Baseball parlays offer bettors fat payouts with very little risk. On the flip side, their not easy to hit as all games of a parlay must win in order to cash your betting ticket.
A parlay, is a bet in which you select two more more teams (usually capped at 15) to win. As previously noted, all must win in order for your "parlay card" to be deemed a winner. You may also know this bet to be called a "combo" or a multiple."
When it comes to baseball parlays, there are no set payouts as in football. The reason for this is that there isn't a spread, your dealing with moneyline odds here. To calculate baseball parlays, we must turn the odds into decimals. Use the factor corresponding to the line if you are betting on the favorite; if betting on the underdog add 1 to the line.
Taking the Devil Rays +220 and the Brewers -135 in a 2 team parlay for $100 100(wager) x 3.2 x 1.74 - 100(wager)= $457
3 team parlay taking the Mariners +148, Cardinals EVEN and A's -119 for $100 100(wager) x 2.48 x 2.00 x 1.840 - 100(wager)= $813
