#### 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!
