Trixie Bet Tips
Trixies are commonly used in betting across various sports. The betting system is a simple one with only 3 selections needed. It’s made up of 4 bets, the three possible double bets and all 3 selections in a treble bet.
The most common sport you would make a Trixie bet in is horse racing. Secondary would be greyhound racing and then following that it would be the other sports in order of popularity.
In football betting, we can make a rather big generalisation. Punters will bet singles or bigger accumulators. They tend to miss out doubles and trebles and instead plump for 5-folds upwards which often come with acca insurance bonuses.
What is a Trixie bet?
A betting system used to combine bets on three tips at once. You need at least two winning tips to guarantee a return though as it’s just 3 doubles and a treble covered, no single bets.

It’s not a downright silly idea to bet Trixies. If your tips are all value bets then you aren’t doing any actual damage to your bank long-term.
