Doubles, Trebles & Accumulators

Doubles

A double bet is the simplest form of a multiple bet. It consists of two selections in different events, and can be either a win double or each-way double.

Win Double

A win double is two selections to win outright, for example, Churchill to win the 2000 Guineas & Rhododendron to win the 1000 Guineas. The single odds of each horse are combined to give one price. Both selections must win for the bet to gain a return.

Each-way Double

An each-way double is two separate bets placed at the same time, therefore double the stake. One bet is the same as the win double and the other is a place double. For the place double to gain a return both horses must place. The place terms are below:

SkyBet are the best site for increasing the place odds on races or giving an extra place on the big races races.

If both horses fit the place criteria on a selected race, then it will be a winner, and if both horses win their relevant races then both bets will gain a return. If only one wins but the other places, then you will only be paid out on the place double and the win double is a loser.

If an each-way double is your preferred bet, you are best picking odds above 4/1 so that you can assure a profit if they both place, otherwise you could make a loss.

Treble 

A treble bet consists of three selections in different events, and can be either a win treble or each-way treble.

Win Treble

A win treble is three selections to win outright. For example, Douvan to win the Champion Chase, Thistlecrack to win the Gold Cup and Unowhatimeanharry to win the Stayers Hurdle. The single odds of each horse are combined to give one price. All selections must win for the bet to gain a return.

Each-way Treble

An each-way treble is two separate bets placed at the same time, therefore double the stake. One bet is the same as the win treble and the other is a place treble. For the place treble to gain a return all horses must place. The place terms are the same as the double place terms.

Example

Win Treble – if you placed a £5 win treble on the horses tramadol specified above then the pay out would be £5 @ 72/1 = £365. However, if one only places you receive nothing.

Each-way treble – if you placed an £2.50 each-way treble then pay out for the win would be £2.50 @ 72/1 = £182.50 plus the each-way of £11 for total of £193. However, if one places you still get the each-way part of £11 instead of nothing.

Accumulators

An accumulator bet consists of multiple selections in different events, and can be either a win accumulator or each-way accumulator.

Win Accumulator

A win accumulator is 4 or more selections to win outright. The more selections the bigger the pay out but the harder it is to get correct. Accumulators can be catergorised in the following way:

As you can see, the pay out is great for a relatively small stake, but it increases the chance of it losing the more selections that are added.

Each-way Accumulator

An each-way accumulator is two separate bets placed at the same time, therefore double the stake. One bet is the same as the win accumulator and the other is a place accumulator. For the place accumulator to gain a return all horses must place. The place terms are the same as before.

If all horses fit the place criteria on a selected race, then it will be a winner, and if all horses win their relevant races then both bets will gain a return. If only two or more win but the other horse places, then you will only be paid out on the place accumulator and the win accumulator is a loser. The same applies if only one wins but the others place. These bets are harder to win than doubles or trebles but the pay out can be a lot bigger.
