A Single bet consists of 1 selection that must win for you to be sure of making a profit.
A selection that is backed each way may be profitable even if it doesn’t win, but it must finish within the qualifying positions dictated by the place terms. To return a profit from just the place part of an each way bet, the odds of the placed selection must be above evens after the place fraction has been applied. For example, if the terms are 3 places at 1/5 odds, the total return will exceed the total stake for a selection finishing 2nd or 3rd, only if the win odds are over 5/1.
The Single Bet Calculator allows you to calculate the combined stake, return and profit for up to 20 Singles at a time, with a comprehensive range of options and settings.
