How to place a same game parlay in Maryland and the best place to do it with our Maryland same game parlay complete guide.
The Maryland sportsbooks offer welcome bonuses and other opportunities to entice you to sign up and play in the Old Line State. However, after you’ve used your bonuses, deposit matches, and other perks, what would make you continue betting at a sportsbook?
That’s where Maryland same game parlays come into play. These promos for existing users can help make game day just a little more exciting!

What Is a Same Game Parlay?
A same game parlay takes parlay betting – one of the most popular and potentially lucrative forms of sports betting – and twists the idea into betting on numerous occurrences in one game rather than betting on a combination of different games.
Here’s an example. a traditional parlay might have looked like this:
- Carolina Panthers +12 over Baltimore Ravens
- Washington Commanders -3 over Houston Texans
- Detroit Lions +3 over New York Giants
Let’s assume all three of these wagers are winners. Then, you’d win about $600 if you had wagered $100 on that parlay. Remember, in ANY parlay all the wagers must win to cash your bet. Even one bad result means the bet is a loser.
But in a same game parlay, you have a menu of options to bet within just one game. Let’s take the Ravens vs. Panthers as our example.

Same Game Parlay Example
It wouldn’t be a Maryland same game parlay example without including the Ravens, would it?
We can start with the +12 point spread at -110 odds. But of course parlays need at least two wagers. So let’s add in the under on a total of 41.5 points (also at -110 odds).
Carolina +12 and the Under 41.5 total points alone gives us parlay odds of +265. The number after a plus signs indicates how much you’ll win on a $100 bet, while the minus sign indicates what you must risk to win $100.
But we aren’t stopping there. Let’s continue down to some of the other options available for same game parlay betting. We’ll add Baltimore’s Lamar Jackson as an anytime touchdown scorer (meaning he must score a touchdown during the game) at +115 odds.
And just for fun, we’ll take Ravens tight end Mark Andrews to have more than (over) 4.5 receptions in the game. At odds of -180, here’s how your same game parlay would look:
|Carolina Panthers +12||-110|
|Under 41.5 total points||-110|
|Lamar Jackson anytime touchdown scorer||+115|
|Mark Andrews over 4.5 receptions||-180|
Now you’ve got a potential return of $950 on your $100 Maryland SGP wager – and they’re all results contained within one game. No need to flip channels or keep checking your phone if you want to watch Baltimore Ravens football and win money!

Why Are Same Game Parlays So Popular?
Same game parlays are popular because they’re the closest thing to playing the lottery in sports betting.
Using our example above, betting $110 to win back $100 on the Washington Commanders last Sunday would have been a winner. No one argues with a winner…but imagine turning that $100 into $950 like our example above?
Like any parlay wager, the payouts are high because the chances are low. Winning consistently on parlays of 10:1 odds or higher is not much of a betting strategy. But as a fun way to enjoy your favorite team’s game every week?
That’s just the start – when betting same game parlays, there’s almost no limit to what you can include in your wager. Add in a few longshots to that $950 parlay, and you’re looking at a jackpot payout if you’re lucky.
What Can I Bet in a Same Game Parlay?
Point spreads, money lines, and totals can be included in these same game parlay wagers, but that’s only the start. Here are some other bets available for a typical NFL contest.
Anytime Touchdown Scorer
Bet on just about any skill-position player in the game to cross the goal line. Note the player you bet must score the touchdown – throwing a touchdown pass does not count for this wager.
1st Touchdown Scorer
This is different from above in that the player needs to score the game’s FIRST touchdown for this wager to win. In return, you receive much more generous odds. For example, Lamar Jackson was +115 to score a touchdown on Sunday, but he was +750 to score the first touchdown.
Player Rushing/Receiving/Passing Totals
You can go with the oddsmakers’ number e.g. Lamar Jackson’s over/under for rushing yards at 62.5. Or, you can choose from a menu of higher or lower numbers to increase your odds or your payout (over 44.5 yards for Jackson could be -340; over 84.5 could be +275 odds).
Maybe you’ve only got time to watch the first half today? You could build a parlay of Baltimore Ravens to be ahead at halftime and over 16.5 points in the first half. You can even combine this with a bet like “which team will be first to score 10 points?”
Other examples are point totals, turnovers, even betting whether or not the game will go into overtime. With Maryland same game parlays, the possibilities and combinations (and payouts) are limitless.
Who Offers Same Game Parlays?
Same game parlays are becoming awfully popular. And SGPs aren’t limited to Maryland.
In fact, they’re available at DraftKings, FanDuel, BetMGM, and Caesars just to name a few.
You’ll notice they have different names – it can be same game parlay, like at DraftKings or Caesars, but single-game parlay seems to work just fine for FanDuel. And BetMGM prefers the simple ‘one-game parlay’.
By any name, they’re the hottest thing to hit sports wagering in a while. They combine the fun and potential for high payouts of parlay betting into one single event. Give it a try and good luck!
