It would depend if you are picking straight on the line or a teaser. Why would you want to bet like that? It really tips the odds in the houses favor no matter how you bet it.

Just a 14 team parley with the spreads! I'm assuming it would be some ridiculous odds

My guess is like 10-12 times at most.

At the beginning of the year you can try to pick the Sunday games for like a dollar and try for a million. Other then that they really do not pay.


My advice is pick a game, two or three that you feel the strongest about. I usually only touch over/unders Moreso then teams.

Just looked it up and I was wrong. If there ever were a way wrong, it would apply here.


14 parley can pay up to 900 to 1

Assuming each game is a 50% chance like it should be my math says:
.5^14=.000061
This means odds to hit it are roughly 1:16,400. You should technically get like 15000:1 but more realistically I think is around 5 or 10 thousand to 1

I use to do a 15 teamer in MLB Baseball when I lived in Reno. There's only 1 sportsbook out there allowing you to do it anymore. The max for football, is 12 teams on the parlay cards, 8 off the boards. They DO have different payouts. For baseball, it paid $12,000 to 1. So I would make take a shot at $24,000 for a $2 bet. It's a long shot, but for $2, I'll take those odds.

I was there 4 years. Know how many of them I hit? 0. I DID have 2 days where I got 0 out of 15. Should've been paid for that since it's the same odds to get all wrong as all right. 8 teamers are hard enough to hit in football, just stick with 5 or 6 max. Easiest way to do it is to put half college and half NFL.

I think I know what this guy wants to do though. You're planning to do a 14 team Bowl Game Parlay, aren't you?

and this is why teasers and parlays are sucker bets they don't pay the true odds.
