An exacta bet is exactly the same as a straight forecast or perfecta bet. It involves picking two selections that must finish first and second in the correct order.

This market is most commonly associated with horse racing and greyhound racing but it is now offered for football where bookmakers offer forecasts for first and second in a particular league.
