There is nothing wrong with the straight
bet, or a single bet, on the soccer games, but choosing the parlay would
improve your winnings a lot. We have always been pig proponents to the
parlay betting, rather than simply placing multiple single soccer bets.
And if we look at the raw numbers and compare some wagering situations,
punters would clearly see the many advantages of parlay football
betting, compared to the straight bet.
To summarize, parlay betting is
wagering on the outcome of two or more sporting events, where each of
the event must be a winner in order for the punter to collect on the
Let's do some basic math and
compare the winnings of three single soccer bets to that of just one
parlay bet. Let's say you have decided to bet on three Premier League
soccer games and you have chosen the outcome of all three games to be a
victory for the home team. To make the math much easier, we will assume
that all home team victories would pay out on 1.50 odds. We have also
chosen to bet €10
on each game and all of the three soccer games finish as winners for us.
If we placed three
separate bets on every soccer game, we would have wagered the total of
€30 and got back €45 by winning all three bets 3x(10x1.50)=45, pretty
simple and straight forward. Now, let's say that instead of betting
singles, we went with a parlay bet and wagered the entire €30 on that
parlay. If all the games came out as planned, we would have won the
whopping €101.25, 30x(3x1.50)=101.25, since in parlay betting the
winnings are calculated by multiplying the odds by each other and then
by the money wagered. As you can see by simply choosing the parlay bet
we have more than doubled our return, as compared to placing three
course, the risk is also much higher than it would be with a single bet.
As we said earlier, the parlay wager would be a winner only when all
games part of the parlay are winners, i.e. if one of the three games
don't go as planned, we would have lost the entire amount. But
mathematically speaking, the parlay betting is a much better way to win
big while wagering small on the soccer matches.
