Football has 3 possible result outcomes: Home Win (1), Draw (X) and Away Win (2). Double chance means that you can bet on 1X, X2 or 12.

  • In the case of 1X, you win if home team wins or match ends up with a draw
  • In the case of X2, you win if away team wins or match ends up with a draw
  • In the case of 12, you win if there is no draw end to the match

Reasons to decide for double chance betting

The most significant reason for using Double Chance as a betting tool can be summarized in one sentence:  The statistical chance of winning with double chance betting is significantly higher. Necessary to add in one breath is that the odds are lower as well, but proportionally to the risk.
