Same Game Parlay Guide: What is it and where can I bet on it?
A Same Game Parlay is just like a regular parlay wager, except all selections come from prop bets within one specific match. The obvious positive of it is that by combining multiple selections you can go for an even bigger win with the odds increasing with each selection. They are mostly used in NFL games, but are also available in the NBA.
Bettors will often use Same Game Parlays to wager on correlated props, and if you get it right the payouts can be huge. Take, for example, an NFL game where team facing a poor pass defense with an elite QB, in that spot you might take the QB to hit over their passing yards total and you can also parlay that with their favorite wide receiver to score anytime and over their receiving yards. Alternatively, you can combine selections that slightly go against each other as a means of securing a huge boost in odds.
Here’s an example of one of our same game parlays that cashed on Thanksgiving, and resulted in a huge payout. We also nailed this same game parlay between the Rams and 49ers, which highlights how correlated plays can result on big winners.
As with any type of parlay wager, the more selections you add, the more difficult it is to win, but the odds also greatly increase.
