Bet of the Week: Gooooal! Six-Leg MLB/Soccer Parlay Pays Big
In our Bet of the Week series, Tipico Sportsbook highlights one of the most notable wagers of the previous week.
A goal in the 88th minute netted a Tipico bettor nearly $4,000 on a 6-leg parlay in an MLB-soccer combination bet in our latest Bet of the Week!
And that’s the thing. Your parlay can include different sports and types of bets, as an earlier Bet of the Week proved with a blend of Nick Bosa and the Sacramento Kings.
On May 26, a Tipico customer from New Jersey wagered $80 at +4823 odds in a 6-leg parlay. This Tipico app user bet MLB moneylines, MLB totals, and soccer total goals markets for a total payout of $3,938.33.
In past editions of Bet of the Week, our featured bettors often needed their MLB picks to rally from behind. That wasn’t the case last week. Our bettor’s teams mostly rolled to big wins or took big leads and hung on to win.
But then there was SC Bastia v. AC Le Havre in a Ligue 2 match — that’s the second division of French soccer. Our better took the Over on an Over/Under of 1.5 goals, and the entire parlay was in jeopardy until Le Havre’s Samuel Grandsir found the net in the 88th minute for the match’s second goal.
“A parlay with long odds and a couple underdogs ended up being smooth sailing for this customer and a nice payout as well,” said Tipico Sportsbook Analyst Ryan Taylor.
The competition kicked off May 1, and our leaderboard is jumping. Click here to see the latest leaderboard updates and get full details on the 'Swing for the Fences' contest.
This is how it works: For every leg of a bet, you get one point. For each straight bet, you get one point. For a 3-Leg parlay, you get three points. A 4-leg parlay gets you four points. And so on...
Qualifying wagers must be $20 or more on MLB games or events with odds longer than -200 (equivalent to decimal odds higher than 1.5) or parlay wagers with combined odds longer than -200 (equivalent to decimal odds higher than 1.5).
Each month the top 100 bettors will win bets on us for an entire year. There will be five tiers, and the upper tier ('Grand Slam') -- consisting of the top 5 -- will receive $5,000 total in bets on us, spread out at $417 per month for 12 months.
The amount of bets on us for the top 100 monthly will equal $100,000 total.
