It's Your Bet was a game show airing in syndication. It was a revival of the 1965 game show I'll Bet.

Two celebrity couples predict how well each's spouse will answer questions. The wife or husband of one couple listens via phone what the question is and wagers up to 100 points that his/her mate can or cannot answer the question. The question is read out loud to the mate. A correct prediction scores the points. Incorrect predictions score the points to the other couple.

The first couple to 200 points wins $200 for a member of the studio audience and a chance to win some more prizes in the Preference Game. From a partition, the mates choose which of three answers to a question the others will select. Two questions are posed.
