1. ## what is the difference between action reverse and a 2-team parlay?

action revrese and two-team parlays seems the same to me. is there a difference?

2. Action reverse is basically 2 seperate bets

say you bet 100 action reverse you are risking 220 to win 400

If your teams split you lose -120

Both lose = -220

Both win = +400

3. Really is a true parlay where if you bet 1st game and won and then you put it all on 2nd game

4. Difference is with \$100 parlay, if both games lose, you still lose just \$100. \$100 reverse is basically two \$100 IF bets back and forth, so if both games lose, you lose \$200.

That would be highly dependent on your means of judging one set of bets "better" than another.

9. Action reverse of 2 bets at -110
Lose both bets => -1.0000 units
Lose 1, Win 1 => -0.5455 units
Win both bets => +1.8182 units
EV at 4.545% juice per bet => -6.8182%

Parlay of 2 bets at -110
Lose both bets => -1.0000 units
Lose 1, Win 1 => -1.0000 units
Win both bets => +2.6446 units
EV at 4.545% juice (per bet) => -8.8843%

10. Looks like Ganch has your answer. If you're asking me personally there's no difference, simply because I lose at both.

11. Bump...I figure if I am looking this up, someone else may have the same question.

Reverse action & If bets vs parlay

12. thank you for the explanation.

13. So action reverse is better cuz we hardly win both.
