German term or phrase: 2er Kombinationen errechnen
Unter Systemwette versteht man eine Kombinationswette aus bis zu zehn Spielen, bei der jedoch nicht unbedingt alle ausgewählten Spiele richtig getippt sein müssen, um einen Gewinn zu erzielen. Das System 2 aus 3 (2/3) bedeutet zum Beispiel, dass von den 3 ausgewählten Tipps mindesten 2 richtig sein müssen, ein Wettergebnis dürfte also falsch sein, um die Wette trotzdem zu gewinnen. Es werden alle möglichen ***2er-Kombinationen errechnet***, die sich aus den 3 ausgewählten Wettereignissen ergeben.

Explanation:
You may have to go with something like "all possible combinations of 2 numbers from the selected 3"

However, just to confuse you more, in the USA, at horse races you can bet a trifecta. This is where you pick the first three horses to win the race. If you pick them in order, you can win a bunch of money. However, you can also 'box' them. In this case, you do not specify the order, just the 3 horses. If they finish in any order, you win. Not as much as the straight trifecta, but better than losing :). You may be able to work something like that into your context.
