MLB betting has long become the sport of the parlay wager. Fans can bet on a number of games in a circle bet. Often considered a suckers wager, parlays have made many baseball betting handicappers rather rich in a short amount of time. Here is a look at Baseball parlays a low risk high reward wager.
Baseball is a distant third to that of NFL and NBA betting. As a result, one can imagine that baseball parlays would differ greatly from that of the NFL and NBA. For instance, while there are set payout odds for NFL and NBA, baseball parlays are dependent on the amount of teams involved in the given wager. As you can imagine, if the MLB parlay was the same as an NFL parlay, there would be no money to be made by sportsbooks around the world.
How A Baseball Parlay is Created:
Simply put, although MLB and NFL parlays differ in payout odds, they still work in the same way. Meaning to say, baseball parlays like football, operate on the premise of wagering on multiple teams in one combined bet. In order to win a baseball parlay, you need all of the teams you pick to win, to win. If one loses, then the whole bet goes to waste. Yet if they all win, you receive a rather high payout.
Essentially the money in a parlay carries over from one game to another until the wager finishes or one team in your parlay loses. For instance, in a two team parlay, involving the New York Yankees and Toronto Blue Jays, you would need both teams to win in order for the parlay to be a winner.
This is no betonline com scam -- say the Yankees are a -200 over the Rangers and the Jays are a +150 against the Phillies. A bettor would place $50 on the Yankees to beat the Rangers which would become $75 if the Yankees won. That $75 would then be parlayed to the Jays vs. Rangers game. Now if the Jays are defeated by the Rangers, the parlay is a loser. However, if they win, the parlay totals out to $157.50 win.
