Why make a Treble Bet?

This is a very popular bet type, especially when it comes to football and horse racing. However, this does not mean that you can’t place it on other sports, too. You need to place all your bets in a treble on different sporting events. You can find more useful info on this bet below.

Treble Bet explained

A Treble Bet consists of three selections that form one bet. All three of these selections need to be winners if you want your treble to be successful. If the first one wins, the returns become the stake in the second. If the second selection wins, the returns become the stake in the third. This means that as these selections win, your returns multiply.

However, there is a downside to the treble. If only one of your selection loses, the whole bet fails.

How to place a Treble Bet: A step-by-step guide

Placing a treble is very easy. It’s similar to placing any other bet on sports events. Here’s how you can do it.

  1. Choose your three selections.
  2. Add them to your bet slip.
  3. Enter the amount you wish to stake.
  4. Confirm your bet.

Placing a Treble Bet

An example

Now, let’s see an example of a treble accumulator. We have three football teams that we wish to bet on in their respective upcoming matches. Liverpool is given the odds to win of 2/1, Leicester City 3/1, and Manchester City 4/1. If you stake £10 on this bet, your total return would amount to £600, with your profit being solid £590.

Treble Bet Types

A Treble Bet can feature more than three selections, namely four or five. Read more about these treble accumulators below.

Treble with four selections

A Treble Bet that has four different selections is, in fact, a fourfold accumulator.

Treble with five selections

Naturally, a treble that has five selections is a five-fold accumulator.

Calculating the win for Treble Bets

Calculating your win for a Treble Bet can be complicated if math is not one of your strong suits. Here’s how we would do the calculation for our example involving Liverpool, Leicester City, and Manchester City and their given odds.

Total return = £10 * (2/1 +1) * (3/1 + 1) * (4/1 + 1) = £600
Total profit = £590
