Our free picks and parlay for Thursday & Friday's Belarusian soccer games

We're now into the fifth week of the Belarusian Premier League and the league that doesn't stop, is showing no signs of slowing down. Here are the picks and predictions for Thursday and Friday's soccer games.

4-Leg Parlay: Turn $50 into $1091!


10:30 EST - Energetik-BGU Minsk v Gorodeya - Under 2.5 Goals @ -154

- In a combined 8 games that the teams have played only one has achieved 3 goals or more and that was Energetik's season opener against BATE. The under is a safe bet here.

12:30 EST - Dinamo Minsk v Neman Grodno - Away Team to Score (No) @ +110

- Neman Grodno are very tough to beat, with a 1-1-2 record this season. Dinamo Minsk have lost 3 of their 4 games. Either way this is tough to call. We're backing against Neman Grodno scoring here, they've not netted in either road league game so far, and have failed to score in 7 of their last 9 road games dating back to last season.


10:30 EST - Belshina Bobruisk v FC Smolevichi-STI  - Tie @ +200

- The two worst teams in the Premier League clash and with neither team displaying a great ability to score this year, we are looking at a draw here, at the very generous price of +200.

12:30 EST - Shakhter Soligorsk v Slutsk - Shakhter Soligorsk/**Shakhter Soligorsk (Haltime/Fulltime) @ +110**

- Shakhter are two points clear of Slutsk in the table but that doesn't tell the full picture of this upcoming game. Shakhter are unbeaten in 28 of their last 30 Premier League home games and are very tough to be on home soil. They've also kept a clean sheet in their last 3 games. They also have a great record against Slutsk, winning 5 of the last 6, and winning the previous 3 at halftime and fulltime. We're backing that trend to continue on Friday.

So, what is a parlay?

A parlay is a single bet that relies on winning two or more wagers and is used to generate larger potential payouts for bettors. Parlays allow you to combine moneyline bets, prop bets, spread bets and pretty much anything else you can think of from different games in order to substantially increase your odds and give you a high-risk, high-reward chance at winning big.

How many selections need to win in order for me to win my parlay bet?

In short, all of them, but there are a few exceptions. A parlay bet is counted as a winner if none of the wagers lose, so there are circumstances like game cancelations/postponements and pushes that can result in an adjustment of odds instead of a loss. For instance, if you have a five-team parlay and three of the bets cover but two of them push, your parlay bet won’t be counted as a loss, your odds will just readjust to reflect a three-team parlay between your three winning bets. However, the second one of your teams don’t cover, the entire bet is counted as a loser.

How do I place a parlay bet?

Parlays are a popular wager type among bettors, and most sportsbooks have recognized this and made it easy for users to create their own.

As you navigate through a sportsbook and add different wagers to your betslip, you’ll usually be given two different options for how you can bet. The first is to bet all your different selections as independent straight bets.

However, sportsbooks also give you the option to parlay all four of those bets together, taking your potential profit and increasing it based on the amount of wagers in the parlay and their individual odds. If you took those same four wagers and combined them into a four-leg, $40 parlay, you’d increase your potential profit to $342.78.

Obviously, your odds of winning a bet decrease substantially when you make a win dependent on hitting all your wagers, but parlay bet payouts can often be substantial enough to entice bettors to take the risk.

Why should I use Oddschecker for my parlay bet?

Simply put, parlays are like every other type of bet in that your potential profit is completely dependent on your odds. At Oddschecker, we do the hard work for you, compiling odds from every major sports book and letting you know which gives you the best chance at striking it rich. Betting on anything, especially parlays, without checking where you can get the best odds is leaving free money on the table. Our odds grids make it easy for you to find which site is giving you the best value before you place a bet.
