Sports Betting 101: Understanding Parlay Betting
Sportsbook Review's "Odds Couple", Peter Loshak and Mike Brenner, tackle the subject of parlay betting in today's how to bet on sports tutorial. For players based across the pond, parlays are known as accumulators.
The dynamic duo give a brief introduction to parlay betting on sports for beginners.
As many American football bettors know, parlay wagering and pigskins go together much in the same way as cigarettes and coffee.
A parlay is a wager type which involves the outcome of more than one event. For example, a parlay might include the Green Bay Packers to cover a point spread of 4 points and the NY Giants to cover a spread of 10. A standard two-team parlay payout is 2.64 to 1 at online sportsbooks that offer true odds. SBR has a free parlay odds calculator in the betting tools section of SBR Picks.
To compare sportsbook payouts on parlay wagering, visit the best parlay sportsbooks directory. Only sports betting sites in good standing with the SBR Forum community have their parlay odds shown.
