Payouts for Money Line Parlays (Lines are something other than -110)

Expected Value of a Straight Bet:

(1/2)(+$10) + (1/2)(-$11) = - $0.50

Winning 11 out of every 21 bets = 52.38… %

We will call the bets A, B, C, D, 1, 2, and 3, with the letters being winners and the numbers being losers.

Using a $10 wager:
