What is a Same Game Parlay?

Author: Devin Erickson-Sheehy | Last Updated: September 6, 2023

A same game parlay refers to multiple bets made on an individual game. It generally involves combining various game/player props with overall outcomes such as spreads, moneylines, and totals, although technically, any two bets on a game constitute a same game parlay.

Similar to traditional multi-leg parlays, which combine the results of several different games, the entire wager is graded as a loss if any leg of your bet doesn't hit.

For example, let's say you wanted to place a same-game parlay on the Philadelphia Eagles vs New York Giants game. You anticipate the Eagles to win the game outright and for a lot of points to be scored. You construct the following same-game parlay:

  • Eagles to win
  • Over 47.5 points scored
  • Jalen Hurts over 2.5 touchdown passes
  • Devonta Smith to score a touchdown
  • Daniel Jones over 200 passing yards

In this example, every single event listed above would need to take place or the bet would not win.

The appeal of same-game parlays is that they usually offer highly favorable payouts even for smaller stakes. It's not infrequent to see payouts 2x, 5x, or even 10x your initial bet. This is why all of the best sports betting apps now offer SGPs. Just remember, the longer the odds, the harder it is to win the bet.

You can find same-game parlays for nearly every sports market, including baseball, basketball, football, hockey, soccer, and a whole lot more.

Nearly all sportsbooks offers same game parlays. They are prominently featured within the events tab. Be sure to check the fine print, as the rules may vary depending on your book of choice. You can also qualify for sportsbook promos by signing up for a new account.
