    Hello everyone,

    Let's say I do a 4-game parlay and I win the first three. The fourth game hasn't started?

    Is it possible to cash out the ticket based on the 3 wins? Or do I need to bet the other side of the remaining game to lock in my profit?

    Thanks

    You'd have to hedge with another bet.

    But if you're going to do that, just buy a 3 team ticket.

    Maybe last minute news on fourth game, "game time" decision to play someone.
    Or just cold feet. Just like saying you will let a bet ride three times, but after the second win you chicken out.

    You can't cash it early. Hedge if you want or double up and bet the team you need!

    If the point spread moves this is hard right? You would have to bet against your last bet on the parlay for some amount.

    Yes you have to bet the other side.

    If the spread moves in the wrong direction you could set yourself up to get middled.

    But if it moves in the right direction you could middle them.

    Sounds like you bet online in the UK. :)

    Sorry, but in Vegas, you'll need to ride the ticket out.
