Super Bowl Power Rankings

In 1989 Jake “The Fizz” Fizzario, the bastard son of a loose gypsy woman, commandeered Caesers Palace’s $100,000 Parlay Challenge, winning a 10-team parlay, and becoming the official: Las Vegas Parlay King.

In 1990, Clark County casinos stopped accepting anything more than 3 team parlays from Fizzario or any known associates.

The parlay is the most popular of the exotic bets offering the biggest bang for the buck.

Parlay Odds:

2 teams 13-5
3 teams 6-1
4 teams 10-1
5 teams 25-1
6 teams 40-1
7 teams 75-1
8 teams 150-1
9 teams 300-1
10 teams 600-1

The odds of the payoff are much less than the true odds. The true odds, for example, of winning a three-team parlay are 7-1;  the payoff is only 6-1. The true odds of hitting a 10-team parlay are 1,023-1;  the payoff is 600-1.

For most people, the parlay is not a good bet.

For The Fizz, it was money in the bank.
