Reverse Bet

Last Updated:

A reverse bet is a type of sports bet that combines two separate bets into one. It consists of two “if” bets placed in reverse order. In a typical “if” bet, the first wager must win in order for the second wager to have action. However, in a reverse bet, both wagers have equal importance and can win or lose independently of each other. For example, a reverse bet on teams A and B would consist of two bets: one on team A and another on team B. If team A wins, the bettor receives a payout and the second bet is still active. If team B also wins, the bettor receives a larger payout. If team A loses, the second bet is still active and can still win or lose independently. Reverse bets are popular among bettors who want to hedge their bets and reduce their risk while still having a chance to win a larger payout.
