What is a Double Action in betting?
Double Action refers to a bet which only comes into play if the preceding bet wins, ties or gets cancelled. This is a bet that is conditional on the initial bet / bets. These are also called 'if bets'. What this means is 'if', for example, the bettor's first bet wins, they get to decide what happens next (such as if the New York Yankees win, place half the winnings on the Chicago White Sox to win). This gives flexibility to the bettor to place Double Action bets in cases where betting on two singles is at an inconvenient time for them.
