Frequently Asked Questions About Doubles

Here are the most popular questions we get asked about doubles bets:

What is a Double Bet?

A double bet is exactly what the name suggests. It is a bet of two-part, so you make two selections. You essentially place your stake on the first part of the bet and the winnings from this are then passed onto the second part of the bet. If one of the selections loses, the bet is over.

How Does it a Double Work?

The double bet is a type of multiple bet that adds two single bets together. You will be able to accumulate the odds of both but if one loses, you will not receive the reward.

In summary:

  •     Double bets help accumulate bigger winnings
  •     There’s more risk than a single
  •     It is the most simple form of a multiple bet
  •     It has less risk and reward than trebles and accumulators
  •     It is simple to place

Double Bets Explained in More Detail

They’re easy to place and also simple to understand. You will be able to enjoy a larger return but obviously, the risk is greater too. This type of bet works similar to a treble, four-fold or accumulator. The difference being fewer selections, ultimately meaning more chance of winning.  All of the aforementioned is reflected in the return.

Example of A Double Bet

See our example below:

It’s that straightforward. If one of those results lose, then you will not win a penny. If both results come in, then you win! And the profit will be more than putting them on as singles. You will enjoy better odds as the money will be accumulated.

  • Returns = £5 double on (3/1 + 1) x (6/1 + 1) = £140
  • The profit would be £135 but you’d also get your £5 stake back.

Are Double Bets Worth It?

Double bets are definitely worth it because you multiply the odds and if both wins can see a good return and huge payment.

You can also place an each-way double where both selections can place and you still yield a winning return.

Each-way doubles are a worthy bet because you hedge your bets and still win if the horse finishes 2nd, 3rd or even 4th depending on the number of runners in a race.
