    what is the difference between action reverse and a 2-team parlay?

    action revrese and two-team parlays seems the same to me. is there a difference?

    Action reverse is basically 2 seperate bets

    say you bet 100 action reverse you are risking 220 to win 400

    If your teams split you lose -120

    Both lose = -220

    Both win = +400

    Really is a true parlay where if you bet 1st game and won and then you put it all on 2nd game

    Difference is with $100 parlay, if both games lose, you still lose just $100. $100 reverse is basically two $100 IF bets back and forth, so if both games lose, you lose $200.

    That would be highly dependent on your means of judging one set of bets "better" than another.

    Action reverse of 2 bets at -110
    Lose both bets => -1.0000 units
    Lose 1, Win 1 => -0.5455 units
    Win both bets => +1.8182 units
    EV at 4.545% juice per bet => -6.8182%


    Parlay of 2 bets at -110
    Lose both bets => -1.0000 units
    Lose 1, Win 1 => -1.0000 units
    Win both bets => +2.6446 units
    EV at 4.545% juice (per bet) => -8.8843%

    Looks like Ganch has your answer. If you're asking me personally there's no difference, simply because I lose at both.
