Football Accumulator Tips

When talking about Football Accumulator Tips we are talking about both the selections you make and also how and where you bet them. This section of the site should give you all the acca tips you need to give yourself the best possible chance of cashing in. We will discuss which leagues and markets to focus on when placing football accumulators. The final piece of the acca puzzle comes when getting the best possible bonuses and promos on your winning acca bets.

Best Leagues for Football Accumulators

The truth is there is no specific right and wrong when it comes to choosing the best leagues for football accumulators. The leagues to focus on are the ones in which you have the biggest betting edge. So you need to focus in on leagues where you have plenty of knowledge and experience. Bear in mind the odds compilers at bookies know more about the Premier League than any other league in the world, you are unlikely to catch too many mistakes there over a season. By specializing in the Armenian or Malaysian leagues, you can pretty quickly become more knowledgable than the traders setting the odds.

Best Bets for Football Accumulators

The best bets for football accumulators is a pretty ambigous term. The most traditional bets to make in football accumulators are 1X2 selections. Meaning picking a series of either home/away wins and/or draws. They are the accumulators that have proved the most popular over the last twenty years in football betting. That trend is beginning to change slightly though with more and more bets available to punters. A noteworthy example is the growing popularity of Both Teams To Score bets. There are several different types of BTTS bets available now and they are featuring in more and more accumulator bets by the week.

Football Accumulator Bonuses

Every bookie worth their salt offers football accumulator bonuses. Most bookies will require you to place an acca with a minimum of four selections to qualify for the bonus. The bonuses will increase depending on how many selections you have in your accumulator bet. Here is the general rule of thumb for all correct bonuses when placing football accumulators;

  • All Correct 4-Folds = 5% Bonus on winnings
  • 5-folds = 10% Bonus on winnings
  • 6-folds = 15% Bonus on winnings
  • 7-folds = 20% Bonus on winnings
  • 8-folds = 25% Bonus on winnings
  • 9-folds = 30% Bonus on winnings
