What is a Double Result?
A double result refers to the results at both half-time and full-time of a sporting contest, also known as a Half-Time/Full-Time market. This market splits the outcome into two halves, with the result of each half needed to occur for the bet to win. This is common in football/soccer so we will use such an example. Given the three outcomes of Win, Draw or Loss for each half, the types of markets within double result are Win/Win, Win/Draw, Win/Loss, Draw/Loss, Draw/Draw, Draw/Win, Loss/Loss, Loss/Draw and Loss/Win. Win/Loss means a team has to win the first half and go on to lose the match. Win/Win means the team has to be winning at half-time and go on to win the match, but not necessarily win the second half. For example, if Team A leads 4-0 at the break and goes on to win 4-2, they have lost the second half but still won in the Win/Win market.
