A Treble Bet – What is it?

A treble is a particular kind of accumulator bet. An accumulator bet is one made up of several individual bets joined together, in which all selections have to be successful to produce a return. The winnings from each bet are rolled forward to the next, which means that a treble can generate bigger returns than would be the case with separate individual bets.

A treble is, strictly speaking, a kind of accIf you feel that Bournemouth, Manchester United and Chelsea are all going to win, rather than backing them in separate singles, you can choose to combine them in a treble. If you were to place £10 on this treble and all three won, your profit would be a healthy £41.45, although if any of the three didn’t win, your return would be zero.
Many bettors choose to reduce the risk involved in treble betting by employing an Each Way treble, a bet that is used a lot in horse-racing betting.umulator, but that term is normally applied to bets that involve four or more legs, and as the treble is an extremely popular bet, it is generally known by this term, rather than as an accumulator.

The treble is an easy bet to use. It is simply a single bet involving three separate selections. If all three bets are successful, then the treble is a winning bet, but as is the case with all accumulators, the bet fails if one selection doesn’t win.

As an example of how a treble works, consider the following three football matches and their associated odds:
Bournemouth versus Middlesbrough:
Bournemouth win: 11/10
The draw: 23/10
Middlesbrough win: 5/2
Manchester United versus Sunderland
Manchester United win: 1/6
The draw: 11/2
Sunderland win: 18/1
Chelsea versus Everton
Chelsea win: 11/10
The draw: 23/10
Everton win: 9/4

If you feel that Bournemouth, Manchester United and Chelsea are all going to win, rather than backing them in separate singles, you can choose to combine them in a treble. If you were to place £10 on this treble and all three won, your profit would be a healthy £41.45, although if any of the three didn’t win, your return would be zero.
Many bettors choose to reduce the risk involved in treble betting by employing an Each Way treble, a bet that is used a lot in horse-racing betting.

When you back Each Way, you are effectively making two bets on the same selection: a win bet and a place bet. Exactly what constitutes a place can depend on the rules used in a particular market. In horse-racing, a selection that finishes in the top three is placed, and the odds for a placed horse will be either a quarter or a fifth of the win odds.

With an Each Way bet, if your selection is successful, it will generate a return for both the win and the place part of your bet. If your selection doesn’t win but does finish in the top three, you will win the place part of your bet. Accordingly, an Each Way treble will generate a return if all three selections are placed, even if not all of them win.

It is fairly easy to work out the potential winnings for a treble, but if you’re not sure of the maths involved, you can opt to use a free online bet calculator. Trebles are available on most sports and are an excellent way to significantly increase your winnings.
