Double the pleasure and double the fun? With double result betting on the NBA, that is indeed a possible outcome.
A double result wager is a bet that combines two outcomes on the same NBA game into one wager. Here’s how to play a double result bet. Suppose the Minnesota Timberwolves are playing host to the Memphis Grizzlies. Minnesota is a 4.5-point betting favorite in the spread to win the game. The T-Wolves are also the 2.5-point chalk to be leading the game at halftime.
To place a double result bet, you are going to take both of these outcomes and package them into a single wagering play.
Straight Bets vs Double Result Bets
With straight betting, there are three possible outcomes from the wager – win, lose, or draw. A double result best triples the possible outcomes. There is win-win, win-loss, win-draw, draw-win, draw-draw, draw-loss, loss-win, loss-draw and loss-loss.
The beauty of the double result bet is that these added outcomes increase the odds and thus increase the potential payout. Meanwhile, the reality a bettor must accept when playing a double result wager is that with the potential for greater reward comes greater risk. More outcomes equals more chances to lose. You’re trading the opportunity to cash a bigger ticket for the fact that it’s more likely that you’ll lose.
NBA Double Result Betting Strategy
Knowledge is always king when it comes to betting on the NBA at NY sportsbooks and that’s certainly the case with a double result bet. There are going to be NBA teams that are slow starters and strong finishers. Those clubs would lean toward a loss-win play on a double result bet.
Some teams will be strong at home and weak on the road. They might be a solid win-win option on their home court and just as strong of a loss-loss play in another team’s arena. Read more about NBA betting model and strategies with ROI.
