Reverse Bet - Action Reverse

The Reverse Bet is also known as the action reverse and is an offshoot of the if-bet and much different from the rolling if bet. The reverse bet is a series of if bets that are connected in forward and reverse order.

When a sports bettor uses a reverse bet they can combine multiple sports. Here is an example using football and baseball.

Part I: New York Giants -5 $110 to win $100 Double Action (If win, push, no action, or cancelled)

Then:

Boston Red Sox (-175) Risk $110 to win $63

Part II: Boston Red Sox (-175) $110 to win $63 Double Action (If win, push, no action, or cancelled)

Then:

New York Giants -5 Risk $110 to win $100

Total Risk – $220 (maximum risk) to win $326

With this type of reverse there are several outcomes.

If the Giants and the Red Sox both win, you will win $163 on the first part of the wager and $163 on the reverse part, for total winnings of $326.

If the Giants win and the Red Sox lose, you will lose $10 on the first part of the wager and $110 on the reverse part, for total losses of $120.

If the Red Sox win and the Giants lose, you will lose $110 on the first part of the wager and $47 on the reverse part, for total losses of $157.

If one team pushes, is no action, or is cancelled and the other team is a loss, you will lose $220.

If one team pushes, is no action, or is cancelled and the other team wins, you will either win $126 (63+63) for the Red Sox or $200 for the Giants (100+100).

As you can see the reverse is not complicated at all and is another way to make big money when betting on sports!
