If you’re into football, you might have heard of the accumulator, and if not, well you are in for a treat because it is one of the most famous types of football bets.

How does it work?


Accumulator bets are an excellent choice for those who want to win big by betting less. But it could also come with risks since for it to be a successful bet, every selection in the accumulator bet must win.


If any of your selections don’t win, then you will not receive any winnings. For example, you choose four separate teams to win their matches on a certain weekend; every one of those football teams must win. If only three won and one team is a draw, you will still lose your stake.

Here are a few football accumulator tips to remember before you try this market.


     1. Choose one type of accumulator


Accumulator bets with four selections are the most popular since they have bigger combined odds with just the right amount of selections. You can also start on double bets first until you’re more confident to bet on four and more. 



     2. Find sure-win games


This type of betting is only profitable if all of your selections win. So choosing football games impacts your probability of winning. Make sure to find football matches where one team has a high chance of winning against their opponent.


Gather data, analyze them, and see trends based on the statistics so you know which teams to look out for and who to bet on depending on who they are facing. 



     3. Make the calculations


Here’s an example of four selections. In single bets, you will get a total of €57 as winnings if you bet €10 each and won all four games.


This will give you a total of €57 as winnings. But once you subtract your wager amount, which is €40, then you only have a total of €17 as profit in reality. 


Game SelectionOddsBet ResultBet WagerTotal
Man city v Tottenham1.60Won€10 x 1.60 = €16 

Winnings: €57

Wager: €40

Profit: €17

Man United v Leeds1.55Won€10 x 1.55 = €15.5
Norwich v Liverpool1.30Won€10 x 1.30 = €13
Chelsea v Arsenal1.25Won€10 x 1.25 = €12.5


That’s most likely because the odds are low in the first place. But what if these are sure-win bets? Should you let go and find higher but riskier odds? No, there is a way to make bigger profits despite these odds.


So if you have sure-bet wins, you can try combining them into one accumulator bet.


Following the game selections above, the betting odds will increase to 4.03 and when you bet €10 on it and win, then you receive a total of €40.3 or a profit of  €30.3 (minus the wager amount).

     4. Use a betting site with good odds


Before placing your bet of the day, it’s definitely a smart idea to look around different bookmakers and betting sites to see which ones offer the best odds, so you can maximize your earnings.


Each online bookie varies in prices for certain markets and events, so you definitely should check before making a multiple bet for either big or small stakes.
