Same-game parlays have quickly become one of the most popular wagers in sports betting. Many sportsbooks have begun to prioritize same-game parlays and put their own twists on them to attract sports bettors. Same-game parlays allow bettors to risk a little, yet give them a chance for big payouts.
These types of wagers are extremely popular during primetime or standalone games, meaning that same-game parlays (SGPs) will be a very common wager during Super Bowl 58. If you are not sure how to bet on the Super Bowl online, we have you covered.
Read below for a full breakdown of what a same-game parlay is as well as a tutorial, so you can create your own for 49ers vs Chiefs on Sunday.
What Is a Same-Game Parlay?
First and foremost, a same-game parlay is a feature offered by sportsbooks that allows bettors to combine multiple outcomes or prop bets from a single game into one bet slip. They are especially common in a primetime game, like the Super Bowl, because it is the only game on at that time. Bettors typically enjoy having multiple bets on a game at once, so same-game parlays give these bettors a chance to have a higher payout without risking a large wager.
Bettors can add the spread, moneyline, and total to their Super Bowl same-game parlay as well as individual player props. Sportsbooks also offer alternate lines for same-game parlays that bettors can take advantage of to increase their chances of winning. There are many types of Super Bowl props you can add to your same-game parlay, making the possibilities endless.
An example of this is that the Chiefs are 2-point underdogs to the 49ers in the current Super Bowl 58 odds. Historically, Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs have done well as underdogs both against the spread and straight up. To play into that, you could move the spread to Chiefs +3.5 to give yourself some wiggle room and that leg would still hit even if Kansas City loses by a field goal. The odds are worse on that individual leg, but when you add more player props to your same-game parlay, you will still have the opportunity to win big.
The flexibility of Super Bowl props gives you a better chance to win your same-game parlay.
How Do I Make a Same-Game Parlay Bet on the Super Bowl?
Now that you know what a same-game parlay is as well as some of its advantages, it is time to learn how you can make your own for Super Bowl 58. First, go to one of your favorite Super Bowl betting apps. For this example, we will use the FanDuel Sportsbook app.
Click on the Super Bowl or the Super Bowl LVIII tab to bring you to the NFL odds. This will bring you to this screen.
After this, you will want to click on “More Wagers”. After you do this, you will see a “Same Game Parlay” tab. Here you will see the game lines as well as Super Bowl NFL player props sorted by individual player. Scroll down to find the players that you want to include in your same-game parlay. If you continue scrolling you will see more game props and alternate spreads and totals. The top prop underneath the game lines is the touchdown scorers tab. So, what is a TD prop bet? You need the player you select to either score the first, last, or any touchdown.
To add a bet to your same-game parlay, you simply need to tap on it. Once you do that, it will get added to your bet slip. Scroll through the markets to find what you like. Do that until you are happy with your Super Bowl 58 same-game parlay. Remember, the payout will be bigger with the more legs that you add, but it will be less likely to win. Just add the legs you feel most comfortable about.
For this example, we already discussed Chiefs +3.5. We will also add the over in the full game.
Travis Kelce 6+ receptions will also make this Super Bowl same-game parlay. Kelce is Mahomes’ favorite target, especially in the playoffs, so this feels like a solid bet. Then lastly, it would not be a parlay without including Christian McCaffery to score a touchdown at any time. McCaffrey has scored at least one touchdown in 15 of 18 games played this season. Those are all strong same-game parlay picks.
You probably noticed that the bet slip continues to grow at the bottom of your screen as you add more selections. When you are satisfied with your same-game parlay, tap the bet slip at the bottom of your screen to display all your selections. This will also show what the odds are for your same-game parlay. Look it over to make sure that everything is correct, then add how much you would like to bet. Finally, select “place bet” at the bottom. This example gives us +417 odds for these four legs to hit, so a $10 bet would win $41.77.
You are now ready to make your own same-game parlay for Super Bowl 58. Open your favorite sportsbook app to get started. Before you get started, be sure to check out the best Super Bowl bonuses available.
