Dutching – A Beginner’s Guide

| September 28, 2010 | 4 Replies

In a nutshell

Dutching is when you back two or more selections in the same event in an attempt to guarantee a winner. This is particularly useful in events where there are one or two big favourites.

Advantages and disadvantages

Dutching is a great way of improving your chances without taking too much out of any potential profit.

In many big events, such as the World Cup and the Six Nations, there are one or two clear favourites and these can often be backed at a good price pre-tournament. By making more than one selection, you can therefore guard against one team underperforming and still get good betting value.

It is also very easy to calculate how much to stake on each selection in order to receive an even return. Simply head over to Odds Checker and the dutching calculator will do all the hard work for you!

Dutching opportunities are easier to spot than arbitrage and they also tend to offer better returns. However, the one downside with dutching is that you can never 100% guarantee yourself a winner. In the crazy world of sport, just because there are one or two big favourites, it doesn’t mean that they are necessarily going to win.

Step by step

1. Make two or more selections at decent prices (the more selections you make, the bigger the prices have to be in order to secure a profit).
2. Head over to the dutching calculator.
3. Decide on the total amount that you want to stake and enter this figure into the calculator, along with the relevant prices.
4. Check how much profit the bet will make and if you’re happy with the outcome, use the stakes provided by the calculator.


Example one:

You are sure that either Spain or Brazil will win the World Cup and see that Spain are available at 6.00 and Brazil at 7.00.

You want to stake a total of £100, so you enter all the information into the dutching calculator and find that if either side wins, you will make a profit of £223.08.

In order to do so, you have to stake £53.85 on Spain and £46.15 on Brazil.

Where can I use this technique?

This technique can be used anywhere, but as with all betting, you should try and sign up to as many bookmakers as possible in order to get the best available odds.

    This formula you have given about DUTCHING is out of this world.

    Most of my bets are derived around DUTCHING.I used to back mainly each way but find this method far more lucrative.I would suggest for horseracing you concentrate on the better class races.

    Thanks a bundle.
