# Canadian Bet Calculator

Contents

**In this article about a **Canadian Bet Calculator**, we define a **Canadian bet** and show how to **calculate the Canadian bet** by guiding you through the **basic principles** to bear in mind while calculating the **returns from any accumulator bet**. We highlight the **arithmetic you must do** before placing **a Canadian bet**.**

## How to Calculate a Canadian Bet?

### What Is a Canadian Bet?

A Canadian** bet is a multiple bet that consists of five selections** and involves a **total of 26 bets**, including **10 doubles, 10 treble bets, 5 fourfold accumulators and 1 fivefold accumulator** as shown in the chart below.

#### Basic Principles

You must always have in mind **two basic principles** to use while calculating the **returns on any accumulator**:

**Convert fractional**odds into**decimal odds;****Multiply**the**product of the decimal odds**by**the stake.**

#### Example: Three Selections Win

- Let’s assume that you
**bet on five selections, namely A, B, C, D, E, and three of those**selections (say,**A, B and C) went on to win**. - In that case, you would
**win one treble (ABC**) and**three doubles (AB, AC and BC**). If**uniform odds of 1/1 were offered**on each winning selection, we would**first convert the fractional odds**of 1/1 into**decimal odds of 2.00**. - With 26 bets, your
**minimum stake would be ₹260**if you**staked ₹10 on each bet**. - The
**yield on a treble**can be arrived at by**multiplying the product of the odds**by the stake as**₹80 (2x2x2x₹10).** - Similarly,
**the yield on each double can be calculated**as ₹40 (2x2x₹10). Hence**three doubles would yield ₹120.** - Thus, your
**total yield would be ₹200**, not enough to cover your**initial stake of ₹260.**

#### Lesson to Be Learned

**If only three selections** of a Canadian bet **won, even odds** (fractional 1/1, or decimal 2.0) offered on each selection **would not be enough** to earn you a profit.

#### What Odds Would You Need to Make a Profit if Two Selections Won?

**If only two selections won**, you would **get a return** on your bet on **only one double**. As we have seen earlier, the **return can be calculated as a product of the decimal odds** multiplied by the stake (₹10). We would need a **yield of more than ₹260** if we wanted **to make a profit** on the Canadian bet. So, the **product of the odds must exceed 26**. One such combination is **6×5=30.** This simply means that **decimal odds of 6.00 on one selection** and **5.00 on the other** would be **enough to earn you a profit**. Similarly, **decimal odds of 7.00 on one** selection combined with decimal odds of **4.00 on the other** would yield **returns of 280**. If **decimals odd of 3.00** are offered **on one** winning selection, you would **need minimum odds of 9.00 on the other** to make **a profit** as the **product of the odds**, 27 (9×3), **would exceed 26**.

#### How Much Would You Earn If All Selections Won?

If **all your five selections won** with **uniform decimal odds of 2.00**, you would get a **yield of ₹2320 **on your initial stake of **₹**260, **earning you a profit of ₹2060.**
