Bookmakers accommodate every type of bettor by offering various markets and different odd types. One very popular odd type for football betting is called double chance. A double chance bet enables to the bettor to bet on two of the three possible outcomes in a football match all defined by one single bet. The following options are available when placing a double chance bet.
Home team and draw – Your bet is a winner if the home team wins or draws the match.
Away team and draw – Your bet is a winner if the away team wins or draws the match.
Home team and away team – Your bet is a winner if the home team or the away team wins the match.
We will give you an example of double chance odds using a Manchester City vs Manchester United match.
|Man City & Draw 1.5||Manchester Utd & Draw 1.4||Manchester Utd & Man City 1.25|
The downside to double chance betting is the odds are typically far lower than if you were to bet on just one result at a time. This being said the payouts may be lower than that of other betting markets, but if you are looking for long term profits than double chance odds may provide you with consistent winning bets, and allow you to take some risk in other markets when desired.
