Same Game Parlays
Sports gambling is massively popular these days. Everywhere you look there's a new betting app being launched, a new partnership being formed. There are countless shows and social media posts giving you 'expert' opinions on which bets can't miss. It's no secret why sports gambling has become so popular lately. It brings in tons and tons of money! And with more states allowing sports gambling to become legal, it's only going to continue to grow.
One of the best parts of sports gambling is that there are so many different choices for betting. Take a regular casino game like slots or blackjack. You really don't have many options. You spin and you hit or stay. That's basically it. With sports gambling, you can bet the spread, the money line, the over/under, you can bet game props and player props and you can create parlays. All those choices and so little time! Today, we're going to take a look at one of those unique options offered to sports gamblers and that is SGPs - or, as they're better known as - Same Game Parlays. These unique features are fun, easy to get the hang of and can make games even more exciting for players. So what are we waiting for? Let's get right to it!
What are Same Game Parlays
We all know what parlays are. They are placing 2 or more bets on the same ticket. You could place a bet on a baseball game, football game and soccer game. And if they all hit, you win! Same Game Parlays take that same general concept but tweak it slightly. You're still placing 2 or more bets on the same ticket, but they all must be from the same game.
Since your bets have to be from the same game - hence the name - the type of bets you're going to be placing are a little different. Obviously, there's only one game you're betting on so you won't be placing multiple outcome bets like spread and money line. Instead, you're going to be placing some prop bets. Let's look at an example.
Since football season has begun let's take a football game for our example. We have Team A and Team B. Our Same Game Parlay might be taking Team A at +5 and combining it with Quarterback A throwing for over 250 yards and Running Back A to score at least 1 touchdown.
And there you go! You just made a Same Game Parlay.
You don't have to include a spread, money line or over/game for the total game either. You could keep it all with player props like Quarterback A to throw 3 touchdowns, Wide Receiver A to have 100 yards and Running Back B to score 2 touchdowns.
You can have first half spreads, first score of the game, touchdown scorers… they options really are endless. The most important thing to know is that all the bets must be place on the same game.
Some tips on how to get the most out of your Same Game Parlays
Parlays are always fun to make. They come with nice payouts and keep you invested in multiple games - or actions - that must happen in order for your ticket to be a winner. But some players get carried away with the potential payouts of parlays and make things harder on themselves. Here are some tips to make sure your Same Game Parlays have the best chance of hitting…
- Research, research, research
No, we aren't talking about doing hours worth of research like you're in law school. But by doing even a little bit will go a long way. Look at things like the weather for a game. Is it rainy? Cold? Windy? That might be negatively affect a team that's primarily a passing team - if we're talking football. How do teams' offense and defensive matchup against each other? Is a player on a hot streak? Is a player on a cold streak? All of these things are easy to find out and could make or break your Same Game Parlays.
- Keep it simple
It's easy to get carried away with parlays and put 9 bets on one ticket. The payout would be huge! And that's because the odds of it hitting are insanely LOW. Same goes with Same Game Parlays - keep it simple! Find matchups you think favor one side and add them to your ticket. We always like keeping our parlays to around 2-5 bets - and 5 is pushing it. The simpler you keep your parlays the more chance you'll have of them hitting. And even a 3 leg parlay will payout nicely!
- Manage expectations
The good thing about parlays is that you don't need to bet huge in order to win. Sure, a larger bet will pay out more, but that's the case with any bet. But because parlays come with nice payouts, even lower bets will pay out nicely. This is ideal for players with smaller bankrolls. You don't have to bet like a high roller in order to win. Just remember, parlays are tough to hit. You need a lot to go in your favor. So don't get discouraged if you lose a few. Know when you walk away and never chase your losses!
So there we have it! That's our look at Same Game Parlays. As we can see, these unique bets can add even more excitement to a game and your betting ticket.
