Here we pass on some insight from our team of experts and their recommendations for structuring accumulator bets. ‘The Acca’ as it has become more commonly known, is essentially several different betting selections compiled into one larger, longer bet.
By doing this, the odds of each selection are multiplied and the potential returns on an accumulator bet are very high. It is these high odds that make the accumulator bet so desirable among modern day punters.
With high odds normally comes a low chance of success, but if you follow our tips on how to build a winning accumulator you can be confident you are making the right selections and increasing your chances of a return.
The majority of games end with the home team winning. This may seem obvious and is known as 'Home Team Advantage' but a number of factors like the crowd do offer additional assistance to their home side.
This is an advantage that you should also look to utilise by focusing on who is most likely to win from the home selections available.
Most people are aware of some figures and statistics that are available for games but you need to make sure you do all your research on the market you are looking to bet on. Find the figures on your teams average goals per game for example, then compare this to their last 4 or 5 games to see how they have been doing. Then also check who was playing in these matches and who is going to be playing during your game.
Use every bit of information you can to narrow down your selections to only the most likely of winners.
There are a vast selection of markets that you can bet on in any given game. Your accumulator bet does not just have to consist of who is going to win. You can choose a number of options like :-
- How many goals there will be?
- Are both teams going to score?
- How many corners will there be?
- Will there be any yellow or red cards?
Make sure you view all the available options and make your selections based on the most favourable outcome.
The name of the game is finding value in a selection. If you believe you have found an even money 1/1 option that should be odds on, then back it and add it to your accumulator. The bookies don't always get it correct and these are too good to pass on.
As mentioned previously, with high odds comes a low chance of success. By sticking to the lower odds, safer selections you have a far greater chance of a return. If you think the 8/1 away team will beat the league leaders, then do a separate bet and leave them out of your accumulator.
Our team of experts look to combine a few of these types of low odd, safer bets into our 'Double It' bet to show you how it's done.
As a punter you are spoilt for choice with the number of bonuses, price boosts and enhanced multiples that are on offer from the bookies and you should look to take advantage at every opportunity.
