Round Robin Bet

The ‘Round Robin’ bet has three selections, for a total of ten unique bets within this bet type. These bets are as follows: three doubles, one treble, and three single-stakes-about bets (each with two bets), for a total of ten individual bets. A Round-Robin bet combines several individual bets into one umbrella stake. It is a sophisticated type of bet that is not suitable for novices or those who are inexperienced with betting because it necessitates a thorough understanding of a number of different types of bet.


A Round-Robin bet has the bettor placing ten bets from three options. Three double bets, one triple bet, and three up-and-down single-stake pair bets are included. Because each one is really two bets in one, the up-and-down single-stake pair bets are what make the Round-Robin bet particularly difficult for newbies to understand. As a result, the round-robin involves ten distinct bets in all.

Keeping this in mind, it is critical that bettors considering a round robin bet understand exactly what the bet implies. They should also guarantee that they are aware about the field and sport on which they are betting. Those who are not may find themselves losing what might be a costly gamble.


Before delving into the specifics of a Round-Robin bet, it’s crucial to grasp its components: the double bet, the treble bet, and the up-and-down bet.

A double bet is a wager in which two choices are made in two different events. For example, at a horse racing meeting, Runner 1 may be chosen for Race 1 and Runner 2 may be chosen for Race 2. If both of these picks win, the wager is won and the bettor receives a refund. If one or both of the selections fail to win, the bet is lost and the bettor receives no payout.

A triple bet is a bet in which three picks from three different events are made. For example, during the same horse racing meeting, the picks could be Runner 1 in Race 1, Runner 2 in Race 2, and Runner 3 in Race 3. If all three of these picks win, the wager is won and the bettor receives a payout. If one, two, or all three of the selections fail to win, the bet is lost and the bettor receives no payout.

An ‘Up-and-Down single stakes about pairs’ bet is a little trickier. The wager on each option is determined by the success of the other, thus the name ‘Up-and-Down,’ and the bet is also known as a Vice Versa, a Cross Bet, or a Twist. It’s essentially a two-part wager with two options.

The first portion consists of two single bets and, as such, demands two stakes. If either option wins or breaks even, the stake on that half of the wager is repaid, just as it would be with two single bets. So, if both selections win or break even, the stakes on both half of the wager are repaid.

Why is the Round Robin Bet so special?

The distinction with this form of bet is that any winnings are effectively re-wagered on the opposite pick. So if you win on one option, you earn double the stake on the other, and so double profit if it also wins. If just one of your selections wins, you lose your whole bet, because your returned stake on the winning option was instantly reinvested in the other losing selection. You would, however, keep any benefit from the correct selection.

This is why it is also known as a ‘any-to-come if-cash’ bet: the second half only occurs if there is money left over after the first bet. The phrase “single stakes approximately” signifies that the stake on the second bet is the same as the stake on the first bet. In a ‘double stakes about’ bet, the original stake is doubled when the second half of the wager is placed.

Using a real-world example, it is simple to visualise how the Round-Robin bet might function. Assume the bettor has chosen the following three Champions League matches: Lyon will defeat Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain will defeat Barcelona, and AC Milan will defeat CSKA Moscow.


Round-Robin bets are a type of combination bet. It is identical to trixie bets, patent bets, Yankee bets, and the various Lucky bets that are available. It is not the same as a multiple bet. Both forms of bets include several selections, but the stake structure differs.

In a multiple bet, for example, one stake is spread across a number of distinct selections, and the earnings from each option are rolled over to the next selection. Multiple bets include doubles, trebles, and accumulators.

A combination bet is similarly made up of a number of options, but from those selections come a number of separate bets, necessitating the use of multiple stakes to fund the wager. A yankee bet, for example, is a type of combination bet. This form combines 11 bets into one, and because there are so many individual bets, each one must have a new stake of equal value to the original investment. In other words, if a stake of £2 is placed, the bet will cost that amount multiplied by the number of bets in the combination bet: £22 in the case of the yankee bet.

Talking about the big accas

There is a broad variety of combination bets available, each with a varied amount of selections and bets. These range from relatively low numbers, such as the Yankee bet and the Lucky 15 bet, to very high numbers, such as the Goliath bet, which allows gamblers to put 247 bets from eight selections. A Goliath bet includes 28 double bets, 56 five-strong accumulators, 56 treble bets, 28 six-fold accumulators, 70 four-pronged accumulators, 8 seven-fold accumulators, and one eight-fold accumulator. As a result, placing combination bets as large as the goliath stake is prohibitively expensive.

Round-Robin bets are difficult to understand and are one of the more intricate types of combination bets. As a result, anyone wishing to place one should proceed with caution to prevent losing out. However, if an educated bettor uses their insight wisely and makes sound decisions, they could stand to earn greatly from their audacity.

What Is a Round Robin Bet?

In sports betting, a round robin bet is just a sequence of smaller parlays built from a bigger list of bets. A round robin is named after a competition in which each team plays every other team in its group. The concept is the same. Instead of competing against one another, the teams form parlays. When you choose many games to wager on, your sportsbook will give you the option to form a series of smaller parlays comprised of your chosen games. The more games you choose, the more parlay combinations you can make — thousands, if you choose enough teams.

Is it a good idea to place a round-robin bet?

Round robins are frequently lousy bets. A round robin can transform a 2-1 effort in NFL point spread betting into a losing or break-even day. Round robins may also be incredibly expensive – if you place $5 on a six-team round robin with two- and three-team parlays, you’re already at 35 parlays ($175 total). You can bet the four- and five-team parlays off a list of six teams for an additional $280. You don’t have to spend $5 on each parlay; you can bet $1, $2, or whatever you like, but your rewards will be lower. I’ve always felt that spraying underdogs on the moneyline is the most effective and fascinating way to use round robins. They won’t all win, but by combining the combinations, you enhance your chances of winning a few of the parlays and collecting those juicy multipliers. You’re hedging your bets a little. Because college football has more unpredictability, I’ll pick 5-8 underdogs I believe can win outright and enter them into a series of round robins on most Saturdays.

Why Should I Participate in Round Robins?

Safety. In the above example, with five teams divided into twos and threes for $10 each parlay, the bettor would make $296 even if one of their teams lost. Six of the two-team parlays (a two-team parlay at -110 odds pays +260) would be cashed. Six of those at $26 each equals $156). They’d win four of the three-team parlays (a three-team parlay at -110 odds pays +600). Four of those at $60 each equals $240). So they’ve made $396 profit and lost $100 on the ten missed bets. When betting point spreads (with typical -110 odds) in a round robin, it’s rather simple to calculate your possible return, as we did above. Betting underdogs on the moneyline in a round robin system, on the other hand, may be highly profitable. Depending on the size of the underdog moneyline odds, bettors can walk away with a very big score from a round robin ticket even if only a tiny fraction of their teams win their game outright.
