Whilst wagering on events like the Grand National has always been popular, and horse racing is one of the biggest markets for bookmakers, the rise of football betting in recent years is nothing short of phenomenal. Some estimates claim up to 70% of all sports bets are now placed on the beautiful game.
Due to their only being three possible outcomes in any football game the odds quoted on any one game can be very low. Forcing punters to make big bets for modest profits, many people aren't comfortable risking large sums for little payouts. The accumulator addresses this problem by allowing you to bet small but win big.
Online bookmakers have responded quickly to the demand and offer acca's on nearly any type of market. However, one of most popular types of acca is the ‘Saturday Coupon'. You must pick winners from the list of games the bookie has compiled.
They don't make it easy, often grouping matches in a way that makes more difficult to find a winner. In fact we don't recommend you do these coupon type accas, the odds are weighted heavily in the favour of the bookies. It's much better to roll your own acca and we'll show you how to do that effectively with our easy to follow guides – click here to get started.
