Accumulator Betting

What is an accumulator bet?

Often credited as being the most popular method of backing more than one selection at a time, accumulator betting offers the opportunity to include more outcomes whilst boosting your overall odds. Your bet will receive a larger price based on the number of selections involved and the size of the odds in each selection, with most bookmakers usually allowing as many as sixteen selections per accumulator.

An accumulator is made from any bet with four or more selections. One selection makes up a single, two make up a double, and three make up a treble, leaving anything more substantial to fall into the category of being an accumulator bet. Including more selections typically leads to a larger overall price and more in terms of potential winnings but less chance of the bet actually landing, and fewer selections usually lead to a smaller overall price and less in terms of potential winnings but a stronger chance of landing successfully.

Although it’s possible to build a bet accumulator from any sport with a market that allows the option to form multiples, the football betting accumulator is the most common. Popularity around football accumulator bets is partly down to the number of football fixtures played every day, how simple it is to attempt to land a multiple bet in football, and the number of markets in football betting which allow you to include more than just one selection at a time.

Football accumulator betting explained

The flexible nature of football accumulator betting has made it easier for a lot of bettors to get involved in staking money in this way. It’s assumed that football accumulators will be made from the match result market from several games, but you’re not limited to this single version of online accumulator betting, as most bookmakers make it possible to work a lot of the more popular markets into your bet.

Due to the immense scale of football betting in general, there are markets covering practically any outcome that could happen within a ninety-minute football fixture. Although there are some markets that bookmakers will prevent you from including, a lot of the more popular options are available for creating a full accumulator from, or even for mixing with each other to make a mixed accumulator.

Markets that are usually allowed for adding into your football accumulators include:

The only consideration to bear in mind is that some markets can influence whether or not you’re allowed a cash-out.

Limitations to online accumulator betting remain open for a lot of attributes, even including the matches that you can consider betting on. You’ll find incentives for betting on individual leagues, as some bookmakers offer bonuses based on bets that stay exclusive to specific divisions, but in terms of your own freedom, you’re able to include any football matches into your bet.

Premier League, Championship, League One, League Two, non-league, German Bundesliga, Spanish La Liga, Italian Serie A, French Ligue 1 and every other covered football league will be available for including in your bet, and bookmakers provide these markets in advance to allow you more time to get involved.

How to create a football accumulator bet

Choosing to bet on several outcomes within the same bet using a football accumulator is easy. All you need to do is access your chosen bookmaker application or website, select as many selections as you want, and the option to compile all of these predicted outcomes into a single bet will become available. Once placed, you’ll be able to track your bet from within your bookmaker account, and you can usually set alerts for live updates on every involved fixture.

Your bet slip is usually where the option arises, with singles, doubles, trebles, and every variation of accumulator included. If you’re picking a specific number of selections, you might find the opportunity to back specialised markets such as a Lucky 15. These are primarily used in horse racing, where four selections are tied to each other over the course of fifteen different bets.

As for a football betting accumulator, you’ll usually see options of four folds, five folds and more after the options to back singles, doubles or trebles. Next to the accumulator option, you’ll see ‘1x’. This simply means that you’re only putting one stake on, differing massively to betting on a Lucky 15 or by choosing to get behind every chosen selection individually.

Following accumulator betting tips

Actively creating your own football accumulator bets is enjoyable if you know what to look for and if you feel like you’ve gained enough experience to be doing it in an effective manner. For those who aren’t as accomplished with betting on football accumulators, it could be tempting to rely on somewhere else for accumulator tips, where the bets are developed by someone with experience.

Our football accumulator tips page is running constantly in order to provide visitors to the site with our thoughts on acca bets that are worth getting behind. The only shortcoming that we might find is if there are not enough football fixtures being played, but we’ll usually improvise based on the number of worthwhile markets all over the globe, eventually referring to not as favourable leagues if it comes to it.

By frequently checking back on our footy accumulator tips page, you’ll find daily football bets that cater to the mass of football fixtures which are played around the world every day of the year. As with all of our football tips, our accumulator bets are picked using statistics, form, records, consideration for available players, and all other variables and obstacles that could affect the outcome of the market we’re building a prediction around.

We would advise that all followers who are interested in betting on football refer to our football accumulators page, as it’s the primary page that we look to update every single day. We enjoy betting in multiples to such an extent that we’re even named after the activity of betting on footy accumulators, so it’s clear to see that – above all else - they’ve become our speciality.

Choosing the best betting app for accumulators

Using the internet for picking bets, finding football tips, and placing bets is something that almost every punter does, but it would be more useful to have something that’s exclusively intended for betting. Betting Hub is an app that we created to improve betting as a whole, and it’s emerged as an expert way of enhancing how you place football accumulator bets.

A unique feature from B is that you can add as many selections as you want to the app, compare the odds that you’ll get for your bet over every popular bookmaker, sign up through the best available sign-up offer, place your bet through the app, and track every goal as they happen. You can even read previews and news pieces from via the app, allowing you to see all of the latest articles, as well as pick up some insight over upcoming football fixtures.

In essence, the Betting Hub app compiles everything you’d need to place a betting accumulator in one place. You’ll need internet access to use the app, but you’ll use a smaller chunk of your mobile data and take up far less time through opting to bet through Betting Hub rather than operating across several websites to cover all bases necessary for picking an accumulator which stands a chance of landing.

Finding the best price for an accumulator bet

Anyone who chooses to place a bet will be keen to find the best possible price on the market. If you were backing a single by itself, this would be far easier as your search would only be based around the odds on the single selection that you’re interested in getting behind. With more than one selection, finding the best price becomes more convoluted based on the number of selections that you choose to include.

If you decide to use Accatracker for your football accumulator bet, you’ll be able to add all of your selections into one place, with the app automatically calculating the bookmaker which provides the strongest odds for those selections combined into one massive bet. By choosing not to refer to Accatracker, it could be more difficult to source the best odds, but it’s still possible as long as you have the time to prepare.

An extensive number of different bookmakers operate across the UK and Ireland, so it’s hard to look at every single variation before placing your bet. It would be advised to look at some of the main options that spring to mind for you to get a grasp over where is offering the biggest odds, but it’s not always the overall price that’s worth considering by itself. You need to reflect on the odds for every single one of your selections, as some bookmakers might provide a significantly stronger price for a few of your selections, making your overall bet far more appetising as a result.

Everybody who wants to place a bet will always want to seal the best price, so it makes sense to put the effort in to assure that you’ve been able to do this. Even backing your bets early can have a positive impact, as bookmakers often underestimate a team’s chances when they first open the market, only to change it later after more news has surfaced surrounding form, past records, and player availability for the game in question.
