The Double Bet is the most basic type of accumulator. It's a good place for beginners to start as they get a feel for accumulator betting. With a double you make 2 selections. If they both win you're in the money but if either loses, you win nothing. So why not just place two singles? Well, with an accumulator your odds are lengthened and your potential payout increases. Two winning Singles at 2 / 1 with a stake of £1 each would win you £4 profit overall. A successful double with a stake of £2 at the same odds would win you £16 overall. Quite a difference.
So, what are my tips for the Double? Before I get going, remember that all my bet recommendations are based on the current value of a pick, dependant on our custom algorithm. This means that the price we find will sometimes have changed by the time you get to the bookie. You'll have to be quick, but also capable of thinking on your feet if the prices change.
