What is a double bet?
A double bet is the bet type that contains two single bets that are combined to create the same bet. The lowest risk of all multiple bet types available on Bet UK, to win a double bet, both bets need to win. In this format, players would simply need to combine each single bet to calculate their double bet odds. However, you can easily do this by inputting your two-part bet into our calculator. This bet holds higher risk and higher reward than a single bet but it is still the simplest of bet types. This is a bet that is most popular in Football matches and Horse Racing where bets on one event can be combined.

How to use the BetUK Double betting calculator?
If you're looking to calculate your potential winnings for your double bet, you won't find an easier way to do so than BetUK's betting calculator. Although the double bet is one of the easiest to understand in the world of online betting, calculating two bets of reasonably high odds can still be difficult, so if you're looking to bet on doubles, check out the step-by-step guide to using our bet calculator below.
Step 1: As the double bet type is already inputted into your calculator, your first step will be to determine whether or not your bet is an "Each Way Bet". This will be shown on your betslip and has to be selected by the bettor. Same applies for 'Dead Heat' and 'Rule 4'. If you wish to learn more about these terms, check out our betting guides.
Step 2: Select the correct format for your odds, these will either be Decimal or Fractional, this is a step you must do before inputting any odds.
Step 3: Add your total stake into the calculator
Step 4: Input both odds from your bet slip into the calculator and view your potential winnings. Each odds section will have win, lost, void or placed, select the right outcome for each bet, the placed option will only appear if you have selected an each way bet. As this is just a double bet, there will be very few variables.
Double Bets Explained
Double bets are some of the easiest bets to follow in the world of online betting. Especially when compared to the likes of an accumulator bet and Canadian Bets, double bets have few selections, meaning a higher chance of victory; however, the odds of the bet will likely be significantly lower with a double bet.
Double Bet example:
Honeysuckle to win Champion Hurdle - 1/2
Minella Indo to win Cheltenham Gold Cup - 5/1
If one of those bets close, then your bet has lost. If both Minella Indo and Honeysuckle come first, you win! Riskier than two separate single bets but the odds are significantly higher! For example, if both won as single bets and you staked £5 on both, you'd have a return of £7.50 and £25, accumulating in total winnings of £32.50.
However, if you placed this as a double bet would provide a total of £90 from your £10 stake. Nearly treble the winnings but it does include significantly higher risk.
Is it worth doing double bets?
If you're looking at lower risk bets with decent payouts, then it is definitely worth checking out the double bet.
