Treble Bet Explained – The Ultimate Guide (2018 Update)
In this article we explain all you need to know about a Treble bet. This includes what it is and what it consists of, how to manually calculate this bet type and more.
Treble Bet Explained – What Is A Treble Bet?
A Treble bet is a wager on 3 selections taking part in different events. The returns from the first selection are rolled on to the second and the returns from the second selection are rolled over to the third. All 3 selections must win for a Treble to generate a return.
How To Calculate The Returns Of A Treble Bet
To manually calculate the potential returns from a Treble bet, simply multiply together the decimal odds of each selection and then multiply this number by your stake (see example below).
Treble Bet Calculator
You can use tools such as BetVictor’s Bet Calculator that has a built in Treble bet calculator that will automatically do the math for you.
Just enter the prices of your 3 selections. Then enter your stake and it will show you what you stand to win. You’ll also be able to experiment with different outcomes to see how they affect the potential returns.
Treble Bet Example
Assuming we stake £10 on Team A to win at 2.0, Team B to win at 3.0 and Team C to win at odds of 5.0.
If all three teams successfully win, then our returns would be as follows:
- Returns = £10 x (2 x 3 x 5) = £10 x 30 = £300.
- Profit = Returns – Stake = £300 – £10 = £290.
If one or more teams failed to win, then our returns would be £0.
How To Place A Treble Bet
We’ll be using bet365 in our example although the process should be the same regardless of what bookmaker you use.
Step 1) Add your 3 selections to your bet slip.
Step 2) Enter your stake into the ‘Treble’ Box.
Step 3) Confirm your bet.
A Treble bet consists of 3 selections whereby the returns from the first selection are rolled onto the second and then the returns from the second selection are rolled onto the third.
They are good for both those who want to place a large stake on three short-priced ‘favourites’ as well as those who want to go for something more ambitious and bigger returns.
The disadvantage is that all selections must win in order for you to see a return.
