An If bet is the combination of 2 – 3 straight bets, joined together by an “if condition” or “if clause”. There are 2 possible conditions – If win or tie – If win only. Likewise, each subsequent leg of the If Bet is will be placed as long as the preceding winner is the winner.
The main advantage of an if bet is that it allows you to place multiple wagers with a limited amount of funds as you can use a single risk amount to place up to 3 wagers. The wagers can be concurrent or overlapping. You can buy up to 3 points on each selection.
