    A waste of time. You could hit 20 then Lose # 21. Yet it you bet individually you would have made bank .

    I run off 20 winners in a row every year. So why piss away all those profits tying all into 25 Plays???

    If vyomguy thought like you he would be a much poorer man right now. No one is saying you couldn't do the parlay and bet the games individually, I would assume vyomguy did that too.

    If he believed in the plays enough to include them in the parlay why wouldn't bet some of them straight? That's simple logic really.

    All you need is 25 straight winners. No big deal.

    Everything is possible. You take all slight favs and you win 0.00003% of the time. IE never. And if you do, the book pays you their max parlay win limit which would be a lightyear from a fair payout.

    Why not bet each game separately as well as doing the parlay?

    I don't know about a 25 team ML or RL but a few years back I hit around 10 series bets in a row to take 50 bucks into a couple grand betting favorites. Of course I lost it all being stupid and just going all in each time. OF course this was back in like 09 when the Phillies had Lee and Halladay and I don't believe lost a series all year. It was the stupid yankees who screwed me in a series vs the Marineers and then followed by them losing the next series I think to the Twins.

    I think I will start an open 25 team parlay as soon as the season stats. Might bet like 5 bucks and see what happens.

    same here. It would interesting to do an open parlay where you strictly bet ACES pitching at home against the Twins, Cubs, and Astros.
