American — bet (6)


I believe the answer is:


I believe this clue is a double definition.

'american' is the first definition.
(I know that Yankee is a type of american)

'bet' is the second definition.
(type of bet in gambling)

(Other definitions for yankee that I've seen before include "N. American" , "Union soldier in the American Civil War" , "A northerner during the American Civil War" , "American - bet" , "Y in communications" .)

I've seen this clue in The Guardian.
