Multi-sport parlays are a great way to take your sports betting and entertainment to new levels.

What’s a Multi-Sport Parlay?

Multi-sport parlays are exactly as the name implies: It’s a parlay wager with legs across at least two different sports.

Here’s an example:

  • Denver Nuggets moneyline (-150)
  • Edmonton Oilers moneyline (-175)
  • Vegas Golden Knights moneyline (-200)

The two-sport, three-leg parlay carried odds of +293. If you placed a $100 bet online, the payout would’ve been $292.87 (including stake) if all three teams won.

Why Build Multi-Sport Parlays?

Increased entertainment, better odds, and a bigger potential payout are among the reasons bettors build parlays.

Instead of — or in addition to — placing three separate $33 bets on the moneylines for the Nuggets, Oilers, and Golden Knights, that would pay a total of $156.36 (including stake), you could have a potential payout of nearly twice that amount with a three-team parlay with the same stake of $100.

While building multi-sport parlay opportunities at BetMGM, you can also take advantage of parlay promotions and various sports betting promotions.
