When do Squawka release their Football Acca Tips?

We aim to give our punters time to research the best odds and offers for the respective fixtures.

Therefore, we look to post our football accumulator tips between 24 and 48 hours prior to kick-off – although this is subject to change if selections are held on separate days.

Of course, some customers may wish to wait until the last minute before placing their bets – thus accommodating for injuries and general team news. Nevertheless, they can be guided by our match previews which provide predictions, recent form and team news.


What is an Accumulator Bet?

More popularly known as ‘accas’, football accumulators are bets that include multiple selections.

However, multiple selections don’t necessarily have to be in the same market or league. Most bookmakers will offer ‘coupons’ where you can place several bets in the same market such as ‘full-time result’ and ‘both teams to score’ and these tend to be the most popular accumulator bets – but you can combine bets from different markets for your own style accumulator too – like the one shown below.

acca bet slip

The accumulator of betting is hugely popular with punters due to the odds multiplying with every selection made, and thus increasing the value of any potential winnings.

The fact that this can be done across a wide range of markets, and enhances the excitement levels of customers as they keep a close eye on proceedings with a hefty payout just a few correct predictions away.

What types of markets can I put accumulator bets on?

As mentioned, you can tailor your accumulator accordingly using several markets – and can sometimes mix and match. Let’s take a closer look at some of the more popular ones.


This is as simple as it sounds. A double bet is a selection that combines just two of your picks. Most bookmakers will refer to this as a double, rather than an accumulator although the premise still remains that you need all of your selections to be successful in order for the bet to win.


Add one more selection to a double and you get a treble! Again, most bookmakers will refer to trebles as such and it’s only when you place 4 or more selections that you will have your bet viewed as an accumulator, or in some cases…


As you may expect, a fourfold is an accumulator that combines four selections. The same applies to bets placed with five, six, seven etcetera selections which you will often hear described as fivefolds, sixfolds or sevenfolds.


This is probably the most common and simple market to follow when it comes to building accumulators.

A great deal of research is not necessarily required if this is your preferred option, although the choice is yours.

For multiple fixtures, you simply select whether you think they will end in a home win, away win or draw.

Both teams to score

Again, it is a fairly straightforward process – predict if both sides will find the net in a specific fixture.

This requires slightly more research into the form guide. Ideally, you are looking for teams who are lethal in attack, and those who tend to be vulnerable in defence.

A positive aspect of this market is that you can literally play to the full-time whistle. So even if the result is beyond doubt – for example, one of the teams holds a commanding 4-0 lead – all it takes is for the other to net a consolation at the death to keep your accumulator on track.


Once again, you are looking for teams associated with plenty of goals – whether it be scoring or conceding them.

This means that you’re betting on a match to include a total of over or under a certain amount of goals. Over 2.5 goals tends to be the most popular line, although you can also go under or switch the number. The choice is entirely yours.

So if you bet on over 2.5 goals, and three or more goals are scored in the game, your bet’s a winner. Zero, one or two goals won’t be enough!

Anytime goalscorer

Another popular choice, you can select a handful of different players to find the net in your selected fixtures.

Again, so long as your chosen players are on the field, you are in with a shout right up to the final whistle.

The odds tend to be a little shorter compared to most markets. Nevertheless, the more selections you make, the bigger your rewards if successful.

Double chance

Fancy a team to avoid defeat but not necessarily pick up a win? Then the double chance market is the one for you.

This particular bet allows you to bet on a team to win or draw a game. However, if you’re backing a favourite, then remember that you’re essentially betting on an outsider to not win a game, so you’re not likely to get very big odds and would need to combine a lot of these selections for a good value accumulator.

Asian handicap

Asian handicaps are a little more complicated than the other markets listed above. They essentially offer a ‘virtual lead’ for one team over the other side.

Betting on a team with a +0.5 Asian Handicap essentially gives them a 0.5 goal head-start, and with the Asian Handicap eliminating the chance of a draw, you’re basically betting on a double chance bet as above.

It’s a little more complicated when you select a +/- 0.25 or 0.75 handicap. Here there are more variables, where you can potentially win 50% of your bet and earn 50% of your stake back, or you need a team to win (or not win) by more than one goal.

What are the benefits of Accumulator Betting?

One of the main benefits of accumulator betting is the variety that it brings. Indeed, there are so many different markets, matches, leagues and sports available to you.

Placing multiple bets as opposed to just one enhances your betting experience further, and certainly gets the adrenaline pumping.

Correctly calling several outcomes will definitely give you bragging rights and make you an expert among your mates.

More importantly – and undoubtedly the most beneficial aspect to accumulator betting – the more accurate selections you make, the greater the financial rewards.

How to Place an Accumulator Bet?

While it varies slightly depending on the bookmaker or sportsbook, the process is generally the same.

You simply find the league or fixture on which you wish to place your bets and add that selection to your bet slip. Then applying the accumulator option under the multiples section, add as many selections to your acca as you desire.

placing an Accumulator Bet

Sometimes, you can navigate to specific coupon pages – i.e. full-time result or both teams to score – and simply tick those you wish to add to your slip.

Once you’re happy, enter your stake, place your bet, sit back and watch the action unfold with excitement.

football acca bet

How are Accumulator Odds calculated?

It may seem complicated, but the way accumulator odds are calculated is really quite simple.

In order to find the final odds, simply multiply your stake by the odds of your first selection. Once that’s done, you multiply the total by the odds of your second selection.

You can keep doing that until the end of your bet to work out the final odds.

So for example, if you had a £10 bet with selections of 2/1, 5/1, 1/5 and 1/1 here’s how your accumulator returns would work out.

£10 x 2/1 = £30

£30 x 5/1 = £180

£180 x 1/5 = £216

£216 x 1/1 = £432 total returns.

Are Accumulator Bets worth it?

Well, it depends on your outlook.

Of course, the higher odds that come with accumulators epitomise the greater risk involved due to making multiple selections as opposed to just one.

Therefore, you must be prepared to lose more bets than you win if you wish to regularly bet in this manner.

But on the other hand, if you want to play it safer with smaller stakes and the chance of winning big, then it is definitely a worthwhile experience.

How to win on Accumulators

As with most things in life, preparation is key.

To give yourself the best chance of winning on accumulators; research, research and research some more.

We can help you out there. Indeed, our team of tipsters take factors like form, statistics and team news into consideration when providing our accumulator betting tips.

Either using these as a guide or going to similar lengths yourself will give you the best possible chance of a successful outcome.

Accumulator FAQs

What are the chances of winning an accumulator bet?

There are many variables when it comes to the likelihood of winning your accumulator bet and indeed the best indication of how likely your bet is to win is the final price you are given before placing the bet.

An accumulator bet with four favourites on is far more likely than an accumulator bet with eight outsiders – but the returns on the second of those two bets would be much higher.

We’ll do our best to offer the best accumulator tips on this page for each action-packed day – but we cannot guarantee any winnings unfortunately. That’s the nature of football.

Which betting company are the best for accumulator betting

Before deciding on a betting company to use for your accumulator bets, just check the above table to see what their new customer offers are and what extra incentives they offer to place your accumulator bet with them.

Among our favourites from outside of that list include Bet UK, whose ‘Acca Club’ allows you to get a £5 Free Bet AND Profit Boosts every week and Betfair, who have a brilliantly designed app that allows you to place your accumulators easily and check for their latest enhanced odds to boot.

What is an accumulator bet?

An accumulator bet is when you combine multiple bets for a longer odds selection.

Your bets can be selected from different matches, different competitions and even different sports – but if one leg fails, then the bet fails altogether.

As such, you should be sure of your selections and perhaps look for lower-odds favourites in order to give yourself the best chance of making a return on an accumulator bet.

How are accumulator odds worked out?

Put simply, accumulator odds are worked out by multiplying your running total after each winning bet by the next odds in the multiple.

So if you have three selections all at 1/1 and you have placed a £10 stake on your accumulator, you would get £20 returns from the first bet. Thus, your second bet would return £40 and finally as an accumulator, your bet would return £80 – including your £10 stake.
