Betting Wandy away, and in Colorado, is not recommended.

That's literally the extent of it. Long term it's a sucker bet. Anything that decreases your likelihood of winning a bet is a poor choice. In the long run you're more likely to end up in the black if you just single bet one or two games that you like better and lay more money on the line. There are many ways that Vegas suckers people into giving their money away, and parlays is one of them. Hell, they even have teasers for football, which is less of a sucker bet, since you get to adjust spreads, but even those can be suckers because unlike a parlay, a push there causes a Loss, instead of dumping it to a lower parlay. I'm telling you from almost ten years and hundreds of thousands of dollars in placed bets in experience, nothing more, nothing less. Maybe somebody has a more mathematical argument, but in the same way I can spot a trap line with somewhat frequency, I can tell you that if you bet parlays with any sort of frequency over a reasonable period of time, you will lose, unless you were somehow magically going to win all those bets as solos as an unreasonably high rate.


right...same reason if you hit all 20 Keno numbers you get to become Emperor of Earth
now if you'll excuse me i need to get back to handicapping the sick Belmont Pick 6 Carryover
