Lay a 2 bet multiple/combo

Sun Mar 25, 2012 5:00 pm

Sorry if that is a stupid question, but can I lay a combo (2 bets on the slip)
Would be great if someone could let me know.
Thanks so much

I understand that you can but certain conditions have to occur.
Namely there has to be a period of time between the first wager completing and the second wager commencing.

The idea being that you lay the first wager as normal and wait...

If you win at the exchange then bank your profit (as the multiple loses)
If the first leg wins at the bookie then you need to lay the second leg but remember that the stake is
now (original stake x odds from first leg)

Or something like that. I haven't done this myself, seems a bit risky as you can't guarantee the odds you can lay on the second
bet at the time you bet the multiple.

I suppose you might accept a loss if the signup bonuses require you make multiples to get freebets but there is uncertainty
involved so there is an element of gambling

...but that strategy won't work before the first game starts

Do not think so, I can ask my technicians if they can prepare it anytime soon.

Is not that so simple, because you left on bet open (the second match) and in 4 hours many things can hapend, the odd can goes against you or in your favor, maybe can be recomended for lower stakes.

If you leave bet opened at "soft bookie" most of the times market will move in your favour, even increasing earnings.
