All about Football Accumulator Betting
Accumulators, or multi bets as they’re often referred to, tend to lend themselves to punters picking lots of low odds events and hoping they all come off.
But if we search for value, a topic that has been covered in a previous blog post, we will be able to put together an acca that has a reasonable chance of winning while getting an excellent return if it does come off.

The best way to do this is by examining selections for value individually before adding them into your accumulator.
In doing this, you would typically only need to add three or four bets into your accumulator to get the same odds by doing a 9 or 10 fold acca with short-priced options.
This basically means you’re handling your accumulator just like you would any other bet, which is definitely a wiser, more considered move.
Before placing your bet, it’s unquestionably a smart idea to look around different bookmakers to see which ones offer the best odds, so you can maximise your earnings. Seeing as they all vary in prices for certain markets and events, taking the time to check is worth your while.

So essentially, less is more when it comes to accumulators, for being shrewd and considered about your selections, not greedy and overambitious, will hold you in good stead to come out on top.
While you’re obviously not going to win every multi-bet you place, remaining patient and realistic is the best way to go, something that should allow you to find value and win more in the long run.
