What is a Double Bet?

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 is doing a double worth it? Yes, as long as you can identify odds that are more likely to come home than the bookie thinks they are. We have our own system for doing this, and the results are listed in the recommendations below for Double bets. I suggest you add a few of them into the calculator and have a play to get a feel for how things work.

Pure value is the way to bring in the big bucks

Ok, it's Double recommendations time. Firstly, remember that all our bet recommendations are derived from the current value of a bet, as determined by our custom formula. This means that the price we find will sometimes have changed once you get to the bookies. You must be quick, but also capable of thinking on your feet if the prices change.

The picks below get updated every 30 mins (every 1 minute for our members). OK, so, what do we think right this moment, as of Thu 27th Jul 9:35AM?

OK our top recommendation is Halinka and Viewpoint in the 14:00 and 14:15 at Chepstow and Wolverhampton respectively with 10Bet. You need to place the bet at odds of around 2.88 and 2.75 for each one to preserve the value. Click here to see what that looks like in the calculator.
