NBA playoffs (series bets/parlays)

This may be a slightly strange question/situation but thought I'd throw it out there.

I'm looking to make bets on a specific series in the first round of the nba playoffs. however, it looks like I hit the website's max bet limit for a particular bet.

Slightly dissapointed and wanting to get more money on the series, I realized that if I parlay my bet with the warriors/clippers (betting gs obviously) it let me bet more. perhaps its considered a new type of a bet? im not 100% sure but did I find a loophole or am I reading too much into this?

the warriors series bet is something ridiculous like -100,000.

Re: NBA playoffs (series bets/parlays)

are you saying you parlay each individual game with the series bet? or a different series bet with the warriors/clippers series bet? either way doesn't sound like any loophole to me if it's a parlay involved. now if you were somehow (and I dont even know how this is possible) parlaying the spread of games with the outcome that might not be allowed (not a loophole, you just cant bet effectively the spread and ML parlay on the same side of a game.)

Thanks for the reply

What I did was max out my bets on series A. No individual game bets.

Then I parlayed series A with the gs/lac series and it “re-opened” the betting allowing me to bet more on series A.

Now I know that I’ve added “risk” but assuming the warriors win I feel like I’m just adding to my series A bets, which was my original goal.

Unless I’m missing some weird online betting rules. I’m probably reading too much into this.

This is standard. If you hit the max on a certain straight bet, you can still parlay it.

I bet $1000 on denver spurs series

It wouldn’t allow me to bet anymore

However they do allow me to bet on the denver/spurs series if parlayed wirh Golden State/Clippers

Which I thought seemed odd and a no risk way of betting more on denver spurs

Until last nights game 2. lol. Now I see why they allow it.

The LA Clippers told me to tell you they want you to sweat this out.

That anomaly of a game notwithstanding, your strategy is solid. The Warriors win this series a vast majority of the time.
