The Parlay Calculator app indicates how much money sports bettors would win if they placed a bet on a certain number of games. For example; if I were to place a $20 wager on 3 football teams, at -110 money line odds, my parlay payout would be $119.16.

Therefore, the parlay calculator will count the amount of picks you have chosen (3), times the amount of each money line (-110), times your wager ($20) and then show you how much you would win on that wager ($119.16).

*Note: VERY IMPORTANT, make sure when putting in favorites, you add the minus in front of the number. Example: If the Boston Red Sox are a PK -150 favorite vs. the New York Yankees, enter “-150” in the box.

Same thing with NFL Football, if the New England Patriots are a -7 point favorite, enter (-110). If they are -220 on the money line, enter -220.

How much does it pay and how do you win a parlay?

In order for a parlay bet to win, every one of your wagers must win or push (tie). If any of the other selections on your ticket loses, your wager loses, regardless of the outcome on the other games. Also, if one or more selections is a tie, postponed, incomplete, cancelled or rescheduled for another day, then the wager reverts to the next lowest number. For example, if you place a 5 team parlay and have 4 winners and a tie, your wager pays out as a 4 team parlay. If you place a 2 team parlay and one team wins and one ties; the wager becomes a straight single bet.

What is a Parlay?

What is a “Parlay”? Two or more teams or totals can be combined to make one wager. Let’s say you bet $100 on the Pirates +150 and the Pirates over 8 at -120 in a two team parlay. Use the following steps to determine your winnings or should we say potential winnings.

Calculate the parlay factor for each piece. If the price of the piece is positive, simply add one to get the factor. If the price of the piece is negative, calculate the reciprocal, multiply by -1, and then add one (1.50 + 1 = 2.50 -1.20). Take the reciprocal or divide one by the negative price (1/1.20 = 0.83 + 1 = 1.83).

Multiply all factors. Multiply this factor times the bet amount. The result is the payoff (including your bet): 2.50 x 1.83 = 4.57. Now multiply the result by 100 (4.57x100). $457 is your total return if both pieces win (including your bet amount).

Subtract your bet from the figure calculated in 2. The result is your winnings $357 ($457 - $100 = $357). Did you get that? Or, go to www.parlaycalculator.com and let the calculator take care of it for you!
