What Is A Football Accumulator And How To Bet On One?
The value of each single bet is multiplied into the next, creating a huge value bet, in this case a whopping 66.24%. We have our four fold Premier League weekend football accumulator discussed previously. We will assume that based on our research, each of these selections is a value bet.
If that voided leg means that an individual bet within a multiple becomes a single bet, then this single bet will stand. Payout Limits – Most sports and markets have maximum payout limits, big sports like football will have much higher limits than smaller sports like darts. Note this when placing an acca as this is what will define the maximum payout. There is no point placing a darts acca that will win you £50,000 if the maximum payout is £25,000 for example. If you mix sports in your acca too the max payout will be defined by the sport with the lowest limit.
For example, fair odds in a coin toss, a proposition, would be odds of 2.00. However, bookmakers do not offer fair odds on a coin toss or any other betting market. They will offer odds something in the range of 1.90, a commission of 5%. For example you may have five single bets, each of them offering 3% value. But combining these value bets into a fivefold acca, will see that value multiply to just under 16%. The number one benefit of betting on accas is the ability to multiply betting value.
In a football accumulator, the punter makes multiple selections of four or more and combines them into one bet. This type of bet is popular among casual punters who only have a flutter at the weekend, and can return huge winnings if successful. In this article we will cover how accumulators work, provide some examples and answer some common questions you are likely to have around football accumulators.
Any race with less than five runners will be win only, whereby no bets can be placed on a horse each-way. If there are five, six or seven runners in a race, then there are two places available, meaning there is a payout if backed each-way on horses who finish first or second, at 1/4 of the odds. The shorter the each-way price, the better it is for the punter. As fields get bigger, the place odds of one-quarter the win odds are more and more in favour of the bookmaker. If you want to play safe’ it might be wiser to bet two horses for a win in the race, rather than bet each-way. At bet365, when you place an accumulator bet, you can choose from a range of different sports that are in the category box on the left.
If Man Utd beat Chelsea, for example, but Arsenal lose to Everton, the bet in the example given above would fail.
