A treble bet is an accumulator bet with three selections. The bet is that all three selections will win, and is normally seen as three single bets, with the winnings from one selection rolling over to be a single bet on the second selection and then third selection. All three choices must win for the punter to get a return.
With a treble bet being a simple accumulator you’ll find virtually every bookie that offers fixed odds betting will let you have this bet. Some Asian bookmakers and betting exchanges don’t but on the whole you will not have a problem placing a treble bet.

They are defiantly something worth looking into when thinking of having a treble bet as they are normally chosen from the three biggest games of the day. Several bookies will also offer a bonus on winning trebles. This is a percentage bonus and your extra winnings will depend on the price of your original selections. Here are some recommended bookies.
TitanBet, Youwin, and bet365 are three excellent bookies that offer a percentage bonus on selected trebles. Titanbet offers a mammoth 10% on top tier European football, while bet365 offer a very generous 5% on several sports from major football leagues, selected basketball leagues and American football to name a few.

Maths to calculate a winning Treble
(odds1 x odds2 x odds3) x Stake = Winnings
Using the formula from the calculations section you’ll see it’s very simple to work out a treble bet without having a betting calculator available. As long as you are comfortable with multiplication you’ll find you never need a treble calculator again (of course this is only true if there are no extra complications such as each-way betting, rule 4 or dead heat calculations).
The maths in this example is for a £5 win only treble where the selections are priced at 3.2, 5.5 and 10. With this information all that needs doing is to multiply the decimal odds together and multiple this with the stake bet.
(3.2 x 5.5 x 10) x 5 = 880
This means your total return from the bet in this example is £880 and as this money also covers your original stake total profit is £875.
