Do you bet in multiples?
Doubles, trebles or acca's (accumulators)?
I have always been of the opinion that these types of bets are just for the bookies benefit and have always avoided them, even though there is a promise of huge profits if they come off.
I do remember a few years back reading an article about how if you are making value bets, if you combine them into doubles or trebles that you magnify the advantage that you have because the value multiplies. But that didnt change my methods.
The results from yesterday's Racing Consultants tips have caused me to think again.
Yesterday they gave three selections to be combined into a half point each way Trixie.
A Trixie is 3 doubles (eachway doubles in this case) and a treble, so four bets.
The guys managed to land 2 of the bets, the advised prices were 6/1 and 9/1 (there was a 10p rule 4 on the 6/1)
A £5 eachway Trixie where only two of the horses won paid £376, which is a £336 profit!
That's a big return from getting just two bets home.
But the thing that really surprised me is that if they had got all three home the return would have been £5,620 for a £40 outlay.
(The non runner was 11/1)
I need to re-think my betting and staking strategy.
Do you bet in multiples? Tell me in the comments, if you've had any big wins tell me that also.
