Abstract and Keywords

As bettors become more sophisticated, there is an increasing focus on bankroll risk management or how much to bet on certain opportunities. Bettors often face situations where multiple games are played simultaneously. Thus, the problem of allocating capital across different games or events must be considered, much the same as an investor allocating capital to different stocks in a portfolio. In this chapter, the use of accumulator bets (parlays) as part of a portfolio betting strategy is explored.

Keywords: betting, parlays, accumulators, risk, portfolio, simultaneous games
