What is a Sure single bets?
A single bet is one of the bet types that’s the easiest to understand as it is where you place a bet on a single outcome of an event.
Punters place a bet on a market such as a football team to win a match and if the selection wins, the bookie will pay out the winnings. If the selection loses, the bookmaker will keep the stake.
The single bet is good as it means you are only betting on one outcome rather than multiples, where you need a number of results to be paid out.
Single bets can be used on a favourite that will have low odds or can even be odds-on, or on outsiders with larger odds that can potentially pay out bigger winnings.
