The odds you see offered in the Sportsbook might be slightly different depending on whether you are making a Single or Multiple bet. You can toggle between Single and Multiple odds in the navigation bar, or from the Bet Slip:
What is a Single bet?
A Single (also known as a straight bet) is the most common way to place a bet. It involves placing a bet on a single event. The result of the bet and any potential win or loss is determined solely by the outcome of that single event.
Below is an example of a single bet.
If you were to place a €100 Single on Tottenham Hotspur to beat Manchester City at odds of 10.680 and Tottenham win the match, the bet will win and return €1,068 (€968 in profit). If Tottenham were to draw or lose the match then the bet would lose and return €0.
What is a Multiple bet?
A Multiple is a bet type that combines more than one single bet. It can take various forms.
The most well-known type of Multiple (also known as a parlay) is a double, treble, or accumulator. A bet with two selections (or “folds”) is referred to as a double, three as a treble, and anything above is an accumulator (fourfold accumulator, fivefold accumulator, and so on).
The result of this type of Multiple and any potential win or loss is dependent on the results of all of the single bets within it. A double, treble, or accumulator bet will have proportionately higher returns compared to a single as the odds in the bet multiply by each other. However, in order for the bet to win, all of the selections within it need to win.
Below is an example of a three-way Multiple bet (known as a treble).
If you were to place a €100 treble on Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and Shalke 04 to win, and all three selections win, the bet will win and return €19,326.50 (€19,226.50 profit). This is because:
100 (Stake) x 2.080 x 10.680 x 8.700 = 19,326.50
There are also other types of multiple bets that cover multiple outcomes but they allow for only some of the selections to win.
- Trixie – Four bets across three selections that cover some of the permutations (one treble and three doubles).
- Patent – Seven bets across three selections that cover all permutations (one treble, three doubles, and three singles).
- Yankie – 11 bets across four selections that cover some of the permutations (one fourfold, four trebles, and six doubles).
- Lucky 15 – 15 bets across four selections that cover some of the permutations (one fourfold, four trebles, six doubles, and four singles).
- Lucky 31 – 31 bets across five selections that cover some of the permutations (one fivefold, four fourfolds, ten trebles, ten doubles, and five singles).
Bets covering permutations of higher numbers of selections also exist. These include; Canadian (five), Heinz (six), Super Heinz (seven) and Goliath (eight).
