Double Chance

A double chance bet is almost like an insurance policy. Where a WDW bet only allows you to cover one of the three possible outcomes (home win, draw, away win), a double chance bet lets you cover two of those outcomes.

This gives your betting strategy more flexibility and can help save your accumulator if a heavy favourite concedes a last minute equaliser or goes down to 10 men and has to hang on for a draw.

This flexibility means lower returns on a single bet though, which is why double chance bets are a great bet to build your football accumulator. At KickOff we make it quick and simple to do exactly that.

MKS Pogon v Legia Gdansk – Home/Draw

MKS Pogon are unbeaten at home this season, and in fact have won 6 of their 7 Ekstraklasa matches at Stadion Miejski im. Floriana Krygiera this season. Visitors Legia Gdansk are also going well this season, and sit just a place and a point below their hosts after 15 matches. However, Gdansk have not beaten any of the top 14 away from home this season, in 5 attempts – having drawn 4 and lost 1 of those matches. 

What is a double chance bet?

As the name suggests, a double chance bet gives you two chances to win compared to a normal win draw win bet. With a double chance bet you can cover two of the three outcomes of a match (home win, draw, away win)

What does 1x mean in double chance betting?

Because double chance betting involves betting on two different outcomes, sometimes writing the bet out can become quite long. For this reason, you’ll often see double chance bets written as 1x, x2 or 12. 1x is equivalent to home win or draw, 1 standing for the home team and x for draw.

What does 12 mean in double chance betting?

12 means home or away win, 1 again standing for home win and 2 for away win.

What about x2?

x2 means draw or away win.

When should you place a double chance bet?

Double chance bets are useful in several different scenarios.

Using a double chance bet as insurance for the favourite

One way you can use double chance bets is to protect yourself against a team you think will win having an off day, going down to 10 men or missing a lot of chances.

If the favourite was playing at home then in this case you would place a 1x bet, because you think it’s still unlikely they’ll lose, but the away team may be able to scrape a draw if something goes wrong. This can be particularly useful when looking to build a football betting accumulator as all it takes is one slip up for the whole bet to lose.

Backing the underdog

backing the underdog can be a great way to use a double chance bet, especially as a single. Basically, let’s say you think a team that is favourite to win has odds that are too short, and you think there’s a fair chance they won’t win the match. You could simply back the draw (probably the most likely secondary outcome) but you’d feel pretty annoyed if the underdog actually went on to win. A double chance bet allows you to cover all possibilities except the favourite winning.

Betting on matches involving teams that rarely lose, win or draw

Some teams, especially those with strong defences, rarely lose but might not always have the firepower to get the win. In this case backing them to win or draw would be a good use of a double chance bet.

Other teams might play a very open style which could result in a win or a loss but rarely in a draw. For example, Leeds United have drawn just 3 PL games so far this season.

Finally, a struggling team might draw quite a lot of games but rarely win – this could be especially true if their defence is strong but they don’t create many chances. You might want to back their opponent to win but have the draw as an insurance.

Make better double chance bets with the Pro Menu

Our pro menu, available to KickOff Pro members for just £5 per month, allows you to easily find teams with long unbeaten streaks or long winless streaks that are perfect for making double chance bets. Because they’re all in one place, this also makes it really easy to build them into football accumulator bets.
