Sports Betting 101 - Reverse Bets


A reverse bet is two or more "If bets" where your action is covered both ways. It's similar to boxing an exacta or lottery numbers.

If you bet a 2 team reverse, you are betting two separate "If bets" as follows:

Bet A - IF - Bet B
and
Bet A - IF - Bet B

Let's say both bets (A and B) are risking $110 to win $100.

If both bets A and B win, the player will win $400 and get back $620 ($400 plus the $220 risked).

If just one bet wins (A or B), the bettor will lose $120 ($110 on the first and $10 on the second) and get back $100.

If both bets lose, the bettor will lose $220.
