Understanding Same Game Parlays

A Same Game Parlay, often abbreviated as SGP, is a bet that combines multiple propositions (props) and straight bets within a single game. This betting option has gained popularity recently, offering a unique way to engage with your favorite sports.

Identifying SGP Eligible Games

To find games eligible for SGPs on DraftKings Sportsbook, look for the “SGP” icon. This icon indicates that the game line allows for same-game parlay betting.

NBA Example of a Same Game Parlay

Imagine you’re interested in an NBA game between the Miami Heat and the Phoenix Suns. You want to create an SGP that includes the following bets:

  • Jimmy Butler to score over 20 points
  • Kevin Durant to make at least 2 three-pointers
  • Miami Heat to win by more than 5 points

In this SGP, you’re betting on specific player performances and the game’s outcome. All these individual bets need to hit for your parlay to win.

Why Choose Same Game Parlays?

SGPs offer a creative way to bet on sports. They allow you to combine your knowledge of different aspects of a game into a single bet. While they can be riskier, the potential for higher payouts makes them an attractive option for many bettors.

Tips for Building Your SGP

  • Focus on Player and Game Insights: Use your knowledge of the teams and players to make informed choices for your parlay.
  • Balance Risk and Reward: While SGPs can offer higher payouts, remember to balance the potential risks.
