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

So, what are my tips for the Double? Firstly, remember that all my bet suggestions are derived from the current value of a pick, as determined by our unique formula. This means that the price we find will sometimes have been updated once you get to the bookies. You will need to be quick, and also able to think on your feet if the prices change.

The recommendations below are updated every 30 minutes (every 1 minute for our members). So, what do I think right this moment, as of Tue 21st Aug 1:08AM?

Well my top recommendation would be Fox Power and Make A Wish in the 13:20 and 13:30 at Newbury and Nottingham respectively with Boylesports. You need to place the bet at odds of around 1.67 and 7.50 for each one to maintain the value. Click here put the bet into the calculator and check it out.
