    Theoretical If Bet

    Game #1 starts at 4PM,
    Game #2 starts at 7PM

    Is there any type of bet available that will allow me to make a bet, "I want to bet $500 on Game #1; however, only if my $500 bet on Game #2 loses."

    Is this possible?

    Thanks.

    You can do that if you have one of these.

    However if you own one of these then you should have no problem nailing both bets, so you wont even have to make that If Bet.

    assuming the games are played on the same day and in chronological order, no, it's impossible...game #1 will be over by the time game #2 starts...there is no way possible for game #2 to lose before game #1 starts...you would have to either bet $500 on both games and take your chances or bet $500 on the game you like the best between the two.

    This would be an IF LOSE bet, which I have not seen available at a book since Aces Gold (yep, THAT long ago).

    I was going to say some sort of IF LOSE bet, but it's in reverse order. Not sure anyone offered that.

    Yes, order did not matter in If Lose bets, just like they still do not matter on If Win bets. What I mean is chronological order does not matter, you can choose either game as top option.

    What if your bet - let's call it team B - you bet straight for 2 units then you turn around and go IF win team A for 1 unit. then if Team A wins - team B had to lose so you do lose 2 juices and 1 unit ( maybe you can get a good juice deal someplace). Then you have your if bet on Team C. Just have to get the whole schmeer in before any game starts of course.

    You can have the 7pm game as the IF that triggers the 4pm game bet, but think you will only find an IF Win/Push option, not an If the 7pm loses.

    Are you hedging a contest play or something in case you lose your pick?
