    If you’re looking to have a bet from the many football fixtures which take place all through the weekend, it can make a lot of sense to combine all of your favoured Match Result markets into an accumulator. Every football fan will decide to build their footy acca in a different way, with Both Teams To Score markets and Over 2.5 Goals markets allowing for enhanced versions of this bet, but nothing quite comparing to the traditional football accumulator bet.

    With lots of different teams to consider from all over Europe, North America and anywhere else where football is being covered by the bookmakers, fans of the sport are able to add in any team they choose. But with a lot of punters basing their bets around the Championship, it’s clear to see the amount of value from forming accumulator tips based on games back in the UK.

    Made up of four or more selections, accumulators provide far stronger bookie odds based on the number of teams you add in and the price for each included selection. Most of the accumulator tips that you’ll find online or elsewhere are made from around six likely Match Result selections, with the overall price ranging from around 15/1 and 40/1 depending on how risky you’re looking to bet.

    Making a Championship acca

    Despite it being the second tier in English football, some fans of the sport will label the Championship as being the toughest league in the world. This has led to more bets being made on it and more effort to edge away from betting on the Premier League, especially with the odds for favourites in the top tier not being all too generous these days.

    The unpredictability of the Championship can make this difficult but it’s possible to work out who’s likely to win based on your own research. As the main priority for Championship teams is to get promoted, you’ll eventually be able to see who is likely to win based on their consistency for a promotion push. This could also become an indication for Anytime Goalscorer, Over 2.5 Goals, Handicap or Both Teams To Score bets.

    Accumulator betting

    Whether you’re betting on a high-scoring win for Leeds United on home soil or if you’d rather go for a current favourite to take three points away, you’re able to add all of these Match Result selections into an acca with a strong chance of it landing. This is especially true if you conduct the sort of research that you’ll see on websites like Footy Accumulators; it’s possible to be just as meticulous if you know what to look for.

    Even by merely looking at the current form of each involved team in the match you’re betting on, you should gain some insight for your acca prediction. You can also check out the past results between these two sides when they’ve met in previous seasons or look into the likely players to take part, as a key player missing for either side could seriously affect the outcome of the match you’re betting on.
