    i put a 7 team parlay in earlier at the borgata
    the odds were

    -115
    -110
    -120
    +115
    +170
    -110
    +230
    $100 pays out $19,657 on my ticket

    When i punch it into a parlay calculator
    $100 pays out $23,830

    how can one be worth 4 grand more than the other ? It's the exact same odd's, Im confused

    Probably just means NJ is taking out a bigger percentage on parlays.

    The bigger question is why would you do a $100 parlay. Do you hate money?

    This. Tax rates vary state to state and country to country. This is 2018 but you get the idea.

    That is fucked up. I calculate it at about $23,900. You need to find out how they are figuring the payout.
