  2. Wow jon, got my first mail last night, had £3 on, then 2nd one tonight but could only afford £2 and it came in, thankyou so mucn, your a star, Sandra

    • Hi Jon, Sandra here, missed last 4 bets as was in spam, I thought was strange not showing in inbox, I just checked to see if bets had come in and each different date I checked, all came up as 31st. October bet, don’t know if I doing something wrong, waiting for today’s Accra if there is one, but nothing come through on spam or inbox, love doing your access, don’t know why not getting them to inbox, kind regards Sandra

  3. Thanks Jon buzzing with win last night nice little helper for Xmas coming up

  4. Tks Jon

    I like your strategy 😉
    Is possible have all your bettings history for the last 3 years?


  5. Hi Jon,

    Sterling effort again last night.
    One goal was the difference in landing another win.
    Sure your methodolgy will deliver again soon.

    Keep up the good work.

  6. hi Jon
    just wanted to show my appreciation for your efforts, i enrolled near the start of October and this first months has delivered great profits
    that would have been considerably more for the sake of a goal or two, particularly when we were let down By PSG ! Also by my own mistake i actually
    missed the first winning bet in the month! I think to we have been let down a few other times by teams that although top or near top of their relevant leagues
    have not performed as they should have done, looking forward to a new set of bets throughout November,
    again well done and thanks for the service

    • Cheers Ian, appreciate it.
      There is often that one who let’s you down but lets hope we cash in again soon whilst we’re in a profit. I have a good feeling about Nov as we’ve been ever so close on a number of accas!

  7. Great stuff Jon. Keep up the good work.

  8. Wow! Jon, I see goodies coming up,though I just came in today,this site looks like what I have been looking for, for the past 5 years of betting. Well Jon, am yet to play your bet, but I feel like spreading the word already. Stev

  9. Hi Jon.
    I am French.
    I would like to know what is the best bookmaker to play “acca” with Asian Handicap (example : Manchester -0.25)
    It seems that there are not a lot aof bookmaker who offer “-0.25/+0.025” and similar, except Bet365.
    Do you think we could be limited very quickly with Bet365 if we have a lot of wins with this king of bets ?
    Sory, for my English…
    Thank you.

    • Hi Thierry,

      Nice question. Well 365 is normally a safe bet. They have plenty of asian markets and are happy to take (and payout) on acca bets.

      All of my recommended bookmakers offer asian markets or similar. If you cant see it listed as ‘asian handicap’ it can be found under ‘handicap’ or ‘match handicap’, it varies for each bookmaker.

      By betting accas, we are far less likely to be restricted as most bookies like to take these on as its multiple selections.

      Here’s my list of must have accounts which are currently serving me well –

      Thanks for reaching out and best of luck with your bets.


    • Hi Thierry,

      Nice question and thanks for asking.

      All the bookmakers on this page are who I use personally and who i recommend. All of these also offer asian handicap markets. If its not listed as ‘asian handicap’ then you will find it under ‘handicap’ or ‘match handicap’.

      365 are normally the best for asian handicap betting as they offer it on nearly all matches. They are also happy to take acca bets and will payout on big wins for sure.

      You normally find asian handicap odds slightly better than standard handicap though so always worth checking if you want to maximise returns.

      Cheers for the question and best of luck with your betting.


  10. Hi Jon, i signed up to will hill through your site but i am noticing a lot of differences in their prices every week when i access them through different browsers.
    For example, this w/e 9th of Feb, placing your tips on will hill using mozilla firefox the odds were just over 60/1 without bet boost (which i can’t access for some reason) and to place them with the same bookie using IE explorer the odds quoted were just 48,08/1 without bet boost (which i can access usiing IE) and 56.26/1 using it.
    I have emailed WH asking for an explanation for the differences of these prices but i am not holding my breath waiting for a reply.
    I just thought i would let you know about this issue as some punter may be losing out if they access the site using the IE browser instead of firefox. It seems very strange to me that the odds are different on different browsers.
    Thanks for the tips Jon and keep up the good work.

    • Hi Jimmy.

      Wow, I was not aware of this. I will also be contacting them to see what the issue is. When I hear back, I will get in touch.


      • Hi Jon, I’ve just signed up to your selections and I must say I’m very excited.

        I’ve had a look at last season’s win ratio and it excites me as I only hit 2 last season and that really got me down.

        The season starts in a few weeks and I can’t wait to start using your selections.

        All the best and many thanks

        • Great to have you onboard Darren.

          Only takes 4-6 accas per season to finish the season in a profit. All about trusting the system and being strict with your bets!

  11. Unlucky on sat Jon one wrong.

    • Yeah a shame that one! I thought Sheff Utd had enough form to see them off. they did take the lead twice as-well…

  12. Hey Jon,

    Great tips on april 19th, I’ve been working on a splitting image similar strategy to yours and there’s not much of the details that I’ve leftout. I was extatic today when you sent the email (been expecting it for a couple of days, to be fair not too many great games lately until today) and I’ve had a similar matchup selected for myself, but Roschdale vs Wycomb was the same so still a 1 loss in a 5 selections ticket.

    Anyway, it’s great to find a community like this one and I’m really looking forward to see your next suggestions.
    Cheers mate !!!

    • Cheers Seb. I’ve always had success with my strategy and glad to hear you follow a similar pattern.

      Hoping we land another acca before the season is over!

  13. Hi Jon

    First of all well done about your job i am impressed
    I am a big Fan. This season you are published
    more Acca and i think the Odds are a little bit
    Lower than usual its a strategy this to lower the odds?
    Or when you make more acca you need to lower the odds to be me more successful?

    And the last Question are you Full time with what acca?

    • Thanks Gianluca, appreciate the good feedback.
      I’m trying to put out more accas as I’m contacted daily about more acca tips so doing my best here. As for the odds, that just depends on what I fancy each day. I always aim for 20/1 for 5 selections but like this evening I only have 4 selections, so the odds are lower. Over the course of the season the odds will vary and I’m sure a few weeks there will be 30,40,50/1 accas going out!
      I’m not technically full time but I put in more hours than a full time job. It’s my hobby though and I enjoy it.

    Thank you

      I send acca tips via email around 2-4 times a week. Normally in the morning.

      Its best to add [email protected] to your email contacts so receive all the emails without them going to spam/junk inboxes.


  16. I like accumulater on Football bets

  17. I counted 11 games going ahead Sat Jo all National Lge. Im going to do Dover, Sutton, Woking all BTTS and see what you come up with to combine in fact I may do the entire eleven for a pound. I have checked around the World apart from Russia (PP) everywhere. Cheers MC.

    • Thats right MC, as of right now the National League is set to keep the fixtures this weekend. I will double check in the morning and if still the case, we will have a BTTS / Over 2.5 Goals acca for sure!

  18. Jo, as you did so well on the horses any chance of doing a few more horse racing bets in the coming weeks probably selective, that’s if racing does not fall by the wayside. By the way, one of those selections is off so im doing Halifax Win/draw instead, I think! All the best ,im sure you will come up with a solution.

    • Hi Mal, sorry for the late reply. My advice for this period to take a break tbh. I could scrabble around and put a few tips together but I feel a nice break is good from time to time. It will no doubt be frantic when sport resumes, especially as they try to complete the regular seasons!

  19. Thanks a lot. I have been waiting for this moment. Its just arrived. Thank you JON
