What is a Treble Bet?
A treble bet is another name for an accumulator bet that only has 3 selections. All 3 selections must win for the bet to win.
Larger returns can be had from placing treble bets like any accumulator bet at the exchange of a higher risk of the bet losing. All bets in a treble must be placed on different events. The odds of the individual selections are multiplied together to give us a total odds for the treble.
You can use the simple treble calculator below to calculate your return on a treble bet.
Here is an example using football games.
|Home Team||Score||Away Team||Odds (decimal in brackets)|
|Manchester Utd||2 – 0||Manchester City||2/1 (3.0)|
|Arsenal||4 – 1||Chelsea||5/2 (3.5)|
|Sunderland||1 – 0||Newcastle||4/1 (5.0)|
If we had selected all the home teams to win then our treble would have been a winner.
If we had placed a £10 bet on this we would calculate our return in the following way. Using the decimal odds:
- £10 x (3.0 x 3.5 x 5.0) = £525
So that would be £515 profit on a £10 bet for choosing 3 correct results!
Obviously if any one of the our selections had lost then the treble bet would lose and we would lose our £10 stake.
