Parlays & Teasers Explained

What Are Parlays?

A parlay describes a bet that includes multiple games. To acquire the parlay all parts of the bet have to win. When you bet two (or more) games at once, your odds of success are smaller, however your payouts get larger.

Having a parlay, you can add any sort of wager (stakes against the spread, moneyline bets, over/under betting, etc.). If you produce a parlay using four matches, but just three of your picks win, your parlay loses and you concede your bet. Parlay bets are occasionally referred to as multi stakes or a number of bets.

For example, if you think that the Patriots will cover the spread against the Chiefs in Week 1 and also want the Packers to beat the Seahawks that same week, it is possible to combine those two bets into one. You’ll want to win both bets to find a return on your investment, nevertheless.

Each bookmaker has their own limit on how many games you can add into one parlay.

What Can Not You Parlay?

Lastly, it’s uncommon that sportsbook will permit you to parlay first half/first quarter squares or sides with complete game sides or totals.
