How to Win at Football Accumulator Betting Every week, millions of football accumulator bets are placed across various bookmaker websites, with customers picking out their selections and combining them in a multiple before waiting to see if each leg is settled as a winner.

While a lot of punters like to choose different football teams for their accumulator, our acca tips don’t just focus on the Full-Time Result betting market where you simply choose the home team, draw or away team when making a selection.

We might alternatively choose a football betting market such as Over/Under 2.5 Goals, especially if we have a stronger view on the number of goals that will be scored in the match rather than the actual outcome at the full-time whistle.

Our football acca tips often focus on the Both Teams to Score market and that’s particularly because this is a simple two-way betting market which simply involves choosing either “Yes” or “No” for a particular match.

BTTS is great because you’re not even worried about the number of goals being scored in the match, let alone whether a particular team is going to win or not. You either choose “Yes” and want both teams to score or “No” and cheer on at least one team drawing a blank.

Don’t Pick Too Many Football Acca Selections

Many betting customers fall into the trap of getting greedy with their football accumulator picks. Ideally, your accumulator should have between 4-6 selections depending on the odds for each leg. If you’re picking four even money shots, then you might not want to boost your acca any further, although going for big odds-on favourites might mean you need more legs to get a satisfactory price.

Our acca tips would normally go for five picks and it’s sometimes the case that we might mix and match the different football markets. For example, we might choose Liverpool to win but also Over 2.5 Goals in the Manchester derby. There’s also the opportunity to combine selections from different football leagues.

Indeed, a popular European football accumulator might feature leading teams such as Manchester City, Liverpool, Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Juventus. However, some punters prefer to do an accumulator which focuses on games happening the same day. That means that you will have your bet settled as a winner or a loser.

Man o'War Man o’War’s career spanned 21 races, and in those events, the stallion won 20 times. Foaled in 1917, Man o’War wasn’t just a fantastic race horse but a national hero in post-World War I America. The stallion’s career lasted just two years before he was put out to stud; but in that time, a legend was created.

Trained by Louis Feustel, Man o’War made his official race debut at Belmont Park in June 1919 and he won the race by six lengths. The horse’s next three races would all come within 17 days, and the majestic stallion won them all.
Man o’War’s rookie season wasn’t over and the stallion continued to be entered into races and he collected win after win. In all, Man o’War triumphed at five major races in 1919, and following the season, he was awarded the American Champion Two-Year-Colt Award.

Man o’War followed up his debut season with an even better showing in 1920. The stallion had a new jockey installed in the saddle. Clarence Kummer was given the reins and the duo didn’t look back.

When Man o’War’s three-year-old season dawned, his owner Samuel Riddle, decided against running the Kentucky Derby. His focus was on the Preakness Stakes, a race he far preferred. Riddle’s focus paid off as Man o’War won the race in his first event of the season. Eleven days later, the stallion won the Withers Stakes. Next up was the Belmont Stakes which saw Man o’War set a world record time of 2:14 1/5.

Further triumphs included the Dwyer Stakes, Jockey Club Gold Cup and Travers Stakes. By the time the season ended, Man o’War would be crowned American Horse of the Year.

At the end of the 1920 season Man o’War was retired to stud. Six years later, Man o’War became the leading sire and remained in the top two for three of the next 10 years.

In 1943, after a successful racing and stud career, Man o’War passed away from a heart attack. He was 30-years old when he died. In 1957, Man o’War was voted into the US Racing Hall of Fame.
