LOL. At most you could have won nothing. Maybe the site decided to punish you for risking something for nothing.



I know it sounds stupid to bet a dollar on -950 odds, but that dollar let me do a two-bout parlay that paid out way better than if I had just done a straight bet on one bout.



No. You could have put that dollar on Werdum like you did the other $999 (which was a good bet by the way), and then kept you parley as well.

You shouldn't have lost your dollar, but it is a glitch no one in their right mind would ever encounter because it makes no sense to risk something for no possibility of return. It wouldn't be worth paying a programmer to fix it.

So what happens if you bet $1 on a -105. Are we in round-up mode or does any $1 bet on negative odds not pay out at all. I really don't care at all, I just want to know now that I've read this thread.

Not sure. This is all a new revelation. You should bet a dollar on BJ to see. I would do it but I got 20k on Fitch.

I thought to have a parlay you had to bet at least something on each of your picks.

yes and it meant exactly that. To win positive money you needed to bet more than the $1 you did

You have been here for almost 4 years and just now find out that you dont have to bet at least something on each of your picks of a parlay. Save the "" for that comment

No, you just have to put at least half your money on individual picks. You can put someone in your parlay without betting on them individually.

As far as I've seen, you don't need to have ANY other bets in order to do a parlay. A parlay is just another bet; you can run just the parlay, just straight bets, or a combination of the two. Give it a shot.

Great, and maybe in another four years you can figure out this thread.

I don't get it honestly. You can't lose money when you pick a winner.
