With the world of football betting really becoming a phenomenon, new and exciting markets have emerged to make the punters’ experience more enjoyable. For those of you looking to stick on an accumulator in particular, the Double Chance market is one that can offer plenty of protection for your flutter.


What Is a Double Chance Bet?

Unlike the traditional 1×2 market, the Double Chance Bet will be cashed as a winner even if your selected team only manages to collect a single point from their fixture.

While the 1×2 section simply allows punters the option of betting on a Home win, Draw, or an Away win, the Double Chance market can certainly offer your bet some crucial protection. Although the odds in the Double Chance market will be noticeably shorter than the 1×2 market, it can really save you some late heartbreak.

So, say your selected team conceded a last-gasp equalizer and eventually played out a 1-1 draw, your bet WOULD be classed as a winner in the ‘DC’ section.


A Perfect Double Chance Example

For those of you out there who are keen on sticking on a Double Chance flutter, we have found a perfect example of where the ‘DC’ market could be a smart move. Ahead of Liverpool’s Premier League meeting, Wolves open the contest priced at 15/4 with the 1×2 market to clinch an outright win.

With Liverpool on a run of form that has seen them lose six of their last seven Premier League matchups, Wolves would seem like an appealing option for an upset.

So, instead of backing Wolves to collect an outright win using the 1×2 market, the Double Chance category would mean you are cashed as a winner even if they only collect a point from that fixture.

While the odds might fall to a still appealing 1/1, you offer yourself plenty of protection and aren’t reliant on an outright Wolves win.


Where to Get Some Help?

In an era that is focused on the world of data and stats, plenty of helpful information is available at the tip of a fingertip. Whether you’re backing the Double Chance market or any other category, there is no doubt that doing your research gives you the best possible chance of backing a winner.
