What is a Treble Bet?

A multiple bet consisting of three selections, all of which must win to gain a return.

Darts Treble Bullseye

The treble is a bet where three selections are made and the returns from the first are rolled over to the second, then the returns from the second rolled over to the third. Larger returns can be achieved using this bet at the expense of increased risk as all it takes is one losing selection for the bet to return nothing. Similar to the accumulator and double, only varying in their number of selections, a double having 2 and an accumulator having 4 or more.

Popular in all sports especially horse racing, all bets in a treble must be on separate events.


Once you understand the workings a treble bet calculator can be used to determine returns.

The following the football results will be used in the examples:

Home Team Score Away Team
Tottenham4 - 0Manchester City
Southampton3 - 2West Ham
Swansea1 - 2Aston Villa


Assuming a unit stake of £5 on Tottenham to win at odds 3/1 and Southampton to win as odds of 2/1 and Aston Villa to win at odds of 4/1 the winnings would break down as follows:

  • Returns = £5 * (3/1 + 1) * (2/1 + 1) * (4/1 + 1) = £300
  • Profit = Returns - Stake = £295


Using the same bet as above except instead of betting on Aston Villa, the Draw was chosen the bet returns would break down as follows:

  • The bet of Aston Villa to draw failed to win, therefore this bet returns £0
  • Profit/Loss = Returns - Stake = -£5
