Default Parlay Bets Rock! Where to bet?

So I won my first sports bet ! Learned a lot by sitting and talking with a random guy at MGM before the Mayweather vs Cotto fight.

I did a parlay bet on the 76ers and Lakers, with a Money line on the lakers. Got 4x+ back.

Now mny next bet, I want to go with San Antonio, Lakers, Miami, Indiana, Boston, & 76ers..

Where should I goto bet on the Strip? Anyone offe better returns or is every hotel the same?

ANd can you do a parlay bet over 3 days of games?

Before you proceed any further I strongly suggest you research the perils of sucker (aka parlay) bets.


In addition, don't underestimate the potential for bias in the NBA playoffs. The L.A./Denver game being a clear example of referee influence. Bear in mind that I had no wager on this game, just my(and George Karl's) observation .

You should play the parlay cards. You can put like 15 games and for only 2$ you can win $80000.

The odds of choosing 15 games correctly are so low that you'd be better off playing Keno or buying lottery tickets. Parlay bets are basically free money for the sports books.

lol I just won a parlay bet + money-line. The NBA Playoffs are very predictable right now. Look at the point win averages. 1st Round is VERY LOP-SIDED

With the odds against winning, they should give you the hotel if you hit a 15-team parlay.

As many have said, parlay cards are well known as sucker bets. The sports books lure bettors in with the potential of a big payoff for a small investment, when the reality is that your chances of winning drop significantly with each additional game bet. They make money by offering you odds far below your chances of actually hitting anything. It's the sports equivalent of a keno ticket.

C'mon tons of people hit those million dollar Stations parlay cards. By the way I make a living off those parlay cards and have never even played one.

The Vegas sportsbooks all cater to the chain-smoking $2 10-team better, it's like the banks with their garbage ATM fees. They're all wh*res... they don't care if you respect them in the morning.

Walk into Caesar's sportsbook and tell the manager (blonde with the poodle hairdoo and beanbag chair behind) you want to lay 5 dimes on a side and watch her face morph into large Marge, it's hilarious!

NBA FIXED Game 7 of the 2010 Finals - YouTube

Tim Donaghy has already testified to the FBI how Stern rigged playoff games so the Lakers would win, it's all about the bottom line.

Crooked like a snake.
