What is a daily double bet in horse racing?

Last Updated:

A daily double bet is a type of wager in horse racing that requires bettors to correctly select the winners of two consecutive races. To place a daily double bet on your sports betting app, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your account on the app and navigate to the horse racing section.
  2. Choose the first race you want to bet on and select the daily double option.
  3. Select the horse you think will win the first race.
  4. Choose the second race you want to bet on and select the daily double option again.
  5. Select the horse you think will win the second race.
  6. Enter the amount you want to wager on the daily double bet.
  7. Review your selections and confirm the bet.

It is important to note that daily double bets are typically only offered on consecutive races at the same track. Additionally, the odds of winning a daily double bet are typically lower than other types of bets, as it requires correctly selecting the winner of two consecutive races.
