Game Parlay is that if your parlay legs hits, you will win more than if you placed each bet separately. Similarly to parlays wagers, though, if you miss just one leg, you will lose the whole parlay.

Same game parlays have gained massive popularity in the US recently, with the likes of BetMGM, Caesars and other sportsbooks offering a huge amount of opportunities every single day.
