PointsBet has become the first sportsbook to offer live same game parlays for NFL and NBA games, the company said in a press release Thursday. Same game parlays (SGPs) have been popular in the sports betting world for a while now, though they’ve always been exclusively for pre-game bets. Now, PointsBet is shaking things up and offering live same game parlays on professional basketball and football matchups.

About PointsBet Live Same Game Parlays

The launch of PointsBet’s live same game parlay options is fuelled by the company’s OddsFactory technology integration. Bettors can fire up a same game parlay while a game is in progress, all while tracking odds, stats, and player performance.

“At PointsBet, we’re focused on refining our technology to ensure we’re aligning with the type of online sports betting experience our customers seek, and based on the trends we’re tracking, sports fans and bettors not only want to bet live, but they also want the ability to build a same game parlay live,” said Mark Hughes, Group Chief Operating Officer at PointsBet.”We’re thrilled to now be able to offer live same game betting opportunities to our customers, and to be the first sportsbook to do so is a testament to our team’s commitment to providing the best product and enhancing the user experience.”

Bettors can select any in-progress NBA or NFL game within the PointsBet app, then select the “same game parlay” tab to kickstart the process. PointsBet users can also boost their live same game parlays using the sportsbook’s daily Parlay Booster.

“Elevating the betting experience for our customers and tapping into innovation is part of PointsBet’s core mission,” said Kyle Christensen, Chief Marketing Officer at PointsBet USA. “With the addition of our exclusive, live betting feature, we now have another way to help sports fans, and bettors embody the Live Your Bet Life mantra.”
