What is a Same Game Parlay (SGP) Bet?

single game parlay betting

A same-game parlay bet, also known as an “SGP” a “bet builder” or a “single-game parlay,” is a type of sports wager where bettors can combine multiple outcomes from a single game into one bet. Unlike traditional parlays where bets are placed on separate events, such as different games or matches, same-game parlays allow bettors to create custom bets within a single game.

How Single Game Parlay Bets Work

Here’s how same-game parlay bets typically work. Bettors can choose from a variety of outcomes within a single game, including but not limited to:

Point spread: Betting on whether a team will win or lose by a certain number of points. Moneyline: Betting on which team will win the game outright. Over/under: Betting on whether the total combined score of both teams will be over or under a certain number. Player props: Betting on individual player performances, such as total points, rebounds, assists, or specific achievements during the game.

Combining Outcomes

Bettors can select multiple outcomes and combine them into one bet slip. For example, a same-game parlay could include betting on a team to win, the total points scored in the game to be over a certain number, and a specific player to score a certain number of points.

Better Odds For SGPs

Same-game parlays often offer better odds compared to traditional bets, as they involve multiple outcomes. However, the more outcomes included in the parlay, the higher the potential payout, but also the greater the risk of losing the bet if any one outcome does not occur.

Unlike traditional parlays, which require separate bets for each event, same-game parlays are placed as a single bet slip. This makes it convenient for bettors to track their wagers and potential payouts for the entire parlay.

How are Single Bet Parlays Paid Out?

Same-game parlay bets are settled after the conclusion of the game based on the outcomes selected by the bettor. If all selected outcomes occur as predicted, the bettor wins the parlay and receives the corresponding payout. However, if any one outcome does not occur, the entire parlay is considered a loss.
