What is a Double Result?
In sports betting, a double result bet is offered on the score of a game at both halftime and at the end of the game. This has become an increasingly popular betting option as opposed to simply betting on a team to win outright, which is a bet that can often have short odds. There’s a higher risk to a double result bet, as there are more potential outcomes, but that also means that the odds are much better.
Bettors can also bet on ties for half time results and if a game goes into overtime then whichever team wins will be your full time result.
Here’s an example of how double result odds might look for an NFL game.
