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 chosen result at the end of each half needing to occur for the bet to win. This is a common market in 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.
