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? Before I get going, remember that all our bet suggestions are derived from the current value of a pick, dependant on our unique algorithm. Because of this the price we find will frequently have been updated once you get to the bookie. You will have to be quick, and also capable of thinking on your feet if the prices change.

Well my top recommendation is Poets Word and Strong Steps in the 16:20 and 16:35 at Ascot and Hamilton respectively with 10Bet. You should place the bet at odds of around 6.00 and 8.50 for each one to preserve the value. Click here to see what that looks like in the calculator.
