How To Place A Parlay on The FanDuel Sportsbook App

Last Updated:

If you’re new to the FanDuel Sportsbook app and wondering how to place a parlay, you’ve come to the right place. Betting Hero is here to help. We’ve prepared a comprehensive guide to help you understand and place parlays effectively. Let’s start by explaining what a parlay is and then dive into a real-world NBA parlay example.

Understanding Parlays on FanDuel

A parlay is a type of bet that combines multiple outcomes into one wager. To win a parlay, every individual outcome within it must win. This complexity offers higher potential rewards compared to single bets.

The Appeal of Parlays

  • Higher Potential Payouts: Since parlays involve multiple outcomes, they offer the chance for larger payouts.
  • Added Excitement: Combining several bets into one parlay adds a layer of excitement to your sports betting experience.

Real NBA Parlay Example

Imagine you’re interested in placing a parlay on NBA games. You decide to bet on the following outcomes:

  • Los Angeles Lakers to win against the Golden State Warriors
  • New York Knicks to cover the spread against the Boston Celtics
  • Miami Heat vs. Houston Rockets game to hit over the total points

In this parlay, you need the Lakers to win, the Knicks to cover the spread, and the Heat-Rockets game to go over the total points for your parlay to win.

Placing a Parlay on FanDuel Sportsbook App

When you select multiple bets on the FanDuel Sportsbook app, they appear on your bet slip. You can choose to place each bet individually or combine them into a parlay for potentially greater returns.

Strategies for Successful Parlay Betting

  • Choose Wisely: Pick outcomes that you have researched well and feel confident about.
  • Understand the Odds: Be aware of the odds for each selection in your parlay, as they determine the potential payout.

Balancing Risk and Reward

While parlays offer higher rewards, they also come with increased risk. Balancing these aspects is crucial for a responsible betting strategy.

Step 1: Build Your Parlay From Available Events on FanDuel

Once you have the FanDuel Sportsbook App opened and are logged in, the first step is finding the events you want to build your parlay with. You can search for the events by scrolling the home screen or using the All Sports Menu.

In the video above, I am parlaying the Celtics and the Warriors on the point spread. To do this, I click on the Boston Celtics (1.5) tab in the Celtics vs. Bucks game line listing. I then scroll down to the Grizzlies vs. Warriors game line and click the Warriors -8 tab.

Any time you click on a line on the FanDuel Sportsbook app, that bet is automatically added to your “Betslip”. The bet isn’t confirmed until you enter a wager amount and send it to the sportsbook, however, so you can click on as many bets as you want to see how the odds stack up in a parlay.

You can click the “Betslip” tab at the bottom of the app at any time to bring up your current bets.

Step 2: Enter the Amount You'd Like to Wager

After selecting the legs of your parlay, the next step is to enter your wager amount. To do so, tap on the bet slip and type in the amount you want to wager in the parlay section. You’ll find the parlay section at the bottom of the bet slip.

For instance, in the video clip, you would place your wager amount in the “Wager” field under the “2-Leg Parlay” header. That field shows the payout odds of a two-leg parlay made from the Warriors and Celtics point spread bets.

Keep in mind that once you click the “Place Bet” button, the wager becomes final. Also note that the bet isn’t placed until you click the “Place Bet” button.

What states allow FanDuel parlays?

You can bet parlays at FanDuel Sportsbook in all states in which FanDuel Sportsbook legally operates. That list includes more than 15 states and counting.

How do you make a FanDuel same-game parlay?

Any game or event that’s eligible for same-game parlays will have an “SGP” tab at the bottom left of the game line listing. You can click the “SGP” link (the same-game parlay tab) to bring up all the same game parlay bets that you can choose in that particular game.

Keep in mind that not all games/events include the option to make a same-game parlay bet.

Can you have multiple parlays on FanDuel?

Yes. There’s no limit to how many different parlays you can make at the same time at FanDuel Sportsbook. Much like single bets, you can place as many bets as you’d like at any given time at FanDuel.

A convenient way to make multiple parlays from a given list of bets is to use the “round robin” option, which splits a list of wagers into smaller groups of parlays. For more on round robin betting at FanDuel click here.

Do you have to hit every leg on a FanDuel parlay bet to win?

Yes. For example, if you place a four-team parlay, all four teams have to win for the parlay to win. If even one team loses, the entire parlay bet loses. If all four teams win, you win the bet at the parlay odds given for that particular ticket.
