# What is Dutch Betting?

Itâ€™s time we had a long hard look at a wagering method called â€˜Dutch Betting.â€™

Many Punters across the world like to formulate their own ratings for horse races, premiership markets and more. But when deciding on which selection to back, they donâ€™t always necessarily come up with just one result. I know of one such person who after calculating his ratings for particular horse races, can sometimes back up to 6 horses in the one race!

Backing multiple competitors in a market may not be unfamiliar to you or your friends.

For example, you might be the type of punter who likes to back 3 or 4 players in the â€˜First Try Scorerâ€™ market s of NRL matches.

Letâ€™s say the Roosters are playing the Sea Eagles and you decide to pick the following four players to place a wager on for first try scorer:

David Williams @ \$8.00
Roger Tuivasa-Sheck @ \$9.00
Kieran Foran @ \$15.00
Mitchell Pearce @ \$16.00

You place \$10 on each for a total outlay of \$40 and before you know it, David Williams crashes over in the corner and scores the first try of the match!

Your \$40 outlay has now become \$80 but part of you canâ€™t help but wish that Mitchell Pearce had been the first try scorer and instead of \$80 youâ€™d be flicking your fingers through \$160.

This is where â€˜Dutchâ€™ betting can be used to ensure the same profit no matter which player scores first. All you have to decide is the total amount youâ€™re willing to outlay, and the aussportsbetting.com Dutch Calculator will do the rest for you!

Now letâ€™s go through the previous scenario and apply Dutch Betting to the situation.

Youâ€™ve got your 4 selections and you know youâ€™re willing to bet \$40. Enter those numbers into the calculator as shown and tick the box next to each selection to have them included:

Now hit â€˜Calculate Strategyâ€™ and underneath the calculator youâ€™ll see the â€˜Dutch Betting Strategyâ€™ section will now tell you how much to place on each selection to ensure a similar result no matter which player scores first!

Now as you can see, if you place the according value amount on each selection you will profit between \$69.44 and \$69.52 no matter which player scores first!

The strategy section also tells you that backing the 4 selections in this way is the same as backing one selection at odds of \$2.74

The calculator also includes a commission column for those wishing to calculate the final potential profit after Betfair take out their commission on winnings.

So there you have it! A simple method for finding an even result that can be applied to any market with 3 or more selections!

Happy Punting,
