How does Double Chance betting work?

Double Chance Betting

Double Chance betting is essentially used for giving you a bigger chance of winning from a single event. In football, it can be used to cover two of the possible three outcomes in just one bet. It combines the win/draw for both sides or gets rid of the option for the draw altogether.

When placing a double chance bet, you will notice the odds will be shorter than normal, which is due to the higher chance of your selection coming in, hence the name ‘double chance’. When looking to place a double chance bet it will be displayed like this:

In order to win a double chance bet you must cover one of these selections.

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.

Double Chance betting can be a great way of winning when looking at games between two open teams. For example, you could be betting on a game with two sides who score and concede plenty of goals but draw few – so a double chance bet on the home and away team would suit this. It can also be a good way of betting when backing a team who is expected to win, as just incase they slip up or struggle to score, the draw option is still covered and you’ll win on that specific selection.

Example: Arsenal v Tottenham Hotspur. If you back Arsenal/Draw double chance then any Arsenal victory OR draw means you will win that bet. However, if Tottenham Hotspur win then you would lose. Overall double chance betting is essentially a way of covering yourself and allowing yourself a little bit of leeway. If you are unsure on a certain team, then why not go for double chance.
