What Is a ‘Double Chance’ Bet?


Double Chance betting is a type of sports betting which allows you to cover two of the three possible outcomes in a soccer match with one bet. If you bet on a double chance, you will win if either of your two picks is the correct outcome. The two outcomes are usually a win for the home team, a win for the away team, or a draw.

How Does a Double Chance Bet Work?

Soccer tends to be the most popular market when it comes to double chance betting, and the bet will usually appear in one of three ways (Let’s use Chelsea vs Arsenal as an example)

  1. Chelsea to win or tie (Bet loses if Arsenal win)
  2. Arsenal to win or tie (Bet loses if Chelsea win)
  3. Either Arsenal or Chelsea to win (Bet loses if the match ends in a tie)

Bear in mind that picking a double-chance market means the odds will be lower than selecting a single outcome, but you will have a higher chance of winning.
