Make Soccer Saturday a fun afternoon!
One of the best ways to enjoy betting on football at the weekend is without doubt with the use of an accumulator. You can predict the outcome – win, lose or draw – of a certain number of matches and if they come in you could be quid's in.
The beauty of accumulators is that you end up going crazy when a team you have no affiliation with grabs a last-minute equaliser. It makes watching Soccer Saturday even more epic than usual too, because so many results matter.
With this in mind, I tend to do an accumulator across all leagues and this is what I will be going for this week. Let's keep it nice and neat for now and go for two teams from the Premier League, Championship, League One, League Two and Scottish Premier League.
Everybody has different selections though and that is part of the fun. You can get together with a group of mates, betting slip in hand and watch the results come in. Let's try and recreate this feeling with GYBO as the middle man! Make sure you let us know how you get on.
Here are my selections for this week covering fixtures on the 25th August 2012.
Aston Villa v Everton – Aston Villa @ 21/10
Tottenham v West Brom – Tottenham @ 8/15
Blackburn Rovers v Leicester City – Leicester @ 11/5
Blackpool v Ipswich Town – Blackpool @ 1/1
Swindon Town v MK Dons – Swindon @7/5
Carlisle United v Portsmouth – Carlisle @ 6/5
Torquay United v Rochdale – Torquay @ 23/20
Morcambe v Port Vale – Morcambe @ 7/5
Aberdeen v Hearts – Hearts @ 15/8
Inverness v Celtic – Celtic @ 1/2
A stake of £2 on these selections brings in £7,309 so you can see it can be VERY worthwhile and believe me, they do happen. Friends of mine have won over £10,000 on around eight games before, so back yourself.
It is always nice to have a reserve though, a bit more of a banker. This doesn't mean you are guaranteed to win of course as anything can happen in football, but an accumulator of around four results could give you a nice boost. This is what I have gone for this week –
Chelsea v Newcastle United – Chelsea @1/2
Liverpool v Manchester City – Manchester City @ 7/5
Middlesbrough v Crystal Palace – Middlesbrough @ 4/5
Sheffield Wednesday v Millwall – Sheffield Wednesday @ 21/20
A stake of £2 on this one returns £26.57, a nice boost to your account to cover your accumulator money for a few weeks.
Each week, I will be letting you know how I get on. Will it be a big win or will one or two teams let me down? Part of the fun is that anything could happen. Let's finish with a quick tip....
