In a two team parlay, you only can lose the amount of the parlay bet regardless if both teams lose. (1000 parlay would lose 1000)

In a reverse, if both teams lose, you lose as if both teams were a single bet. (1000 reverse would lose 2200)

In a two team parlay, you will win 2600 if both teams win

In a reverse, you will win 4000 if both teams win

In a two team parlay, if the games split, you will lose 1000

In a two team reverse, if the games split, you will lose 1200


Therefore, the risk is at a constant with the parlay but the payoff is not as great. However, you need to lose both games in order for the parlay to be your advantage because a split would basically lose the same amount. If you think your losing both bets, which can happen, then maybe you shouldnt bet... lol

Green Bay has a switch the flip on come playoff time. Everything you saw in the regular season is to be forgotten. They are a different team. I can't wait to watch them play San Francisco (a team I put a $20 +450 futures wager on in February of last year).

Wow, Vikings +14 1/2 turned out to be a very good bet for you.

The parlay is looking good. I don't think Baltimore's offense can even score 14 points total

how would you compute the HE on a reverse bet? its easy to figure out how much youd lose per a given amount. like in your example: $4000(1/4)-$1200(2/4)-$2200(1/4). but what would you say your initial wager is? $1100? $2200? some other number?
