What is a treble bet?
A treble bet is a bet consisting of 3 selections. All three selections must win for the bet to be successful. Treble bets are popular because they offer much larger returns, however the risk is increased because all 3 selections must win.
An example of a treble bet is as follows:
|Market||Selection||Odds Fractional||Odds Decimal|
|Arsenal vs Norwich||Arsenal to win||2/1||3.0|
|Manchester City vs Stoke||Manchester City to win||2/1||3.0|
|Liverpool vs Tottenham||Liverpool to win||3/1||4.0|
We can work out the odds by multiplying the decimal odds together. 3 x 3 x 4 = 36
So this bet would give odds of 35/1 meaning a £1 bet would return £35 profit. If we had placed each of these bets as singles our total profit would only have been £7. This is why treble bets are so popular, we can take 3 relatively low odds bets and make them into a much larger odds bet. Of course all our selections have to win and we will get nothing back unless they do so.
