Parlays & Teasers Explained

What Are Parlays?

A parlay describes a wager that includes multiple games. To acquire the parlay all areas of the bet have to win. When you bet two (or more) games simultaneously, your odds of success are somewhat smaller, however your payouts become larger.

With a parlay, you may add any sort of wager (bets against the spread, moneyline bets, over/under betting, etc.). If you make a parlay using four matches, but just three of your selections win, then your parlay loses and you surrender your wager. Parlay bets are sometimes referred to as multi stakes or a number of stakes.

As an instance, if you believe the Patriots will cover the spread against the Chiefs in Week 1 and want the Packers to beat the Seahawks the same week, you can combine those two stakes into one. You will need to win both bets to find a return on your investment, nevertheless.

Every bookmaker has their own limitation on the number of games you can add into a single parlay.

What Can’t You Parlay?
While building your parlay bet provides you almost unlimited gaming liberty, most sportsbooks do have any limitations on what you can occasions you can not place within a single parlay.

At virtually every sportsbook, you won’t be permitted to parlay the moneyline and the spread of the same game. Doing this exposes sportsbooks to more potential monetary loss than they are willing to take on. The explanation for that is that you can’t parlay events that are linked, as the moneyline and disperse obviously are.

The same logic applies to parlays. If the outcome of a single choice on your parlay is partly connected to a different, your sportsbook is not very likely to allow you to parlay them. For instance, if you are betting on Winnipeg Jets to win their Western Conference Playoff Finals, you can’t parlay this wager with the Jets winning the Stanley Cup.

Last, it’s rare that sportsbook will permit you to parlay first half/first quarter squares or sides with full match sides or totals.

Of course, there is no definitive answer for what all online sportsbooks will or won’t let you do when it comes to making parlay stakes. Both online sportsbooks are wholly alike, and what’s restricted at one book may be allowed at another. Always make sure you read the terms and conditions of this sportsbook you’ve chosen to gamble before proceeding with your parlay.
