Double Chance Betting Explained

Double chance betting is when bookmakers reduce the 3 possible outcomes for a match down to 2. In this case, the option of a draw is put in together with win or lose, giving only 2 outcomes. This gives two choices of win/draw or lose, or the reverse for betting on underdogs, with the two choices being win or draw/lose.

Odds will always be shorter on these types of bets due to the reduced options available, because the chances of either outcome are greater than for each one occurring separately.
