Is there anyway to wager on just one or two games with your ‘total’ options?2017-03-21T11:24:30+00:00

No, see BELOW: the rules are specific in that we have to wager on at least three separate games. Example:

1 Seahawks * -7½ 2 Packers +7½
3 Sea/GB Over 46½ 4 Sea/GB Under 46½
5 Patriots * -6½ 6 Colts +6½
7 NE/IND Over 53½ 8 NE/IND Under 53½
9 Team Carter –½ 10 Team Irvin
11 NFC -2½ 12 AFC +2½
13 NFC/AFC Over 49½ 14 NFC/AFC Under 49 ½

In the above example, there are four games but there are 14 total choices in which you could choose up to 7 for a maximum payout of up to a 7 play parlay. Again, you must touch upon at least three separate games. A selection of 1, 3 and 5 would NOT constitute a wager and neither would a selection of 1,3,5,7 because even though there are four selections, the above only involves the outcome of two games. A 3rd and separate game such as a selection on #10 would need to be used to make a 3rd and separate game. A selection of 1,3,5,7,10 if all were correct, would payout on 5 selections but again, only involves, and has to involve, 3 separate games.
