Canadian Bet Calculator
The Super Yankee bet is also known as a Canadian bet, and is made up of 26 bets on 5 selections.
Broken down, this is 10 doubles, 10 trebles, five four fold accumulators and one five fold accumulator. This means that a £1 Super Yankee would cost £26, and a £1 each-way Super Yankee would cost £52. It’s one of the biggest bets available, but this can make it useful for sports betting if it’s used correctly. Although you only need two out of five selections to win, the fact there are 26 lines involved means that it would probably work out better to get three or four winners if you want to get a decent profit from your stake.
Making a Super Yankee bet is easy, as all you have to do is go in to select your stake and place the bet. On some sites, or with other bookmakers you visit in person, bear in mind that the Super Yankee may be referred to as a Canadian bet. Pick your five selections, add them to your betslip and then don’t forget your stake will be multiplied by 26.
Before placing a stake on such a large bet, it’s recommended to use a Super Yankee bet calculator to experiment with various options so you have more of an awareness of what you could profit or lose in the best and worst case scenarios. To use such a calculator, enter the bet details, which includes whether it’s each way, whether the odds format is fractions or decimals, and the stake. Then enter the odds before mixing and matching with various outcomes to see what the total stake, return and profit would be.
If none or only one of your selections is a winner, you will lose your outlay, so if you placed a £26 outlay at £1 a bet, you would lose £26, due to the lack of singles. If you get 2 winners, you would receive a return of £4, which would still be an overall loss. Three winners would provide a return of £20, which is better, but still a loss. The only scenario where you start to see a profit with the Super Yankee is where four selections win, as you would receive a return of £72. In the best case scenario, where all five win, your returns would be £232. This set of scenarios shows that it’s important to select the correct odds with the Super Yankee. In other words, the longer the odds on your betslip, the easier it will be to make a profit.
As there are so many multiples involved in a Super Yankee, bets with odds between 4/1, or 5.00, and 8/1, or 9.00, would provide the best chances of winning, as well as reduce the possibility of making a full loss on your bet. When it comes to football betting, good bets with the Super Yankee would be Both Teams To Score And Win, Correct Score Bets and Half Time or Full Time.
