What is an NBA Same Game Multi?

An NBA Same Game Multi is pretty new in terms of punting. Same Game Multi’s haven’t been around for too long, but there’s a pretty big reason why they’re becoming such a fan favourite.

A Same Game Multi is a pretty simple and specific type of bet.

You can combine different single bets in any NBA Match, that merge into one Multi Bet.

The payment and odds begin to rise with every leg you add, and become much more substantial than the single.

For NBA Same Game Multi’s you’re able to choose up to 12 legs with most betting agencies, including Australia’s biggest, Sportsbet.

Things work a little differently over at TAB, where you can add a maximum of 10 legs.

Now, you’re probably musing:

‘How does it all work!?’

We’re more than happy to explain!

Instead of playing a bet on ‘Lebron James to hit 5 3-Pointers’, you can instead combine this with other bets you think will get up. Then, hopefully with a little luck, you can get more bang for your buck!

If you navigate to any market within the NBA, you will see an ‘All Markets’ or ‘Same Game Multi’ Button. Click on the Same Game Multi Icon and add your selections one by one.

They will automatically accumulate in your Bet Slip – Calculating the odds for you as you go!

NBA Same Game Multi Tips & Strategy

Quick Tips:

Well, coming from someone who loves a Same Game Multi, there are always a few cheeky things to consider:

Quick Tips:

  • Don’t worry if a single gets voided. Providing all other legs of your Same Game Multi win, your bet will be still be paid out for the price of your remaining legs… only the odds from your voided single will be removed
  • Do worry if one of your players is removed or ejected from the match, the leg will still stand and you won’t be getting paid out!
  • Don’t worry if you have a bonus bet and you aren’t quite sure what to do with it, you’re able to put bonus bets on any NBA Same Game Multi!
  • Do worry if your Same Game Multi is going well and you decide to cash out before all legs are completed, you can’t ever cash out on a Same Game Multi
  • Don’t worry if odds are fluctuating on Singles – this is only natural for every betting agency, and you might even snag yourself a higher price!


How The Pros Place Same Game Multi Bets

  • Always check out any Specials or Promos that may be running, it’s good to have a safety net!
  • Never put a Win/Head to Head in your Multi, you’re already restricting your win
  • Always check stats, just by googling ‘Jimmy Butler’ you can head straight to his profile and check out all his stats, including averages for the year
  • Never get enticed by ridiculous odds, there’s a reason the price is so high, and safe money and winning money is better than no money!
  • Always check out what players with similar stats are paying, there’s a pretty good chance that you’ll be able to find someone in similar form paying a little bit more for whatever you’re keen to punt on
  • Never put something in your Same Game Multi you’re only half sure about, just take that leg out!
  • Always check out who is up in defence for whatever player you’re planning on punting on, a good defender can easily limit scoring.

NBA Same Game Multi Bet Example

Here is a list of some of the single bets you may find in an NBA match against Heat V Celtics:

  • Heat to Win against Celtics – Odds: $1.80
  • Tyler Herro to hit 5 3’s – Odds: $2.10
  • Jimmy Butler to get a Triple Double – $3.30

Instead of placing three individual bets, you can instead combine them into a Same Game Multi.

This means that instead of putting $5 on Heat to Win and getting a return of $9, you can put $5 on Heat to Win, Tyler Herro to Hit 5 3’s, AND Jimmy Butler to get a Triple Double for a significantly higher return.

Many people prefer to place a Same Game Multi, as they prefer both higher odds and higher return that you will not get from a single bet.

Now, you may be asking yourself:

‘What if I’m almost home and one of my legs fails!?’

Usually, this involved placing a Same Game Multi above 3 Legs, and if one of the legs fails, you get your money back in bonus bets!
