Double Chance Betting Explained

So, what is the Double Chance betting market? Well, to put it simply, betting on any team with a double chance bet means you are backing two of the three possible results from that game, a home win or draw, a home win or an away win and an away win or draw. Below we have provided the possible double chance bets for Arsenal vs Southampton and how each would win and lose.

Bet 1: Arsenal Double Chance

Result 1: Arsenal win or draw = Win

Result 2: Southampton win = Lose

Bet 2: Arsenal or Southampton Double Chance

Result 1: Arsenal or Southampton win = Win

Result 2: Draw = Lose

Bet 3: Southampton Double Chance

Result 1: Southampton win or draw = Win

Result 2: Arsenal win = Lose

Our double chance predictions are always given a lot of thought via studying both teams, checking their form and which players might miss the game, and you should always do the same before placing any bets.

The Pros and Cons of the Double Chance Betting Market

The main advantage to a double chance bet is that you are selecting two out of a possible three results, win, lose, and draw. There are three possible bets in the double chance market, home win or draw, home win or away win and away win or draw, so whichever you are betting on your will always have two of the possible three match-day results covered, and that gives you a 2/3 chance of success.

The main disadvantage when betting in the double chance market tends to be the odds. You might get fantastic double chance odds on Southampton away at Arsenal, but that is because it's unlikely that Southampton would win or draw that game. However, if you were to back Arsenal with a double chance bet or an Arsenal or Southampton victory in that same game the odds would be much lower, to the point that it isn't really worth betting on as your returns would be small as you can see in the image below

Q&A – Double Chance Betting

  • When are the Double Chance markets released? The double chance market is one of the first released by bookmakers and should be available as soon as the fixtures are available to bet on.
  • Which matches are best to use the double chance bet on? That really depends on the odds. If you have a game that could go either way this might have decent double chance odds. When you get big teams against little teams the double chance odds will always be much higher for the team that is expected to lose the game.
  • Why are the odds for ‘Team A or Team B to win' always the worst for this type of bet? That is because betting on a draw almost always has good odds and that makes betting on either team to win less profitable as those results are more expected than a draw.
  • How sure are your double chance predictions? As with any bet, nothing is guaranteed. Our tipsters do plenty of research before making any predictions and never just pick a tip that has the best odds.
