What is a Same Game Parlay?

A Same Game Parlay is just like a regular parlay wager, except all selections come from 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.

You can combine multiple bets from one matchup or team into a single parlay to go for an even bigger win.

Think your favorite team is going to dominate their next matchup? Bet on them to win, the total to go over, and their QB to throw over 3 TDs — all in one parlay. If each of your parlay legs hits, you’ll win more than if you placed each bet separately. But if you miss just one leg, you’ll lose the parlay.

Where can I bet on a Same Game Parlay? 

FanDuel Sportsbook

FanDuel is one of the sportsbooks championing Same Game Parlays, with them offered on every NFL and NBA game, as well as most soccer games.

To bet on an SGP with FanDuel in particular, simply head to FanDuel Sportsbook and click on the NFL or NBA tab — this will display all of the matches currently available. Click on the game you want to wager on and you’ll see a Same Game Parlay tab on the top navigation bar, click here and simply select all of the prop bets you want to combine in your parlay.

Each selection will be added to your bet slip on the right side of the page, with the Same Game Parlay odds updated with each pick. Once you have added all of your selections, enter the amount you wish to wager and hit ‘place bet’. And that’s it, you’re on!

DraftKings Sportsbook

DraftKings Sportsbook is the latest betting provider to introduce same game parlays, having done so in August 2021. They offer same game parlays on NFL, NBA, MLB, Soccer, and have announced that they will be available for the NHL as well.

BetMGM

BetMGM has also introduced their own version called a ‘One Game Parlay’. They offer the widest range of sports at the moment and bettors can place a One Game Parlay on NFL, NBA, and Soccer. 

PointsBet

PointsBet has a Single Game Parlay feature, which is available to New Jersey bettors on football and basketball. We hope it will be rolled out to other states in the near future.

With its increasing popularity, you’ll almost certainly see even more sportsbooks add this option too.

Also be sure to check out our latest Sportsbook Promos page for the latest sign-up offers, including at FanDuel, PointsBet, and BetMGM, to get your wagering off to the best possible start.

Same Game Parlay betting tips

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 a 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 cashed this same game parlay between the Rams and 49ers, which highlights how correlated plays can result in 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.

Why bet on a Same Game Parlay? 

Well, the main reason for a Same Game Parlay bet is for the fun, and excitement of having a wager on a game you might be watching.

Like most wages accepted by sportsbooks, the house will feel an SGP is in their favor, but if you’re smart you can use Same Game Parlays to win bets at big odds.

Every selection you add to the Same Game Parlay increases the difficulty of seeing the ticket cashing, but by correlating your picks you can get some nice odds about an SGP.

At Pickswise we rely upon years of experience handicapping sports and researching stats, matchups and trends to highlight the best plays for your Same Game Parlays. Be sure to check out our weekly NFL and NBA news articles where we add our top Same Game Parlay plays each day.
