Forecast betting is a form of betting where you predict the outcomes in a many-participant sport like racing or a league tournament. It has many forms and types, but it stands out as quite an exciting way to test your predicting skills and make some money in the process. Some parts of forecast betting can get a little confusing, hence, you might need help with calculating the outcomes.

Here are some things to know about calculating forecast bets. There are single and double forecast bets with the single forecast either being straight or reverse. The double forecasts can also be straight doubles and reverse double.

Straight forecast doubles is an arrangement in which you make four selections for two different events. You predict who comes first and second in the two events correctly to win the forecast double. Upon winning, the forecast doubles returns are calculated and given to you.

With reverse forecast doubles, you make two or more selections in two or more events. Your selection must come either first or second in any order to win in the selected events. It is possible to select three participants in one race, but the combinations increase a unit stake’s cost.

## Calculating Forecast Double Betting Odds

The bet returns calculation is made by multiplying the computer-generated dividends for each of the races.

### Calculating Straight Forecast Double Betting Odds

As stated earlier, you need two different races to be able to compound your odds.

For example:

Double         Cost: 2 stakes x INR 1 =INR 2

 Race 1. Pos. WON Race 2 Pos. WON Rapid fire 1st Black beast 1st Monohan boy 2nd White dust 2nd

In this case, the cost of one unit of a straight forecast double is INR 2. Let’s assume that the computer-generated dividend for race 1 is INR 10, while that of race 2 is INR 11. Therefore, the return for 1 unit of the straight forecast double would be:

10 x 11 = INR 110

Thus, a successful bet of INR 600 (300 units) would yield

300 x 110 = INR 33000

So someone who has staked INR 600 would walk away with INR 33000 if his predictions came true.

### Calculating Reverse Forecast Double Betting Odds

Here, you make more than one selection in one race and you are doing this for two races.

Assuming the cost for one unit of a straight selection is INR 1,

Reverse Doubles             4 stakes x INR 1 = INR 4

 Race 1 Outcome 1.  WON Race 1 Outcome 2        LOST Rapid fire 1st Rapid fire 2nd Monohan boy 2nd Monohan boy 1st
 Race 2 Outcome 1.  WON Race 2 Outcome 2        LOST Bullseye 1st Bullseye 2nd Feather light 2nd Feather light 1st

In this case, as long as one selection for race 1 won and one selection for race 2 won, the bettor would win. The cost of his stake was INR 40 for the unit cost of 1 reverse double. So, let’s say you bet INR 2000 and the computer-generated dividend for race 1 is INR 10 and that of race 2 is INR 11INR. This means the following:

10 x 11 = INR 110

500 units (INR 2000) of this would thus yield

500 x 110 = INR 55,000.

## Summary

The cost of staking on the reverse double forecast is higher but generally safer. Reverse and straight double forecasts provide amazing payouts although they are a bit difficult to predict. You can try it out today with us at 4rabet. Rest assured, we give the best-generated dividends here.
