Yankee Bet on Outrights
Outright in sports betting simply means staking on the outcome of a sports tournament instead of a single match or game. A Yankee outright bet can give you a substantial payout since outright bets usually carry bigger odds than other selections. Although it's possible to place outright bets after a tournament or league hasd.
Football Yankee Outright Bet
One of the most popular sports for Yankee outright bets is football. In this type of Yankee betting, your four selections would be on four football tournaments instead of single matches. For instance, following our bet examples above, the Yankee bet can change to:
- Manchester United to win Premier League
- Real Madrid to win Spanish La Liga
- Bayern Munich to win German Bundesliga
- PSG to win Ligue 1
All other Yankee bet rules apply. Bear in mind that your original stake gets multiplied by 11 on Yankee bets since 11 bets are made in total. So, if you bet £3 on these Yankee selections, your total stake would be £33 (£3 x 11)
Horse Racing Yankee Outright Bet
Horse Racing is another sporting event perfect for Yankee outright bets. Before the beginning of an event, you can place bets on the particular horse that will win.
You can stake each-way Yankee consisting of one Win and one Place bet. With an each-way bet, you are betting on your selections to win the race or finish in the top three places. This means that even if none of the selections lands, you will still get a nice payout if they finish in their' place positions'.
However, each-way Yankee bets double the number of your bets to 22, thereby doubling the initial cost of your Yankee stake.
For instance, if you stake £1 on an each-way Yankee bet, it will get multiplied by 22, and your stake price will be £22.
Permed Yankee Bet
While you can only have four selections on a standard Yankee, a permed Yankee bet allow you to bet on five selections or more. If you pick 5 games, the Yankee bet will cover every possible combination of four different selections. You will also have five individual Yankees (1234, 1235, 1245, 1345, 2345) and a total of 55 unit bets.
Make six selections on your permed Yankee bet, and you will have 15 separate Yankees and 165 unit bets in total. Although, in theory, you can have more than seven Yankees, this doesn't play out well in practice because of the complexity in calculating the number of bet details involved. While a permed Yankee can give you a substantial total return, it's a massive risk. That's why we don't recommend making such bets if you don't have a solid bankroll.
