So, what is a heinz bet?
A Heinz Bet is a bet that consists of six selections that are rolled up into 57 bets, fifteen doubles, twenty trebles, fifteen 4-folds, six 5-folds and a 6-fold. The funny fact about this bet is that it was indeed named after Heinz Baked Beans which has 57 varieties.
A Heinz bet is a good way to reduce your risk when betting on six selections as you can often make your money back if only half of your selections win and make a large profit if they all come in.
A heinz bet is considered a full cover bet as each of your selections is covered by doubles, trebles, 4-folds, 5-folds and a 6-fold.
Heinz Bet Composition
You have six selections in a heinz (1,2,3,4,5,6), below you can find a breakdown of how the bets are covered:
Doubles: x 15
Trebles: x 20
4-Folds: x 15
5-Folds: x 6
6-Folds: x 1
As a heinz consists of 57 separate bets, if you were to put £1 on, your total stake would be £57 (£1 x 57).
What Is A Heinz Bet Good For?
As a heinz bet has so many variations you need to get a good balance between longer odds and probability in order to make this work for you.
My advice is to break your bet in half, pick three selections at odds around Evens (2.00) and your other three selections at slightly longer odds around 5/1 (6.00). This means that you have a greater chance of winning a larger return by ensuring there is a higher likelihood of landing a treble as a minimum.
I suggest looking at three selections for Both Teams To Score and then add in three Correct Score bets as these combinations of odds should land you a decent return.
