As you will probably be aware, I only promote a handful of bookmakers on my site. This is mainly because I believe that they are the best for accumulator betting. They all provide excellent value, and not just in terms of pricing.
That being said, there are some that perform better than others on a day-to-day basis. This article, on the best value bookmaker for accumulator betting, will show you which bookmakers consistently come out as top performers in terms of the price you get every day. There will be times when my top bookmakers don’t come out on top, but this is likely to be pretty rare; at least, from my experience, anyway.
#1 Bookmaker for value – BetVictor; Click here for £25 Free Bet
BetVictor were actually voted the best-valued bookmaker for football betting throughout the 2013-14 season by OddsChecker.com, who are an independent odds comparison company. On average, BetVictor were above the median price across the industry 71% of the time. To put this into perspective, Bet365, ranked 2nd, came out at 35%.
The most impressive thing about this award is the margin of victory. They are more than double the number of bet365, which surprised even myself somewhat being, as you will know, a big fan of bet365.
On top of that, BetVictor offer a really competitive free bet offer where they will match your opening deposit 100% up to £25. Simply click this link to register your account and the tracking code that’s included with the link will mean you can claim your free bet immediately.

#2 Bookmaker for value – bet365; Click here for £200 deposit bonus (no bonus code required)
As I’ve mentioned, bet365 finished second in the Oddschecker.com list, with still a very credible 35%. They are a fantastic alternative to BetVictor and in my humble opinion, probably a better overall package (inclusion of live streaming probably sways it for me).
Between the two they are head and shoulders above anyone in terms of value and I could probably count on one hand the number of times that other bookmakers have provided a better price outside these two (excluding promotions).
One thing that bet365 do have over BetVictor is a much more lucrative sign up bonus. You can get a 100% match on deposits between £10 and £200 when you register a new account by clicking on this link.
It’s probably worth checking out my article on how to open an account with bet365, which also includes a more detailed look at how to claim your deposit bonus. Also, I’ve written an extensive review if you are looking to find out more about the company and my thoughts on them.
Just how good is BetVictor?
I wanted to quickly show you just how far ahead BetVictor is in terms of pricing. To do this I’m going to pick a couple of completely random acca bets and compare them between the other bookmakers that I promote to see how much extra money you could be winning.
I’ve picked a 5-fold acca completely at random and it just happens the first league I came across was a huge nights football in the English Conference Premier! But, this is actually great as it’s so random and perfect for my test.
The four selections I made were the first four in the list:
- Alfreton Town
- Forest Green
These are the results. (The links below will take you to each respected bookmakers review page so you can find out a little more information on them, if you wish!)
- £1 bet at BetVictor = £97.63
- £1 bet at Sky Bet = £87.55
- £1 bet at bet365 = £86.03
- £1 bet at BetFred = £84.15
- £1 bet at William Hill = £84.15
- £1 bet at Paddy Power = £69.30
As you can see, BetVictor have romped home and they will get you over £10 more for every bet you place than the second place Sky Bet. Staggeringly, they will get you almost £30 for every £10 than that of Paddy Power (I actually double checked I had the right selections in Paddy Power as I couldn’t believe how far away they were).
I know I keep harping on about shopping around for the best odds and being open to the idea of using multiple bookmakers, but hopefully this should show exactly why I do so. Just think if you’d put a £10 bet on the above acca with Paddy Power. If you’d shopped around and seen the BetVictor price, then you’d have won nearly £300 more for a few minutes research!
The stats really do speak for themselves here and it just goes to show why BetVictor are so strong in the industry these days. They might not have the bells and whistles that bet365 do, but in terms of best value bookmaker for accumulator betting, they are miles ahead!
