Betfred are one of the leading online bookmakers when it comes to betting on football, with this bookie providing customers with a wide range of accumulator options across a host of European football leagues.
In this Betfred review, we look at why you should consider opening a Betfred account and the benefits you can expect to enjoy as a customer. We look at the various accumulator options and how they compare to some of the bookies.
How to Place an Football Accumulator with Betfred
The first port of call is to visit the “Football” section of the Betfred website. You will then be given the choice of various “Competitions” such as:
- Premier League
- Spanish La Liga
- Serie A
- Champions League
Alternatively, you can head to the “Coupons” section where the games are ordered according to categories such as:
- European Longlist
- UK Long List
- In-Play Longlist
- BTTS & Match Result
- Goals Galore
Once you have accessed your chosen “Competition” or “Coupon”, you can then start building your accumulator. You will initially be presented with the 1×2 betting odds where you pick either the home win, the draw or the away win for each match. As you click on a selection, the online bet slip is automatically populated.
You should also be able to see the odds for the accumulator once you have added at least four selections and you can see other multiple bet options such as Lucky 15, Doubles and Trebles should you wish to combine different legs together.
Can I Place an Over / Under 2.5 Goals Acca with Betfred?
The short answer is yes, although the navigation involves you going into the markets for each particular match and adding the Over 2.5 Goals selection or the Under 2.5 Goals selection according to what you think will happen in the match.
If you’re on the 1×2 coupon featuring the latest matches, you need to click on “More Bets” in order to find additional markets.
How to Cash Out Your Acca at Betfred
Betfred are among those bookmakers who provide customers with an opportunity to Cash Out their football accumulator and it means you always have a choice to take the Cash Out option before the bet is either settled as a winner or a loser. You will notice that Betfred have a particular Cash Out symbol next to any betting market where you can come out of the bet early.
On your Betfred bet slip, you have three different options. There is the Betslip where you can put together your accumulator selections, the Open Bets part where you can see the bets that still haven’t been settled and also a Cash Out section. Cash Out will show you all bets which are eligible to be cashed out and the money that is available.
Once you have placed a football acca with Betfred, you can then see the Cash Out value that is available and that should be loosely similar to your original stake. Therefore, if you have placed a £10 acca on the Premier League, then you should see a Cash Out amount of around £10 before any of the matches have been played.
If the games in your acca kick off at different times, then you can see if the first leg wins before deciding whether the new Cash Out amount appeals. The same applies with the second leg and so on. If some of the games in your acca are all taking place at the same time, then your Cash Out value should be available In-Play and will tend to go up or down in accordance with the latest scores.
Claim Acca Insurance on the Top Football Leagues
Once of the reasons I enjoy placing football accas with Betfred is the fact that you can claim Acca Insurance if you get narrowly close with your online wager only to find that one leg lets you down. There’s nothing more annoying that hitting the post with your accumulator although Fred are spot on when it comes to refunding your stake.
Acca Insurance is a simple promotion and I’ve regularly found myself with money back as a free bet. You can claim up to £10 back with this offer and it applies to the Full-Time Result betting market which is also known as 1×2. You also need to place a footy accumulator that includes at least five selections and that’s generally my idea of an acca in the first place.
The odds for each leg also need to be at least 1/3 (1.33) or bigger. As you know, my policy is to try and avoid the really short prices so again, this isn’t too much of a problem. It still gives customers scope to add odds-on shots to their acca at prices such as 1/2 or 4/6 while being able to qualify for this promotion.
Punters should note that Acca Insurance only applies to certain football leagues although the good news is that there are loads that form part of this promotion and here is an up-to-date list:
English Premier League, Championship, League 1 & 2, National League, FA Cup, League Cup, EFL Trophy, Champions League, Europa League, Scottish Premiership, Scottish Championship, Scottish League 1 & 2, Scottish FA Cup, Scottish League Cup, Spanish La Liga, World Cup, European Championships, UEFA Nations League, International Friendlies, German Bundesliga, Italian Serie A, French Ligue 1, Dutch Eredivisie, Portuguese Super Liga, Coupe de France, Coupe de la Ligue, DFB Pokal, Coppa Italia and Copa Del Rey.
Enjoy Betting on Goals Galore with Betfred
As the old adage goes, when both teams score, it’s Goals Galore! Betfred deserve credit for pioneering the Goals Galore football coupon which has now been replicated by a large number of other bookmaker websites. It’s a simple concept and involves building a football accumulator where you pick out the matches where both teams will find the net during the ninety minutes.
Indeed, the Goals Galore coupon doesn’t have any set odds for each match, although you have a guaranteed price based on the number of games you have selected. For example, if you pick three matches for Goals Galore, then you will be given odds of 3/1. A four-leg accumulator pays odds of 5.5/1 and any acca with five selections means you get odds of 10/1.
As you can see, the Goals Galore coupon is always packed with football matches from a number of different competitions and I would advise readers not to get too greedy and pick out a large number of selections. A tasty five-fold at 10/1 would do very nicely for the majority of punters and there are some matches where the BTTS Yes selection is trading short and they can be added in.
The WhatAcca Verdict on Betfred
We really like placing football bets with Betfred and it’s clear that this bookie caters well for customers looking to enjoy an accumulator bet on a regular basis. They are more tailored towards providing accas on the Full-Time Result market, although Over / Under 2.5 Goals backers can also go down this route with a little more navigation involved.
You should also be able to claim a welcome bonus as a new customer and the Goals Galore coupon is worth checking out, while Cash Out is available on a regular basis.
I am not a prolific user of my Betfred account, I must admit, but it’s still a very useful account for me to have open. They are improving as well which has led me to use them more.
If the ‘Enhanced Accas’ or ‘TV specials’ don’t attract you then maybe you’ll get saved by acca insurance on your acca’s!
