How does a 6 pick round robin work?
How does a Round Robin Work? A round-robin bet is a parlay or teaser with three or more games, or "legs," where you are actually betting multiple smaller combinations involving your selections instead of lumping them into one must-win-all wager.
How Does a Round Robin Bet Pay Out? A round robin bet pays out based on the total winnings of each parlay in the entire round robin wager. For example, a $15 three-team round robin bet with each team lined at -110 would pay out a total of $39.67.
How Do You Win a Round Robin Bet? In order to win a round robin bet, each leg of the round robin must hit – similar to any parlay bet. If all three teams you chose are winners, round robin payouts would be larger than a single three-team parlay.
How do You Win a Round Robin Bet? To win a wager like this, you must pick at least two correct outcomes from your overall selections. These selections can contain single moneyline outcomes, or a team parlay. In fact, at your favorite online sportsbook, you can choose and combine all manner of different wager types.
A round-robin of six teams must be spread out over two days. Play four rounds the first day, and the fifth game as the first round on the second day. Because no team has a bye during the round-robin, no team has an unfair advantage for the games that follow the round-robin.
|Picks in Round Robin||Number of Ways (Events in each Parlay)||Total Number of Parlays in Round Robin|
|5 Team Parlay||22 to 1||$2,300|
|6 Team Parlay||45 to 1||$4,600|
|7 Team Parlay||90 to 1||$9,100|
|8 Team Parlay||180 to 1||$18,100|
A round robin styled tournament is where teams play one another an equal number of times, accumulating points as they win (or none if they lose). In a round robin tournament, the team with the best record is the winner.
A round robin creates smaller parlay combinations and thus better odds of winning compared to a traditional four team parlay where each individual bet has to win. Round robin bets keep the entertainment value alive if one of your parlay teams loses.
A round robin is a series of concurrent parlays on the same ticket. Instead of creating a five-team parlay where one loss would cause the ticket to lose, betting a round robin would break those five teams into smaller parlays.
Do you get anything for 1 winner on a round robin?
The difference with this type of bet is that returned stakes are then effectively re-wagered on the other selection. So if you win on one selection, you get double the stake on the other selection, and therefore double profit if that also wins.
You still break even with a round robin bet, even if one leg fails. Of course, if two teams do not cover, you will lose every parlay in your round robin bet.
In a three-team round-robin, where A defeats B, B defeats C, and C defeats A, all three competitors will have a record of one win and one loss, and a tiebreaker will need to be used to separate the teams.
To determine the number of games for a single round robin tournament, as seen above, use the following formula, N x (N-1)/2. With a tournament of 6 teams, the calculation would be: 6 x (6-1)/2 = 6 x 5/2 = 30/2 = 15 games.
6 Team Double Elimination Bracket Game one is between Team 1 and Team 2. Game two is between Team 3 and Team 4. Team 5 will play the winner from game one in game three. Team 6 will play the winner from game two in game four.
Every team in a group plays every other team in its group once. Round robin bets do the same thing with parlays. By playing the round-robin, you now have every combination of two-leg parlays from those four bets. If you play the regular four-leg parlay, all four bets have to win, or you get nothing.
The number of ways of choosing 2 teams from 6 teams is 6-choose-2 which is 15. Thus you need 15 games if each team is to play each other team.

Why are parlays so hard to win?
Because parlays provide the house with a massive edge. To understand just how great the house edge is with parlays, we must first define the term "hold." The hold is the percentage of money the bookmaker holds onto after all bets have been settled and paid out. Think of it as a win percentage for the books.

A round robin (RR) bet allows you to combine multiple parlays into one bet. The more selections you make, the more parlay combinations you will have in your RR. Once you make your selections, an RR will create parlays of all possible combinations between them.
When you place a round robin, you're placing individual bets on every possible parlay combination within the selected wagers. You don't have to win all the parlays to win the round robin. To place a round robin, just add 3 or more selections to your betslip and go to the Round Robin tab.

A round-robin of eight teams takes seven rounds. If the first four rounds are the first day, and the last three on the second day, there is time for a finals pitting the top two teams, if everyone is up for it.

If there is a non-run in a robin bet, all bets stand in all the selections. All treble with a non-runner becomes doubles while doubles become singles.

The 'Round Robin' bet contains 3 selections which amounts to 10 individual bets within this bet type. These bets are as follows; 3 doubles, 1 treble and 3 single-stakes-about bets (which contain 2 bets within each), all of which amounts to 10 individual bets.
A round-robin tournament (or all-go-away-tournament) is a competition in which each contestant meets every other participant, usually in turn. A round-robin contrasts with an elimination tournament, in which participants/teams are eliminated after a certain number of losses.
The primary disadvantage to a round robin tournament is the time needed to complete it. For instance, a 30 team tournament divided to three 10-team-groups would take 3*9=27 rounds. Another con is that there is a high probability that many teams will end up in tied points after round robin.
