Football accumulators on the rise
Minimum outlay with big returns – the rise of the football accumulator in recent years has given punters the opportunity to increase their betting bank balance by only staking a nominal amount.
There are plenty of stories and betting folk-lore that have done the rounds – the story of how one man took home over £50,000 off only a £1 stake, with four very late goals scored on Boxing Day, or the tweeter who missed out on a £140,000 jackpot after Croatia’s Ivan Perisic failed to find the net in the 2018 World Cup.
There are of course, many winners and losers, and with the gambling industry coming more and more into the spotlight is the football accumulator facing something of a dilemma amongst the highly regulated bookmaking industry?
Of course, there are already actions being put in place to push a more responsible attitude to betting – gambling companies recently signed up to a whistle-to-whistle advertising ban – a plan to in effect ban television advertising pre watershed – will this be the end of Ray Winstone? – the industry is becoming more scrutinised more than ever.
Where can I get football accumulator tips? A tried and tested approach

If you do your homework then you really could be onto a winner.
The Freebetshere.com Accumulator
The festive football continues to come thick and fast this weekend with another dose of Premier League and Football League action. And in typical fashion the Freebetshere.com tipsters have put together a tasty little acca.
Claude Puel silenced his critics with two wins in the space of four days. The Foxes stunned Chelsea at Stamford Bridge before heaping more misery on champions Manchester City on Boxing Day and head into Saturday’s clash with Cardiff full of confidence. Meanwhile the visitors are without a win in three league games. Leicester to win 4/7.
Spurs are flying at the moment. Following five wins on the spin Poch‘s side are up to second in the league and five points off leaders Liverpool. They host a Wolves side without a win in two. Spurs win to nil 11/10.
Championship leaders and comeback kings Leeds are on a roll. They’ve scored last minute winners in their last two outings to put them six points clear of third place. On Saturday they face Hull who have won three games on the bounce and are unbeaten in six, I expect that to change on Saturday. Leeds win 8/13.
Looking to keep up the pressure on Leeds Sheffield United host an out of form Blackburn Rovers. Tony Mowbray’s side have won just one of their last eight league games and look iffy at the back. Sheffield United win 8/10.
West Brom maintained their excellent record with a 2-0 victory over Wigan on Boxing Day extending their unbeaten run to eight games. And they entertain Sheffield Wednesday who are incredibly inconsistent this campaign. Baggies win 1/2.
The final leg of the acca is QPR. Steve McClaren’s side are just two points off the playoffs following three consecutive wins. Their opponents on Saturday, Reading, are winless in eight and look to be going down without a fight. QPR win 8/13.
A £10 bet pays around £220. Good luck.
Where to place my accumulator?
Of course, with accumulators being so popular there are many places to put your bet, and there are many ways to take advantage.
Paddy Power for example will give you your money back as a free bet should one leg of your 4 fold acca let you down, while Bet365 will boost your accumulator winnings by 100%, depending on the amount of legs you put in your acca.
How many legs to put in my acca?
The amount of legs you place in your football accumulator, the more your returns are likely to be. However we would recommend not putting too many in as the odds speak for themselves – your simply have very little chance of the bet landing.
Limit yourself to four or five selections – that way you can normally pick up a cashback or money back offer from one of the bookmaker brands without making your acca too difficult to achieve.
As always you should bet in a responsible manner.
