A double is one bet that is made up of two selections placed together, and you win a combination of the odds..... assuming both selections win. It is basically a two team accumulator, although it is never referred to in that way.

A selection of bookmakers who are strong on football betting and will accept Doubles, and who have a wide range of different football bets are as follows.............

What is a Double in Football Betting?

A Double Bet is a bet made up of a two selections, in which both of your selections have to win. In football betting a typical example of a Double Bet looks like this..........

Liverpool to beat Chelsea at odds of 2.00 (Even Money)
Manchester City to beat Manchester United at odds of 2.00 (Even Money)

In order for your double to win, both Liverpool and Manchester City have to win.

Two teams winning at Even money (as shown above) is the equivalent of a 3/1 winner. Meaning a £10.00 bet would make you £30.00 profit. Your Double Bet would break down like this......

  • £10.00 on Liverpool at odds of 2.00 (Even Money), pays £20.00 (£10.00 win + £10.00 returned stake).
  • That £20.00 then goes on to Manchester City at odds of 2.00 (Even Money). Man City win, so you get back £40.00 (£20.00 win + £20.00 returned stake).

This gives you a total return of £40.00 on your Double Bet (£30.00 winnings plus your £10.00 stake). You can check how much a double pays before placing a bet by using the football gambler Betting Calculator.

Restrictions On Double Bets

A double can't be two selections in the same event. So for example, you couldn't bet on Liverpool to beat Chelsea (90 mins betting), and Over 2.5 Goals in the Liverpool V Chelsea match. Bookmakers will often create special bets for these cross over bets, but you probably wouldn't be able to add these two selections to your betting slip and get it accepted.

You could though have a double on Liverpool to beat Chelsea, and for there to be Over 2.5 Goals in the Manchester City V Manchester United match, as this isn't two bets on the same event crossing over each other.

Basically, as long as the two selections don't cross the same event, a double should be accepted.
