What Are Double And Treble Bets?

A ‘double’ and a ‘treble’ bet are two examples of ‘accumulator’ bets which are extremely popular with punters.

An ‘accumulator’ is a single bet that links together two or more individual wagers and is dependent on all of those wagers winning together. The benefit of an ‘accumulator’ bet is that there are much higher payoffs than placing each individual bet separately because the likelihood of all the selections winning is much lower.

Two of the most popular accumulator bets are the ‘double’ and the ‘treble’.

Double – A double is a single bet placed on 2 different selections. Both selections must be correct for the bet to be successful.
Treble – A treble is a single bet placed on 3 different selections. All 3 selections must be correct for the bet to be successful.

With either a ‘double’ or a ‘treble’ bet, if one of your selections is not correct, your payout will be zero.

Example

Bolton v West Ham. Bolton 11/10, draw 23/10, West Ham 5/2
Manchester Utd v Wolves. Manchester Utd 1/6, draw 11/2, Wolves 18/1
Rapid Vienna v Celtic. Rapid Vienna 11/10, draw 23/10, Celtic 9/4

You place £10 on Bolton and Manchester United to win. This is a ‘double’. If both teams win, you receive a payout of £14.50 plus a return of your £10 stake. If one of these teams fails to win, your payout would be zero.

If you added Rapid Vienna to your selections you would have a ‘treble’. If all three teams win, you receive a payout of £41.45 plus a return of your £10 stake. If one of the three teams fails to win, your payout would be zero.

You can use online betting calculators at sites such as www.paddypower.com to work out what your potential winnings would be for any ‘double’ or ‘treble’ bet.

‘Double’ and ‘treble’ bets can be made in a variety of sports and events. They are most common in football and horse racing (picking the winners of two or three different races) although they can be used in rugby, tennis or even snooker.

It couldn’t be easier to place an accumulator bet. By going online and using an internet based bookmaker such as www.paddypower.com you can make your selections and then choose ‘double’ or ‘treble’ on your betslip, depending on whether you have made two or three selections.
