A few do’s and don’ts when betting on football accumulators

If you can’t walkaway then you shouldn’t be betting.

So there it is. Also if you don’t fancy a team in the first place then don’t change your mind. Also it’s good to scour the internet to see what people make of a certain bookmakers customer service help lines. The reason for this is i have included them before and they have been the only team to let me down on more than one occasion. I tend to stick with 4 or 5 teams at the most, even then it’s hard enough. It’s pointless me betting on the Argentinian league or the Brazilian league as i wouldn’t have a clue what i was doing, So i just normally stick to the English leagues, as it’s easier for me to spot a bet that i think is good value.

DON’T ADD TOO MANY TEAMS. Don’t get sucked in by this as they are just as likely (or unlikely) as everyone else to pick a winning accumulator. You can often talk yourself around to the idea of betting on someone else, and in my experience it only leads to disappointment.

If you aren’t enjoying betting on sporting events then you are doing it for the wrong reasons. What this is, is a few tips on what to do and what not to do when betting on football accumulators, no guarantees, no 99.9% accuracy nonsense, just things that in my opinion you NEED to know and realise before even attempting to place your bet. A pointless bet in my opinion.

KNOW YOUR BOOKMAKERS

BET ON WHAT YOU KNOW

KNOW YOUR LIMITS

DON’T CHANGE YOUR MIND

Now and again you will see ex footballers giving their advice on who to pick and who to stay clear of. It’s not a way to make an extra income (although it does feel great when you win) If the enjoyment has gone then it only spells trouble.

I make a point of never including my beloved Stoke City in any of my accumulators. I always pick a 4 team accumulator of 4 draws amongst my bets as the odds for a match finishing all square rarely goes below 2/1.

BET FOR ENJOYMENT

DON’T LISTEN TO THE “EXPERTS”

DON’T ADD TEAMS WHO’S ODDS ARE TOO SHORT

Now most online bookmakers will guarantee the best odds so i don’t pay too much attention when i read that. What i pay attention to is their special offers when signing up and what they offer customers on a regular basis. There are my top 10 tips for gambling on football accumulators. When there is money at stake you want to know that you can get hold of the company in question and get the help you require.

DON’T IGNORE THE DRAW

If you look through the paper and fancy a certain team then make sure you pick them. Go with your initial instinct.

DON’T LET THE HEART RULE THE HEAD

When betting on football i only bet on teams and leagues that i know about. Just because they used to play the game means nothing. It’s easy to have have a blinkered view when it comes to your team.

Now let me start by telling you that this isn’t some great foolproof betting system that never fails as they simply don’t exist. Gambling to me is a form of entertainment, just like going to the cinema is for other people. If you do lose your money then walkaway, it’s as simple as that. They add very little to your overall winnings and there is always the chance that they can let you down and not even win at all. Back your own judgement, nobody elses.

Ok so this is an obvious one but it’s so easy to get caught up in the moment. If you feel the need to bet on quite a few teams then i’d suggest a low stake as the chances of winning are incredibly small.

If a team is 1/7 to win then i don’t even consider it as there is absolutely no value in them. Feel free to leave any comments below.

When picking your teams it is often easy to just go for a team to win and forget about the other result, a draw. Set yourself a limit before you start betting, a figure that you know you can afford to lose. Looking back on it if i was a neutral then i probably wouldn’t have picked them. The chances are that if you don’t they will win and the team you chose in their place at the last minute will let you down. The cold, hard fact is that if you’re betting on accumulators then it’s pretty likely that you’re going to lose, however, if you follow the steps above then i believe you will eliminate some of the most common mistakes made when making your selections. Here’s my guide:

It’s easy to get carried away when filling out your betting slip as you watch the odds rise, sometimes you almost convince yourself that you can’t lose. I thank you for reading and i hope you found this hub helpful
