How To Place A DraftKings Parlay

Last Updated:

Parlay betting is one of, if not the most popular bet placed on online sportsbooks.  Learn what a parlay is and how to place one on the DraftKings Sportsbook App by watching our step-by-step tutorial.

What Is A Parlay Bet?

A parlay bet is a single wager on the outcome of two or more events. In a parlay, every bet on the ticket must win in order for the parlay to win.

Parlay bets offer the potential for higher payouts compared to single bets because the odds of each individual selection are multiplied together to determine the overall odds of the parlay. As a result, the more selections you include in your parlay, the higher the potential payout, but the greater the risk, as all selections must win for the bet to be successful.

For example, let’s say you want to bet on three football games:

  1. Team A to win
  2. Team B to win
  3. Team C to win

If you place three separate individual bets and each team wins, you would receive the payout for each individual bet. However, if you combine all three bets into a parlay and all three teams win, the potential payout would be higher than if you had placed each bet separately. On the other hand, if just one of the teams loses, the entire parlay bet is lost.

Parlay bets can be an exciting way to potentially win big with a smaller initial stake, but they come with higher risk due to the requirement of all selections being correct. As such, they are generally considered a more challenging and risky form of sports betting.

How much does a $100 three-team parlay pay?

The payout for a $100 three-team parlay bet depends on the odds of each individual selection and the sportsbook’s specific parlay payout rules. When you bet parlay, the odds of each selection are combined, and the potential payout is determined by multiplying these odds together.
