Basically dutching is the process of combining multiple selections into a single bet.

Let's say for example you are about to bet on a race and you think it is between two selections and are confident that one of the two will win, you could have a bet on each at the same stake, but if they are quoted at different prices then your return will be different depending on which selection wins.
