Football Accumulator Tips

Bookmakers like Skybet offer the following promotions to existing customers based on an accumulator which utilises accumulator tips:

Enhanced Acca And Accumulator Tips

Many football fans like to combine a selection of matches in a multiple bet. It helps if there is a good source of profitable accumulator tips. Multiples are given that name because the odds for each leg are multiplied to give the accumulated odds. Some bookmakers often provide improved odds which adds to the potential profit from a winning acca. Enhanced odds boost the returns from a winning bet and that can justify subscribing to accumulator tips.

Each week bookmakers will provide a selection of odds enhancements from the major leagues and fixtures like the Premier League in England and other domestic leagues in Europe. Enhanced accas can improve the returns from matches in the Champions League and Europa League and international fixtures. These competitions provide the best scope for the sale of accumulator tips which must all win for a winning bet. If one leg lets you down it’s a losing bet. Bookmakers like to take accas because they have many chances for the bet to fail. They are quite happy to enhance the profits from a winning multiple bet because there are many more losing ones.

There is usually a scale of percentage enhancements based on the number of selections in a multiple bet. For example, the boost might range from 5% for a four fold to over 50% for a 15-fold or more. Some bookmakers specify a minimum of a fivefold for the enhanced odds which means to place a qualifying bet you must source five accumulator tips. An acca has the potential to produce a jackpot win for a small stake. The strike rate is low but that can produce a healthy return on investment. The profit can cover the cost of the accumulator tips.

Acca Insurance And Accumulator Tips

Even if you use accumulator tips for your multiple bets there can often be one losing selection. There must be countless five-folds that produce four winners. It’s frustrating to be almost right but help is at hand because some bookmakers offer insurance against one losing leg in a multiple bet. Acca insurance means the stake is refunded or there is a free bet if one team lets you down. This insurance is usually related to football and there is a ready supply of football accumulator tips.

The football acca insurance has the following features:
  • Usually a minimum of five selections.
  • Based on accumulator tips.
  • Insurance on the hugely popular accumulator bets.
  • Stake refunded if there is one losing leg.
  • Maximum bet of £25.
  • Several bookmakers offer acca insurance.
However, its debateable how much acca insurance compensates for almost having a winning multiple bet. Even if all the selections in a fivefold are Evens the combined odds for all five teams is as follows:

(2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2) -1 = 31 or £310 profit for a £10 bet.

Having the stake returned or qualifying for £25 in the form of a free bet is nothing compared to the potential return when you combine five winning accumulator tips. Acca insurance is most common for football but some bookmakers have the same offer for other sports. You can combine accumulator tips from a mix of sports and benefit from acca insurance when one leg does not win.
