NFL same-game parlays are available for Week 3 games at top online betting sites. SGPs are multi-leg wagers on a single game, and they continue to grow in popularity. You build a bet with two or more wagers, such as a team to win and a player to score a touchdown, and you win if each of your selections is correct.
This week concludes with a doubleheader on Monday Night Football. It’ll be the Eagles at the Buccaneers kicking off first, followed by the Rams visiting the Bengals. Let’s take a look at how to bet on NFL same-game parlays.

Baker Mayfield is off to a solid start as the new QB1 in Tampa Bay, completing 69.1 percent of his passes for 490 yards and three TDs. Rachaad White leads the team with 112 rushing yards. Mike Evans has hauled in 12 of 18 targets for 237 yards and two scores.

The final game of Week 3 is a rematch from Super Bowl LVI in which the Rams defeated the Bengals by a score of 23-20. Los Angeles pulled out a road upset over the Seahawks in the opener, and followed with a home loss to the 49ers. Cincinnati is 0-2 with losses to the Browns and Ravens. There are concerns that Joe Burrow’s calf injury will continue to be an issue. He’s questionable for tonight and appears to be headed towards being a game-time decision.
Matthew Stafford has already racked up 641 passing yards, but he has only thrown a single TD versus a pair of INTs. Kyren Williams has rushed for three scores and is now the official leader in the backfield after the team traded Cam Akers to the Vikings. Rookie receiver Puka Nacua has been a revelation, snagging 25 of 35 targets for 266 yards. He’s questionable for MNF with an oblique injury. Burrow has struggled through two games, throwing for 304 yards, one TD, and two picks. Ja’marr Chase is off to a very slow start with 10 receptions for 70 yards.
What are NFL same-game parlays?
For a standard parlay, bettors can combine wagers from multiple games and sports. Same-game parlays let you do the same thing with wagers from a single game. Just like a traditional parlay, you have to be correct on all of the legs of a same-game parlay in order to win. If you get just a single pick wrong, your parlay loses.
Part of the appeal is the potential return. The payout goes up based on the number of legs you include and the odds for each leg of the bet. However, it’s always best to balance any potential winnings against the risk, as this is a tough bet to win consistently.
What’s available in NFL SGPs?
Odds and payouts for NFL same-game parlays
The odds and potential payouts for same-game parlays will vary based on the number of legs that you include, the odds for each leg, and how much you bet. For example, let’s consider this Week 1 game line from the FanDuel betting app.
Let’s say that we like the Bills to win the game outright and for the total to go over 52.5 points. We simply have to click on the odds for those two choices to add them to the slip.
By adding the two choices together, we get odds of +250. For a $50 bet, we could win back $125.38 if we got both our picks correct. Here’s what happens if we add a spread bet:
We’ve added in another variable, but the odds have only increased slightly. What gives? In this case, the Bills winning the game outright and covering by a single point is a highly correlated play. The sportsbook isn’t about to pay us a premium for that outcome.
When betting on SGPs, pay close attention to the odds as you add selections to your slip. One of the knocks against this type of bet is that bettors aren’t getting a fair shake from sportsbooks when it comes to the potential payout in relation to the risk.
While that may have some truth to it in certain cases, the bottom line is that bettors can vote with their wallets on what is or isn’t fair. If you’re not happy with the odds that you’re getting for an SGP or another bet at your book of choice, then see if there are better odds elsewhere.
NFL same-game parlay house rules
The standard same-game parlay rules apply everywhere: All of your selections must be from the same contest. If you get all of the legs correct, you win. Otherwise, you lose.
An individual sportsbook may also have its own rules for SGPs. For example, here’s a summary of the house rules at DraftKings for same-game parlays:
- A game is abandoned in the event that it does not start in the originally scheduled week of the league (Thursday to Wednesday for the NFL).
- If the game starts but is then postponed to outside of the same scheduling week, then it’s abandoned.
- For all player bets, the player must play at least one snap for bets on him to have action. Players who do not do so count as “non-participating players.” Bets will be void for players who appear as “inactive” or “did not play.”
While there’s a lot of uniformity in sports betting, house rules can vary for individual bets. As a result, it’s good practice to review the rules wherever you plan to bet on the NFL this season so that you know what to expect.
Strategy for NFL same-game parlays
While this is a challenging wager, there are a few ways to improve your chances. Here’s a trio of tips to keep in mind while building SGP tickets:
- Correlated plays: You can look for outcomes that tend to tie together. For example, if you expect a star QB to light it up, then one or two of his top targets could potentially be in line for big games, as well. On the opposite end, if you think a strong defensive effort is coming for one side, then the opposing offense could come up short.
- Look beyond offense: Offense tends to sell tickets and attract eyeballs in the NFL. As such, much of the betting public will focus on offensive production and lean toward the over. Bettors who dig deeper into the less glamorous aspects of the game may find some gems. While doing your research, spend some time on props for the kickers and defenses.
- Keep it realistic: While it’s natural to dream of a big score, the chances of hitting a 10-leg SGP are astronomical. Sure, it could happen, but you have a much better chance of winning with two, three or four legs. If you like the entertainment factor of a massive SGP, then play for fun at very small stakes. However, if you’re looking for real chances to win, make the bets realistic.
Are NFL same-game parlays worth it?
Ultimately, the answer to this question comes down to personal preference. Same-game parlays offer the chance to win big, but they are difficult to win consistently. It’s imperative to understand and be comfortable with the risk vs. the reward.
From an entertainment perspective, a same-game parlay can certainly enhance your enjoyment of a game. Depending on what you bet on, you could have something to root for right from the opening kickoff through to the final whistle.
You should always bet responsibly with disposable income that you can afford to lose. If you like the fun of putting together SGPs and the rooting interest they provide, they can be worth it. For those who prefer a little more predictability, SGPs may not be for you.
Are NFL same-game parlays available at all sportsbooks?
Same-game parlays for the NFL are available at many top legal online sportsbooks, including DraftKings, BetMGM, Caesars, and FanDuel. However, the exact name of the wager may vary by sportsbook. For example, BetMGM calls them “one game” parlays.
How do you win NFL same-game parlays?
To win a same-game parlay, you need to get all of its individual legs correct. If any of them end up being wrong, though, you lose. As always, there are no guarantees with sports betting. It’s impossible to win all the time, so be sure to bet responsibly.
What happens to same-game parlays if the sportsbook voids one leg?
Most sportsbooks will consider the entire parlay void if they void one leg. However, you should review the house rules wherever you play, as individual books can have their own specific rules for something like this.
