How to Instantly Compare Parlay Payouts at Different Sportsbooks
Line shopping is easy when betting a single point spread. Just head to our live odds page, choose the sportsbooks you use and see who has the best price. We surface the best line in green.
With parlays, it’s always been harder. You don’t want to plug in all five teams into 10 different sportsbooks to see who has the best price, so you just bet wherever is most convenient.
In The Action Network app and our odds pages, we’ll do the hard work for you by automatically comparing the parlay payout at multiple sportsbooks based on the teams you select, and you only have to select the teams once.
We do not have same-game parlays available right now; it works best with spreads, moneylines and totals.
Here’s a video example of how it works from the NFL season, and I break down a college basketball/NHL parlay below.
In the App
I’ve put together a bizarre parlay, at or near the following prices.
- Longwood -275
- Northern Iowa -350
- Richmond +160
- Red Wings +230
- NJ Devils +140
In The Action Network app, just track bets like you normally would by clicking the bet cells, then select parlay at the top of the bet slip.
Scroll down and you can see the payout at all your sportsbooks with this combination.
As you can see, SugarHouse (which uses the same odds provider at Barstool and BetRivers) has the best price on this parlay at +3375 odds.
A few others are close, but PointsBet is all the way down at +3030, so you’d be sacrificing almost 3.5 units if it cashes. The prices differ because books have different lines on each game.
The beauty is that if you swap out a team, it will update automatically.
After swapping out Longwood for Drake and the Penguins for the Red Wings, DraftKings now has the best price, with SugarHouse just behind.
The process is the same on our odds page: click the bet cells and they’ll populate in the bet slip on the right side of your screen.
The red numbers next to each book in the bet slip indicate how many units you’re sacrificing by betting it at a book other than SugarHouse (again, same company as BetRivers if that’s available in your state).
